Oven baked fries and avocado mayo

Oven baked fries and avocado mayo

For lunch, I love doing oven baked fries if I have a little extra time. I also like to change the ever-boring (for me) and greasy mayonnaise my daughter loves so much. I decided I’d do a sauce that is the same texture as mayo but with avocado for healthy fats!
