Recipe Challenge 2011: Chicken Fried Steak and Homemade Mashed Potatoes!

 I am making a rare blog appearance on my Lenten journey for a commitment that I started at the beginning of the year.  Kitchen Belleicious' Recipe Challenge 2011!

Last night, I made K-Belle's Chicken Fried Steak for the first time!  It was lots of fun to do and definitely not something I've ever done before!  It turned out pretty well for my first time.  You can find the recipe here!

I also decided to make some homemade mashed potatoes to go with it.  After perusing some recipes on-line, I just decided to make them on my own.

I boiled 5 small brown potatoes, whole with peeling.  After about 25 minutes, I drained the water, put them in a bowl and mashed them (with our meat tenderizer).  

Then I melted 2 tbsp of Smart Balance butter and about 4 tbsp of light sour cream in the microwave.  I added that to the mashed potatoes with some salt, pepper, paprika, and garlic powder.  I mixed and mashed some more, and they were done!  They were my favorite part of the meal, and there are enough leftover to enjoy them tomorrow too!

Hope y'all are doing well! Miss you!  I'll be back after Easter!
