One Of My Favorite Things... Fry Sauce

According to Wikipedia, Fry Sauce is a regional condiment served with French Fries.  According to me, it's one of the best things ever!  Now, you may have never heard of this saucy side, as it is mainly found in Utah.  I was born and raised in California, but as a kid, my family drove to Idaho every summer, and as soon as we crossed from Nevada into Utah, we were on the look out for the first drive through that would offer this delightful dip.  It's one of my favorite condiments, and I make it whenever I make fries. So here my version... vegan of course!

Ingredients
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup Follow Your Heart Vegenaise
1 tablespoon BBQ sauce (I like to use a BBQ sauce with a little heat)

Directions
Just combine all the ingredients and mix until smooth.

Awww! So glad your giving a shout out to fry sauce! Love the stuff, especially with a touch of BBQ sauce like you have done here! :)
Great post on making a healthier and Vegan fry sauce. I love healthy fries and dip.

I lived in Utah for a year and have never heard of the stuff! Although I am not a fan of either ketchup or mayo, I'm sure this is definitely something others would enjoy. I just can't believe I've never heard of the stuff!
So it's Russian Dressing with a little BBQ. I'm down for it! Ketchup can be too strong and Russian Dressing is often too weak. Fry Sauce sounds just right.
This is the kind of thing that I make and don't even know there is actually a name for it! Of course, I don't make it exactly like that, but still - I call it the ketchup-mayonnaise dip ;)

Licorice Lemonade

I am always on the lookout for good black licorice.  It's one of those things that I like to have in my cupboards for when I need a little something sweet.  I thought up this lemonade in attempts to use up the lemons on our tree and satisfy my love of licorice.  And with the temperature here pushing 110 degrees Fahrenheit, an ice cold glass of anything, really hits the spot!

Friday Night Camp Out, Gourmet Tin Foil Dinners

We decided to go camping this past weekend on a whim.  I wanted to keep it close to home, so we set up camp in our backyard.  I wasn't feeling up to packing everything up and using a potty that wasn't my own... I've gotten really lazy in my old age... plus, my kids are young enough that I can get away with it.  I used to be quite the outdoors woman in my college years.  I almost majored in Recreational Therapy, which will come as a shock to many who know me now.  I did try to make our camp out as much like REAL camping as possible, so we lit our fire pit, set up our tent and  I made these yummy tin foil dinners, which could easily be taken and made on a REAL camp out.  The kids loved cooking them and gobbled them up!  After our tummies had their fill, we just sat around the fire, telling stories and looking up at the stars until bedtime.  I have to say, it was a great use of a Friday night!

Chive And 'Cream Cheese' Smashed Red Potatoes

It seems that on every cooking competition on TV, pureed this, and foamed that, are all the rave.  I don't get it.  All I know is, as Moto Moto the Hippo from Madagascar says, "I like 'em chunky"... at least when it comes to potatoes... and babies.  Here is one of my favorite ways to make them... potatoes, that is.  Super easy and amazingly delicious!
Ingredients 2 1/2 pounds red potatoes, washed and cubed water for boiling salt to taste 1/4 cup chopped fresh chives 4 ounces Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese
Directions 1.  Boil the potatoes in a pot of water for 10-15 minutes or until they are tender.  Check with a fork. 2.  Drain the water and mix in the 'cream cheese', and chives and stir with a large spoon, breaking up the potatoes as you mix.  You could use a potato masher, but like I said, "I like 'em chunky". 3.  Salt to taste.
