I have a series called Feeding a Farmer. It’s food that can be prepared in a few minutes to make a meal for those last minute meal times. To find out how this all originated, check out this link. Keep in mind, none of these foods are glamorous…they are fast…and not bad tasting.
With everything being so hectic here I haven’t had a lot of time to cook. Meals have been a little catch as we can. Twice baked potatoes have really saved me a few times lately.
I baked about a dozen potatoes in the oven. After they had cooked and cooled, I scooped them out. I mashed the part I scooped out then added some sour cream, garlic and onion powders and a bit of shredded cheese. I put the filling back into the potatoes. There is no exact science to this part. Just put in whatever spices you personally like.
Then I decided how many we needed for supper that night and sprinkled another dose of cheese over them and popped them in the oven until the cheese was melted and warmed through.
The rest of the potatoes were put together in bundles of three halves, wrapped in tin foil and popped into the freezer. When I need something to stretch my time and my supper, I defrost a batch, sprinkle cheese over the top and pop them in the oven. I’ve even just popped them in the microwave only. They aren’t quite as good, but still tasty.
I can see now that the kids are gone and time is tight with the house and all, we’ll be eating more of these…and that’s another way I feed my farmer.
