Yukon Golds & Heath Bars

It was a tasty day.  For lunch we had beef pot roast, fresh green beans, french bread, and my favoritist mashed potatoes.  The only way I make them is with Yukon Gold potatoes.  They have such a buttery flavor already that they only need a tablespoon or two of added butter, a little bit of skim milk, salt and pepper, and a couple ounces of reduced fat cream cheese mashed in, and they are the creamiest, buttery-ist, tastiest mashed potatoes of Wonderfulland.  

Later in the day I decided to try making Chocolate Toffee cookies.  We picked up some Heath bars last night just for that purpose.  They spend much of their time in the fridge chilling (which gave me time to fold the laundry, take a nap, etc), but the end result is a chocolatey, chewy, toffee-y cookie that is oh-so-tasty.  I figure you could mix in just about any type of chocolatey candy that you like - peanut butter, caramel, or mint chips, chopped butterfingers or snickers bars, and so on.
