That's what a hamburger's all about...
A friend of mine who used to work at Montage and now works at the In N Out Corporate office, recently sent me two gift certificates for a hamburger, fries and a coke. Last night…we drove through the In N Out drive through (in our jammies) and redeemed our gift certificates. We set up the table and watched the Dodger game while enjoying what I would call a MOST extraordinary culinary delight! (in our jammies no less!)
It had been AT LEAST three years since I’d had an In N Out burger—probably longer since I dared eat French Fries—and OH what an incredible treat it was. I MOANED in pleasure with every single “protein style” (definition: sans the bun) bite of deliciousness. Honestly, the flavor of the meat, the fresh tomatoes, the PHENOMENALLY perfectly grilled onions all wrapped in crispy (perfect!) lettuce was nearly indescribable! I ate every last bite and thoroughly enjoyed every morsel! And though I would have liked to have eaten every last one of the (fabulously flavorful) French Fries, I was able to leave half of them just so I wouldn’t feel any guilt…and I didn’t feel ANY!
Honestly, it was one of the nicest treats we’ve had in a very long time.
And FREE to boot! How much better does life get!
It will more than likely be another three years before I have another…but the memory will last a whole lot longer.
Talk about an amazingly simplepleasure.
