Secret Ingredient Mashed Potatoes

A sneaky way to slip in vegetables.. and I get compliments about having the "best mashed potatoes" quite often... and they never know!!!

Secret Ingredient Mashed Potatoes
2 lbs+ potatoes, washed and chunked (peeled if desired)
1/2 head of cauliflower, washed and chunked
salt, to taste
4-5 Tbs+ butter
2/3 cup+ milk
1 tsp+ granulated garlic, to taste

1. Place potatoes and cauliflower {I like to keep the ratio 2/3 potatoes to1/3 cauliflower} in large pot of boiling water.  Boil 25-30 minutes, until very tender.
2. Drain water.  Add milk, butter, salt and garlic.  Blend with hand mixer.  Adjust amount of ingredients accordingly to taste :)
3. Add any other fun condiments found in your fridge, {i.e., ranch dressing, sour cream, cheese, parsley, etc.}
4. Serve hot!

Step 1: Wash and chunk veggies.

Step 1 con't: Add veggies to boiling water.
