Who Needs Chocolate When You Can Have Mashed Potatoes

A valentine weekend of mashed potatoes at somerville kitchen. Calorie counts are not allowed until tomorrow. Happy Valentine everyone.

Saturday - Braised Chicken with Mashed Potatoes

A tasty braised chicken recipe from the January issue of Bon Appetit. Chicken simmering in a mixture of tomatoes, wine, port, dijon mustard, red peppers, onions, garlic, and bay leaves produced a delicious thick tomato gravy to go over the potatoes.

Served with steamed-then-butter-glazed carrots and fried chard with garlic and lemon.

Sunday - Meat Loaf with Mashed Potatoes

Somerville meat loaf (click for recipe) with mashed potatoes, Knorr Swiss roast gravy enhanced with mushrooms and wilted spinach with onions and lemon.

And a Sunday dinner is not complete without Janice Wong's Chow popovers (more on those at Sunday Dinner Accompaniments entry).

Monday - Popovers with Mashed Potatoes

Those popovers yesterday were so good that I made them again (and more of them) today. 

They were then split in half, stuffed with mashed potatoes and covered with what would typically be the filling of chicken pot pie (chicken, vegetables and dill in a creamy sauce).
