I see driving on the freeway as being part of a very large Automobile Parade...if someone pulls into the lane in front of me, I smile and wave - Queen style (palm up, turning ever so slight to the right and left) and I'll drop back a bit to make sure they have enough room...I'm nice like that. I am not a road rager - I'm happy to let anyone in and to take my time. The mister is not. He cannot drive on any road without taking every little thing personally. Case in point: Yesterday as the mister was approaching the 405 ramp, some nice little lady driving an equally nice little Prius (the mister hates Prius' because they are quiet and once while walking he was surprised by one when it pulled up next to him - he jumped and fake 'karate-chopped' the air, teaching that Prius a lesson!) managed to squeeze in front of us so she could make the exit ramp. Instead of welcoming in this non-threatening little car, the mister went into a full-blown-verbal assault...every expletive you can imagine sputtered out like verbal vomit with a final slap to the dashboard to seal his frustration! The little lady in the little Prius did not have freeway-ramp-to-other cars-reception and heard not one word of the mister's rant. Pity. I'm sure she would have enjoyed it as much as I did...not! I just don't get the mister and his road-tantrums...did he really think the little Prius deliberately planned to be there at the very moment we were so it could speed up in front of us and beat the mister to the ramp??! I'm quite certain that all road-ragers will go to Freeway Hell where everyone drives and screams until their blood pressure goes up so high their heads explode. The mister is going there for sure...hope springs eternal!
Have you ever wondered what to do with left-over baked potatoes? Well wonder no more! This is the perfect way to use them! Scoop out part of the potato, but not too much, and sprinkle in some chopped green onion, cheddar cheese and sausage or bacon bits. Crack an egg over the top and pop into the oven...spontaneous oohs and aahs will follow.
Baked Potato Breakfast Eggs - Pots and Pins
3 baked potatoes, cut in half
2 green onions, finely chopped
1/2 cup grated or finely cubed cheddar cheese
1/2 cup cooked sausage or bacon bits
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Scoop out part of the potato, leaving a little less than a half-inch all around. Sprinkle some of the green onions, cheese and sausage into each potato half. Crack an egg over each half of potato. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and add more cheese, if desired. Bake in 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until whites of eggs are done. Remove and serve immediately, sprinkle any left over onions, cheese or sausage on top. Serves 6 normal people, or 3 very hungry men.
