What To Do with Mashed Potatoes?

I love mashed potatoes.  I usually make more than anyone can or wants to eat. And to be honest, my kids don't love them as much as I do. I not only love them for the taste, but also for how easy they are to add to any main dish as a side meal. If I don't have a lot of the main meal for everyone to fill up on, these lovely vegetables do the trick of filling up kids while tasting delicious.  Serving them more than once a week however gets a little old.

So I found a solution that makes everyone happy...even me!  These potato cakes make my mashed potatoes the main meal now, with a side of other vegetables and a fruit smoothie completing the meal. It is a nice break from meat while adding variety to our dinner menu.

And they look pretty. :)

And my 13 year old thinks they are fun to make. ANYTHING that gets him in the kitchen with me to hang out by choice, instead of him setting the table and waiting in the living room with the TV is a win. We've tried these with sour cream, baked beans, white sauce and plain. They are always a hit!

Do you know how to store your potatoes until they are ready to be peeled, cut, boiled and mashed?
