Steak N Taters

Jon wanted some comfort food.

That means steak and potatoes (or bacon, it depends on the day). I wanted to work on the CLP.

So, we had steak and slow cooker mashed potatoes. We tried them as written and decided we needed to doctor them a bit. They were ok as written. But once we added some cream cheese and garlic powder they were fabulous!

Oh, before I post this recipe I should back up a bit. We tried a sweet n sour chicken the other day. It was ok, we gave it 5 out of 10. It needs some tweaking before I post it for you. We made notes in my big cook book. So, when that is ready, I will share it with all of you :)

So, without further ado, here are the tasty taters.

Here's to you and your culinary adventures, friend. Cheers!
