Loaded Potato with Greek Yogurt, Shredded Cheddar, and Bacon October 1, 2012

Jamie says: It’s been a busy last few weeks between job applications, interviews, packing, cooking, exercising- and wrapping up the pilot program at work. I was so excited to distribute my Vet HEALTH 2012 Special Edition Cookbook & Guidebooks to the Vets. I also created a cookbook/guidebook to be distributed in future years to come and developed a manual for the next program coordinator(s). I also had my first book signing which was exciting. (I also asked the Vets to sign my book.)

For busy days and nights, a quick dinner (with enough leftovers for lunch) is a must. On one of those nights I made…

Loaded Potato with Greek Yogurt, Shredded Cheddar, and Bacon

I loved how this microwave meal was ready in minutes and was exploding with flavor. I was excited to have the other half for lunch the next day at work.

This potato was cooked in minutes in the microwave

    How clever! We love baked potatoes, but can’t stand how long they take to cook in the oven. Great tip!
