Not Just A Spud

There’s nothing quite as homey, or as easy, as a baked potato. The other day, we just HAPPENED to have all the fixings on hand… potatoes, monterey jack and extra sharp cheese, fresh green onions, and sour cream. After about an hour in the oven, we split them in half, tossed on the grated cheese (which melts almost instantly in the steam) and the chopped green onions, and then the sour cream, either on top or on the side. I guess it’s also just really satisfying when you already have the ingredients on hand and the meal just BEGS to be created – no need to run out to the store for anything, or plan for it another day when you’ve already got the taste for it in your mind. Excluding the hour in the oven, that’s pretty immediate gratification – LOL.
