As I write I am cheerfully eating a baked potato, well actually a microwaved one but you’ll get the cooking directions later on. For me, baked potatoes have become a one woman show. I get all my nutrients in eating this tuber.
To make my baked potato I wash it off once it’s out of the bag and pierce it with a fork. I then wrap it in a wet paper towel and center it in the microwave. On the highest zapping strength I microwave it for 7 or 8 minutes. Upon hearing the chirp of the microwave I remove the hot potato using a oven mitt and place it on a plate.
I then remove all the toppings from the refrigerator. These toppings include shredded cheese, low fat sour cream (2 tbsp.=40 calories), jalapeno pepper slices, corn relish when I can’t find mustard pickles, fresh chives, onions, and a sprinkle of Kosher salt. At times, I have been known to modify but usually return to the basics.
What are you having for dinner tonight?
