An HEARTy Meal

I recently got a bag of potatoes that had an unusal amount of heart shaped specimens. This one fit perfectly in my hand. "Heart in hand"- get it?

Hrrumph, ... anyway, I "baked" it in the microwave for a couple minutes, which not only cooked it but also loosened the skin for easy peeling.

Then added it to leftover corned beef and cabbage.
A little heavy for a summer meal, but oh, how I love corned beef and cabbage!
And what a unique presenation.
I think there is a market for heart shaped potatoes.
What do you think?

Great potato, great idea to include it with corned beef and cabbage! Yes, I'd be in the market for heart-shaped potatoes. Where can we get the seed potatoes for that?

I am always searching for heart shaped rocks in the river - when we go to dig up our potatoes - I will have to keep an eye out for a heart shaped one!! It did make for a nice presentation in your corned beef and cabbage!!

Wow - that is an awesome shaped potato. What perfect complement for a heart healthy meal...and food for the creative soul, too. Yummy! Ever get a shamrock shaped potato? That would be sheer "Luck of the Irish"!

This is great! Like something you'd see on Ebay! Love it!

I'd buy anything that's heart shaped! A little nest fell out of a tree in our garden yesterday and yes, it was heart-shaped (shaped like that because of the nest's positioning between 2 branches). How cute is that?!
