Ketchup Scoops

There’s some controversy about the origin of French Fries.  Thomas Jefferson brought the idea of potatoes fried in oil from France.  And “frenching” is a culinary term for “long-cut” as in french green beans.  Put together, these became American french fries – often eaten with ketchup. The rest of the world eats them with vinegar, pepper, olive oil, gravy, cheese, gravy, and (gag) mayonnaise. It seems everyone puts them under salt. Now you know.

    Take one plate of french fries, one bowl of blue cheese dressing, and one bowl of hot gravy. Slide a fry through the blue cheese, then through the gravy, and then down the hatch.
