Nobody's Perfect- but these fries are!


Sometimes you just have to have fries! And when I saw the recipe in the latest Bon Appetit for these slow cooked fries I knew I had to try 'em.  Recipe here: Slow Cooked French Fries

They took an hour and 15 minutes but were so worth the wait! 


They were crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside and not greasy at all.  

 They may not be the healthiest thing to eat, but hey- they have no sugar or flour. And they are just potatoes! (and oil. And salt- of course). But mostly potatoes. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Fast Food

No, not that kind of fast food!  I'm talking about the stuff you throw together from whatever you have available because you are starving.  And then it turns out good. So good you would make again. Even plan on making it again ~ not just wait until the stars align and you happen to have the same ingredients on hand.

Like this pinto bean mash with grape tomatoes, oil cured black olives, and avocado. Oh and cilantro!
 With a little wine of course
 Or this less than photogenic eggplant sauteed with arrabiata sauce, capers and smoked paprika. This would be great served over polenta. But I was too hungry to wait any longer.

 I've never seen capers so tiny before!

Or a quick lunch wrap (or unwrap as it turned out). Messy but delish! 

 Romaine leaves, hummus, nutritional yeast, sun dried tomato, alfalfa sprouts and avocado.
 

 A quick snack- cukes with pico de gallo and hummus (just enough so the pico doesn't fall off).

 And now it's just about that time where I have to go see what's available tonight for dinner. Hmmm - I know I have an avocado, and some pinto beans.........
