Potatoes. Potatoes. Potatoes. Potatoes. I'm so in love with potatoes, it's not even funny. I would go on for hours listing the hundreds of ways you could eat a potato. Lucky for you, I'm not going to do that, at least not now. Instead, I'd much rather share with you one of my favorite ways to eat potatoes. Fries are awesome, but toothpick fries are on a whole other level. They're super easy and quick to make.

I peeled and washed 3 Idaho potatoes, then slice them up into matchstick size. Yes, that's really the choice of word I'm using to describe how thin you should be cutting them. I added a bit of my favorite cajun seasoning and salt before placing them into a frying pan with hot vegetable oil. Let them cook for about 10 minutes, or till a golden color. That's it. I know, so complicated.

This is probably going to sound gross, but I mix sour cream and ranch for dipping sauce (that's what's on the side), since I'm not entirely a huge fan of ketchup.

Oh yea, I'm not a very knowledgable person when it comes to serving sizes, but this should serve about 3 people. I could be wrong, considering I've been eating "Family Size" labeled food in one sitting for years now.
