Not far from the Ocean, not far from the redwood forests and part of the awesome mountain glory of N. California. Mt. Shasta is usually a two day climb that gives folks a chance to camp just below her summit at a spot called Lake Helen. This alpine setting will warm the soul and ans some tomatoe soup in a hollowed out mountain of mashed potatoes will warm the tummy.
Since Shasta is a volcano, let's spoon out the middle of a heap of mashed potatoes on our plate and put our favorite tomatoe soup in it. This is an awesome lunch and really should be on every restaurant menu. Try using these two Potato Mountain Spice Blends in this one: Herbal Wink and Veggie Pepper Parade.
Potato Mountain has a great tomatoe soup recipe as well but, we'll save it for another day. Be sure to follow Barney- The Potato Dog Thlog (thought Blog) at http://www.potatomountain.com/
It's gonna be a great day!
