Oh, what a gorgeous Sunday. Special thanks to DB from Crazy Foodie Stunts for being such a great host.
We were at Oktoberfest yesterday and had a ball and today we’re working away at the house and hoping to have a few friends over. This totally fits into today’s #SundaySupper theme-unprocessed food.
What’s unprocessed? Well, there’s a tonne of different definitions so let’s agree upon no chemical additives and having the food be as close to it’s natural state as possible.
Okey dokey. I’m also going to throw in there that you have a better chance to have unprocessed food if it is local.
I’ve got a terrific way to enjoy unprocessed foods and feed a crowd for very little.
A Jacket Potato party!
This was Uni food for me when I lived in England. Our school caf offered jacket potatoes with LOTS of toppings for 2 pounds. Perfect for a student budget.
All you have to do is bake up some nice, big potatoes and set out bowls of all the things that your family already loves. Each person gets to make their own up therefore every person gets to eat exactly what they want. Almost no clean-up and the leftovers are a huge treat the next day.
For our recent potato party I offered; chopped peppers, chevre…
shredded cheese, toasted pieces of bacon, chili sauce, green onions, baked beans (my Gran’s bean recipe is right at the end of this post)…
cottage cheese, sauteed onions and thinly sliced pork chops that are bbq’d and dosed with sauce.
See? So cute and so yummy.
Everything offered is homemade and comes from within 5 miles of our house. Even the cheese is from happy, local cows and goats. The bacon and the pork from our favourite farmers-Dave and Diane from Ashton Glen.

- 1 tsp baking soda
- ⅓ cup maple syrup
