Happy National French Fry Day!
Saturday, July 13 is National French Fry Day, a time to appreciate the thing of beauty that is the french fry.
The origins of the fry are lost to history.
Some say the dish came to Europe from South America along with the potato.
But Belgium and France both claim to be the first to slice a potato and fry it in oil.
No matter who invented it, Americans have embraced the fry whole-heartedly.
We eat on average 30 pounds of fries every year.
Sometimes we want them curly or crinkle cut. Sometimes we want them sprinkled with spices or loaded down with extras.
However you like your fries, be sure to celebrate National French Fy Day with a serving of your own!
