Do you ever get tired of french fries?  I do.  My son does not.  He could probably eat them at every meal until he is an old, old man.  Me, I'm always looking to make different side dishes that have nothing to do with potatoes.  Don't get me wrong, I love potatoes but I don't want them for every meal.  The other thing my son has at everyone of his meals, carrots.  Raw carrots.  You would think that after all these years he would be tired of them.  Nope.  Well, I decided to try this recipe out on him.  It combines the look of fries with his need for carrots.  
You don't have to use the multicolored ones we found.  Regular carrots work just fine.  We found these in our organic section and neither one of us had eaten purple carrots.  Needless to say, they tasted just like regular carrots, just purple.  I was hoping for a something a little more dramatic but at least they were pretty.
Try these fries with a ranch dip.  
Hope you enjoy!
Be careful cutting carrots! Always keep your fingers away from the knife blade and not curled under the knife. Dig the front of the knife in first to ensure that you have a good solid hold on the carrot.
Keep your fingers up so that even if the blade rolls, it won't nip your fingers
