Cooking instruction summary:

For the Tex-Mex Oven Fries:Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Rinse and dry the potatoes. Cut potatoes lengthwise, without peeling them, into slices 1/2 inch thick, then cut each slice into batons about 1/4 inch wide and 3-4 inches long. Place the potatoes in a large zip top bag. Pour the melted, but cool coconut oil into the bag (if it is hot it will melt the plastic), zip the bag, and shake to coat. Arrange in a single layer on a large rimmed baking sheet (I lined mine with a parchment paper so they wouldn't stick) and sprinkle with 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon salt. Sprinkle lightly with chipotle powder or chili powder - the amount is up to you according to your heat preferences. I used about 1/8 teaspoon chipotle powder.Roast, stirring with a spatula midway through baking time, until tender and browned on the edges, about 20-30 minutes.In a bowl, mix cilantro, lime zest, and garlic. Sprinkle over warm oven fries and mix gently to coat. Season to taste with additional salt, if desired, and serve immediately.

Food Joke

On the last day of kindergarten, the children brought presents for their teacher. The florist's son gave her a box. She hook it, held it up, and said, "I bet I know what it is. Is it flowers?" "That's right!" said the boy. Then the candy store owner's son gave her his package. She shook it, held it up, and said, "I bet I know what it is. Is it a box of candy?" "That's right!" said the boy. Next the liquor store owner's son handed her his box. She shook it, held it up, and noticed that it was leaking. She touched a drop with her finger and tasted it. "I bet I know what it is. Is it wine?" "No," said the boy. She touched another drop to her tongue. "Is it Champagne?" "No," said the boy. "I give up. What is it?" The boy grinned. "A puppy!"
