You could even make potato skins as an appetizer and then use the insides that you scooped out for the baked chicken part.
Gone. Like yesterday is gone.

Make a spicy soup by dicing carrots, potatoes and onion. Saute in 2 tbsp olive oil and a little butter. Add 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth, 2 tsp fresh pepper, 1tsp cayenne or red chili flakes. Simmer until veggies are soft. Puree in blender. Or you could do a curry soup instead with 2-3tsp curry powder as the spice.

How about a Carrot Cake and a Chocolate Potato Cake? Instead of potato and leek soup, make a potato and onion soup. Onion Bahjees would make a good entree to an Indian curry. Caramelised red onion jam or the same but with cranberries added. Carrots can be used in coleslaw, potatoes in potato and egg salad, and red onions in a Greek salad. Good to use in a tempura batter as well.
Too many restaurants, not enough time...

A great savoury stew comes to mind as well--throw in some peas and you can make a wonderful chicken, pork, and or beef pie as well. In the meantime store you great buys in a cool dark place (not damp) and they'll last a good while as more DC recipes come in

The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.
