Playing Many Parts

Cafe Thursday – French Fries

If you are a regular reader of my blog then you know that I am currently smack dab in the middle of a 3 week fast that has me eating only fruits, veggies, beans and oats.  So how can I possibly post a decent recipe you may ask?  Well, the truth is, I have actually been more creative in the kitchen in the past week and a half than I have been in a good long while.

Now, my brother thinks that this little recipe is cheating, but I think that since the ingredients are allowed, it is fair game!  So here is the recipe for the only meal I have really enjoyed since being on this fast: Home Cooked French Fries.


2 – 4 medium sized potatoes, quartered and then cut into strips

4-6 cups of Canola Oil

Dash of Emeril’s Essence


Put oil in a sauce pan or deep fryer and heat.  Add potatoes to pan until they are golden brown (took about 15 minutes for mine).  Remove potatoes from the pan and place them on a plate covered with paper towel and sprinkle with Essence.

    noticed much detoxing going on?

    usually kicks in after 3 days (lots of bowel activity, coating on the tongue, skin eruptions)

    unpleasant for a week, but you need to get that crap out

  2. Wanderer,
    A little bit, but nothing on the tongue or skin as far as I have seen.

    I have been pretty tired, but this week that is getting better.

    Traying to make a permanent move to all natural foods, but boy is it ever hard! It would help if I liked the taste of veggies more.

    If you have any recipes or such feel free to pass them on.

    And thanks for stopping in!

    Have you tried deep-frying in olive oil? I am sure it’s more expensive (although you can reuse the oil) but it’s great for the cholesterol. Last time I was due to have mine tested, I just cooked everything in olive oil (i was going through a big deep-frying kick at the time, too) and ate a lot of seaweed (crunchy snack!) and oatmeal, and it tested nice and low instead of disturbingly high like the year before.

    Oh, you’re making me hungry!

    We bake our fries now with some cooking spray. Way better for my heart.
