Greek Fries Are a Great Treat.

One tip for a successful fast is to save some foods for a treat.  Ours are fried foods.  We save fried foods for the weekend: fried zucchini, loukoumathes, shrimp... Today's lunch was Greek Fries.
  • Using a potato cutter, cut 4 potatoes, rinse them in cool water and place them in a large bowl.
  • Dust 2T of flour over the damp potatoes
  • Season with garlic powder, dried parsley and dried oregano.  But be warned, this late in lent, they smell like souvlaki! 
  • Heat oil to HOT
  • Fry the spuds
  • Drain on a paper towel, or coffee filter
  • Salt and serve
