Hamburger meat
Italian seasoning


goes great with homemade french fries.

Homemade French Fries

These are so yummy.

4-5 potatoes
2 TBSP. olive oil
Creole Seasoning to taste

Preheat oven to 425. Slice potatoes into 1/3 inch strips. Put strips in bowl and coat with olive oil. Spread out on cookie sheet. Coat with Creole seasoning. Put in oven for I think 20 minutes. I didn't really get an actual time because I kept pulling them out to see if they were done. You want them a few shades darker than golden brown for crunchy french fries.

Baked Potatoes

An easy "oh no it's 6:45 and we need to get this kid in bed before 7:00" meal.

Baked potatoes either nuked or actually baked in the oven for several hours. YUM!

sour cream
green onions
and chili if a certain person complains...

We do this bar style so that each person does their own toppings.
