Eggnog Mashed Potatoes

The making of a new holiday classic. The guests in St. Anthony’s Dining Room inspire us daily. Faced with struggles, they display resiliency and versatility. In that same spirit, we share this recipe — and the story behind it. Our chefs were preparing mashed potatoes one day, when they ran out of milk. Searching the pantry for a suitable substitute, they were delighted to discover gallons of donated eggnog that they immediately put to good use. The joy of the holidays comes from being together. Around your dining room table and ours, people sit side-by-side to share warm, comforting dishes like this one — lifting the spirits of all. Eggnog Mashed Potatoes Ingredients 10 large potatoes, peeled and roughly chopped 1 lb unsalted butter 1 pint heavy cream 1 cup eggnog Salt and black pepper to taste Fresh herbs as garnish (optional) Directions Place the potatoes in a large pot, and cover with cold water. Add a teaspoon or two of salt. Bring to a boil, skimming off any impurities, and cook the potatoes slightly past al dente. Drain the water and allow the potatoes to finish cooking while they release steam (this dries out the potatoes so they’re not too wet to absorb the dairy). While the potatoes are cooking, heat the butter, cream, and eggnog together over medium-low heat until the butter is fully melted. Once the potatoes have stopped releasing steam, add the butter mixture and mash thoroughly into the potatoes. Season to taste with black pepper and salt, and garnish with fresh herbs if desired. Serve hot. Serves... read more

2018 Fleet Week: U.S. Service Members Volunteer

San Francisco Fleet Week in October celebrated the Bay Area naval tradition and honored the women and men serving in our armed forces. St. Anthony’s was honored to host service members for a special day of Fleet Week volunteering again this year, continuing an annual tradition. Fleet Week’s 2018 day of service began with our Justice Education orientation, which highlights the history and characteristics of San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood as well as the homeless, low-income, and vulnerable populations that St. Anthony’s programs serve. After the presentation concluded, the Fleet Week volunteers made their way to our Dining Room and Free Clothing Program to begin their volunteering shifts. As service began, the volunteers (members of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps) began briskly prepping meals, delivering trays, and bussing tables. Throughout the volunteer shift, the service members also took the time to connect with our guests and get to know the members of our community. Smiles were shared and stories were swapped. Veterans on our staff forged friendships with the volunteers and reminisced about his days in the service. Service members also connected with the veterans who have fallen on hard times and who eat in our Dining Room. Images courtesy of Kathryn... read more
