I LOVE my Food Processor

How did I ever live without it?! My parents gave me a Hamilton Beach ChefPrep 500 for Christmas and I LOVE IT!!! I already have a long list of recipes waiting, but tonight I really wanted to use it for something simple. I had a long day at work and a bag of potatoes in the cupboard, those don't always happen at the same time :)
This may be common in all food processors, BUT I love the food slicing option on this particular model. I have a mandolin slicer, but I think it may be a bit dull. So tonight I tried out the slicer ( I know the first use I don't even liquidate anything!) and I made homemade chips.

It sliced them thicker than my mandolin, so at first I wasn't quite sure. BUT they turned out perfectly! The thickness was actually perfect and the chips didn't stick together when frying. Chips are a luxury and shouldn't be enjoyed often, so if you're going to indulge, make it good! Plus I know that my fryer is dedicated gluten free!

Ooh, homemade potato chips sound awesome. I really should work on using my food processor more often...I honestly forget I even have it. Lol! I don't know how I ever lived without a Kitchen Aid mixer though. :)
