We have been using the Ore-Ida Extra Crispy Fast Food French Fries, which are gluten free, for a few months now when I need to grab something that looks “authentic” for Sam and Luke’s occasional “Happy Meal” treat. Normally, I like to bake my own potato wedge-style fries, with the skin still on, but they do not work very well in the McDonald’s french fry sleeve!
These are NOT McDonald’s french fries!

I also wanted to share our favorite ketchup by 365 Organic which is available at Whole Foods Market. Growing up, I did not like ketchup at all and I would dip my fries in BBQ sauce instead. After trying organic ketchup a few years ago, I was surprised by how much I really liked it. In my opinion, I think organic ketchups are far superior in taste to their conventional counterparts. They have a more authentic and rich tomato flavor that does not leave a high-fructose corn syrup “feel” in your mouth. (OK, I have to sneak this in here (this is why I went several days without making a post, I got totally absorbed by an unexpected education on the food industry, it is alarming): Mike and I watched a documentary a few days ago called King Corn, and I highly recommend it! I think we all should know more about where our food comes from, especially with the growing concern over antibiotic resistant infections. It is available on NetFlix. Another great, eye-opening film is Food, Inc.)
I have purchased both the national brand organic ketchups and various store brand organic ketchups in the past and I think they all taste great. I buy several bottles of the 365 Organic at a time because the nearest Whole Foods is about 30 minutes away, but I do believe the last time I stocked up, they we’re only about $1.79/ea. (or something close to that).
