3. Potato surprise

Categories: CookOrDie#32 -- Permalink
The potato surprise mentioned yesterday was actually pretty okay, although I think I should've left it in the micro for a minute or two more so that the egg cooked completely. Next time, I can omit the rice and just eat the potato+egg+corned.beef mix as is. Slightly larger potatoes might be nice.

Potato Surprise

- 2 hollowed-out potato shells from last night's potato soup - 1 small can of corned beef (the smallest you can find; I'll look up the exact measurement soon) - 1 egg - Handful of minced onions

1. Fry corned beef with onions on high heat until it's nice and

crunchy. (Essentially, we are satisfying ourselves that the corned beef is more or less edible...)

2. Crack egg into bowl.

3. Mix corned beef into egg. Add salt if you want.

4. Pour mixture into potato shells.

5. Microwave potatoes for 2.5 minutes or until it seems safe. I

microwaved them in one of my ultra-wonderful rigid-plastic containers (not the cheap ones that deform; this is heavy stuff!) with an airhole, which kept the potatoes nice and moist.

Okay lunch.

2. Tickle Super-IQ test

131? Hmm. I wonder what questions I got wrong... <muses>

The way you think about things makes you a Creative Theorist. This means you are a highly intelligent, complex person. You are able to process information of nearly every kind with ease, using both creativity and analysis to make sense of the world. Compared to others you also have a very rich imagination.
