Pesto Walnut Mashed Potatoes

March 18, 2013





  1. You all have been on my mind all weekend. Praying for you!

  2. Oh Meagan, I’m so sorry to hear this. I’ll definitely be praying for you and your family during this difficult season. These mashed potatoes look delicious and I’m sure your mom loves knowing you shared them. 🙂

  3. Your mom, you and the rest of your family are in my prayers. No matter the outcome, God is there with y’all.

  4. So sorry to hear about your mom. Definitely sending prayers your way!

    I’m normally more of a lurker than commenter (the creepier the better, right? :-P), but I just wanted to say that I’m so sorry to hear about your mom. We lost my grandma to the same thing 2 1/2 years ago so I have some idea of what you’re going through. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

    And on a lighter note – I’m not typically a big pesto fan, but these look delectable enough I just might have to try it.

      Haha thanks Jenn! You can lurk around my site anytime. She is currently at MD Anderson and we are constantly running into terminal cancer patients. It really breaks my heart every time I hear a touching story.

  6. I am so sorry to hear about your mom. Will be keeping her and your family in my thoughts and sending positive vibes your way.

    Your potatoes look fabulous 😉

  7. These potatoes look delicious and I am, again, so so sorry about your mom <3

  8. Meagan, that certainly qualifies as a bad week for you and your family. I am so sorry that she will have to go through more medical treatments. I wish there was something I could do. Cooking is definitely something we food bloggers lean on, isn’t it.

      Thanks so much Sarah! I’m definitely making a lot of trips to Houston to spend as much time as I can with her. Luckily I have a great boss and coworkers who understand my situation.

  9. When a great way to add flavor to one of my favorite side dishes!

  10. I know that terrible feeling all too well. My dad died, so suddenly, when I was 19 (6ish years ago) and the pit in your stomach, the way your heart flutters in your throat, the way everything seems dreamlike and impossible… I remember that. My heart goes out to you, so so much. You get the chance to say goodbye, cherish it. I don’t know if it makes the loss easier or harder (but really, how could any of it be easy?) but use it how you will. I couldn’t say goodbye. My heart really, truly goes out to you. Sending you so much positive energy and so many hugs.

  11. I’m sorry about your mom. My husband’s father had much the same thing. It’s a trying time for families. I just found your lovely blog through another blogger. I’ll be back to visit again.
