potater fries

Posted by ernie on March 1, 2008

well it’s been a couple of days so i guess it’s time to update. a lot has happened between myself and food, though most of it was not interesting. tuesday i was working all day, so it was tomato soup to hold me over. then it was a wawa sandwich on the way home. wednesday was kind of interesting. i used one of the remaining tuna steaks to make a sammwich…almost like a tuna steak burger.

here, look:


tasty, though a bit too heavy to be served and eaten like this. there is a 3-second spread i made to go along with it. it was just some mayo with garlic and a little lemon juice. a nice touch to moisten up the palette with the tuna.

wednesday night was more work, which means more wawa sammich on the way home. it was the same sammich as the night before. as far as wawa sammiches go, it was quite good. let me give you the “recipe.”

wawa sammich v2

  • grilled chicken breast
  • kaiser roll
  • honey mustard
  • lettuce
  • tomato
  • onion
  • pickle
  • salt
  • pepper
  • oregano

go to their digital sammich ordering station and press all of these things. then they will handle you a little bundle of sammich and you will eat it. or if you have more time and energy you will make a meal for yourself. sometimes i just need to put something in the ol’ food gut.

by the way, i call it “v2” (version 2) because this is in fact not my first “go-to” wawa sammich. you’ll see that one soon i’m sure. i won’t give away the details, but it involves sliced deli meats instead, and sometimes bacon.

thursday was moderately more interesting. i worked in the morning/afternoon so i got home in time to actually cook something. unfortunately, nothing was ready to be cooked save for some potaters. no hash browns, no mashed, this time it’s fries. and instead of frying, let’s do a little baking.

oven fries

  • 3 medium to large potatoes, sliced
  • healthy pinch kosher salt
  • 2 to 3 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • olive oil

preheat your oven to 450. slice up the fries and put ’em in a bowl. add a little bit of olive oil and all the other craps. toss to coat. dump it all onto a baking sheet and put in the over for 25-35 minutes or until toasty and crispy, tossing once in the middle.

what to go with that? more fish. this time of the canned variety. tuna?


nobody doesn’t like canned fish products

no, salmon.

smoke salmon a la canned tuna

  • 2 cans smoked salmon
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • kosher salt
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 medium to large onion, diced
mix all ingredients and eat. it may seem like a lot of mayo – and feel free to change that – but it took about that much to bring it all together and prevent it from being dry.
all mushy and tasty.
in the end, the salmon was just ok. surprised? not really. it works better as a midnight snack on a cracker than as part of a meal as a sammich. but on short notice it did just fine. the fries ended up being the highlight, although a bit too spicy. perhaps just a hair too much paprika and i should have skipped the cayenne all together.
i’ll end with a snapshot of the toasty, toasty fries waiting to fall into my mouth.

the end…or is it?
