Today, July 13, is National French Fry Day!

If text could talk, you would hear me shouting. French fries are second only to ice cream as my favorite food.

I only found out early this morning that today was the day to celebrate these golden slices of deliciousness. Needless to say, the next step was to figure out how to enjoy the tasty treats.

Thin? Thick? Curly? Cajun-battered? Texas-style? With or without ketchup? The possibilities are endless!

Belgians claim they are responsible for bestowing on the world such a fantastic fried feast. Americans, according to Fox News, consume about two-million tons of French fries per year or about 30 pounds per person!

Given the fact that my family has been watching our intake of fats and cholesterol, I'm way behind on my per capita quota. I believe I have some catching up to do.
