Jane's Krazy Mixed-Up Salt Baked Potato

Who likes a real oven-baked potato?  I do every once in a while that's for sure.  You just can't beat the potato baked in the oven.  We may bake many in the microwave but they aren't the same. 

I love a potato no matter how you cook it and have been known as someone who could live like a cow with a salt lick! I'm laughing but it's true!

Combining the two together is just an easy way to get what I like.  This without a doubt will be the quickest and easiest recipe post you'll ever see on here.

I'l Just Grow My Own Lettuce You Can Too!

Who loves salad? 

I certainly do!  My daddy always said to mama, "Dot, don't give me any more of that rabbit food! I've had enough!" He would eat it sometimes but she couldn't put it before him all the time.  He was a meat and potatoes man! (wonder why my girls call me Ron Swanson, guess it is inherited, but I love all meats and veggies!)

It has become increasingly dangerous to eat salad lately, at home or in a restaurant.  There have been so many warnings and recalls on Romaine. Many people have gotten sick, some have died. 

This past November a recall on some grown in Salinas California because of  E. coli. January 15th the CDC stated that it appears to be over. That is still enough to steer me away from it for a while.   

We had some in the house over November and December that I'd purchased from Sam's Club. We threw it away.

Why is this happening to the Romaine? Contaminated irrigation water, cattle feedlots, manure. 

Unsanitary growing conditions would be my guess.  Personally, as I'm known for keeping CAFOs away from our area that could be a reason for sure. Either way, it's a sad thing to worry constantly about food sources.

Working with strawberries over the years and watching knowing the irrigation sources have to be as clean as possible.  One main concern is how clean the workers' hands etc, are when harvesting produce.  I think many things could factor into it.  

I don't wish my family nor I to be a statistic with kidney disease and many other health issues that could come from eating a salad!

It's enough to make you grow your own!

I Need Hot Fudge Sauce and I'm Not Going To Town To Get It!

It is Sunday afternoon and I want a hot fudge sundae!  We live thirty minutes away from almost anywhere and I am too blame lazy to go shopping.

Then I remembered I used to make hot fudge sauce but couldn't for the life of me remember how.

I found a recipe and it is pretty good!
