My Mama's Potato Pancakes

As a child, I knew that whenever we had mashed potatoes for supper, we would have potato pancakes the next day - yum to both! This is how my late mother made them - simple in ingredients and execution, but so delicious! Mom always used leftover mashed potatoes, - I always keep a couple of cooked whole potatoes in the refrigerator, so I will sometimes season and mash those up to use. Crisp and lightly browned on the outside, creamy on the inside!
I miss you mom, and - as you said to me every night when you tucked me in "I love you higher than the sky"!
