A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Hoffman Helpful Hint: Colorful Mashed Potatoes – 4 June 2008
By Mary T. Hoffman

When most people hear the words “mashed potatoes,” they probably think (as I’ve always thought) of a pile of white mashed potatoes topped with some sort of gravy.

Another colorful, tasty change to the usual mashed potatoes is our Mashed Potatoes with Carrots, Onions, and Rosemary. For this recipe, visit: 

Next time, we will experiment with fresh or canned spinach for green mashed potatoes. It’s fun to try new ideas!
