A perfect oven baked potato is just what you need when you are torn between enjoying time with family and feeding them all! This holiday season, I did bake some potatoes but no, I did not make mashed potatoes. I used the meaty soft potato scoops for one recipe and the crispy skins for another.
And, the whole thing was such a breeze requiring very little attention from my end. Making lots of food but not spending too much time in the kitchen? Now, that’s what I call a win-win situation! 🙂
All of us have heard of the saying, “Too much of a good thing” but how many of you have actually had too much of it? Me, Me, Me! I have had just too much of vacation time. How badly do I want to get back my comfy mundane routine (Although, my routine is anything but mundane, I admit), I can’t even describe. There’s something about the soothing lull of routine which makes one want to get back to it, wouldn’t you agree?
If you read my previous post on Baingan Bharta (Smoked & Mashed eggplant), you might be aware about how I was staggering back to reality after an almost-three month long vacation. And then poof!, we decided to take another vacation, this time with Nachiket and his parents (who are visiting us on their vacation) to visit more family for a fortnight! And then, poof again!
All of us decided to take a mini vacation together to another place altogether! Oh My! My head is still reeling with fun. I am heading back home tomorrow with a bag of mixed emotions but I can’t wait to get home! 🙂
Meanwhile, all of us are thoroughly enjoying these warm perfect oven baked potatoes and their golden crisp potato skins now stuffed with oodles of deliciousness (Recipe coming soon, here’s a sneak peak).
