I’m cheating this year

The first time I made mashed potatoes 15+ years ago, they turned out quite well. The next time I made them, five years later, they turned into glue. The third time I tried to make them, they were very lumpy. I know that was in style at the time, but my husband does not like lumpy. I managed, with help from friends who were over at the time, to get them down to “grainy.” I would have preferred lumpy, but at least my husband could get them down, since they were a consistent texture – consistently bad, but consistent.

So this year, I am cheating. No mashed potatoes at our “week-before-Thanksgiving” traditonal Thanksgiving meal. I’m baking up some small red potatoes smothered in olive oil, salt, pepper, and a bit of garlic. Everything tastes better with garlic!

I found out that I have Autism upon having a son with the same "disorder." Ironically, I was voted, "Most Likely to Succeed," by my high school classmates. But had I been born now, instead of 40+ years ago, I would have been considered a different sort of special. This site was started to encourage other Autistics and the people who love them .
