The Chef: Liz
The Menu: As you can clearly see, we enjoyed hearty helpings of super-good, super-garlicky mashed potatoes today. Yes, there are other items on the plate, but do any of them really stand out when served next to mashed potatoes? No. OK, to be fair, Liz made a really lovely salad, and attempted a new fusion cuisine that involved making calzones with whole-wheat tortillas instead of pizza dough. She filled the crispy shells with a yummy mixture of marinara, broccoli, and cashews.
The Goods: We are deep in the depths of Trader Joe's Maple Leaf cookies here at the VNHQ, so this savory meal was just the thing to break us out of our sugary routine. Also, it's always a good time for mashed potatoes. Maybe some of us are already looking forward to Thanksgiving!
