What’s going on here?

I thought I covered my weakness for the sweet potato chips on my July 3rd post, but today They went bananas (for Them which means big time bonkers).  All day They made Kyla chips, one batch after another-I was in heaven. I guess They read Kirby’s recent post about sweet potato dog food where Kirby said that: “Another problem I find with Kirby that is a problem with many white dogs like him, although usually mostly superficial, is tear stains. I have recently kept it under control using various methods, one being sweet potatoes. As apparently it really helps naturally reduce this problem. Now the problem with this is you must take the time to peel, cook, chop and feed your dog this on pretty much a daily basis.”. Well, Kaci is enjoying sweet potato chips a few times a day and has no “tear stains”. I figured that They were making these for Kaci in mass production mode. Start off with quality sweet taters

Then put them into a 350F 175C oven for about 10 minutes

SAM_0675then turn them over give them about another 8 minutes

SAM_0676Yeah, they shrink but that’s life. They come out ready



Now I’m not complaining (M O R E of these is good), but why the volume?  They told me that in 2 weeks, we’d be taking a road trip-big time. We live in a place where we can be in my native Mexico in a couple of hours and now we’re going to be near Canada. It will be a long trip and we’ll see my relatives, the dachshunds in Montana. Not only that, but we’ll be given a guided tour by a friend who is an ex-park ranger of Glacier National Park.  We leave 2 weeks from today and I’m going to share the trip with you in posts but the Kyla chips are all mine and Kaci’s Don’t worry about Kismet-she’s not going but being boarded in the bird place with a lot of other parrots around (she won’t go-therefore she’s really a chicken). Don’t worry Kismet, we’l be back and rescue you.

Kaci and I have one thing to say about all these Kyla chips:

M O R E ! ! ! Pump up the volume, peeps, it’s gonna be a long round trip and we NEED a lot of them.

  7. I am going to try these for Sidney and Shelby. They both love winter squash, which tastes like a sweet potato without all of the calories.Hopefully they will like these. Thanks.

  8. Potato chips are a great traveling fare. I will send my mom to the supermarket thingy she should buy me one. Your tip with the grean beans was great – I think I can trust you :o) I hope you will have a great time and I’m so excited to hear all about your adventure.

  9. Yummy, yummy and more yummy.

    Have a woof woof day. My best to your assistant. 🙂

  10. Ooooh very cool!I will have to trythese out Kyla! They realy should make these!
    Thanks for mentioning us 🙂

    • They can’t make these organic and put salt and other stuff on it. I’m on a really restricted died-try that as a gourmande-and I needed a treat I’d love.As for the mention, I wasn’t going to present it as my idea-I got it from you.

  11. Oh, there is nothin’ wrong with ‘volume’!!!! The more the betters! FILLER UP!!!
    Oh, and can you send some my way…they sound like a good diet treatie, and Ma has me on treatie rations….not funs at all!!!! (I know you know how THAT feels!)

  12. A trip? A real one? Not just a virtual trip like mine?

    I’m jealous. Really. I am.

    Sweet potatoes for the road? I’ll have what she’s having…

    ArOOOOOO! Stuart

  13. Only one question about the recipe Kyla..how thick do the peeps slice the potatoes? from the pictures it looks like 1/4″ Is that right? Your trip is going to be totally amazing and I can’t wait to see all the pictures

  14. Yum, must get the peeps to make me some of them!

  15. We need to make those. Poor Scruffy has tear stains and she hates to have her eyes cleaned. Plus I think has just a tinge of Scottie in her because she adores green beans so she should like these. Fox will eat anything.
