Loren, I don't really have a "carved in stone" recipe, but here's what I generally do. Get a couple of large russet potatoes. The type of potato does make a difference. I puncture the skin with the tip of a knife about 6 or 7 times. Then, either put on a grill or in a 425 F oven for about 50 minutes or so, till completely cooked through. Cut a small opening lengthwise, and scoop out the interior, leaving the skin in tact. For 2 spuds, I mix the spooned out potato with salt and pepper, about 1/4 cup of sour cream, 1/4 cup of butter, two thick slices of thoroughly cooked and crumbled bacon, either finely chopped chives or the thinly sliced green parts of green onions (I prefer the onions), and shredded cheese - cheddar, jack, or a mixture. Combine everything and stuff back into the potato skins, with some shredded cheese on top. Back in the oven for about 10 to 15 minutes, and serve.

I suppose you can use more sour cream and butter, and even some whole milk. However, I prefer the consistency to be closer to a baked potato than mashed potatoes. Some people prefer garlic, but I don't. Just my tastes. As always, experiment till it's just right for you.

Oooog!  Steak au Poivre - the premiere dish at a long-since-closed place in Cleveland Heights called "Turkey Ridge."  They too served it with a twice-baked potato which was itself to die for, never mind the steak itself which, when done rare, was the food of the gods.

Pat, if you have a recipe for that twice-baked potato, please share.  It seems to have become a lost art at most restaurants these days, and that is unfortunate.

I know what you mean, Randall. Planning a big dinner tomorrow of all the things I really don't need. Steak au Poivre from filet mignon. Twice baked potato. Grilled asparagus (temp is supposed to be 57 F tomorrow - so I can grill the potatoes and asparagus outside). And, a carrott cake with maple walnut icing. I already hear the treadmill calling my name.

How I hate to see the big food grabbing in the supermarket! It spoiled my appetite and I came home with no more than veg for three days and a veggieburger.

Celebrated my deceased parents "75th wedding anniverary" and the Winter Solstice by eating out with my sister. We had Chinese food, buffet style, at a place called "Everything OK", no question mark, although they come around and ask! The food was very good. I stuffed myself for $8.00. Sometimes you just have to live it up.

I had an interesting dish last night. Fried cabbage and sausage (with onion) on a bed of spaghetti (to simplify). It doesn't particularly sound good, but it was! Acorn squash on the side.

Joan, I susoect not. I think the o,dest seed ever grown was a 2000 year old Judean palm - extinct until that seed was germinated. It turned out to be male, but may hybridize with related palms. By backcrosding for a few generations, an almost comlpletly Judean palm could be created. I dont know how sex chromosomes work in palms, but suspect the descendents could never be 100% pure Judean palm. But close.

What they might be able to do is clone selected genes to re-generate them. Of course, then they woukd be GMO

I wonder if any of these seeds can sprout? If so, I hope someone saves the seeds for future generations; we may need the heirloom source.

How's this for leftovers - 10,000 year old lentils, peas, fava beans, and lentils found in Israel. 

Amazing we still eat these foods 10,000 years later.

I have tried to cut back on eating wheat products, including cereals, all because I read that arthritis can be alleviated by eliminating wheat (and other grains) from ones diet. Like sugar, I haven't been able to completely refrain from eating wheat. Since my thumb arthritis comes and goes, I'm not making any conclusions as to whether cutting back has helped. I'll try Michael's suggestion.
