11.This summer when Mike went with his girlfriend, Vera, to a night market, he was happy to find a stand that sells
jacket potatoes. Mike bought one with ham and pineapple for himself and asked if his girlfriend would also like to try
one. Vera agreed and ordered one with fruit salad. As the one she ate tasted so good, Vera asked whether Mike knew how
to make one.
Mike said he used to see how his host family made it when he stayed in America. And it was not difficult to make.
First, preheat the oven. Then, choose a good potato and wash its skin until it’s clean. After drying the washed potato with
a towel, put it into the heated oven and wait for twenty to thirty minutes. When the potato is ready, cut it open and put any
food you like on top of it to make it taste even better.
