Stuffed Dates from Cook LocalUnResolution month…how we hardly knew ye.  Yes, that’s right, unResolution month is almost over.  There is but one post left after this one.  Ah, so many calories, so little time.

Anyway, I never meant for the “A month is four weeks, which is 28 days BUT January has 31 days so I need to find 3 more days worth of delicious but unhealthy foods” section of unResolution month to be a review of other bloggers’ ooey-gooey, delicious, and plain ol’ bad-for-you-but-still delicious recipes, but that’s how it turned out.  So why, fight it?

Okay, that was a wild digression.  I guess all I’m saying is that I’ve had a lot of time to figure out what to top french fries with to make them really perfect for unResolution  month.  I’m hoping you’ll like them, too.  Though, if not, then I hope I’ve convinced you to make cheese fries.  That’s unResolution-y enough.  Maybe add some truffle oil on top of the cheese…

Okay, focus, focus.  Now to the recipe.
