Cheap, homemade potato chips
I am having a lot of fun exploring how to minimize the things in the pantry. Last night I made yogurt with a crockpot and dry milk. Tonight I experimented with making potato chips! Now, there is a fine line between a potato chip and home fries which took a bit of time to discover but once sucessful....YuMMY! Surprisingly the best chips to come out were the ones I microwaved rather then frying on the stove. I still want to try the oven with a batch. I'll be doing that again though. I don't buy chips for the house at all...too much of a temptation and too little value for the price. This would be a nice way to have a treat and keep the serving the right size. Also I brought out some of the plain yogurt and used it as a sour cream sub. as a base for french onion dip. It worked wonderfully! We used both white and sweet potatos.
