Veggies and Fries

I believe in balance. And to balance out all the veggies we have been getting in our CSA box,

we ate some free fries at Wendy’s. I received two $10 gift cards through the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program to try out Wendy’s new fries. I honestly don’t think I had ever eaten at Wendy’s before, and I was kind of curious. I love fries (but don’t eat them very often). I especially love fries drenched in lots and lots and lots of ketchup. Yes, there may have to be a ketchup intervention at some point…. But now on to the fries.

What I noticed first was that the fries were not salty at all. I used to LOVE salty foods, but since I cut way back on my salt consumption for health reasons, I am often turned off by the saltiness of food. I loved that the fries were not too salty.

I also used to like only very, very crunchy fries (in complete contrast to hubby who loves soggy, yes soggy, fries). These fries were not very crunchy, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked them! They tasted “real.” And hubby said that they were the best fast food fries he’s ever had (and he used to eat a LOT of fries…).

Since I  received two $10 gift cards from Wendy’s through the Tastemaker Program and I haven’t done a giveaway in forever, I’m giving the second $10 gift card away to one of my readers who would like to try the fries (or anything else) at Wendy’s. (Sorry, U.S. residents only.)

How to Enter: Just leave my a comment and let me know what type of fries you prefer: Crunchy or soggy? Salty or non-salty? Lots of ketchup? A little? None (I don’t understand you!!!)? Anything else we should know about you and your fries eating habits? Entertain us! Smile

I will randomly pick a winner on Monday, December 13, 2010 at 9:00 p.m. PST. I’ll try to dig out my old, pink hat and enlist the help of the toddler…

My “baby” doesn’t look at all like this anymore… He is growing up sooo fast!Sad smile

Be well,
