National French Fry Day is this Monday, July 13th. Really? Does this exist? When, why, how?! You know what? Who cares! We LOVE french fries! Kinda wish National French Fry day was every day! So what are we doing to celebrate French Fries you ask? We are going to serve up a french fry bar. Here's how... Our french fry bar is going to include an assortment of fried potatoes, dips and seasonings to top the fries with. Our fries will be served in cones, cartons and buffet style. We are serving sweet potato fries, shoestring fries, crinkle fries....and some hot dogs so we don't forget to eat our protein. So that we're not only serving fried foods...we are including a couple of fresh summer salads. Tomato, mozzarella and basil plus a watermelon, feta and mint. Our key to success when entertaining is to prepare as much as possible in advance. For National French Fry day we prepared our seasonings, dips and salads in advance and stored them in Glad® containers in our refrigerator to keep everything fresh and ready to serve. To decorate our table we used bright yellow flowers and put them into empty condiment bottles as vases. To drink we served fruit punch with fun straws in glass bottles for our guests to grab after they load up on fries. Think we're ready for National French Fry day? I do! How will you be celebrating?
