G loves to take the piss out of (make fun of) my American love, ok, obsession with fried food, fried food stuffed with cheese and fried food topped with even more cheese.

He just doesn’t get it and he never will. But like I said before, it’s the beard that saves him.

It is no coincidence that as I typed up this post, I misspelled fried with friend every time. This can’t be just a Freudian typo. Friend or fried, fried or friend – they are equally important in my book. They both feed the soul. Though seriously, is there any greater pleasure than sharing a plate of cheese fries with your bestie?

I didn’t think so.  

And when we were inundated, yeah inundated with jalapeños from the garden, it was only natural that two words came to my American mind:

1. Jalapeño 2. Poppers

Though in marriage, I have been told that sometimes you gotta compromise. G, of course was not overly keen (not so enthused/amused) by my deep fried idea. Mostly because when I get the fryer out, he is in charge of cleaning it. All right, fine. No deep fryer but at least cheese, fancify with fig and add bacon. See? Compromise.

Happy wife, happy life.
