A couple of weeks ago, I ordered potato skins from Boston Pizza. That is, I attempted to order potato skins from Boston Pizza.
"Sorry, we only serve the Southwest Skins now," said the BP representative.
"All right," I answered reluctantly.
The Southwest Skins arrived some time later - potato skins laden not with delicious cheese, chives and bacon bits, but with BBQ sauce, chicken and some kind of white stuff. I ate them with little relish, wondering why Boston Pizza would choose to eliminate such a staple appetizer in favour of this weird-tasting mess. But I consoled myself with the thought that many restaurants carry potato skins, and I could simply order them from somewhere else.
Tonight, I felt like potato skins. I thought I'd try Tony Roma's - they have excellent skins.
Or they used to. They're no longer on the menu.
All right, maybe Red Robin...
I was getting desperate. Denny's?
Swiss Chalet? No. Montana's? No. Outback Steakhouse? No.
What happened? Have potato skins suddenly fallen off the map as an appetizer of choice? Am I going to be forced to (choke) MAKE MY OWN POTATO SKINS????
If anyone knows where I can acquire some potato skins in Edmonton, preferably on the west end, please leave a comment below. I really need a fix.
