Last week I heated (cooked) my daughter and I some breaded fish with skinny fries.
Complete freezer food yes, but a meal not too unhealthy I thought, after all we rarely eat chips and is there really that much potato in skinny fries?
I like my chips, a nice golden brown colour and nothing like the traumatic memories of mushy chips from my childhood chip pan days! No deep fat fryer here, only healthy oven chips for us.
I checked on them a few times and gave them a chef-like shake 😉to be sure they'd cook through and I can confirm they definitely cooked through. Well not so much 'cooked' through but 'scorched' through.
'Burnt' through let's say.
Do you remember in art lessons at school, when they finally let you loose on the charcoal? I honestly could have donated my fries to the local art class! I picked out the few that were just a tad over cooked and plonked them on my daughters plate. (Saving her from possible dentist treatment) And I gave myself the 'probably shouldn't be served' ones because I was far too hungry to be eating breaded fish on it's own.
As a parent we have to lead by example and I wanted to show my daughter that a somewhat blackened chip was still edible and (possibly) flavoursome...
I nearly took my filling out! I can't liken it to any other sound I've heard.
These were definitely inedible fries and the naive notion of flavoursome never even entered the kitchen!
They weren't fries, or food.
The only way I could ever sell their worth to you (Unless your an artist specialising in charcoal) would be to market them as low fat fries, diet fries.
I'm quite certain you would lose weight if those very fries were on your plate because there is no way you would have eaten them!
