Oh, this hurts my heart. “From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler” was MY book when I was young and I still have an intense love for it. It made me want to run away and live in an museum, then run off and explore the world. (I wasn’t the only one, as Busy Philips and I discussed it.)
RIP Ms. Konigsburg.
Tamora Pierce put it best:
Ms. Konigsberg, I hope you and Eleanor of Aquitaine are finally getting to have a nice long chat.
Do you like potato chips? Single serving things? Stuff that isn’t greasy? Things that are easy to make? Well, if you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, you’ll probably like these microwave potato chips.
I’ve been trying really hard to not buy junk food but I still get the potato chip cravings every once in awhile. I usually just want a little bit, and I really don’t want to be tempted by a huge bag of chips. I will eat the whole thing in one day. These homemade chips are just as tasty and crunchy as those big ol’ bag o’ chips. One potato solves your chip craving and most importantly, these chips are not greasy.
For the seasoning, I used Old Bay because it’s an old obsession that won’t die although you can pretty much season it with whatever you want: salt and pepper, parmesan, cayenne pepper…the possibilities are endless.
