The Bachelor with a side of Potato

It's no secret I love The Bachelor. For years, my girlfriends and I have gathered every week to eat, drink and watch poor girls suffer through the process of finding love on national television. We used to be happy watching with a greasy pizza and a $5 bottle of wine, but as our viewing group grew and we got older and got married and had babies and actually learned to enjoy cooking, our pizza era ended. Now, everyone meets at our house each week (we have a baby who goes to bed at 7pm, so, you know) and we take turns cooking real dinners for the group. 

Last night was my turn to cook. I set up a baked potato bar with different topping combinations—one was pizza inspired, one was breakfast inspired, and one was Greek inspired—and made a spinach salad with bacon and aged white-cheddar dressing.

The food and company is even better than the show.

(Can you believe it about Lesley M.? Dang!)

(at least she didn't take tierra's sparkle.)
