What’s not to love about French fries?   Despite their name, they have become one of America’s  favorite foods.  The average American eats a whopping 29 pounds of deep-fried potatoes annually. 

Since today is National French Fries day, we’re sharing  a healthy recipe for Roasted Potato Wedges from the Pritikin Longevity Center & Spa. (pritikin.com). Note to fat fiends: this recipe calls for red wine vinegar instead of oil, so buyer beware.  

 After living in France, I prefer eating my French fries with Dijon mustard. You might want to grill up some healthy, chicken sausages   to go with the garlicky fries. With a Giants baseball game on TV casino online and a cold beer in hand, you can pretend you’re at the park, without the crowds or the high prices.
