Just dump a pound of tater tots (or any frozen greasy potato product) or chicken nuggets or essentially anything breaded and frozen intended for deep frying) in the basket it, set it, and forget it.

#39 Eat all the junk food you want as long as you cook it yourself.
There is nothing wrong with eating sweets, fried foods, pastries, even drinking soda every now and then, but food manufacturers have made eating these formerly expensive and hard-to-make treats so cheap and easy that we're eating them every day. The french fry did not become America's most popular vegetable until industry took over the jobs of washing, peeling, cutting, and frying the potatoes -- and cleaning up the mess. If you made all the french fries you ate, you would eat them much less often, if only because they're so much work.

They are currently sold out, but that has been my experience buying trees from state conservation services. You need to order first thing in the spring. I've had very good luck with the trees I have purchased through these programs and have planted hundreds.
