Wednesday Baked Potatoes

I'm weirdly proud of my baked potatoes.  I rarely get them wrong and a good baked potato is a fine thing.  Well skewered, salt rubbed into the skin and put into a high oven for an hour.  Take it out, hit it on top with a karate-esque chop so the filling bursts out and et voila - the perfect fluffy baked potato!

This week we had it with prawns and salad in a spicy marie rose sauce - a classic for a reason!

As it was Joe's dad's birthday, we also raised glass of whisky - a fitting drink for Burn's night (which we will be celebrating at the weekend).
