Note: Check the dates on the boxes and buy only at one of the larger stores.
After Wilma we used milk on cereal at near room temp with no ill effects.

For cooking, I used Santa Clara brand, which is available at Mega only.
Real Potatoes here are not Russets, and are what I would call a "New Potatoe" (thin skin) so I only use them for a baked potatoes, or potato salad (I also use the little potatoes, white or red to make salad).
To make a reasonably good baked potato from what is available here (thin skins), I rub the bugger in olive oil, then wrap in foil and put in the oven at 350 for about 1.5 hours...
For excellent instant potatoes I use Maggi brand. You can find small boxes at Ched's or you can go to Pac's and find Maggi and Russet Instant available in large bags.
The key to making good instant mashed potatoes is to use 1 part water, 2 parts milk (Santa Clara), butter, salt and pepper. If you need to thin it, use sour cream, or more milk.
You can also add chives (which I grow here)and cheese if you like the flavor.
When I make Meatloaf, I use ground pork, and sirloin, egg, and make my own breadcrumbs (I use the toast that you purchase in the bread isle)a little milk, onion, chives, green and red pepper, some tomato soup for moisture, and S&P.
I know this is off topic, but I am making Onion soup right now. In a crock pot, add two cans, Caldo de RES, two cans of water to pot. Saute two large onions, in butter and/or Jungo or Soy sauce until brown. Cook 12/24 hours for the best Onion soup.
Add Cheese to top and brown in broiler with a couple of croutons.
I have never had Black eyed peas, I'd sure give it a try though.
The most important thing in life is not knowing everything, it's having the phone number of somebody who does!

I've tried using sour cream and I've tried using crema and it still doesn't taste as it should or even have the proper texture despite being whipped back to the stone age. So maybe it's the potatoes.

Just noticed my stock from Costco expired. Drat.
They will probably have it at Sam's Club.
