Spice Up Your Frozen French Fries!

Another night of frozen french fries? Don’t let frozen french fries get you down, you can make them gourmet french fries with a little oil, and some seasoning. Tis the season to season. First of all, prepare your oven. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, place a sheet of foil…

I'm not spoiled

Maybe I need a farmer’s market friend … one who can split the spoils with me to avoid, well, spoils.

Apparently, the deals on tomatoes and potatoes have just been too great - I’m up to my ears in them and have been frantically scouring the interwebs for ways to preserve them before they go bad. Thanks to the fruits of my Internet search, I feel a lot less pressure to use the food in my house. I seriously cannot stress enough how much I HATE throwing away food!

First, I know how to preserve tomatoes, but with the temps being what they are, I just can’t muster the energy to get out the canning stuff, peel the tomatoes, pack them in jars, and process them. It gets hot in the kitchen with all that boiling! I know, I know, lame … but I discovered a new recipe from my lameness: Tomatoes Gratin! Doesn’t that sound amazing? (No, Mom, not au gratin … Google it!) Layers of sliced tomato, cheese, basil and a topping of toasted bread crumbs. I know, your mouth is watering like mine did when I saw the recipe! It’s REALLY easy to make, too.

Tomatoes Gratin


  • 4 medium to large tomatoes
  • Shredded cheese
  • 6 leaves of Basil
  • 2 pieces bread, toasted and turned into crumbs (you can use the blender for this, but do it with bread and toast the crumbs on a cookie sheet)
  • Optional: salt and pepper


  1. Preheat over to 450 (thank goodness this only takes about 20 minutes - the kitchen is gonna get hot!)
  2. Spray medium casserole dish with non-stick spray.
  3. Slice tomatoes into ½ inch slices.
  4. Layer tomatoes, cheese, and basil in casserole dish (add salt and pepper, if you wish, to each layer).
  5. Bake ten minutes
  6. Remove from oven, top with bread crumbs, return to oven.
  7. Cook 10 more minutes.
  8. Serve immediately

Also, since I have about 2 pounds of potatoes left from last week and a fridge that is already overflowing with leftovers and side dishes, I was thrilled to learn how to make frozen french fries. It’s so easy, I can’t believe I didn’t know it before.

Home-Frozen French Fries

  1. Cut potatoes into French fry-like strips.
  2. Simmer in salted water until half cooked.
  3. Drain well, then place in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  4. Stick in freezer.
  5. Once frozen solid, transfer to bag and remove as much air as possible.
  6. Store in freezer (duh!).
  7. When you’re ready to cook them, toss the fries with some oil (just pour it in the bag and shake, shake, shake!
  8. Place single layer on baking sheet and cook at 425 for 15-20 minutes. Turn occasionally, and when they’re a lovely brown, you know they are done!

So that you all know I can be pretty darn laid back. This night for dinner I made BBQ Chicken Sliders (Buns from Trader Joe’s and are freaking awesomely mega delicious), Sweet and Spicy coleslaw which we thought may have been the coolest coleslaw we have had, frozen french fries, and Miller lite, baby. This dinner was fun and laid back which I think needs to happen occasionally in order to keep a happy relationship with that y chromosome living in the same house as you ;-)


I call this the “easy peasy 5-minute dinner”

-frozen vegetable medley
-frozen french fries
-hot dog
-olive oil (optional)

Put everything in a microwaveable container. Add olive oil if you’re particularly fancy. Microwave for 3 minutes.

Perfect dinner.

I could spend hours cooking in the kitchen and not make my kids as happy as they are when I bake a box of frozen cod and French fries…

I was at the grocery store today, and as I was going through self checkout, putting my items in a plastic bag, Chris Singer came up behind me. 

Y’all don’t even know Chris. He is the last person you want seeing you use a plastic bag shoving frozen french fries into it. Colleen gets mad at him for turning her office light off when she leaves the room for a couple minutes to smoke a cigarette or make a copy at the copy machine. Hannah disliked living with him because he would always turn the air conditioner off. 

Chris saw me use a plastic bag today. And he didn’t even yell at me. The saints protected me today. He was probably silently judging me, though.

Well guys! Things have been on the mend as far as trying to feel better about how I’ve been taking care of myself. Right now, I’m trying to build a healthier relationship with food. I will say it hasn’t been easy in the least. Not eating is not healthy. Binge mode is not healthy when not eating didn’t work. Gotta find a balance. I think I have a good pattern starting though? 

We have these pretty little plates that are meant to be “accent” plates to our gigantic dinner plates (think salad plates), and I’ve been trying to only allow while also reminding myself to actually eat 3 plates (breakfast, lunch and dinner) of non-vegetables. 

Because. Let me tell you. This girl can EAT. And by eat. I mean I can power my way through half a bag of frozen french fries and not even feel full afterwards when I’m in binge mode. It’s embarrassing. But. I love carbs, as for most people, it’s my go-to comfort food. And to me a portion of chicken or steak is whatever the cut is, not actually what the weight is. That being said, I know I have my portions all wrong.

So, right now, trying my best to train myself to like and eat better foods. Hopefully going to start going to the gym this weekend.

The hardest part, honestly, is the trying to keep myself off the scale. I’m still neurotically checking my weight at least three times a day. 

I don’t know if that will change. I hope it will. 

I can do this. I can fight this. I can win. And it can be done in a healthy way.

Poutine Gravy Recipe


  • 1 package frozen french fries, cooked according to package instructions
  • 1 cup cheese curds (shredded mozzarella or monterey jack cheese will work too)

For the Gravy:

  • 4 tbsp butter
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup beef broth


  1. Melt butter over medium-low heat. Sprinkle in the pepper, whisk to combine.
  2. Slowly add in ¼ cup of flour, constantly whisking to combine. After a minute or two of whisking the mixture will be thick.
  3. Combine the broths in a measuring cup and slowly begin to pour into the flour mixture, whisking constantly, until smooth and well blended. Allow to cook several minutes until thickened.
  4. Toss together the hot french fries with cheese in an oven proof dish or skillet. Pour your desired amount of gravy on top and pop back in the oven for a minute or two to let the cheese melt even more.

#Birthday #dinner = most delicious #salad ever!

Crispy lettuce; chopped kale, cabbage, and broccoli; surimi; tomatoes; sugar snap peas and thawed frozen peas; bacon; French fries onions; diced onions and celery topped with a light blend of ranch dressing and lime juice. *drool*

I just cooked some frozen French fries in my oven on my new stainless steel cooling, cooking rack that I ordered form Amazon.  It worked well and I didn’t have to turn them over half way through cooking.


Down side - I might start eating too many French fries.
