Poutine for your troubles.

When I moved to Canada, I was absolutely disgusted by the idea of poutine.

Poutine is french fries with beef gravy and cheese curds. I mean, blech. It sounds gross. Now, it's not the fries and gravy part. I am from Oklahoma, and a favorite snack there is fries and gravy, but it's a cream gravy. Delightful.

G loves poutine, and over the course of the last few years, I have really started to like it. And then, I discovered the poutine at the Hero Burger next to my office. The gravy is very rich, the curds are squeaky, and the fries are always solidly cooked and crispy. I love it.

Oh, you hate it now. But you'll love it someday. Everyone does.
