Everything is good in moderation…Mashed potatoes with Parmigiano Reggiano

Everything is good in moderation…

That is a saying we use a lot here in Iceland. The other day I was browsing through old books about food and health, it was rather old book. There was a definition of moderate drinking (alcohol wise).The definition is:
Moderate drinking is one glass a day. Never more than seven glasses a week. Though never more than three on one day.

Everything is good in moderation…

So, there you have it. I started wondering if this could work for other (bad) habits like smoking, drinking coffee or sodas, for people who wants to cut down but not quit.

Everything is good in moderation…

And then it´s a question about the fast food. One Mcdonalds a day. Never more than seven Mcdonalds a week. Though never more than three Mcdonalds each day…

Everything is good in moderation…
potatoes

Mashed potatoes  (for 2)

  • 8 potatoes, boiled and skin off
  • 2-3 tbsp butter
  • 1 pieces of a garlic (or by taste)
  • 3 tbsp parmigiano reggiano
  • Little bit of milk
  • Salt and fresh black pepper

Mash the potatoes in a pot on medium heat with  the butter.  Add the garlic, the parma cheese and some milk until you get the thickness you like.  Salt and pepper by taste.

If you have some hot dogs, fry them on a pan and serve with the mashed potatoes, I always find fried hot dogs go so well with mashed potatoes.
