    Microwave-ready Potatoes

    At the grocery store, no joking around. Single potatoes shrink-wrapped and being marketed as Microwave-ready Potatoes. 85cents each.

    I shake my head. I laugh. It moves me. (Remember the pre-peeled bananas?)

    Does this include someone to feed it to me with a fork, while saying "Here comes to choo-choo train!" ?

    We could call them 'Super Primal Weight-Loss Potatoes' and make a fortune...$2/ea!

    And for an extra 50cents, we'll pierce them with a fork for you!

    I've seen those too. Walked away shaking my head. Really, how hard is it to get a potato ready to bake or microwave?

    I don't remember pre-peeled bananas. Actually quite happy about that.

    I microwave mine in a little fabric potato baking pouch my mom sewed for me for Christmas one year. Saves me from killing a tree for a paper towel or ingesting plastic polymer estrogen mimics from shrink wrapped plastic.

    I don't have a microwave anymore. People ask things like, "but how do you reheat cold coffee?" Um... pot on stove. "What about popcorn?" I don't eat corn anymore, but if I did, um... pot on stove. Nothing against them, just a small space and no need. It just cracks me up when people ask stuff like that.
