This blog is a little p.s. to my last post but I made something yummy last night that I thought I would share. As I mentioned in my previous post, I have had to adjust my cooking now that matt is adopting a healthier lifestyle. Last night, we made hamburgers out of deer meat, which is very lean. We used romaine lettuce instead of iceberg and wheat buns instead of white. On the side I made some homemade fries that were out of this world. Matt won't eat many b/c he is avoiding starchy foods but I thought they were great and other than being a starchy food, were completely healthy. Here is the recipe:

I used 6 yukon potatoes, peeled and sliced into large chunks (large fry sized)
I placed all the potatoes in a bowl and drizzled a generous helping of extra virgin olive oil (maybe 1/3 cup)
I sprinkled approximately 1 tsp. black pepper and maybe 2 T. SEA SALT (the type of salt makes a big difference. Sea Salt is delicious!). Then, I took two stems of fresh rosemary and pulled the leaves off and gave them a rough chop. I lightly tossed all these together until the potatoes were well coated. I lay them in a single layer on a cookie sheet and cooked them for about 45 minutes at 375 degrees. They were so good. Very soft with a little crunch on the edges. Also, b/c I used olive oil and only salt, pepper, and rosemary for seasoning, they were healthy too!! Oh, and this is optional, but after I removed the fries from the oven, I did lightly sprinkle them with just a few teaspoons of freshly ground parmesan cheese. These would also be great with any italian dish. Anyway, hope you like them. I know I will make them again.

    Tell Matt that God made potatoes and corn, etc. as perfect, unadulterated food. We need SOME starch.
