Crushed New Potatoes with Ranch Dressing

With most meals, my boys want “a little love” which means some kind of potato or rice dish.  I always serve big salads & veggies which can bring some eye rolling – not that I care – but, being the Mama that I am, I do like to bring “the love” so, sometimes I have to get creative.  One of my guys is not a fan of mashed potatoes, WHAT?  Just wait…I had to honor his taste difference especially since he’d tried them for over 6 months (yes, I worked on it that long!)  Anyway, a few days ago I realized I had a couple of pounds of new potatoes, sour cream and fresh herbs on hand.  Putting on my thinking cap and knowing that My Man considers SOUR CREAM it’s own food group, I came up up with “Crushed New Potatoes” and would add some homemade Ranch dressing.  This dish was easy, took just a little time and was approved by all at the dinner table!
