A note about serious food allergies

Have you ever sat down and devoured a perfect pot roast meal, properly slow cooked and meat-y, and said to yourself: “You know, I want another meal just like this one… but in ball form.” Have you? Well, what's stopping you? What's stopping you from combining ground beef with pot roast seasoning and breadcrumbs, for a meatball made in roasting heaven? Or making some mashed potatoes with sour cream and chives? Or adding in some peas and gravy, just to keep it pot roast kosher?  What's stopping you now? Only the time it takes to hit “order.”

    Reserve 1/4 cup potato cooking water. Drain potatoes in a colander, then return to pot. Add sour cream, butter, a pinch of chives (reserve remaining for garnish), and 1/4 tsp. salt. Mash until smooth. Add potato cooking water 1 Tbsp. at a time until desired consistency is reached.

    While potato simmers, mince chives.
