French Fries

I've been making these a lot lately, and they are absolutely delicious.

The bitties love them too.

It is still not a perfect nutritional choice, but is a better alternative to store-bought fries. It's a great snack if you are craving something with a lot of carbs.

I make them by cutting the taters with a special kitchen utensil that Mama got a long time ago. I'm not sure what it's called, but it works great.

I throw all the cut taters in a big bowl, spray on quite a bit of olive oil, add a lot of Celtic sea salt, and toss them round and round.

That's all there is to it. Well, you do gotta cook 'em. :)
Just spread them out on a stoneware, set the oven to 400 degrees, and wait...

And then enjoy!
I'm tellin' you, they are very, very good!

But you know what? I got to thinkin', they really shouldn't be called French fries.
Seein' as I am not French, and seein' as I bake 'em rather than fry 'em.

I dunno. What should they be called?
