J is for Jacket Potato
I am a fan of a jacket potato, in fact when I decided to share my photograph for my ABC contribution I had to make one - in this case tuna, extra light mayonnaise, spring onion and cucumber. Jacket potatoes are a great way to use up food - I have many favourites but an indulgence would always be just butter!
Whilst I often microwave the potatoes nothing tastes anything like the crispy skin of an oven cooked one.
What are your favourite fillings?
We have had some lovely weather of late and have had a couple of expeditions on the motorbike, as well as walks on the beach and catching up on garden jobs. The henhouse has had a spring clean - today I noticed Bev lurking around the door - she is laying again, only moments after I captured this photo a blue egg appeared. Eva sits on the shelf to lay hers, whilst Mabel and Olwyn choose the corner of the shed, so we are up to full production now.
The sky is taking on a distinct dark grey colour which could bring the rain we are to expect - so this means the next DIY task will be the de-cluttering of bedroom 2 ready for re-plastering and decorating. Ideal job for bad weather day!
