They don’t call it French Fries here

Remember how just after 9/11/2001 a few people decided that Americans should start calling French fries “freedom fries”?  I didn’t really like the trend, but now that I’m in France I realize they don’t call it French fries here, either—and French fries were invented in Belgium, anyway!  mini_P140909_19.29Not that it really matters, anyway, until we hit a grease truck the other night and saw their menu—two kinds of burgers – regular and American.  We couldn’t help but to order one of each.  The supposed ‘regular’ hamburger featured meat, lettuce, dijon mustard and fried egg – but at least the bun was round.  The American burger, on the other hand, was on a long roll – and featured all the stuff the other one had, plus fries inside—a creation we’d never, ever, find back home.  It was so big neither Rebecca or I finished our burgers—but they were delicious and cheap.
