Some dark clouds can have some pretty colossal silver linings – don’t you think? Last week I mentioned how I came home to waterworks. A pipe leading to my water heater (right by my washer and dryer) had busted. And, while we waited for the plumber, my dogs tried to help clean up the mess by trying to lap up ALL the water! The leak turned out to be a quick and easy fix and, when he was done, the plumber asked me if I needed someone else to clean up the water. But, being the cheapskate I am, I figured I’d do it myself – I mean it was just cleaning up some water, right?
When I yanked my dryer forward to clean under it, the dryer hose connecting it to the vent busted! And just when I was beginning to think this dark cloud was getting darker by the minute, I reached down to get the dryer hose when chunks of gunk began to fall from it. That hose was clogged so badly, I am just so thankful that my water pipe busted so I found that hose before it lead to a fire! After I replaced that hose, now it no longer takes us 2 cycles to dry our clothes!
And speaking of silver linings…on those days when my daughter brings home a friend amidst the busted pipes and crazy dogs and cleaning up, I sure am glad to look in my freezer and find a packet of Farm Rich Loaded Potato Skins! I am pleased as punch that my daughter and I picked up a couple of these packets at Kroger to keep on hand for unpredictable evenings and unexpected guests.
Farm Rich Loaded Potato Skins are one of those feel-good foods that are thoroughly enjoyed by my daughter and her friends as a meal or a snack #FarmRichSnacks. These hand stuffed Loaded Potato Skins are made with potatoes from Idaho and 100% cheddar cheese. I threw together a quick and easy 3 pepper salad as a side to the potato skins that was ready in the 15 minutes it took for the potato skins to bake.
