I'm sure we've all heard the old expression, "starving artist".

Most artists are broke most of the time, and supplies are expensive.
Artists usually have no money (or don't know how to do basic math and spend what they do have poorly).

In this video, I show a simple money saving technique; a cheap way of snacking.

Fries are great, but why spend more more on pre cut fries when doing them youself in the microwave is both faster and cheaper.

Making your own fries requires a little time (about 10 minutes) very little effort, and very, very little money (potatoes are extremely cheap)

Ingredients: Potatoes, canola oil, salt, ketchup
Tools: microwave-safe plate, knife, towel or oven mitt.

1. Get potato.
2. Wash Potato (optional: peel potato)
3. Put about a table spoon of oil on a microwave-safe plate
4. Cut the potato into ling, thin slices.
5. Put in microwave, and cook on high for 5-7 minutes
6. Take them out, flip them over.
7. Put them back in the microwave for another 1-4 minutes, or until fries are golden brown in centre.
8. Apply Ketchup
9. Eat!
