An important holiday for sure.
TODAY IS NATIONAL FRENCH FRY DAY AND NATIONAL BEANS ‘N FRANKS DAY!
Beanie Weenie, whatever. You take a frank of some sort, mix it in with some baked beans. Our guess is that someone needed to make a dinner out of two convenient, long-lasting foods. Chop up some hot dog and throw it in beans. Boom. There’s even fiber in it, so it’s good for you, right?
But there’s a more important thing to talk about today: French Fries.
French Fries are the epitome of the beige food. Ultimately tasty, uniquely made in so many different places, undeniably addictive, and most definitely not good for you in large quantities. In no particular order, we want to salute the following places for their excellent French Fries. Please keep doing what you’re doing:
- Annie’s Parlour: best-fries-with-a-milkshake fries
- Victory 44: unbelievable loaded bacon fries
- Red Cow: is-this-better-than-the-burger-I’m-eating? fries
- Holy Land: french fries with Leanne sauce
- Meritage: French French Fries
- Hi-Lo Diner: Krinkle-Cut perfection
- The Rabbit Hole: The Harold And Kumar Poutine
- Cafe Orleans in Disneyland: Pomme Frites
- The Hat: Chili Fries
And many, MANY others. Those are just the first that come to mind. Today we celebrated by picking up a snack at Five Guys. We’ve found among our friends that Five Guys’ fries are polarizing. Some friends say that the reason they give you so many in the bag is because they have to get rid of them, since they’re so bad. Those are people you shouldn’t spend too much time around. Five Guys’ fries are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, fresh and hot, and best covered in cajun spices.
Thanks for the fries!
Tomorrow is National Grand Marnier Day and National Mac and Cheese Day.
