Here's a mix of ingredients that worked really well together at dinner
yesterday.  I didn't measure things.  Sorry for that but I assume you
can work up something similar by adding ingredients to taste:

1/2 dozen red potatoes (It's what I had in the kitchen)
peel them, slice them and boil them for 25 minutes or so with a couple
of garlic cloves in the mix

Add:
a small bunch of thinly sliced green onions
a splash of buttermilk (a little less than you're used to adding when
you add milk to the mashed potatoes-the buttermilk taste shouldn't
overpower things.)
A 1/4 cup or so of blue cheese (we used Maytag since we had it) - not
too much, about what you might sprinkle on a similarly sized salad for
seasoning.
2 tbsp. of margarine or thereabouts
mash it normally and serve.

We served this with sauteed chicken marinated in an italian style
bottled grilling marinade with mushrooms and a salad of sliced avocado
drizzled with truffle oil and white wine vinegar and a little of the
same sliced green onions we put in the potatoes.  The wine was
Frascati - a dry white Italian wine from near Rome.  The whole meal
took 40 minutes from start to finish.  The mix of goodies played well
together.  Great meal.  Good cooking.

That sounds delicious, thank you. Of course, this is coming from a hopeless
blue cheese addict................ Thanks

Recipe does sound delicious.  Blue cheese doesn't last long enough
to get into a recipe here.  I'm too busy hacking chunks of it off
and gobbling it down.
