Back at It

Another summer has come and gone. Where does the time go?
Seems like yesterday my daughters were just finishing exams and now they are back at it again.

When teenagers come home from school they are hungry. It is all to easy to crack open a bag of store bought snacks laden with sodium and preservatives.  We recently discovered how to make your own potato chips in minutes. I whipped up a dip while the chips were cooking . They were a huge hit and we agreed they are tastier, cheaper and healthier than store bought chips and dip. We used the microwave but I plan on trying the oven next time.

"Chips and Dip"

  • 2 medium potatoes
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper

With a mandolin thinly slice the potatoes.
Place on a microwave safe plate and brush with olive oil on both sides.
Microwave on high for 6 minutes or until crispy and golden.
Place in a bowl and sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper.


1/2  tub of sour cream
1 tsp each (or to taste) of dill, onion powder,  seasoning salt, parsley and pepper
Combine in a dish and serve with the chips.
