Mar 08, 2013 French Fries The other day my wife and I went out to a mexican restaurant for lunch without the little man. He would have come, but he was sleeping. So we just left him with the grandparents. So while ordering, the waitress asked me if I wanted fries, rice or beans with my burrito. Well, since I am somewhat carb-conscious, my wife and I decided to just get the fries to go. Our son will get a small treat before dinner. This was a win-win situation. My son gets to enjoy fried food while he's young because he has an ultra fast metabolism, and his daddy can continue to still fit into his pants.
