Pike's Peak

Ok, so you're not in the mood at 5:00 AM to plan how you'll have your potatoes today. That's alright, I'll do it for you.

Remember the Mt Adams? It's the one with potatoes, rutabegas, turnips and cauliflower mashed together. I'm going to use it and add cheese. The original Clingman's Dome (highest point in Tennessee) is mashed potatoes with melted cheese on top, but adding cheese to the Mt Adams gives us the all new Pike's Peak!

Start with your potatoes. They may be fresh, hot ready-to-go or, this is a good one to use leftover spuds that have been in the fridge. Use a spoon or a spatula to flatten out the mashed potatoes (Mt Adams) on the plate. If the potatoes are cold, warm them on the (microwave safe) plate in the oven on 325 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Then, add your favorite cheese(s) to the top and place under the broiler for 2 minutes or until cheese is browned and beautiful.

UUUMMMM Baaaaby! Pike's Peak is good for any meal or even, every meal! Oooh La La!

Did you know you can drive to the top of Pike's Peak just west of Colorado Springs but, you can also take the long scenic way by accessing a trail in the back country and spend all day going to the top from the back side. Beautiful streams, awesome paths through the forest, unbelievably serene alpine meadows and views to eternity. Consult with sites like for more information.

Laugh Well. Live Well. Love Well. Make Potatoes Well.

It's gonna be a great day!
