Baked potatoes chagrin ?!

Chagrin, yes, because at this age (three-quarters-and-counting), I should be better in the kitchen?! I’m a “depression era” baby. I grew up with parents who saved string, foil, bags, nuts, bolts, screws, etc., etc.  I, too, have saved those same items (and hauled them from California to Ohio, to North Carolina, and to Texas). Recently (documented in this blog) neighbors unsolicited brought me groceries. They brought food items I never purchase. Today I confess I had potatoes to “save.” Today I baked, yesterday I boiled. This morning I used an oven for the second time in more than six years. (Read about first time…) True story: I can’t remember the last time I used an oven (prior to my move to Texas). Why? Because I’ve preferred salads, and fresh fruit and veggies.



“The old lady” did a Google search to get details about freezing baked potatoes.

To freeze whole baked potatoes, poke several holes in them using the tines of a fork, and wrap them in one layer of heavy-duty aluminum foil. … Freeze the potatoes uncovered until they’re solid, about one hour. Then wrap each one again in heavy-duty aluminum foil and place them in a heavy-duty freezer bag.

    I had no idea you could freeze baked potatoes. Leftover potatoes are also good cut up and fried. It gets them a little crispy. If you had something for a broth base, you could make some good soup, too. Or maybe you could add to some of the Patriot meals?
