Buttered Mashed Potatoes:
2 large white potatoes, peeled and cubed (recommended: Russets)
2 tablespoons butter
Salt and pepper
In a large pot, add the potatoes and pour just enough water to fully cover the potatoes. Heat the water over high heat, until the water comes to a rolling boil. Boil the potatoes in water until they are tender and then drain. Place the potatoes back on the heat and stir until the steam dissipates. Add butter, salt and pepper to the pot and then mash together until they reach the desired consistency.
Sauteed Peas and Tomatoes:
1 1/2 cups fresh peas
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup diced tomatoes
In a large pan, saute the peas in butter over medium heat until they are tender or for approximately 7 minutes. Add diced tomatoes to the skillet and continue to saute until all of the flavors combine.
