My local grocer had russet potatoes on sale for an amazing price.  I bought 10 pounds!  I can’t eat much of them because of my sensitivity to nightshades, but the kids really like the stuffed baked potato skins we had on night one.  I served them with Teriyaki Ranch Chicken Thighs and Roasted Baby Bellas.

I baked the potatoes a day ahead, so I could work with them cool.   I made 18 potatoes!  I washed them thoroughly, poked them with a fork and baked at 350 F for an hour.

The next day, I scooped out the skins, leaving a little potato and refrigerated the skins again for a while.  I put the scooped out potatoes in a tupperware for mashed potatoes another day.

Brush skins with oil, season with a little seasoned salt and pepper blend, or other seasonings you like, and then sprinkle with cheese (I used vegan cheese) and cooked bacon pieces.

Meanwhile, I put the chicken in a baking dish, and the baby bellas in another.  The chicken was marinaded and cooked in Giorgio Blendabella Coconut Thai Sauce that was amazing!  I added in some Marsala wine to make it liquidy enough to be a marinade.

They were simply tossed with oil (I used sunflower) and seasoned salt and pepper blend.  These can be seasoned according to taste.

It all baked together at 350F for about 40 minutes (chicken with internal temperature of 165F.  I kept checking the food the last 15 minutes or so, and cut the chicken up so it would crisp up.

Then tonight, I made mashed potatoes by ricing the potatoes and adding in melted butter, non-dairy milk, and seasonings.  I just heated them on the stove top while tonight’s Honey Mustard Jalapeno Chicken cooked in the oven.

The Honey Mustard Jalapeno Marinade/Cooking Sauce was made from stuff I had a little of each of in the fridge.  Raspberry Honey Mustard mixed with Jalapeno Pineapple Jam.  No kidding.  Really good.

I served a salad that was a kit from Target’s new line.  Maple, Bourbon, Bacon salad.

Yummm.  I know it sounds like a lot of different flavors, but they all complemented each other.
