Instructions for Mashed Potatoes:

( Tip: We like the red potato skins on the potatoes and so do most of our kids, so I don't usually peel the potatoes )

Instructions for Beef Gravy:

Use drippings from the roast to mix together with 

flour or corn starch and milk for beef gravy.

( Looks like we had ham that day, it must have been Easter Sunday.  I do love ham gravy, but ham on Sundays is unusual for us. )
