Today's romantic tip is a simple one. UNPLUG! Spend one evening each week with the phone, computer, tv, and any other distraction, turned off. For my husband and I it is always Sunday night. Do it! You will be surprised how much closer it brings you together.
It happens a lot. It is the end of the weekend. My husband and I are both dreading the busy week ahead. So we just decide to snack on what is in the fridge and pantry, instead of making a huge meal. This usually consists of a lot of raw veggies and fruits and a big glass of wine.
This time I needed some comfort food. I of course was excited to find 3 potatoes in the pantry. French fries immediately swirled in my mind. My ultimate comfort food. Sadly I am on a strict no fried food diet right now. Never fear! I decided to make these baked garlic Parmesan fries instead. They were just as good, if not better!
Baked Garlic Parmesan Fries
3 russet potatoes
2 TBSP vegetable oil
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 TBSP garlic powder
1/2 TBSP onion powder
1/2 TBSP sea salt
1/2 TBSP parsley
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
Peel and slice your potatoes. It is important you cut them the same size so they cook at the same rate.
Rinse off and place in a large ziplock bag.
Add oil to the bag. Seal and shake to coat the potatoes.
Add in the remaining ingredients to the bag. Seal and shake until coated.
On a baking sheet or stone lined with parchment paper, place your coated potato slices.
Bake for 30 minutes, 15 minutes, then turn over for the remaining 15 minutes.
Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
