I think my husband should have made last night’s dinner tonight–grilled steak over arugula salad, with fries. Not that we’re big on Valentine’s Day (I mean as a couple we’re not, as parents, yes!), but there’s just something about serving fries at home that feels special. I’ve had very successful sweet potato fries from the oven–but is that because we don’t expect that much from them? Regular potato fries have never worked when we’ve made them at home unless the deep fryer comes out. Until last night, when we had the Trader Joe’s fries. They were so perfect–not soggy, crispy on the edges. As good as you’d get in a restaurant. So if you’re looking for a way to up the dinner excitement tonight for your Valentine/Valentines, consider decanting the ketchup, and doing a bag of fries. Whatever else you serve it with is just gravy.
