Dill Potato Skin Fries

G and D worked on this together with a fry cooker. They took potato skins (we used the potatoes for something else) and put them into the frier with dill weed spices. It turned out very well, but I don't have a final picture because these were eaten too quickly.


  1. looks like delicious....!!%%?!!!!!

  2. Good job! What are you using in the fry cooker? I have one and have hesitated to use it due to the cost of oil and how much will go to waste(?) Tell the kids - next time we want a pic of the final yummy!

  3. We don't cook potatoe skins over here! WEird you people are! Weird. lol

  4. Chris, you eat your potatoes raw? Um, that's really kinda more weird LOL!

    Thanks, Harish! I only had one, and it tasted like pickles and french fries all at once.

    Kathy, I'll ask D because I stay way away from the fry cooker. Just because I'm me and have had enough accidents for the year already. :]

  5. Ok, Kathy, D uses Crisco, he tells me, and dill with the potatoes. :]

  6. That sounds so yummy -- and terribly fattening!

  7. Also to let you know ... you don't just use a bunch of crisco and through it away ... it can be used over and over.

  8. oh sounds easy enough for me to try! I like easy recipes!

    About the church and the clubs. you are so right, they need a church there don't they? one of the owners of a couple of the bigger joints ran for county commisoner several times. Thankfully he lost! Also had a cable public access show for some time where he spewed his atheism! Name was Joe Reddner.

  9. Not a huge fan of the dill flavor myself, but I can believe they went quickly [smile].


  10. That sounds delicious. Garlic would have been yummy too!

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!
