Today the Elderbeast decided we should make french fries for dinner.

(Actually, he decided this yesterday, but I already had dinner sorted for yesterday, so we deferred his inspiration to today…)

So I found a basic recipe–for oven-baked ‘fries’, since I don’t do the deep fryer thing–I sliced the potatoes (which was much quicker and easier than I anticipated). Then the Elderbeast mixed them with the oil and seasoning, and painstakingly arranged them on the baking try. We put them in the oven, let the cooking science do its thing, and ended up with a tray of pretty awesome looking fries!

It’s not the most riveting story, but I’m sharing it because it’s a rare case of everything just going right. And going damn tasty, too …
