My grandma makes delicious twice baked potatoes. Back when I was a meat eater, my favorite was the cheese and bacon one. After I became a vegetarian, I think she used imitation bacon bits at least once or twice, but I also liked the sour cream and chives ones.

When I realized I wouldn’t be staying more than a few days in Canada, I went to the grocery store to get some Mr. Noodles. I will miss Mr. Noodles.

Some of my favorite breakfasts included my dad’s home-fries, whether as part of the main course, or on the side. He used to throw in a little “secret ingredient”, which I think is season salt, but the season salt we have here is pretty old, so I didn’t use it. These potatoes are seasoned a little differently, but I think they come close to how my daddy makes them. I think my dad used to fry them in butter or margarine, and then later canola or other vegetable oil, but now we use olive oil.
