So last night I had this grand idea that I would make french fries. I would slice the potatoes, fry them, and season them perfectly. They would be fantastic.
I fried them.
I cooled them.
I turned the heat up.
And then everything went wrong.
Perhaps I turned the heat up too much? As soon as the fries hit the oil they burned. I also melted my spoon.
Why was I using a plastic spoon? Because I wasn't thinking. That's why! In case you didn't know:
I say from now on I just buy fries from the store and bake them in the oven. It's probably healthier AND less smokey.
