And yes, I used to have pretty hands until I became a nurse and began using so much soap and water, hand sanitizer and gloves.

This means that the deal I made with the prof is a go! My first term test (that I only got 50% on) is now only worth 10% of my final grade and this one is reweighted to be 30% of my final grade.

But is my expensive face stuff in the lotion drawer? Nooooooo. All I can find are various hotel body lotions, tubes, bottles and jars of expensive perfume body creams, and heavy-duty hand and foot moisturizer. NOTHING for my face.

Do you think I can find the swan? No. Well, ok, I did see a couple online with the prices jacked up. Worse yet, it's a special edition.
$30 for a little plastic animal the size of my thumb? Not in this lifetime!

Of course Hasbro doesn't sell them direct, they just list the retailers that sell them. None of which seem to have the elusive swan. And of course Hasbro lists the suggested retail price at about four dollars. I think they're mocking me.

Heat oven to 350 (I usually use 425, but I'm odd like that.)

Scrub potato clean

Now you can go one of two ways:

A) Rub a little olive oil all over the potato and sprinkle on some salt

B) Wrap potato in foil

Put potatoes in the oven, directly on the rack. If you go with option A, put a little bit of foil underneath the potato on the bottom rack to catch any oil drips.

Bake until done. Usually an hour or slightly more. I always just check mine every so often by given them a little squeeze (oven mit on!) until they flesh inside gives easily.

Voila! Baked Potatoes in the oven.
