After-school meals that will curb the hunger pain

The school year is winding down but, it doesn’t stop the constant thinking of meal planning ideas. If you have a bag of russet potato’s. You are ready to go! This minimalist recipe  has very few ingredients that should be staples in your house.  This meal/snack will sure to put a smile on the face of your hungry tween or teen after a long day of school.


This quick and easy after-school snack is just what the doctor ordered after a frustrating day.



I started off with of course cutting up those russet potatoes.  A bag at Aldi’s is pretty cheap.  It can run you under that $3.00 range.  After you cut these babies into wedges, just tun them under some cold water and rinse them off.

Next, you need to grab you a Ziploc bag because it’s time to season them up to your liking.  Place the rinsed and cleaned potato’s onto the Ziploc bag.  Because, it’s time to shake ’em up!

Now, it’s time for you to oil them up.  I use Extra Virgin Olive Oil because it’s a little on the healthier side. However, if you have Vegetable or Canola Oil in your house.  It will work just as well!

It’s time to season them up! Just add the next cast of characters on the scene is salt, pepper, season salt and Parmesan cheese. There isn’t any measurement on my part. I just eyeball it.  I have found the heavier I go especially on the cheese the tastier it becomes. Yumminess!

Get your cookie sheet out and line it up with some wax paper or aluminum foil.  After you are done shaking it all up. Dumb it all out on the cookie sheet.  You are ready to place the fries in the Preheated over of 370 degrees.
