|Fig 1. Not an opiate.|
Anyway, in the course of this exciting culinary exercise, I discovered a crucial scientific distinction: that between the dish of stuffed potatoes and the dish of potatoes, stuffed.
Here's what I did: I took the whopper potato, and sliced it in half. I dug out the centre with a knife and spoon. I took care to leave a narrow wall of .... well, potato between the edge of the potato and the... er, hole in the potato. I chucked all the dug-out potato in a pot to make mash, and I put the two potato husks into another pot to boil them up and make them edible.
While all that was going on I prepared the filling of
When everything else was prepared, I looked into the pot of potato husks and saw that one husk was ready for the stuffing. The other, well, it was well and truly stuffed already.
And that, dear reader, is the difference between stuffed potatoes, and potatoes, stuffed.
In conclusion, don't bother with the potatoes. Try opiates instead.
UPDATE! - Guess which one of these is a potato! (Photo taken by the Baron).
