poTato

March 4, 2008

Cooking, Gadget, Journal, Lauren

This is not an experiment. It is the tried and true way to bake a potato. I believe Brad the Terrible will get a kick out of it.

It will have its revenge. Look at the greenish tinge.

Recipe: Impale potato with spike. Rub with oil. Sprinkle salt in its wounds. Toss in red-hot oven until it cries for mercy. Devour.

I really hate potatoes.

    Does it actually cry for mercy? That would be COOL! They say that lobsters make noises when you drop them in the boiling water, but I don’t like lobster, so I’ve never tried it.

    Alright, this post convinced me to be a first time poster on the lloydandlauren site. I had to do more research on the nail in the coffin -- oh wait that is what Brad does, I mean nail in the potato. I found this link that explains it all.

    Yay for Lauren for taking care of the undead potato!!

    So does this qualify you as a Vampire Slayer or at minimum a Chupacabra Destroyer?

    I ran across your blog a few days ago, and now I know it was meant to be. I never get my potatos in the oven soon enough (big family problem) and now I can cook them in 30 mins. Yikes! I’m buying me some spikes!

    […] Tonight, though, we feasted like royalty! A tiny roast (hurried along in the process using the Spike Method), green beans, GRAVY and mashed potatoes. […]
