Homemade French Fries!

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.
Then, I plopped them into the hot oil...
Sizzle, Sizzle!!!
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...
DELICIOUS! Yes, I had many...now back to healthy eating! :)
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!
