Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

Cheesy Potato Fries...

46 degrees - 3:47 pm - cloudy with a slight breeze...

Yes to Friday and yes to the cheesy goodness of these oh so delicious cheesy potato fries!  You must try this easy and yummy recipe this weekend, you will not regret it!

~Cheesy Potato Fries~
4-6 potatoes
¼ cup olive oil
Salt, pepper, favorite seasoning salt
1 cup sour cream
½ cup ranch dressing
¼ cup milk
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
½ cup real bacon bits
¼ cup green onions

Cut potatoes into “steak french fries” size.  Place on foiled baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and lightly toss with tongs.  Sprinkle salts and pepper over the potatoes.  Bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes or until fork tender.

In a small bowl, mix sour cream, ranch dressing and a splash of milk.

Once the potatoes are done cooking, spread a layer of the sour cream mixture on a platter and lay hot fries on top.  Drizzle remaining sour cream mixture over fries, top that with cheese and finish off with bacon bits and green onions.

If needed, place under broiler for an extra minute or two to melt the cheese.

This recipe is very easy to alter, so don’t be afraid to.  This will just get you started… however, no matter what cheese or spices you use, you must NOT forget to add the sour cream/ranch mixture!  It makes or breaks these cheesy fries.
