    I really like potato mash made from dehydrated flakes mixed with soy milk and chives, top it off with two poached eggs; add s&p and freshly ground nutmeg - et voilà: one of my favorite meals :blush:

    Kale is absolutely disgusting.

    I agree!

    I like it raw, mixed with other greens in a salad. Cooked, not so much.

    Me, too Suzy. But I can’t even chop it for a salad. I have to buy the bagged salad mix because I want it chopped really, really fine.

    I love this thread!

    Rice pudding is vile! Any dessert that calls up rice and bread is disgusting - I'm looking at your bread and butter pudding. Spinach and pumpkin are the work of the devil. Wholemeal pasta should be banned. Eggs are overrated.

    White rice, white bread, potatoes and pasta from normal, non-wholemeal flour are gifts from God

    Instant mashed potatoes are actually really good.

    We grew up on instant mashed potatoes: our mother worked fulltime, and they were a real time saver for her. While I do like mashed potato made from whole potatoes better, I have no complaint about instant.

    I never had them until I was an adult and they taste weird to me, but of course it makes sense it's what you are used to. My mom also worked fulltime, but mashed potatoes have always been something of a holiday/for company kind of dish for us. I love them, but make them rarely, even though they don't actually seem very time consuming.

    Regarding the 'fake' potatoes - I don't think I've ever had them. Perhaps at a crappy little diner during a road trip? How different are they to the real thing?

    They’re not “fake” potatoes. They are made of real potatoes, just dried, not fresh.

    I don’t eat them on their own as a side, but I like certain stews and curries spooned over mashed potatoes, and they work very well for that.

    Ha! That's why I put the word in quotations😉
    I could see using them as a thickener in stews -
    Curious if they use them at places like Denny's/Perkins, etc., ?

    When I had a wisdom tooth removed, I lived off of those Bob Evans mashed potatoes (and ice cream lol) and they are pretty good!

    I won’t eat instant mashed potatoes - I think they are gross and mashed potatoes are so quick and simple to make anyway it doesn’t even seem worth it. But I do like those cheesy boxes of dehydrated scalloped potatoes. Grew up eating them and although they are probably gross too to most people they seem like nostalgic comfort food to me.
