Baked Potato Chip Buffalo Chicken Nachos & The Almost Broken Nose

I almost had my nose broken on Sunday. That statement in itself is not unique but when you add ‘by a roll of duct tape’ to the statement, it becomes a bit more interesting.

Our daughter has been waiting for us to repaint and makeover her bedroom for two months so we woke up yesterday deciding today was the day and by 9 am, her room was empty and waiting. While my husband and daughter were off buying the paint, I decided to surprise them by having the room all taped up and ready to be painted when they got home.

Not knowing that scissors and large roll of duct tape had been placed on the top of the ladder, I picked it up to move it into the desired location. That is when the wind was knocked out of me: The scissors fell to land with a large thud on my chest followed by the huge slug on my nose by a roll of duct tape. I fell to the floor in pain, quickly assessed that the scissors did not enter my chest wall but felt as if my nose was broken.

Following an extended session of crying and hugs from our son, I accepted that my nose was not broken however, my glasses had been ‘altered’. I should add that once my son saw the I was alright he stated: ‘Mom, don’t say a bad word because you won’t get a Christmas present from Santa’.  That made me laugh.

After an early visit to the eye doctors this morning, my glasses are no longer eschew. I promise to share photos of the room once completed.

Remember the last time I made baked potato chip nachos? oh, you should. This time, we went Buffalo!

glad your nose is not broken! So scary!
Your son cracks me up!

I love chips for nachos. Went to a place that was doing St patty’s themed one and used a guiness based cheese sauce on them- so good. Potato chip nachos are always amazing.

Yikes, being wacked in the face by duck tape is no fun. Hope no more surprises raining on you. The nachos look great and the tablecloth with the ants are cute.

OUCH!!!!! I’m cringing in pain for you.

On the other hand, this dish is outrageous. I love homemade potato chips, and buffalo anything. Looks so delicious Jen!

Ah, glad your nose isn’t broken! These chips sound amazing. They remind me of these homemade bleu cheese chips that I get a restaurant near me. A must try. :)
