--------  ------------  --------------------------------    
   6      medium        russet potatoes                     
   2      teaspoons     salt                                
     1/2  cup           milk                                
   4      tablespoons   butter or margarine -- softened     
   1      teaspoon      pepper                              
  12      small         mushrooms                           
   2                    red bell peppers                    
                        --cored, seeded and sliced          
                        assorted vegetables                 
                        --broccoli, zucchini, carrots, etc. 
                        additional melted butter            
	Peel off potato skins with a vegetable peeler.  Cut potatoes into quarters and put them 
in a large pot 3/4 full of cold water.  Add 1 teaspoon of salt to the water, cover the pot
and boil for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft.  Using a slotted spoon,
carefully remove potatoes from the hot water and place in a large mixing bowl.  Add the
milk, butter, pepper and the remaining teaspoon of salt. Beat with an electric mixer for 3
to 4 minutes, or until light and fluffy.  Spoon a mound of potatoes onto individual
plates. Allow to cool slightly, then using clean hands, sculpt a human head on each
plate. Using vegetables of your choice, add eyes, a nose and a mouth to each head.  Try
mushrooms for eyes, red pepper slices for lips, broccoli for hair or mustaches, etc.  Using
a blunt knife, slash a gash down the side of each heat.  Pour ketchup (blood) into each
gash and dribble on melted-butter pus for a deliciously disgusting side dish!
