New Love for the Spud

Potato I have rekindled an old love - baked potatoes!! On the Atkins diet potatoes were strictly forbidden - but on weight watchers a baked potato is only three points!!! Yeah, I know what you're thinking add on all the good stuff and it's up to 12 already! I don't do that. I am completely satisfied - and completely stuffed - w/ a plain baked potato, a little salt and pepper, and a 1 point pat of butter and I have a four point meal!! Unlike pasta, the carbs in baked potatoes satisfy me - they don't leave me w/ a sugar craving! I have been getting them a lot downstairs from the cafeteria. It's a cheap lunch, too. About $1.25!!

I also love twice baked potatoes (and as long as all ingredients are low cal/fat - you're fine), and simply cutting up a potato, sprinkling some Tony Chachere's all over them, putting 'em on a baking sheet, and into the oven they go!! Mmmm...that's good, too!!!

And for dessert today I have a bowl of fruit - melons, strawberries, and grapes!!!
