Do-ahead mashed potatoes to save time and sanity

This Oct. 21, 2013 photo shows make-ahead light mashed potatoes in Concord, N.H. The potatoes are mashed and cooked without any seasonings or dairy the day before, and then stored in the refrigerator. They are nuked and the dairy added at the last minute, when they are ready to serve. (AP Photo/Matthew Mead)
