Good morning! Let’s talk family tradition. 🙂 We always have a big Sunday dinner with all the fixings’ right after church. Usually we have a main dish like roast or chicken, rolls that have been rising on the stove & several side dishes to go along with that. Unfortunately, week days don’t always leave as much time to cook a big family dinner, but we do like to carry on the tradition of eating dinner together as a family. That’s why I love using a few short cuts (like Idahoan Signature Russets Mashed Potatoes) to make quick & delicious weekday meals. Idahoan potatoes help make every meal taste like Sunday. In addition to letting you know about these new potatoes from Idahoan, I’ll be sharing some tips on Making Time for Family Dinner. Let’s get started!

Let’s get to those family dinner tips! You’ve got to put family dinner on the schedule. Make it a priority to eat together as a family as much as you can. I know it can get a little crazy when the kids get older & you all have different schedules. It will be so worth it though! I love having time to talk to one another & catch up on our days. Make family dinner a special time. At our family dinners we don’t watch TV & electronics are not allowed at the table. It’s a time to talk to each other! Check out our fun Family Question Jar. It was a hit! Remember it’s never too late to start! Make family dinner a habit now! 🙂 I also try to make dinner simple & easy. I cook in bulk & freeze meals for later or use crock pot meals for easy dinner options. I also like to have easy to prepare things like Idahoan Signature Russets Mashed Potatoes stocked in my pantry. They are easy to grab & go when I’m in a hurry. Plus who doesn’t love mashed potatoes? 😉

Idahoan Potatoes

The secret, of course, to the great taste of new Idahoan Signature Russets mashed potatoes is that Idahoan potatoes grown to perfection in Idaho’s rich volcanic soil during its warm summer days and cool summer nights. In fact, more than six pounds of premium Idahoan russet potatoes go into every 16 oz. pouch. But beyond that, Idahoan is innovating the category with its new proprietary processing method that maintains the potato’s natural goodness and texture. The result: mashed potatoes that taste as good as if you peeled, boiled, and mashed them yourself. What do new Signature Russet Mashed Potatoes taste like? They have a nice smooth taste like original homemade mashed potatoes with just a hint of butter and cream. New Idahoan Signature Russets can be made in only five minutes using milk and butter…or just water!
