Now I know a new way of cooking never before tried by mankind. “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind”. Wow that is awesome, a kind of intellectual I think, after all I copied that phrase from Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon.

That will make me a little loony.

The black french fries method
Mix them altogether. Set oven to 250C (482F). It is very important to get the temperature right. Place potato chips in oven and drop off to sleep. Wake up when you smell your oven is burning. Your kitchen should be very smokey and probably you cannot see your way around. Rush to kitchen and switch off the oven and grab the tray of smoking potato chips and dump it into the kitchen sink. Open all windows to let the acrid smell of blackened fries escape or else you will need to escape.
The black french fries should look something like this. Leave until the morning and get back to sleep. Next morning rearrange the black french fries on plate to look beautiful. Oh did I mention that you will need to clean up your kitchen?
I tried one of those black fries and remembered the Prophet Isaiah’s vision:-
“In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord, high and exalted, seated on a throne; and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphim, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another:
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord Almighty;
the whole earth is full of his glory.”
At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke.
“Woe to me!” I cried. “I am ruined! For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips, and my eyes have seen the King, the Lord Almighty.”
Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with tongs from the altar. With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.” ”
When I remembered Isaiah’s vision I thought all my sins would be taken away but the black french fries were cold and nothing happened to me. I was not taken up to heaven. So I guess I will have to pay for my sins. Lord, forgive me.
Ensure arrangement of the black french fries looks appealing and appetizing. The bright red stuff is Lumpfish Caviar. The black french fries are best served once a year on April 1st.
