Well, my posting once a week New Year's Resolution isn't going very well.. I've spent the entire week on the couch with sick kids, with Bubble Guppies on repeat. Have you ever noticed the things on that show that are underwater? Like.. hair dryers for instance.. what are they teaching our kids these days? Just kidding. Lets just say it was a bad week for Dan to be gone, and my in-laws to leave to Mexico for two months.. I had no back-up!

Today we needed a much needed break from the couch and television and numerous kid cartoons we've been watching, so after a rare nap for both kids that happened at the same time we went outside and played. Maely has the horrible cold still and didn't want to be outside too long, but Maddox had a blast! The best part? The weather was absolutely gorgeous!

After our little play outside I made us some curly fries using my vegetable spiral cutter that I bought a couple months ago and haven't used yet! Interested? Click here to see it!

Even Dan had to try out the spiralizer and cut one of the potatoes for me.. I can definitely see myself using this neat contraption a lot in the future! Was an awesome and super affordable purchase!

Home-made Curly Fries
by Renee Pihowich
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Keywords: bake snack side potato

Ingredients (serves 4)
  • 2 large white potatoes, peeled
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 tbsp cajun seasoning, or seasoning salt
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Spiralize both potatoes, using the blade with the smaller triangles.
Using scissors or a knife cut the potato "strings" into smaller bite-sized fries.
Add to a bowl and add the oil and seasonings you prefer. Toss to coat.
Spread out over two parchment-lined baking sheets. You will need to use two as you do not want to overcrowd potatoes.
Place trays in oven and bake for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven, flip fries as best as you can removing any fries that have already crisped up. Swap trays before returning to oven so tray that was originally on the top is now in the middle and vice versa.
Bake for another 8-10 minutes.
Remove trays and serve hot.
