A Little Sidetrack Adventure

So we all know that potatoes can be prepared many different ways. You can bake them, boil them, mash them, slice them, fry them, shred them and instant them. But nothing, and I repeat, NOTHING beats launching them. That's right ladies and gentlemen, I said launching them. My friend from ecwrites.blogspot.com and I made Spud Guns for our spouses for Valentine's Day, but since they work out of town, we had to take them out and test these suckers out for ourselves. This is the result.



We did get them to fire, but they are extremely finicky about the fuel/air mixture and it wasn't as easy as all of those other YouTube videos make it look! I know, go ahead and laugh, it was super fun though!

  5. I love this! I'm a gamer at heart with a couple MMOs under my belt. Haven't gotten to utilize my D&D books though... I've been AFK due to pregnancy and now new baby.

    I was part of a blog previously that was all about recipes based off WoW items.

    I can't wait til my daughter is old enough for chores n such..we're going to base it on a leveling system :D

    Thanks for visiting - following you back!
