Ever do sweet potato chips? (Look at me, feeding the man's obsession...Sorry Mrs Joke!) Very, very good with curry.

Hmmmm. Sweet potato and curry...

You should try making sweet potato fries. Serve them with gently warmed REAL maple syrup. (I prefer the dark amber, but I'm a maple syrup junkie.) Try those. You can thank me later.
Curried poato chips. Damn you, Joke. Now I'm going to have to go buy a deep fat fryer because that sounds too good to pass up.

Sadly, down here in this corner of the Republic it's well-nigh impossible to get Grade B maple syrup (my fave) so I must make do with Grade A amber.
I'm thinking the curried sweet potato chips ought be in the waffle configuration to maximize the crunch, because SPs are not as crunchy as regular potatoes.
And you needn't get a deep-fryer. My modular JennAir cooktop came with one, but before then I was just using a big ol' stockpot with a clip-on (oh, shut UP Badger) thermometer.

I don't even like potato chips that much, and you have me salivating here. I need to make that onion dip. Yum!

You can order it online. http://www.piecesofvermont.com/gradeb.html If you have a Whole Foods, they may have their brand, too. It's called 365.
Up here, they're tapping the trees. Makes me want to stop and have a little sip from every bucket each time I pass those blue tubes and white pails. It's a shame they don't still do it the old-fashined way, with a metal spigot and shiny pail.
I'm going to have to make waffles this weekend, I can tell.

I suffer from being a foodie.
I believe there's a typo in the above sentence. I think it should read:
You suffer from MY being a foodie.
As for deep-fat frying being a pain--of course it is. But how else are you going to cook turkey for 50 people?

Of course you're right. I've long suffered from being a foodie. Now it's your turn.

Hey! I didn't say anything! I may have been THINKING, "I can't believe he doesn't affix the thermometer to the pot with a four in hand." Or I may have been thinking whatever it is that a nice Catholic boy like yourself may have thought I was thinking. But I didn't SAY anything.
Except for just now.
