Tonight we dine like astronauts.
By which I mean eating processed food….not in tube form but as close as I care to get.
While out shopping for groceries today, my wife and I tried some instant mashed potatoes a product demonstrator was offering that could be passed off as homemade. Considering the low price offered, we bought some. We don’t generally use instant food but these were darn good and not at all like instant mash I was accustomed to from my fine cafeteria dining experiences.
I think the instant mash offered in institutions bears as much resemblance to potatoes as gelatin does to pork; refined beyond recognition. I’m sure I could make an analogue of that stuff with some potato starch and a dietary fibre supplement. Since the stuff is made from potatoes I guess you could write it on the bag…but it would take some nerve.
