Improvised picnic for Father’s Day


On the menu: Hamburger on the grill served with fries.

It’s summer, it’s nice and it’s Father’s Day. We must therefore grab the opportunity and improvise a picnic when the children come to embrace their stepfather. The gas tanks are full, that’s perfect since the picnic is eaten and prepared outside. Everyone is happy and the party is in full swing.

Home made fries


Servings: 2 potatoes per person

Preparation: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 20 minutes


2.5 lbs. Idaho Russet potato (1 kg.) preferably large size

3 l. pure Canola oil for frying (100 oz)


1 – Peel the potatoes and plunge them into cold water to prevent them from darkening.

2- Cut the potatoes into thin or medium strips (to taste).

3 – Drain the potatoes and put them in a clean towel for a few minutes to dry before dipping them in oil.

4 – Put the frying oil in the pot and heat.

5 – When the oil is hot plunge the potatoes into it and shake them so they do not stick to the bottom of the pan.

6 – The chips are ready when they begin to brown gently, and when they do not stick together.
