Added Mash and bangers. I apologize if they're not how your mama made em, but it's the best i could do

Alright, much to your guys' request, I've added a file with gravy. I've also edited the ingredients so it'll be a whole "potato" instead of a green lettuce with a brown spot in the middle.. I don't know if you guys noticed it, I don't know what I was thinking :p


Here are some creamy, *instant* Mashed Potatoes for you all :D

I can add gravy to it, if you guys want, which would probably be realistic, even though i eat mine without it

Cloned off chef salad, so it'll require however many cooking skills chef salad needs, and it appears in both lunch and dinner menus

Report any problems to me, though it works great in my game

Add a separate file with gravy. So we can have a choice with or without gravy. What do you think?

If it's not to much trouble I would say make two files for the potatoes with and without gravy - that way those that want both can download both or those that prefer with or without can download whichever one they want.

Great job on your foods :D

Looks awesome! Thanks ! :bow2:

And like 'bmanningb' suggested, is it ok if we have 2 choices? with and w/out gravy? I dont mind about having my sims fridge have more choices, moreover with the other foods you, fireflies and everyonelse made, an extra choice wouldnt be a problem :bump:

And if you have added a choice for having gravy, thanks in advance!

British girl thinks : "Where's the Bangers? You can't have Mash, let alone Mash & Gravy without the Bangers!!! *shocked and horrified*

Bangers = Sausages

good job.
#23 Old 25th Apr 2005 at 8:42 PM
weird that mashed poatatoes are eaten on their own or with just gravy, as a normal meal. i might if i'm hard up, but i'm used to them being served as a side thing with veg and meat/pies/sausages/veggie substitutes
but what the heck i like having the choices for my sims so downloading both
thanks beckyboda
