Baked Potato Skins


4 large baking potatoes
Olive oil
Salt to taste


1 cup quartered cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup grated Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
3 green onions, chopped
4 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
1/4 cup chopped black olives
1 (4-ounce) can chopped green chilies, drained
1 (15-ounce) can chili with beans
Sour cream for garnish

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Bake potatoes 45 minutes to 1 hour until
tender. When potatoes are cool enough to handle, halve or quarter and
scoop out all but a thin layer of pulp. Save pulp for mashed potatoes
or potato pancakes. Place potato skins, skin side down, on baking
sheet. Lightly brush inside of skins with olive oil and sprinkle with
salt. Bake 10 minutes until potato shells are crisp. Add preferred
toppings and return to oven for 10 minutes. Top with sour cream and
enjoy. Serves 4.

-> Can you look at the clouds and tell the direction of the wind?

An interesting phenomenon of wind is that it can blow in multiple
directions at the same time, at different heights from the ground.
But usually there is a prevailing wind. HSLDA watches the gusts
and monitors the prevailing trends of change in the legal climate
of home education. So no matter which way the wind is blowing,
we're there to protect your family.
