Homemade Potato Chips w/ Blue Cheese Sauce {#SundaySupper: tailgating}

Do you normally think chips when contemplating tailgate eats?  I don't.  But I'm not sure why.  I guess my mind naturally gravitates towards mains and heartier side dishes, but in reality, there's almost always a bag or two of chips tucked into mix somewhere.  So instead of making them an after thought, I decided that they were going to be the star today!

Homemade potato chips, simple as they are, can easily steal the show.  That pure potato taste...the salty crunch...the endless variations that can be made to suit your tastes.  Plus, you can make them in advance, let them cool, and store them in huge containers that are just ready to grab-and-go when you are.
