Some of you may be aware that I am the happy and proud new owner of a fryer of the deeply fat variety. On the day of purchase I gently carried it home before giving it a wash and then filling it with fresh new oil. I then attempted to cook some chips in it but alas used an inferior brand of potato; an unknown variety I got cheaply in Aldi. The spuds in question make ok mash but they are a miserable failure with regard to their performance as chips. They came out soggy and not nice at all.
I have, however, learned the error of my ways and returned to Aldi wherein I have managed to acquire some potatoes of the "Golden Wonder" variety as opposed to the "White Garden Potatoes" of dubious provenance previously purchased. I plan to have a go at these tomorrow evening even though fries more than once a week are not recommended by the health brigade. the health brigade can go and **************** themselves - I'm over 50, I drink like a fish but I weigh less than 11 and a half stone and wake each morning with an erection so huge that I have to take care getting out of bed lest I pole vault out through the window.
I'll either do beefburgers or lemon marinated chicken with them. And a nice bottle of merlot.
