Oven Baked Feta Fries.

Happy Good Friday!

Easter is my favorite holiday actually, I love it even more than Christmas and Halloween.

Something about Easter that makes me cheerful-maybe it’s because it happens around Springtime, when the snow is gone and the weather starts to warm up. A time to rejuvenate and wake up after the long slumber of winter. Although this year, that was not the case-we had SNOW this past week-insane! But I hear it is going to be close to 70 degrees by Sunday. I already know what the kiddo and me are going to wear to church. I love dressing my doll up. I got my Easter eggs all dyed yesterday and ready to go 🙂

I recently was craving feta fries and thought I’d share this recipe with you all-it’s super easy and REALLY good! I got the idea awhile ago from the feta fries that they sell at the all night Gyro eateries here in Chicago’s Greektown neighborhood. When I was single and in my 20s, this would be the very last stop before we headed home after the clubs. I didn’t care much for the gyros, but the feta fries were a MUST! It definitely is hangover food. I thought to myself this would be very easy to put together at home.
