My mother always made real potatoes, that's what my father wanted, that's what he got.  I never tasted instant potatoes or potato buds until recently.  Wow!  They're fast, but I can't help feeling like I'm cheating the family out of real potatoes.  Then, I tried this recipe suggestion and I call it a "flavored" side dish now and it's super easy.

Finally, A ‘Lite’ Margarita Mix That Doesn’t Taste Terrible, Scales Review

I love margaritas, but I have a hard time with the fact that they are packed with sugar.  So much so that your average margarita is 350-500 calories.  Get a big enough one and it's the equivalent of eating a stack of candy bars.   Sometimes when I'm out shopping I'll try a new low calorie option to see how it goes.   Up until now, they've all tasted pretty terrible.  This time I tried the more expensive mix called "Scales."
