Good bye, French fries

Au revoir, hot and salty sticks of joy. While some may think you are a mere sidekick to greasy fast food burgers everywhere, I know the truth. You’ve fancied yourself up for steakhouses and disguised yourself has homefries with my diner omlette. A shape-shifting potato siren, calling to me from every meal and every star-rating restaurant group. Boo, I say to you! You can trick me no more; it’s time for the new me to simplfy and get away from your tuberous roots and embrace your leafy green salad competition.
