this is obviousely light hearted.

i saw an advert for mc cains frozen ready meal jacket potatoe... it gave me the rage the more i thought about it.

i mean why?.. seriousely why? just why?

surely you have to put it in the oven/microwave the same way you would put a normal bloody tatty in right?

are people really that easly fooled by advertising?

they cant be lazy as there doing the same amount of work by using them.. infact its costing them MORE?

do people need a box with instructions to know how to cook one?

i dont get it.

i reaally reallly dont fecking get it!

i cant be the only one.

i realize its not rational to be THIS raged when i think about it.. but i dtiabu

I've just enjoyed a frozen baked potato with beef in red wine stew. Yum.

chica I buy grated cheese too. I see as a service to the DCs in ensuring I don't serve them grated fingers too smile

I never really liked them. The skins don't go crunchy like oven baked ones, and that's the best bit!

I only make jacket potatoes in the oven (aka properly) if its already on for a casserole/pulled pork. Or I'll have baking in there too.

They only take four minutes each in the microwave (turning after 2) when using raw potatoes because they don't need cooking from frozen.

Also I buy a few kg of potatoes for about �2-3. But we get through a lot of them (got the smaller ones boiling now for mash with dinner).
