Why is there so much stuff??? The crazy packing marathon continues, and the same question keeps coming up…..repeatedly….why is there so much stuff? Therefore it is appropriate to share Stuffed Baked Potatoes with you. Get it? Stuff/Stuffed….I know, I crack myself up sometimes…..

I would have placed these delicious and adorably cute potato packages on a pretty platter…..but they have already been packed!!!

About 4:00 pm I realized that we needed something for dinner. Something that does not contain gluten/soy/corn/etc., so these Stuffed Baked Potatoes are perfect. {We’ll just pretend that Michelle can eat dairy, okay 😉 }

Garnish with green onions or parsley if desired and serve.

My son stopped by this afternoon to help us pack, then his girlfriend joined us after work…..and they brought back even more packing paper!! So far we have gone through 50 boxes, 3 rolls of packing tape, and 4 packages of packing paper……and we have only packed my food props!!

We did stop for a delicious dinner, drank some wine so we don’t have to pack it, and joked about how much stuff is still left to pack. All in all, it was an awesome day! 🙂

  1. Oh my word YUM. Ok, packing is the worst EVER and we decided on our last move to get rid of alllll (ok most of) the STUFF!! But we still have more. How does that happen?? These potatoes look ahhhmazing (are you kidding – blurry picture?? Stoppit) and we may just give it ALL away and move to Europe. haha Pinned!

  2. My heart goes out to you as you do the packing. There always seems to be more than you ever remembering acquiring, right? Great recipe – easy and versatile. Good luck!

  3. How fabulous are these guys! Love the all in one meal and we are featuring these lovely “STUFFED BAKE POTATOES” at Munching Mondays this week!!! Thanks for sharing and see you soon 🙂 xo Nic

  4. Packing is the worst. At least it sounds like you are making the best of it. Good thing you don’t have to pack that bottle of wine now! I love dishes that are complete meals by themselves. These look delicious.
