Marinated Greek Salad

Crispy Sour Cream & Onion Fries

By Wednesday, March 25, 2015

This recipe is the spawn of my popcorn addiction! That doesn’t sound very appetizing but it’s hump day so… it is what it is. My favourite popcorn flavours are completely polar opposite from my favourite chip flavours. I looove sour cream and bacon chips, and jalapeno chips. ...
