EVERYONE’S FAVORITE FRIES

September 10, 2012

Crispy-crunchy on the outside, soft and flakey on the inside – this is what every great fry must be. The husband eagerly finishes a whole plateful. Which in my life, is the real world version of a slam dunk/touchdown/home run/ace/strike/some other sports victory analogy. Really, these are known as everyone’s favorite fries.
