Cold spaghetti, cold spaghetti……Okay, okay, I’ll stop, but I bet you already hate my guts if you have any clue what this song is or the annoying, colorful little men who sing it.

I love twice baked potatoes, but they can be a little heavy.  Since I made a truly manly meal for Drew for Father’s Day of steak and scallops, I couldn’t hardly leave out the potato of the steak and potato dinner.  Since I, too, had to eat the heavy meal, I decided to lighten it up a little bit by replacing the usual butter and cream with reduced fat milk, some scallions for crunch, and Heluva Good! Bacon Ranch Sour Cream Dip.  SOOOOOO TASTY!!!!
