National French Fry Day (July 13) is a holiday that most of us will likely avoid. Like we need to have a whole day to remind us of the guilt associated with eating fries? This year, CravOn™ Never Fried French Fries is inviting everyone to celebrate National French Fry way the guilt-free, healthy way -- with their yummy baked fries. We received a coupon and gift card to try CravOn fries and it's hard to believe they aren't fried! Just make sure you cook it the way it says on the instructions, and you will end up with unbelievably crispy, golden, salty fries. There are 4 varieties -- Ripple Cut, Steak Cut, Diamond Cut, and Diced -- available in your local grocer's freezer. They are absolutely delicious. We love fries just as much as anyone, so it's good to know that CravOn helps you satisfy your fry craving with a bit less fat.
To celebrate National French Fry Day, CravOn invited me to play with my food create some fry art. Naturally I accepted, because I don't have to feel guilty about making mistakes and feeding the mistakes to the kids! I decided to combine my love of soccer with my love of fries. Unless you're living under a rock, you probably know that the World Cup is being held in Brazil, and the Brazilians are among the favorites to win the tournament. One of my favorite Brazilian football players is David Luiz, who is known for his brilliant defending, his tackles, his fouls, and his mop of wild, curly hair. What better way to immortalize David Luiz than with curly french fries?
Fortunately for my project, Alfie's first tomato of the season happened to be a bright red, round, fat tomato with a peculiar appendage that looks just like a nose.
I used toothpicks to stick CravOn Ripple Cut Fries all over the tomato to form the hair. I used another fry for David Luiz's mouth, and two raisins for his eyes. That "third eye" you see in the center is actually the green tomato leaf top!
I think the resemblance is remarkable, don't you?! Tomato David Luiz was almost too cute to eat! ALMOST. Once I gave the go-ahead, the kids attacked David Luiz with the same ferocity he uses to defend his goal. The sweet tomato was the perfect counterpoint to the salty fries. What a yummy way to celebrate the World Cup and French Fry Day!
