I love lists. I love making them, reading them and using them. I particularly love lists which are unusual.

This one came with sour cream, onion, and bacon on top.

This was easy enough since I’ve lived in Canada for a couple of years now. The fries+gravy+cheese curds combo is greasy and delicious, but it isn’t something I find myself craving too often.Β If you’re visiting the country though, it would be a shame if you didn’t give it a try! Bring napkins.
