I am not making this up! Larry Craig's Specialty Recipe? "Super Tuber"
From "Congress Cooks"

(Emphasis mine. You must "avoid splatters", you know)



Super Tuber is a great snack that uses one of my favorite vegetables: The Idaho Potato. Of course, I suppose any type of potato could be used, but I cannot guarantee that a Super Tuber made with anything but a true Idaho potato would taste as good. Sincerely, Larry E. Craig, United States Senator

Ingredients
1 hot dog, cook's choice
1 Idaho baking potato, 7 to 10 ounces
Mustard for dipping, any style
Other condiments as desired such as cheese sauce, sour cream, chili, chives, bacon pieces or black olives.
Wash and dry potato. Rub with shortening or butter. With an apple corer or small knife, core out the potato center (end to end). Push hot dog through the center. Bake until potato is cooked through.

To Microwave: Place on microwave safe plate; cover loosely (to avoid splatters). Microwave on high about 4 minutes per potato until fork tender.

To Bake in Conventional Oven: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Bake for approximately one hour or until potato is fork tender.

To Barbecue: Wrap in aluminum foil and place above medium hot coals, turning at least once during cooking. Cook until potato is fork tender.

Serving Suggestions: Allow potato to cool slightly. Eat as a finger food, dipping in your favorite hot dog condiments (mustard is my favorite).

Suzanne Craig

6. Larry will come to your house to personally supervise the pushing of the hot dog through the potato.
And then he'll help you make the Super Tuber.

9. TominTib, you ought to email a copy of this thread to Jon Stewart.
Maybe the recipe for "Super Tubers" can run on a news crawl for one of his upcoming programs.

The public deserves to know how Suzanne Craig serves up those Super Tubers.

I'm surprised Larry King hasnt had the Craigs on to demonstrate their Super Tuber recipe for that prime-time 9:00 demographic.

14. I don't know how to do that.
Hell, it took me years to figure out how to post on DU.

Actually, I got a new girlfriend who was computer-savvy and she showed me how to post.

13. I heard about this on one of the Public Radio shows I listen to over the weekend.
It was either "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me!" (They call him "the gift that keeps on giving") or "Wha'd Ya' Know?" or one of the weekend News shows, but I think it was "Wait, Wait..." :evilgrin:

Yes, here's the link: <http://www.npr.org/templates/rundowns/rundown.php?prgId... >

It's the second "Who's Carl This Time?" link, damn Java script won't let me copy the direct link for some reason.

19. I have a song like that
We were writing songs in a songwriters' workshop.

When your turn came, you had to make up a song on the spot with the State's name (which you had just drawn out of a hat) as the first word.

Mine was Idaho.


Idaho
But she left me
Same day that she met me
Said she'd rather go back to the farm
And work in the field


I am sure that if I was not so loaded right now, I could remember more of it.

20. I Love Idaho
Sing to the tune of "I Love Rock n' Roll"

"I Love I-da-ho
Put another pig in the blanket, bay-bee"

Inspired by my seven-year-old daughter who mistakenly started singing "I Love Idaho" when the Joan Jett song came on at a roller rink.

I hang out in the Lounge, so I can't possibly appreciate it.
