When I read it, I just assumed
Gravy on fries is the best! I remember being 15-16 years old... during the week we (us kids) would hit the local Perkins and get fries with gravy on them. It was actually on the menu as an item. That was around the mid-seventies. I never looked back

Sauteed some onions, garlic and mushrooms in olive oil, then added a small beef roast and a can of cream of mushroom soup. Cooked it all in the pressure cooker until fork tender. The sauce/gravy was wonderful. Great over mashed potatoes. I'm full and there is enough left for another meal.

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.
