What Shall We Make Today

Today we’re making Savory Potato Skins!


4 large baking potatoes (about 12 ounces each)

3 tablespoons butter, melted

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon paprika

Optional: Sour cream and chives


Preheat oven to 375°. Scrub potatoes; pierce several times with a fork. Place on a greased baking sheet; bake until tender, 1-1-1/4 hours. Cool slightly.

Cut each potato lengthwise in half. Scoop out pulp, leaving 1/4-in.-thick shells (save pulp for another use).

Cut each half shell lengthwise into quarters; return to baking sheet. Brush insides with butter. Mix seasonings; sprinkle over butter.

Broil 4-5 inches from heat until golden brown, 5-8 minutes. If desired, mix sour cream and chives and serve with potato skins.

        1. I’ll admit – it’s been a rough day/night. At first, she said I’d have to come back to actually remove them. I went off, of course, then had to apologize since she was the one who agreed to make an exception for me. She did understand and said as long as my ride would wait, they would go ahead and take them out at 1 pm. So I found Leon (the driver) and we arranged where to meet when I was done. He and the other guy (sorry, can’t remember his name) went to the cafeteria and had lunch in the meantime.

          After getting me all numbed up (she was really good – I barely felt it!), she joked that they should just put me in front of a mirror and let me pull them myself! Ha-ha! No, thank you! She had them all out w/in 45 minutes. I felt some pain on the molar on the bottom that was broken off – she had to take it out in pieces. Since 8 of the teeth were on top, she REALLY numbed it but with just the 2 on the bottom left, she only did one shot.

          Another vet rode with us to arrange to get his prosthetic leg repaired – black guy from NJ originally, then CA, then NE – long story of how he came to be in Norfolk – he was born 5 months after I was. On the trip back, all I wanted was for him to just shut his mouth for 2 SECONDS!!! But, no….he yammered on and on and on all the way there and all the way back. It’s frustrating to be the 3rd person present and completely unable to communicate at all, even the few times I did want to say something. But they were both really nice guys.

          When I got home and grabbed my mail, there was a letter from the VA Dr. that said he looked over the scans and didn’t think my sinuses were causing this, there were a couple of pockets of infection in some teeth. So, it may just work out that I was wrong all this time – I would be happy to offer apologies if it works out that way!

          Then last night, once the numbness wore off, my sinuses/nose just exploded. It’s still running this morning but not quite as bad and I’m not feeling it in my ears like I was last night. So, we’ll see what happens now,

          Both the driver and the other vet support the jab. Leon’s daughter is a nurse and “…she wouldn’t tell me to do it if it wasn’t good for me.” SMH – he was much more aware than the other vet. But, after growing up in NJ and living in LA for almost 25 years, I expect he wouldn’t be. They both watch MSM.

          1. Morning!
            perhaps this is your body’s way to drain the infection out of your body. that could be a good thing–on the way to healing everything.
            Are you in a lot of pain?

  2. Jordan, Comer, Steil demand Bragg answers for prosecutorial misconduct

    Jordan, Comer, Steil Demand Communications, Documents, and Testimony from Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg
    March 20, 2023
    Press Release

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH), House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY), and House Administration Committee Chairman Bryan Steil (R-WI) sent a letter to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg demanding communications, documents, and testimony relating to Bragg’s unprecedented abuse of prosecutorial authority and the potential indictment of former President Donald Trump.

    Excerpts of the letter to Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg:

    “You are reportedly about to engage in an unprecedented abuse of prosecutorial authority: the indictment of a former President of the United States and current declared candidate for that office. This indictment comes after years of your office searching for a basis—any basis—on which to bring charges, ultimately settling on a novel legal theory untested anywhere in the country and one that federal authorities declined to pursue. If these reports are accurate, your actions will erode confidence in the evenhanded application of justice and unalterably interfere in the course of the 2024 presidential election. In light of the serious consequences of your actions, we expect that you will testify about what plainly appears to be a politically motivated prosecutorial decision.

    “The New York County District Attorney’s Office has been investigating President Trump since at least 2018, looking for some legal theory on which to bring charges. The facts surrounding the impending indictment have ‘been known for years.’ Michael Cohen, President Trump’s disgraced former lawyer, pleaded guilty over four years ago to charges based on the same facts at issue in the impending indictment. By July 2019, however, federal prosecutors determined that no additional people would be charged alongside Cohen. Now, in the words of one legal scholar, you are attempting to ‘shoehorn’ the same case with identical facts into a new prosecution, resurrecting a so-called ‘zombie’ case against President Trump. Even the Washington Post quoted ‘legal experts’ as calling your actions ‘unusual’ because ‘prosecutors have repeatedly examined the long-established details but decided not to pursue charges.’

    “In addition to the novel and untested legal theory, your star witness for this prosecution has a serious credibility problem—a problem that you have reportedly recognized. This case relies heavily on the testimony of Michael Cohen, a convicted perjurer with a demonstrable prejudice against President Trump. Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress in 2018. In 2019, when he testified before Democrats on the House Oversight Committee to aid their fruitless investigation into President Trump, Cohen lied again—six times. Cohen has been vocal about his deeply personal animus toward President Trump. Under these circumstances, there is no scenario in which Cohen could fairly be considered an unbiased and credible witness.

    “Your decision to pursue such a politically motivated prosecution—while adopting progressive criminal justice policies that allow career ‘criminals [to] run[ ] the streets’ of Manhattan —requires congressional scrutiny about how public safety funds appropriated by Congress are implemented by local law-enforcement agencies. In addition, your apparent decision to pursue criminal charges where federal authorities declined to do so requires oversight to inform potential legislative reforms about the delineation of prosecutorial authority between federal and local officials. Finally, because the circumstances of this matter stem, in part, from Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation, Congress may consider legislative reforms to the authorities of special counsels and their relationships with other prosecuting entities. Accordingly, to advance our oversight, please produce the following documents and information for the period January 1, 2017, to the present:

    1. All documents and communications between or among the New York County District Attorney’s Office and the U.S. Department of Justice, its component entities, or other federal law enforcement agencies referring or relating to your office’s investigation of President Donald Trump;

    2. All documents and communications sent or received by former employees Carey Dunne and Mark Pomerantz referring or relating to President Donald Trump; and

    3. All documents and communications referring or relating to the New York County District Attorney Office’s receipt and use of federal funds.”
