Clouds at Sunset

 Clouds at Sunset
We gave a weather-themed birthday party for my brother, who constantly keeps an eye on conditions. It was fun to come up with appropriate names for some of his favorite recipes. Fluffy garlic mashed potatoes and carrots became Clouds at Sunset. They're topped with a gravy of ground beef and peas we called Pea Soup Fog for the occasion. -Ndara Pike, Tempe, Arizona
