Tomorrow we are having a baked potato bar at the office. Everyone loved the Taco Salad day and we thought this would be a great thing to try. We created a sign-up sheet and everyone seemed excited. All day today I've been fielding questions.
"How many potatoes should I bring?"
"Is two pounds of butter enough?"
"What kind of cheese should I buy?"
The sign up sheet included:
Potatoes (we asked three people to bring enough potatoes for 22)
Cheese (we asked that two people bring cheese)
We also requested 4 people bring desserts, two bring drinks, and someone to bring flatware, cups, and napkins.
So tonight I made a pot of beanless chili and I made it hotter than if I were cooking for myself. Since sweet potatoes were on sale, I picked up 8 and baked them tonight also, thinking I'll take them as something different.
I can't help but wonder, upon reviewing the list, why the people who don't cook always sign up for dessert? Why not a bag of shredded cheese? A tub of sour cream? Sodas? A can of chili? Why dessert?
So, if you were loading a baked potato, what would you put on it?
