ordering two sandwiches instead of a sandwich with fries

May 31, 2008

There’s no picture with this post because the idea is so RADICAL that I couldn’t find an image of it. A side of fries is more like garnish sometimes anyway, and today I just decided, why not replace it with something I’d actually plan on eating? Like a second sandwich? When I ordered a grilled […]
