Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
When Shawn was little, he loved to spend the night with Uncle Dru. Dru always made "prison fries", fancy homemade french fries, reallly. Dru weaved a yarn about learning to make these potatoes when he was in prison in St. Louis. For years, Shawn really believed Uncle Dru had been a prison cook! This recipe is a special request by Shawn and Haley as a memory of special times with Dru.
