New Thing #351: Use a Mandoline

Scale_4

After years of denying that I needed one, I finally picked up a mandoline this afternoon. I’m just tired of slicing the required amount of potatoes for a batch of scalloped ones. Plus, it’s a total bitch getting them both thin and uniform enough to come out evenly cooked.

I grabbed a plastic OXO model which was a little more affordable than the metal varieties, but seeemd sturdy enough. Plus it has a nice dial to easily select your desired thickness.

After five minutes with a couple of pounds of spuds I don’t know how I could have ever lived without one.

I can’t wait to cook up some home made chips soon.
