Is a post still a post if you forget to capture it on camera? Sure. That is why we have the internets.
Just about every Friday night Tex and I enjoy ourselves a baked potato dinner. It’s simple. It’s inexpensive. It’s the ultimate comfort food. Our toppings of choice? Butter, sour cream, chives (from our herb garden), bacon bits, and most recently…French’s Cheddar French Fried Onions. Yep, those little gems that you top your green bean casserole with are an amazing addition to most anything, including omelets.
I have recently come to terms with the fact that I crave habit, consistency, and schedules. Maybe this isn’t a surprise to most people, but it took a while for me to own it. I always thought that spontaneity was key to keeping life fresh and exciting. Maybe to some degree, but not on a daily basis. This girl needs to know what’s going on. It just makes things easier.
Believe it or not, that segue meant something. This weekly baked potato is way more than a baked potato. It’s a ritual. A way to unwind. Something to look forward to with my pal each week. It helps to keep things sane around here (or up here, in my head).
