I’ve been reading a blog that is inspiring me to eat a little more healthy. I’m looking for ways to add fruits and veggies to our diet.
Today, I had a banana for breakfast and we had a baked potato bar for dinner.
Before I left the house for errands this afternoon, I put five huge baking potatoes in the oven. They baked for over 2 hours, so they were nice and mushy.
When I got home, I browned some 90 percent lean hamburger meat and mixed in a little taco seasoning.
I gathered up some other potato toppings. I have a passion for feta cheese. I refuse to be without it.
First step. Butter the spud. Then add salt and pepper.
Add some seasoned hamburger.
Then I added some light sour cream.
Add chopped romaine hearts and diced tomatoes.
And finally some glorious feta.
Below is my hubby’s spud. He buried his tomatoes under the hamburger and cheese. He’s a little weird like that. And he didn’t eat any feta.
Also, I did an estimate of the cost of this meal. The cost of each potato with toppings was a little less than 2 dollars. So we ate a healthy, home-cooked meal for less that 10 dollars for my family of 5.
Tip. A mushy spud is better that a crunchy spud. Bake it on a low temp for at least a couple hours.
