Skoodgeled hamburger with onions; mashed potatoes; broccoli – 2 December 2016

main161202setting161202D had used about 1/2 pack (1/4 lb) of a frozen hamburger aliquot while I was gone, so the rest needed using. D suggested mashing some potatoes, so I did that (Yukon Golds, all we normally have, though I think Russets do better for mashing) and he cooked up the hamburger, starting with chopped onion, and adding some spices, which included Worcestershire sauce. To mash the potatoes, I mashed them first (by hand with a nice masher) and then added butter, salt, and a bit of milk and mixed well.

I made small pieces, peeled stems, steamed 4 minutes and tossed in melted butter and salt, as usual.

And of course, the only way to eat this is to skoodgle the hamburger and potatoes together!

I brought home two Ethel M chocolates, the dark ones that Mom did not prefer, and we had those for dessert.
