I love good food. I may not readily go by the term “foodie.” Still, I appreciate anything that can make my taste buds dance and calm my growling stomach anytime.
When it comes to dinners, I love to experiment, which brings me to last night’s dinner.
I think I 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 are not, but as parents, yes, we are), but there’s just something about serving fries at home that feels special.
I’ve had very successful sweet potato fries from the oven. Still, maybe that’s because I never really get my hopes high with oven potato fries. On the other hand, fries are instant and pretty easy to make and could pass as the most go-to meal after pizza.
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 but crispy on the edges – as good as you’d get in a restaurant.
We get fries with our chickens, burgers, and other “snack” meals you can eat with fries. So yea, fries could seem so regular, but when made right, it could pass for a $100 meal in a fancy restaurant, and there won’t be a mumble from a hungry customer.
So if you’re looking for a way to up the dinner excitement tonight for your valentine(s), consider decanting the ketchup and doing a bag of fries; whatever else you serve it with is just gravy. Better still; go for a pack of Trader Joe’s fries.
