I think it’s only fair I warn you I may not be held responsible for the number of exclamation points I use because I. Am. So. EXCITED! I have a simple, fabulous recipe to share with you AND I have a super, fantastic giveaway, too.
Let’s start with the recipe because it’s almost Super Snack, er Bowl, Sunday. If you have leftover baked potatoes and pulled pork you’re already halfway there. It’s hard to imagine an easier appetizer unless it comes out of a box. The potatoes are halved and halved again, scooped to leave just a bit of potato behind in the skins, brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with salt, then baked ’til golden brown and crispy around the edges. Then they’re piled high with pulled pork, a squirt or spoonful of your favourite barbecue sauce and topped with melty Monterey Jack cheese. Back into the oven for eight minutes to heat the pork and melt the cheese and then HEY PRESTO! You have the hit of the party.
The platter and plate holding my potato skins above are from MacKenzie-Childs and they make me smile just to look at them.
Are you familiar with MacKenzie-Childs? If you aren’t, it’s time you were. If you are familiar with it, then you are probably getting pretty excited right now. MacKenzie-Childs sells artisan made ceramics, enamelware, housewares, furniture and accessories, but that doesn’t even begin to cover what they really give you. Everything they have is pure gorgeous whimsy. I like pretty things but looking through their offerings made audibly gasp. Just look!
Could it be any more gorgeous? Don’t think so! And oh my word. Look at the furniture. It’s like Alice in Wonderland in a very, VERY good way.
Are you ready to find out what the giveaway is? Hmmm? To celebrate their 30th Anniversary, MacKenzie-Childs is offering a $500 Gift Card (FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS!) to purchase whatever your heart desires on MacKenzie-Childs.com or in one of their stores. How much fun is that?
