    I was telling my daughter (12) that in Canada, just about everywhere you go that has french fries there is the option to have gravy on them.

    I said, it is so good and so obvious (provided it's good gravy) that I couldn't figure out why NO ONE here has figured out to offer it. So she said she wanted to try it. We made out own french fries - baked so not drenched in oil - and I got a bit of an high-end gravy mix and made it. She LOVED it and calls them "Canadian Chips" - lots of Canadians call them chips (both fries and chips are used interchangeably), I guess the Canadians are more British in that respect.

    But it's kind of a cool joke now with her that it's the Canadian in her - which she's VERY proud of bc it's kind of exotic down here.

    Poutine (Gravy, cheese curds, bacon bits, gravy) is beloved up there and they taste unbelievable, but it's a little much for me. You feel like you gain a pound with every bite. But I could go with the gravy every time if it's good gravy.

    Recommend y'all try it as something different. It can't be "bad" as you know.

    Gravy on fries is fairly common here (at most amusement parks and fairs, but I think some restaurants do it too), although I usually order cheddar cheese on them with garlic salt. We must be close enough to Canada to have fries with gravy but no Tim Hortons lol.

    Coffee is such a small pleasure. I am not a coffee snob, I use a Mr Coffee with a timer, so it will be ready in the morning for my daily cup (1 1/2 by measurement). We normally use a store blend/medium roast (my wife used to like Folgers, but no longer) and it is coffee...but hardly exciting. I stumbled across some bags at the store, "Barista Brothers" (which seems wrong to my senses [doesn't ending in an 'A' imply female?]).
    Yesterday morning, I made coffee and opened a bag of the new. My wife DID ask about it. I know that it is better for a small price more.
    They are often sold out, but I buy 2 bags or more when they have it.
    I'm laughing. Why aren't you?

    I meant TH for the donuts we buy the Costco size bags of Starbucks French roast (unless Costco has something else dark roast we like), we're going through the bags a lot faster since my one pot is now 3. We use an espresso pot to make coffee because we like it really strong. The drip maker wasn't cutting it. Sometimes I'll put syrup in it or use the frother from Ikea to make the milk fluffy, but it's not a necessity.

    We have a Krups single serve espresso maker, with a frother, and a grinder for fresh beans.
    I make a nice cappuccino once or twice a year. I also like it strong, but don't like the bitter that sometimes comes with using more grounds.

    I love the pictures Reno. I love them a bit too much, as I make some pork tenderloin porkchops, some side pasta and spinach salad for me and daughter. Believe it or not, that's one of her favorite meals, she'll eat the whole thing, and it'll be her 2nd spinach salad today.

    I have a kid who's loved spinach salads since age 3. I am not sure what I did to deserve that. Ex used to say "She should have other vegetables, too." I would say, maybe ideally, but just about every vitamin she could get from those is actually in the spinach, too. If one can only eat one vegetable, it should be spinach.

    Strongly disagree with your opinion. The Egg McMuffin isn't even McDonald's best breakfast sandwich. That honor clearly goes to the Sausage McMuffin with Egg.

    You can't make a half sandwich. If it's not half of a whole sandwich, it's just a small sandwich.

    I'm not a fan of English Muffins. I'd get a biscuit at McD's, a croissant at Burger King, but first and foremost a breakfast sandwich on a hot pretzel from our local gas station chain.

    Breakfast sandwich on a hot pretzel. I normally steer clear of gas station food but I would try that.

    I normally do too but they're more about MTO food than your typical Gas station hot dogs on a rolling cooker. Soft pretzels make everything better.
