Look good? WELL, IT WAS!
It took dang long enough. You can cook potatoes in the microwave, you know. Just remember to pierce the skin in several places. Because you know in the movie, Gremlins, when the gremlin got microwaved, remember what it did? Because potatoes do that, if you don’t pierce the skin enough.
Yes, I know from personal experience. With potatoes, I mean, not with gremlins.
ANYWAY, I prefer to bake my potatoes in the oven, because I like that crispy, crackly skin it gives them.
While they were baking, I chopped up some onions and sliced some mushrooms, and I cooked them verrrrrry slowwwwwlllly in margarine at a very low heat. It makes the onions sweet and mild, and it concentrates the flavor of the mushrooms without desiccating them. Then I roont it by dumping in some canned peas. Never claimed to be Martha Stewart, so don’t say I did.
Also yesterday, I sent a post to Dianne Gardner of the Ian’s Realm Saga and she put it on her blog. It’s a musing on hope and writing [link defunct], and includes a pitcher I tuk and a pome I writ.
