It is almost impossible to deny the children from eating fried stuffs and especially french fries. But I feel less guilty if I am the one doing the cooking instead of them frequenting fast food restaurants and their greasy foods. Moreover, preparing them myself means I am assured that the oil used for frying is cleaner than those dark, cancer-causing ones used by some restaurants.
Make some french fries and there you have it, a plate of fried chicken and fries, at the fraction of the cost of fast food restaurant.
My favourite brand of french fries is the Simplot brand. I like their tagline – Keeping it hot longer. (or something like that). My kids mixed their own mayonnaise to go with the chicken and fries. Just add some icing sugar to the mayo and it is less sour. No need to load the fries with salt too.
