Mashed Potatoes for Fifty

 My assignment this Thanksgiving was to bring the mashed potatoes.  There were 46 of us dining together.
 The potatoes were Red Bliss fresh from western Mass.
They traveled two hours south to Connecticut.
It was a job too big for foil, so we used the next best thing:
our emergency blanket.
They stayed warm!
They were enjoyed by many.
There were leftovers.
The dishes stayed right where they were until Friday morning.

Good call on the emergency blanket- I would have never thought of that.I was wondering how you guys were going to serve everything warm with only one kitchen and stove.

I'll take mashed potatoes for fifty, Alex. As in Trebek.

That's a lot of mashed potatoes!! And lots of people, too. Glad everyone had a fun time. I understand there were 13 pies for the pie contest. That's a lot of pies!
