The Art of Mashed Potato

IMAG0389One day it dawned on me that Feets was becoming a bit fearful of mess! It's tricky living in a rented house, but I can't have a daughter who doesn't enjoy a good bit of whole-hearted ... texture. So I made a batch of mashed potato while she slept, invited a friend round, and we got stuck in with straws, bottle tops and luridly coloured mash. Always worth having a friend round, I find - it doubles the value of the effort of preparing messy activities for a short attention span! IMAG0399
