Spicy French Fries... mmm

I got sick of catering to toddler tastebuds. After all, there aren't any toddlers in my house anymore! But somehow we had continued the "rules" of making pretty bland, boring, one ingredient foods much of the time.

A few weeks ago, I decided this had to change. So every so often, I've just been mixing it all up!

Tonight, for supper we had:

Rice (long grain brown) with black bean meatballs and sweet and sour tomato sauce

Roasted kishuim, that had been marinated in olive oil and Italian-style spices

Carrot sticks

Spicy baked fries (to make these, I sliced potatoes into strips, then tossed them with some sweet and sour tomato sauce - tomato paste mixed with apple cider vinegar, honey, spices, and thinned a drop with water - and additional cayenne pepper powder, smoked paprika, ground black pepper, garlic powder, and 1-2 T. olive oil. Bake in the oven for about 1 hour. So delish! And yes, the kids said, "spicy!" when they ate them. But they ate them. And I wasn't bored with plain potatoes. I win!)

A drop overdone, but oh so delish!

I will get my kids to eat curried something or another one day. I will. Really. If only because my friend brought over a truly outstanding curried butternut squash soup for Shabbat! (It was great having guests who helped out with food preparation!)

  1. Yum! Spicy and chips are my two favourite food words (roast comes in a good third).
