mashed potatoes with a spinach twist

I wanted to make some seasoned potatoes for dinner and noticed a 10 pound bag of potatoes for $1.99.  It was cheaper than buying two individual potatoes, so I went for the bulk purchase.  In light of trying to use up 8 pounds of potatoes I found a Potato Spinach Casserole recipe on allrecipes.com.  OK so I didn't follow the recipe exactly and ended up with mashed potatoes with spinach in it- but it tasted super yum and my tummy was satisfied!  My additions are italicized below.



Ingredients
7 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons chopped green onions
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
6 cloves garlic
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 2 quart casserole dish. I didn't do this part
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and garlic and cook until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and mash.
In a large bowl combine mashed potatoes, spinach, sour cream, butter, green onions, salt and pepper. Spoon into prepared dish.
Bake for 15 minutes. Top with cheese and bake 5 minutes longer. I didn't do this part either, I was hungry


I should also note that I gifted myself a Canon 60D and this is my first food photo!  Better quality photos to come shortly...I hope!! 


Smile and say Cheese!!
