I have been so good on my eating plan...well, up until Halloween that is! There is still tons of leftover candy and goodies. I might be dumping the rest in the trash soon to curb the temptations!
I made fish for dinner the other night and the kids were asking for homemade french fries. I remember a technique that my Grandmother had taught me so they would come out extra crispy. Soo....onto cutting up the fries (Idaho potatoes of course!)...then, basking them in a bowl of ice water..yes! Ice water. Makes the potatoes nice and cold..in the meantime you heat up a pan of vegetable oil.
Make sure you drain the potatoes and dry them with paper towels really well.
Wait until they are a golden brown...then remove them with slotted spoon and place them on paper towels to drain...Salt them with fine salt as soon as you take the potatoes out of the pan...
I went out to do some errands this morning...I stopped off at the post office to pick up some stamps.
I asked if Christmas stamps had arrived yet..the worker told me they did, and I had a choice of a Christmas ornament, or a stamp with a mother and child on it.
I just looked at the worker and said, I would like the Holy Mother Mary and the Blessed Baby Jesus stamp if you have that!
Wasn't sure if he knew who they were... :)
I wish you all a wonderful Blessed day today!
