in some jersey diners, fries with gravy are still called "disco" fries, because of their popularity back in the 70's.

last night, dw made steamed cauliflower, mashed spuds, and i grilled a garlic and parsley rubbed london broil.

also, i grilled a bunch of chicken wings, then for a midnight snack i tossed them in buffalo sauce, and ate them with celery and blue cheese. man, grilled buffalo wings are awesome!

"Disco fries".... interesting tidbit, BT.
And I can't remember the last time I ate a fried wing. I like them fried, too, it's just that grilling them is sooo much better Plus they don't shrink like when you fry them.

Katie, I may have to exactly pry this out of you. When son is at our house, I like to make a special dinner. He'd love the looks of this on a plate in front of him very homey.
