GRANDMA’S FRIED POTATOES
When the Grandkids come to dinner at my
house now and then, there’s sure one
thing on which they all agree.
The kind of meat we have don’t seem to
matter very much, as long as fried
potatoes they can see.
Cause every time I ask them what they
would like to eat, my fried potatoes
always top that list.
And Brad, my youngest Grandson, informed
me on the phone, how very much my
cooking they all miss.
Cause since they haven’t eaten at my house
for a while, these fried potatoes
they don’t ever get.
He said Mom’s got my recipe and he can’t
understand, why she has never
fixed them for him yet.
And the way he threw that hint at me
was really pretty neat, cause for
them I don’t have a recipe.
And though he was quite subtle and of
course somewhat discreet, I still
got that big hint he threw at me.
So I must have them over to my house
very soon, and fix for them their
very favorite treat.
Though I too, try to stay away from fried
foods like their Mom, I can’t resist
a subtle hint that sweet.
