Note: when making home made french fries, be careful when transferring cut potatoes from (water) bowl to the oil. Water and oil=a dangerous combo. You dont need much (vegetable) oil anyway. A half cup will do. A half cup of oil can make several cups of fried potatoes. They are tasty with each cup only totaling 156 calories. Thats not too bad for a starchy vegetable.🍠 I also added a dash of crushed red pepper🌶 and dashed it with some salt and pepper! But first and foremost, I peeled, cut, then washed the potatoes. Slice them in even cubes for balanced cooking time. I added my favorite, kosher salt. But before I added the salt, I let them sit in cool water for a few minutes! This gives them a crispier effect after they come out of the oil! You can add them on the side with eggs for breakfast, a steak or chicken dinner. You cant go wrong! Tomorrow I am making a french onion chicken bake! Stay tuned!

I LOVE potatoes but have to avoid them where possible because of type 2 diabetes. I would love to try your dinners, Zina!

Oh, John, everything in moderation. Potatoes are not the best choice for any of us since they are a ‘starchy’ vegetable. I see where you’re coming from.🙂
My sister says the same thing about moderation, I do cheat sometimes with a small bag of real tater chips or a small fry from a junk food joint!
