Have you ever had one of those nights when you KNOW you will eating alone? Your spouse is running really late and secretly you are high-fiving yourself because you dont feel like making a big meal? I was excited to make a one-person meal. Although this dish could also feed a family, I like the personal one serving option. I actually made four, just incase my children had a change of heart and they all of a sudden like potatoes. Strange isn’t it? Potatoes. I shake my head in confusion. I think food is sooo good, why not like a potato? But hey, more for me and I like it that way.
I assure you, one potato is quite filling. But I made more….just incase….
Since the summer has ended, (HELLO FALL!) I wanted to make sure to use all of my tomatoes. So I did. All two. Added some fresh mint from the garden which added a real nice fresh touch. Threw in some lime, balance it with some sugar and you have one yummy salsa!
- 1/2 lime: freshly squeezed
- 2 small tomatoes or one big one: chopped
- 2 scallions: chopped
- 1 teaspoon of fresh mint leaves: chopped
- Sea salt and Pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 2 rustic potatoes
Step 1. Clean and pierce potatoes with a fork. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Step 2. Bake potatoes for 40-60 minutes until soft
Step 3. Mix remaining ingredients in a bowl
Step 4. Top on baked potato and add a dallop of sour cream
Besides this being an absolute simple recipe, it’s healthy and delicious. There’s no reason to throw in a frozen dinner. Treat yourself to some good food. Take a few extra minutes to cook a delicious meal for you Mama!
And guess what. You know how I made four? My husband came home hungry…go figure.
