I had a boyfriend once who could make chips.  Proper chips.  Like you would have here in the UK from a fish and chip shop.  I was always VERY impressed by this.  I have never, ever made chips.  Not even oven chips.  Until now.  Who knew it was so easy to do?  I’m guessing that you could do the same thing with a good old King Edward potato.  It’s yet another cooking revelation for me, all thanks to an old movie star!

Super simple to do, as these were just for me, I just used one sweet potato…  Quite a big ‘un though…

Chop ’em up.

Bake them in the oven with oil and salt

Sprinkle on some cinnamon (?!) and scoff.

I had these with some of William Shatner’s Steak Picado that I found in the frozen archives – it was a SUPER spinster dinner!

I’m on my holidays at the moment on beautiful Mersea Island

…so I don’t have the recipe handy.  I’ll try and remember to come back and post it here.  But if I forget, and you would like it, get in touch via the Contact page and I’ll send it over.

I am eating lots of delicious things and have been to one of my very favourite places to eat in the whole world – The Company Shed…

Nice exercise bike Nan!  I think I’ll need to set my one up when I get back from this very indulgent eating and drinking holiday…
