Healthy Simpleness (Baked French Fries)

Cheers to possibly my shortest post yet. I figured I should make this one short, simple, and to the point in which it would parallel to the short and simple recipe. The french fries are a quick and easy side dish that may sound heart threatening and even fat quenching, but are not. Why is this so? Because they are baked! They are simply sliced and baked  potatoes. So unless a pure and nearly raw (yet not raw) potato is considered fattening and life threatening, then no they are not terribly bad for you!
two small or regular sized potatoes
sea salt and pepper to taste (plus a little more)
extra virgin olive oil (about 1/4 cup or more or less.. depending on size of potatoes)
pinch of cayenne red pepper
Okay, this should make about four to five servings or so. slice potatoes up to resemble thick french fries (do not peel of skin) Place them all into a BIG zip lock baggie and pour in oil to coat all fries, enough salt and pepper to assure each fry will have some and just a pinch of the cayenne red pepper. Close bag and shake untill everything is covered and dispersed evenly among fries. Let bag sit in refrigerator until ready to bake fries for about 30 to 40 min at about 350 degree fahrenheit. serve and enjoy!
