Thanks to Steve's steady hand with the mud, the sanding process won't coat the entire house in fine particulate matter. The weather looks great this next week so the outside vent install is next on the list.
To fuel all this work I am spending a lot of time in this sunny place making food for the bathroom-project-weary.
One thing that always cheers both of us are french fries. Who doesn't love them? They don't have to be grease laden gut bombs to taste delicious! We are still loaded with potatoes from last season, which have stored quite well. If you've not grown them, give it a try this season and then enjoy this favorite food and munch away happily knowing they are pesticide free, baked and still absolutely delicious. Yum.
5 or 6 medium sized potatoes (ours are Blue Gold, a nice firm sort of waxy textured potato)
1-2 tbsp Olive oil
Salt (1/2 teaspoon or so)
1-2 tbsp dried herbs and/or spices (sometimes we use dried basil or marjoram and other times we use ground cumin and chili pepper)
Slice or cut your potatoes into fry shapes. We are super low tech and use one of these to cut our fries. Put them in a bowl and toss them with olive oil, salt and herbs or spices. Spread in a single layer on a prepared cookie sheet. (very lightly greased or parchment papered)
Bake at 375 degrees F for approximately 40 minutues (or until desired crispness), tossing halfway through.
Serve hot and with ketchup. Yum.
