t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.

Cyclops Potatoes a Healthy Halloween Meal


In an effort to reduce the junk fest of Halloween, this year I am bringing these Cyclops Twice Baked Potatoes to the annual family party. Simple, simple, simple.

I baked my potatoes at 350 degrees for an hour. Scooped them out. The insides I mixed with 1 cup of keifer and a little garlic and salt. Refilled and grated a small amount of raw cheddar cheese on top. The eyeballs are olives and the veins are red pepper slices. I also dashed on paprika. Bake again at 425 degrees until golden.

I also thought sun dried tomatoes would work well and smaller potatoes like yukon golds or little red potatoes.

Happy Spooking!
