Day 18: SOLSC Slice of Life Story Challenge

Burgers and Fries

Can you smell the grease? Whenever my mom would be out-of-town or working in the evenings, she would leave my dad in charge of us. We loved it when she was gone; not that we loved that she was gone, but we loved it when dad took charge of the kitchen. Homemade burgers and french fries! My dad made the best hamburgers — better than any restaurant could offer.

This “How I Met Your Mother” video (from You Tube) is the best description ever for a hamburger. But I didn’t eat the burger in New York. I ate that burger in my kitchen, in Indiana, when I was a child and my dad was the cook.

And the fries? Lots of salt and ketchup. Not good for you, but delicious. Thanks, dad!

  1. Thank you for the HIMYM video! This is one of my favorite episodes. 🙂 I love how you celebrate a memory as simple as burgers for dinner. Beautifully done!
