Jilly’s Take: Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. In other words, after one bad experience if I get “bitten”, I hope to learn my lesson or at least be shy about going there again. Proceed with caution!

Linda writes and I (Polly Wanna Cracker) repeat Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “mash.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!To join in, here are the rules and ping back.
They did the mash
They did the monster mash
The monster mash
It was a graveyard smash
What the what are you going on about? Sounds like a nervous tic. But no, it is music sweet music, there is music everywhere. Singing swaying records playing and dancing in the street!!
Wonder how much of those lyrics you got right and what you misremembered. And what’s the word for that again? Mondegreen!
Yep you remember useless trivia but when the time comes to do something, if you dont act right away you forget. Almost immediately. Doh!
I love mashed potatoes. Yummy for breakfast. Since I have yet to eat breakfast, I’m hangry. Not snickers hangry. More hung-silly. Look at me … MSU.
Well you can turn leftover mashed potatoes into potato pancakes. That is breakfastsy. And don’t get me started on mashed cauliflower as a substitute for mashed papas. More yum! Papas con huevos on maize for breakfast. Just what the doctor ordered! Oh and I LOVE cauliflower but something about the texture when it is mashed up is off putting to me. Olive oil, seasoning, and baked. That’s how to prepare cauliflower.
So much for the lyrical route. I’ve hopped over to the culinary destination considering where this prompt word has lead me. We watch a boatload of cooking shows on TV. Right now TOC = Guy’s Tournament of Champions is our favorite. We’re Team Darnell!! SuperChef! For the win!!! We hope.
And with that the she that is me aka Jilly is outta steam from this starchy stream. You gotta boil em before ya can mash em. Better get going before I get started again.
