Comfort Food in a Can

Thrive Life - Food - Mashed Potatoes (2)

Comfort food – food that provides a sense of well being; typically associated with childhood memories or good old-fashioned home cooking!

With less than 3 weeks till we hit the road again, I find myself feeling very stressed! And to anyone who truly knows me, this can lead to stress eating!

I find myself craving comfort foods… my favorite happens to be mashed potatoes and gravy!

There’s nothing more enjoyable than the creamy smoothness of a great bowl of mashed potatoes and gravy! That warm fuzzy feeling you get as you enjoy the taste of the gravy… and every once in a while, finding that delicious lump of real potato!

If you’ve ever made mashed potatoes from scratch, you know exactly what I mean!

But sometimes, in this busy world we live in, making mashed potatoes from scratch is not an option! So, once again, I dug into my pantry of freeze-dried canned goods to make this oh-so-delicious meal of mashed potatoes and pulled pork gravy!
