Ok. So I’m officially back to normal life over here in Colorado. I’ve been traveling so much that my sleep schedule is even all f*cked up so it’s been a little tough getting back in the swing of things. But my husband has been freaking awesome and has helped so much. I don’t talk about him too much on here, but he has been such a doll lately with cleaning the house and making food when I’m down in the dumps, that I just had to point it out. Sometimes it’s nice to have a little visual reminder of how thoughtful a person can be. And to remember to be thankful for those people. I mean, it is getting close to Thanksgiving already. Might as well be thankful for the next two months. Amirightoramiright!?
I need your advice. I recently started a podcast…but if you haven’t listened to it yet, you can listen to all three episodes here! It’s been so fun recording podcasts and even cooler hearing from you guys! It’s a little weird because I just sit in my office, talking to myself, doing extreme hand gestures while I explain things…but hey, maybe I was an only child for a reason: so I can podcast alone! This week I’ll be recording an episode talking about paleo on a budget because many people requested that. That being said, do you have any specific questions about paleo on a budget? I’ve had lots of questions I’ve already written down, but if you have any you want to ask, be sure to leave them in the comment section so I can get to them, too! I personally think this topic is extremely boring to talk about by myself, but I’m doing it for you guys! Aiiiiight?!
I’m so pumped to actually be in town this weekend (since I leave for a super quick trip to Vegas next weekend) and I’m taking full advantage of that time. I’m getting dinner with the bff tonight, coffee with another friend tomorrow, gluten free pasta dinner date night with the husband, making cake pops, babysitting a neighbors dog, then brunch with more friends. It’s going to be awesome, especially since it’s suppose to be 80’s all weekend long! I need to pull the shorts out again because these legs are getting pale reaaalll quick like. You could even say pale-OMG. Just saying. It’s just going to be so nice to be in warm weather after a rainy 4 days in Idaho last weekend. Whenever I would mention the rain on social media, someone would say “It’s sunny here in Boise!!” and I would think…COOLNOTHEREINSANDPOINT.IHATEYOU!!! But that could have been the seasonal depression talking.
Wait, can we talk about these fries for a moment? I luuuuuuurvvvv duck fat fries. Honestly, I really love anything duck and duck fat. Most of my favorite meals have revolved around the duck. It just gives any meal the best flavor. So when I was having a craving the other day, I whipped up these little skinny bites of potato joy and couldn’t have been happier with the outcome. I tend to bake any sort of potatoes I buy, but this time I was feeling naughty. If you’re sitting here thinking: “But I thought potatoes weren’t paleo and you’re frying them?! This seems like a bad idea. I hate you.” That’s fine, don’t make them and go read a little more about potatoes on the ole’ world wide web. I work out on a regular basis and starches aren’t a problem for me. So instead, make yours with sweet potatoes and bake them. No, I don’t know how you would bake them. Because that’s not how I made mine. Kloveyouxoxobye.
- Peel potatoes then use a julienne peeler to peel potatoes into small shoestring fries. Place potatoes in a bowl and cover with cold water for about 10 minutes. Then drain and pat dry with paper towels.
- Place a 2 quart dutch oven or heavy bottomed pot over medium heat and add duck fat. Use a candy thermometer to check temperature and once temperature reaches 375 degrees F, add potatoes in small batches (to keep the temperature from dropping too much) and cook for about 3-4 minutes or until potatoes become brown and crispy then use a spider strainer to remove the potatoes from oil and set on a paper towel to drain. Repeat until all the potatoes are done cooking then place in a bowl and add all the spices and toss until completely coated.
- Serve immediately.
