Homemade Potato Chips

Well, since the onion rings didn’t cut it, the next obvious choice was to try potato chips.

For this super simple snack just take 3 russets potatoes. Wash them and then slice them as thin as humanly possible. I didn’t peel them, but if you like your chips naked go ahead.

Pat dry the slices and put them in a large bowl with 1 tbsp. of olive oil and a pinch of sea salt. Toss to coat the potatoes.

Preheat your oven to 400°F and bake for around 30 minutes.

You should rotate the baking sheet at least once.  In addition, starting at the 10 minute mark you should check your chips every 5 minutes and remove any that look nice and crispy. This takes some effort but it’s worth it.

Who ate it?

Husband- uh, yeah.

Son #1- YES!

Son#2- YES!

Around our house:

Son #1 is finally reading!

It’s not exactly fluent and he still needs lots of practice but he is sounding out every word he sees and that’s exciting. Well, exciting and nerve wracking.

At our friend’s condo last week he saw the sign for the ” Fire Hose Cabinet.” Only the sign didn’t say “fire hose cabinet” but simply FHC.

So son #1 begins sounding  it out, “Fuh…Huh…K” and then a little faster and louder. I’m scanning the hallways making sure that no one is in ear shot. I don’t want to discourage him but this is not a word that anyone wants a 6 year old boy shouting on a Sunday morning.

“Fuh-huh-k… is that right mom?”


“What does it mean”

“Oh well, they’re just initials. We aren’t supposed to read them.”

“But I’ve heard you say it.”

And so my list of things to look out for, which until this week only included dog poop, erratic drivers, creepy men, and falling concrete, just got a little longer. I now have to watch out for those darn Fire Hose Cabinets.
