Pomme Frites with Dipping Sauces

What's the perfect thing to snack on during a lazy Sunday? These fantastic fries! Dino has been wanting to make them in the deep fryer, and he finally did it. WOW. They rocked! He made 2 different dipping sauces, and they were out of this world! Super crispy on the outside and tender on the inside - the perfect texture. The sauces were both great, and yes, I did dip some fries in both sauces. Yum!!
