Three creations of potato “Boats”.
Are you tired of eating French fries or mashed potatoes? Try three creations of potato” Boats”! I will give you three great recipes with a little piece of meat and a lot of vegetables and different kinds of cheese. These recipes are excellent for the whole family to enjoy. They are perfect for vegetarians and healthy lifestyle users.
But, before I talk about these delicious dishes, I’d like to share what the US Department of Agriculture created: a “My Plate” (according to Wikipedia). It is a nutrition guide, a food circle depicting a place setting with a plate and glass divided into five food groups, which helps people to build a healthy dish at mealtimes. That’s included vegetables and fruits, grains also, protein, and dairy products.
After reading the US Department of Agriculture articles, I decided to change my eating habits. Instead of big pieces of baked meat, I added more vegetables and cheese to my plate. Also, I began creating new recipes using baking potatoes as the main dinner dish. It was awesome to watch my family eating them. Finally, I decided to share with you all my new creation.

TIPS for three creations of potato “Boats”:
1) Before starting to boil potatoes ( with the skin), poke the holes using the fork. Holes prevent steam from building up; otherwise, potatoes can explode. Also, a spoon of vinegar is perfect (add to water when you cook them).
2) Boiled potatoes will have a better taste if you put to the water a clove of garlic or slice of onion. Bay leaves are OK too.
