I hope y'all are having a wonderful weekend, spending time with those that are dearest to your heart and activities that feed your soul! I am conflicted about my weekend. On the one hand I've finished all my errands (with the exception of picking up a few groceries), but on the other hand I've only slept about 6 hours in the last three days :( I am at the point where I am tired and awake at the same time, lol oh the trials and tribulations that are my life.
So since I've got the jitters I thought I would write up a quick blog and see if I can relax, maybe even to the point of sleep lol. This is yet another post that was made during my last visit to Texas but alas it didn't get written, that is until today! I promise this will be a delicious recipe and I encourage everyone to try it, it has definitely become a staple in my recipe box! So as you guys know every time I am in Texas we have steak at least once, and I mean EVERY time. Don't get me wrong I'm not complaining, and my next favorite part of that meal is whatever type of potatoes are on the side (yes I love me some carbs lol). For a little while now I've been making that dish, we've hard traditional mashed and country mashed (skins left on). I don't know too many people who dislike baked potatoes, I whole heartily agree if they're not cooked very well they aren't the best, but I love them so much I take great care while baking. This time I decided to do something that I've wanted to try but just never have. The only time I've actually had them this way is in a restaurant. So are you sitting there thinking "just tell us already!!", lol today's post is about the super yummy twice baked potatoes Canuckette style! Let's not dilly dally any longer, let's get to the meat and potatoes of the post (lol yea I went there). I also just want to add, in case Dad, now known as "the Captain" reads this particular post, I'm sorry to tell you but you like garlic lol because you loved these potatoes :)
