omg, these are so delicious! I used apple rings as well as pear rings and the apples tasted just like a warm apple pie. My family loved it.

I fried my kitchen counter the first time I ever used my Fry Daddy.  Cost me $3 grand for that stinkin’ chicken that night.

And all this time, I thought you were taking advantage of that kitchen you had in Lacoste!  You were just eating Le Cheerios and warming up Le Hungry Man dinners, weren’t you?  Oh the meals we could have had.  I love the stories and I love the comic.
