French fries – are they really a very good deal?

DanO Dog and homemade fries!
Let's face something right off the bat. French fries are really not a very good food to eat from a health standpoint. But, just like potato chips, everyone including myself seems to be addicted to the potato. Addicted that is if said potato is boiled in oil, made into sticks or peeled thin and saturated with salt!

I wrote this shortly after stopping at a local McDonald's and buying an order of medium French fries for a cost of $2.09 that then came to $2.26 after taxes. Seriously? At 340 calories, 16 grams of fat and 44 grams of carbs, this is definitely not your standard serving of health food! (A rather expensive way to sledge hammer your heart too)!

So, rather than stop at a fast food emporium, I took a small potato, fried it in olive oil, added a DanO Dog and pigged out. Prep time was about seven minutes and the total cost was under half a buck! I also suspected that this method wasn't all that bad for me!
