by Alfredo Zotti

Cut three large potatoes in halves and with a small spoon, carefully scoop out the potato flesh, leaving six potato shells with a bit of flesh and skin.Baked Stuffed Potatoes

Squeeze with your hands the potato flesh that you have scooped out. You should see a real lot of water come out.

Place the flesh in a bowl and add some chopped walnuts, a clove of garlic, one very ripe banana, some parley, 1/2 grated turnip, 4 cherry tomatoes cut in halves, sea salt, pepper, one chili, some diced tofu, and some bread crumbs. Mix well.

Fill the potato shells with this mixture and place in a well-greased tray, with olive oil and a bit of water. Cover with foil and let cook for 20 minutes.

Uncover, taking away the foil, and let it cook for a further ten minutes without foil, till its brown on top.

Serve with rocket salad (olive oil and balsamic vinegar).

About the Author

As a sufferer with Bipolar 2 disorder, Alfredo Zotti decided, some 20 years ago, to attend university at the age of 30, knowing that knowledge is vital for people with mental illness. Ten years ago, he started to help sufferers online because he also realized that only by helping others can we truly understand the human condition. He also started to write a journal and found that writing this journal, in cooperation with other sufferers, made it possible for him to see mental illness from a totally different, positive perspective.

Buying & Selling: Learning the Art of the Tag Sale

When people speak about making a few extra bucks, there is more than one way to skin a cat these days. Perhaps you’re trying to save up for a vacation for the family to take this summer. Perhaps you are looking for collectibles to invest in. Oddly enough, many people do not realize what, exactly, was in Great Grandma’s house when she passed on to a happier place. There are even those who will put her things on a table, mark them twenty-five cents, and declare them to be old knickknacks (AKA: things you need to dust every five seconds.) Trouble is, a lot of those knickknacks can actually be worth hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Heck, there have even been things found at tag sales that have been resold in the millions. No. Not kidding. Are the chances immense that you’ll find such a buy? No. But, there have been those that have proven this particular once-in-a-lifetime-event can happen.
