ANYONE GOT A POTATO MASHER?




 Tonight's menu was Taco's.  Whenever I make Taco's I want good old re fried beans from scratch.  So the beans cooked in the crock pot all day, and when I was ready to mash them....a potato masher was NOT be be found in the cabin!  After searching every drawer and cabinet, this was the only item that looked like it might work.



With a little "elbow grease" and several minutes, I was able to mash those pinto beans enough to look and taste right for the tacos.

I'm not quite sure what this "tool" is, but resembles a wooden pedestal my mom had in a colander used to make jelly???

Wish I had taken a picture of the tacos....they were yummy, but all gone before I thought of the camera.

  6. You are quite inventive. I'll bet the tacos were so yummy, especially with home made beans. Much better than my canned variety. (:0)

  8. On seeing this, my husband immediately reminded me that the wooden "bat" is probably a meat stomper to push the meat into the blades of a meat grinder. Here's a link to one for sale (as of now anyway) on eBay.

    I see they make them out of something besides wood now.
