These are delicious, easy, and great to serve as an appetizer. They can be served hot or cold, though I personally favor them right out of the oven. If they are hot though, the blue cheese mixture will melt off pretty quickly, so they should be eaten right after preparation.
20 small potatoes (the grocery store usually has different varieties, and I think they all work)
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 cup sour cream|
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives, to garnish (make sure you use fresh chives)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
2. Wash and dry potatoes. Throw in bowl and toss with vegetable oil.
3. Dip the potatoes into the salt to coat lightly, then spread potatoes out on a baking sheet.
4. Bake for 45-50 minutes, until the potatoes are tender.
5. In another bowl, combine the sour cream and blue cheese and mix together.
6. Cut a cross into the top of each potatoes. Press your finger in the cross so that the potatoes open slightly. Be gentle or the potatoes will split too far. If this happens, don’t worry, they still taste delicious.
7. Top each potato with a spoonful of the blue cheese sour cream mixture. Garnish with chives.
OH MY GOOODDDD GET IN MY RIGHT NOW I DONT EVEN LIKE BLEU CHEESE WTF AJLSDJFSLIJFLISJFILEJFSLJ YUUUMMMMMMEEEEEHHHHH
I’ve made these like 5 times and they were perfect every time. Finally reblogging.
The chemistry nerd in me loves this.
and then a part of me thought about it being CH4 and that there would be four hydrogens with the carbon and then i turned that part of my brain off before i got any further
No, don’t turn it off. You know you want to go there.
Btw, since Neon is a noble gas, does that make her asexual?
polygamous relationships are more common and acceptable in their society, obviously. and orientation is somewhat less important because there are so many different ways to bond (so many possibilities for pick up lines from that sentence). let’s see, with noble gases, helium and neon would be asexual, argon, krypton and radon could be gray-asexuals and xenon the slightly more specfic subtype of demisexual? they’re quite comfortable with this and they’re good friends with the elements but nothing more.
the halogens get on really well with everyone, especially the metals, and fluorine in particular gets a lot of flak because of how ‘well’ she works with others which, hey, rude. in reality, fluorine is a petite, bubbly lady who prefers long-term, committed relationships. she just naturally falls into very serious relationships very quickly, ok? it works surprisingly well for her though the beginnings can sometimes be a little bit rocky and damaging and actually some of her relationships have been quite toxic. however once things settle down they’ll stay together.
in fact fluorine is the one of the only ones to have dated some of the noble gases but eventually they decided to end things. it just felt a little artificial, you know? the other halogens also have had a lot of relationships though not as notably as fluorine. the halogens are also ok with taking a break from relationships and just enjoying their own company. they work well in pairs when they go out as a family. they don’t like being left completely alone though and are very extroverted.
hydrogen is pansexual. because hydrogen. he’s been attracted to a variety of people throughout the years but he never really had the Gay Crisis that others have had when they discovered their attraction to an unexpected element. he’s a really relaxed guy who works well with almost everyone. sometimes he’ll also go on double dates with another couple and it actually helps them all to bond a little bit more. what a great guy.
the metals are a complex lot. a lot of them are very happy to step away from a relationship if they think there’s a better person for the other element but they can also be quite selfish in pursuing an element who is already dating someone else if they think they can get them. not to mention that their family is huge and other elements aren’t even completely sure who is a metal and who isn’t. when put under high pressure, who knows what secrets will come out from a supposed non-metal. they’re a solid lot however and can happily be single.
carbon gets the elements hot and bothered. his siblings in group 14 are constantly going ‘goddamnit carbon’. he’s just so important for the world and he’s suave and you never know if he’s alone or with someone and oooh carbon oooh.
you guys i just spent way too much time thinking about the relationships of anthropomorphised elements based on bonding this is not what i planned to do with my day
