the acti-fry

i am lucky. seriously. (i mean really, have you met my hubby?!) okay, but really, this post is really about my luck in winning prizes. at the nutrition conference i attended in denver, i entered to win this very cool kitchen appliance called the acti-fry. it makes french fries from 2pounds of potatoes with only 2 tablespoons of oil. and as a rd who happens to enjoy french fries, this is very cool. prize, the acti-fry, arrived at our door a few weeks later...and i was thrilled. seriously. jump up and down thrilled. (i am not kidding...i jumped up and down.) okay, back to the point. with this fabulous appliance, we decided to attempt our own french fries.


then...add 2 tablespoons of oil.

then...let the acti-fry begin.

then...30minutes later.


survey says...they were pretty good. next time: cut smaller fries. try different seasonings. add burgers. (we ate turkey just wasn't the same.) all in all...the acti-fry will see another day.
