Mr. Potato Head Discovers French Fries!



Horrors! Mr. Potato Head came head-to-head (sorry, could not resist) with an order of French fries.  I know that it is not the first time nor will it be the last time that the poor guy encounters such an awful scene!

The t-shirt, however, I think is priceless. It certainly makes you smile...and then stop and think about poor old Mr. Potato Head being turned into a french fry, especially if you are one of those whose past includes such retro toys as Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head.

Mr. Potato Head was born in 1949 and first manufactured by Hasbro in 1952. Today, he is a huge celebrity, appearing in films; seen wearing the fashions of many pop culture icons like Darth Vader (Darth Tater), The Wizard of Oz and Superman; and even showing up on his very own t-shirt!

Looking For French Fry Recipes? Add A French Fry Cookbook To Your Collection!

Of course it really came as no surprise that there are a number of cookbooks dedicated entirely to French fry recipes. 

The book shown here is French Fries by Zac Williams. It promises recipes for ordinary French fries like "Drive-in French Fries" as well as for more unusual French fries like Parmesan,  Pataje Oorlog, pesto and sweet potato fries though of course, sweet potato fries are actually quite trendy right now and fairly widely available. It even promises dessert fries called Chocolate Fries though I will admit that those don't appeal to me at all.

It sounds like this book lives up to Amazon's tagline, "new twists for a tasty favorite" but since I haven't seen this book yet myself, I've turned to the Amazon customer reviews to see if it might be a good one to add to our cookbook collections. I found largely positive reviews, with the one detractor complaining that the book did not cover enough gourmet styles of fries.  I encourage you to read the reviews for yourself if you are looking for a good French fry cookbook.

If you are looking for new ideas to try when you make home cooked fries, it sounds like this cookbook will have a number of interesting recipes for you to taste test.  Just don't make French fries a daily habit as tempting as that might be!

Happy 
French Fry Day!

Love French Fries? Celebrate Today Because It Is French Fry Day!


It’s French Fry Day!  However you eat them - be it plain or dressed - you’ll want to order up a serving of French fries in celebration today.

It is thought that the humble French fry originated in 17th century Belgium where the people fried fish but, when fishing was impossible, they replaced the fish with pieces of potatoes. Whether that is true or not, it is an interesting way to think of the beginning of one of the most tempting treats I can think of.

Because of health reasons, French fries are something that I regularly deny myself, which, of course, makes them a really special treat when I do have them!

In honour of French Fry Day then we bring you this shirt directly from the artist who created it at Zazzle. If you love French fries as much as we do, you might want to check it out.
