{recipe} Low Fat, Hot Chips (and truckloads of taters from the garden)

Guilt-free, hot chippies! Yum!
Peel your potatoes and slice into thick chips. Dry on absorbent paper and place in a large mixing bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of oil (I use either Canola or Olive). Sprinkle with sea salt and toss to combine. Place on baking sheet that has been lined with baking paper. Cook in a hot oven (turning once) for about 30-45 mins or until golden  (depending on your oven...just check them from time to time).

A few years ago, pickle #2 planted potatoes in our garden. Now every year we get a bumper crop...truckloads in fact!!!!

Home grown potatoes taste SO MUCH BETTER than from the shops. Especially if you mash them. But then, doesn't everything taste better when you grow it yourself? We don't use pesticides or chemicals (except for our garlic and chili spray to get rid of pests). We also compost, have a worm farm and use our chooks' poo on the garden.

Pickle #1 and #2 replanting the smallest potatoes for next year.

Dirty work....and they love it!

Our vege garden is being built this winter along with the chook enclosure.Dave works 7 days a week in the warmer months...so for things like this, I have to wait. Wish I had it already!

  8. Hi Marnie,
    Your little guys with their Truck Loads of potatoes are just precious. Brings back memories when my boys helped me dig potatoes in the garden. There is nothing like that fresh potato from the ground to the pan, it is amazing. Thanks for sharing this special post with Full Plate Thursday and come back soon!

  9. Ooohh, I so needed a recipe like this. I'm definitely making them.

  10. I love new potatoes...and lots of help in the garden! I raised 4 sons and they were always so helpful and FUN! ♥

  11. So, you will wish for to do some shopping before getting
    the loan. Companies are trying out Fiat leasing
    over the regular options of buying. If a dealer tells you that it is not or
    unwilling to do so… they are plenty of other vehicles and dealers that offer and will.
