It's Wednesday, but it's also Fry Day!  Ever since founding father (and total foodie) Thomas Jefferson introduced French Fries to America in the 18th century, we have been in love with fried potatoes.  Whether they're shoestring, cross-cut, crinkle-cut, curly, or wedges, these simple spuds are always a crowd-pleaser.  They're even First Lady Michelle Obama's favorite food.  Fry up (or bake) some of these tasty taters at home with these awesome fry recipes.
