I figured out that there are 336 calories per half potato serving. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

blasted thing didn't fold and collapse

|I think they look pretty good!
|I really could use some of that
bacon and cheese right now.
Here is yet another fabulous potato recipe from Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond.. I made these wonderful potatoes and froze them so I could have them at any time. I think that any recipe that includes bacon is a masterpiece. What is it about it that just tops off a recipe?
These potatoes have so much flavor, I think I need to buy stock in the company that creates Lawry’s seasoned salt because I seem to be using it a lot lately. The other thing I am noticing, is that the longer I make Ree’s recipes, the more I am increasing the amount of pepper that I add to the mix. Pepper is my new favorite spice. Who knew that creating the recipes of a woman from Oklahoma, that I have never met, could have so thoroughly changed my taste buds. I love being Julia to Ree’s, Julie.
Yard Art - giant flowers
These flowers give me great pleasure. I love that they are large, happy flowers. I pick up yard art everywhere I encounter it. There are so many places that sell various items for the garden.

Helpful Home Hints
How many Rubbermaid or Tupperware containers do you have in your kitchen? I found that I had at least triple the amount I could use in a lifetime. I am not sure how they grew and grew, but they did. I pulled all of them out of my cabinets and matched them to the correct lids, a real feat in itself. I do not understand how you can lose the lids to so many containers. Where did they go? Are they with the socks that don’t match? This is a real mystery!
Anyway, I only kept the best ones that actually fit in the space with crowding or tumbling. I gave a lot away and had to throw away those that are stained, or dishwasher warped. I feel like a new person.
