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!
