This is not McDonalds

Hello all! I hope you're having a great week. Last night I decided to try another recipe for the skinny girl book. The recipe is called guilt-free fries! These are no McDonalds fries! ;) They are baked and healthy and delicious.
It's a super simple recipe. Basically what you do is cut up all the potatoes into strips or wedgees with the skins on. I had to skin mine because they had some spots going bad on the outside.
Then you toss them with a tablespoon of olive oil and some spices. (salt, pepper, and garlic salt are what I used.)
After that you place them on a foil lined cookie sheet and bake for 30-40 min @ 425.
The result: Comfort food without all the extra calories :) I will definatley be making them again soon.
Also, I'm eating some Morning Star fake chicken strips right now .. all I can say is yum yum!
Who needs meat anyways when they make stuff that tastes just like it. Oh and I've been meat free for about 3 weeks. I'm going strong so we'll see how it goes. Hope you enjoyed the recipe.

Have a great night.
