Healthier Mashed Potatoes

Comfort food - meatloaf, green bean casserole and mashed potatoes.  Also known as food for a man's man or a woman who apparently doesn't care about her waist line! I mean I do care, but its so hard to practice self control this time of the year when food and booze I'm not telling you this was the healthiest dinner ever, because clearly it wasn't, but I did lighten up the mashed potatoes by using Greek yogurt in place of sour cream, and the hubs said it was the best dinner since Thanksgiving.  I took that as a huge compliment, but now I realize Thanksgiving was only 2 weeks ago not so sure...but still I'll take it.  The meatloaf was: Pioneer Woman's Favorite meatloaf and I used Campbell's green bean casserole recipe so with those 2 things being sure beats for delicious I was willing to take a chance with the potatoes and I am glad I did.  Recipe after the jump!

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas!

Toys in every store!
 There are festive mantles

And GT Santas

the best kind

Christmas Trees all a glow

man someone should put a skirt on that tree...

And more Santas

I just love this time of year, putting out all the decorations, fun times with friends, eating so much my pants don't fit, never mind who said that, wine at every party...tonight is my tennis teams' ornament exchange.  It is always such a fun time and usually there is one more bottle of wine than attendee so it is really fun and we play dirty Santa with ornaments - I hope I get a good one.  I am making brie baked in puff pastry with nuts and brown sugar - so good, especially with a glass of merlot.  What is your favorite Christmas party?
