I Eat Pertaters On Snow Days

That's my answer to Joyce Laverne's question yesterday. On days like this:
you can't go wrong with a baked potato. Take about ten Russet potatoes. Heat the oven to 450 F. Clean the potatoes. Rub them with a little oil or butter, if you really want to, but it isn't necessary. Poke holes in the potatoes, so they won't explode. Yes, potatoes WILL explode, if they don't have holes in. Trust me. I know. Bake them babies for an hour, maybe 70 minutes.

Take them out. Put one on a plate. Make a cut one way and the other way, in the shape of a cross. Then put one hand on each end of the spud and push. It fluffs!

Then you put all the good (bad) stuff on it: butter, cheese, bacon, chives, more cheese, salt, pepper....

Want one. Now!
