After taking my supplements for the day and enjoying a super-light breakfast, I knew I needed an additional pick-me-up after pulling an all-nighter. But, I wasn’t in the mood for coffee. Something about coffee reminds me too much of the work week… I wanted something sweeter and especially suited to the season. A chai tea latte sounded like a dream! Dropping $4 for one did not , so I did what any other frugal diva would and learned how to make one myself.

I’ve been making these for years, and I even bought this totally unnecessary gadget , which I used exactly once. (You’re supposed to stand the potato slices in this piece of slotted, circular plastic from which, once they are cooked, it will take a bipartisan act of congress to get them unstuck.
