Potatoes are a Dairy Product...  
...at least in my house. Dinner tonight was wonderful from the company - corvusjoyous , ego_id_non_feci , kumakun , and fencingkitty  - to the menu - salad, corn, meatloaf, and garlic cheddar mashed potatoes. However, mashed potatoes in my house are made with milk, sour cream, butter, and cheese. Mmmmmm.... nummy! Food coma time!

No roasted garlic? sniff

read again carefully - they were GARLIC cheddar mashed potatoes... garlic is just not a dairy product. :)

OK, I am more out of it than I thought....

I'm making Malted Milk cookies with chocolate chips...so my apartment smells pretty darn good right now too! Only dairy product in it is the Ovaltine though (and that's a fairly indirect dairy product, I think; I'd have to check the label, maybe there's no dairy in it at all).

Sounds like a lovely evening with cool friends and great food!

Look for a hechsher.

Nah, I checked, it's got whey powder in it. And I don't keep kosher, though I know what you're saying--that it would be certified pareve if it didn't have dairy or meat ingredients, right?

(I am Jewish, I just come from a non-kosher-keeping family. You want to see fun, you should see my folks negotiate meal ingredients with my newly-Orthodox sister and her fiance. "You can eat the creme caramel before the lamb pita sandwich but not after? How does that make any sense?" "Moooom, it doesn't have to make sense, it's what G-d said we should do!")

The cookies turned out pretty good by the way!

Yeah. I couldn't find the ingredients online, and I didn't have it handy, but I was able to discover online that it was kosher dairy, which answered the fundamental question. I'm used to thinking of mashed potatoes as dairy products. ;-)

(I don't keep strictly kosher myself, but I pay some degree of attention.)
