137.4…Baked French Fries
Thursday night’s dinner at Love Boat Sushi for my friend Dina’s birthday was epic.
Fabulous wine and gorgeously presented sushi were in abundance!
The restaurant presented Dina with a large plate of fried ice cream which we all shared.
Love Boat Sushi always impresses me. The prices are pretty reasonable. The quality and presentation of the sushi is top notch!
Breakfast yesterday morning was a waffle with homemade peanut butter and watermelon.
I took the kids to school and went to Cardio Muscle class. After class I came home to get some stuff done around the house. In the middle of it, I received a call from the school nurse that my daughter fell and split her chin open. I raced to the school, picked her up and took her to the ER. She was so brave and so cooperative! The doctor said he could fix it with a derma bond glue instead of stitches. Yeah for everyone!
Since she had missed lunch at school, we stopped by Nordstrom’s E Bar for a quick bite to eat. I had a tuna sandwich and an iced tea.
We went to pick up my son from school and then to a birthday party for my daughter’s school friend. Even after all that, she was not about to miss a party!
By the time I got home I was exhausted. I think the adrenaline rush had worn off and I was ready to crash. But dinner still had to be made. Fortunately it was a meal I was excited about: Sloppy Joes and Baked French Fries!
Baked French Fries (Serves 1)
- 1 large baking potato
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Cut potato into wedges. Mix olive oil, paprika, garlic powder, chili powder and onion powder together. Coat potatoes with oil/spice mixture and place on a baking sheet.
- Bake for 30 minutes in preheated oven turning once.
You can obviously double, triple, etc. depending on how many people you want to serve. These fries taste great with the Sloppy Joes I made. This is my favorite Sloppy Joe recipe ever. I will be posting it later in the week.
Breakfast this morning was egg beaters on a toasted English muffin with shredded cheddar cheese and watermelon.
I took my son to his tennis lesson, went to spin class and came home for lunch. I ate the rest of the Greek Salad with a salami sandwich on rye bread.
After lunch I took both kids to an activity and came home. Tonight we are going to a friend’s birthday party. It is a Bollywood theme. I really don’t have an appropriate costume but I’ll do my best. What I’d really like to wear was the costume Maria Menounos wore in Dancing with the Stars.
Oh well. I don’t have anything like that in my closet. :)
Have you ever been to a Bollywood theme party?
Do you make homemade French fries?
