Mashed Red Potatos with Garlic & Parsley

This is a side (( but seriously, the way my mom and sister gobble it up, you'd think it was an entree )) dish that I dumb-ed down from a more expensive recipe. We actually (( when had some cash )) tired the more expensive version and my version won through out my family.

I also ALWAYS make a double batch for two reasons: one - my sister eats it at night before bed and two - these make great potato fritters. I'll add the recipe for the fritters, so think of this as a two in one recipe.
