Tired? Poor? Hungry? Bereft of ideas? Baked potatoes are one of the cheapest and easiest dinners. Top them with baked beans, cheese and coleslaw, some cream cheese, semi sundried tomatoes with ricotta and pancetta, or throw in a load of sweetcorn, ham, cheese, onion, and tomato. Or just eat them with some salt and butter, like in the good old days.
