At the same time, even.Some friendships can be deep, and occasionally they may be vile.
Denny's link sausage manages to be crunchy and greasy at the same time. It's not nice. Deep fried sausage is a heart attack seed too far.
Sitting at my sister's bar many years ago, drinking watery beer, I got a bit hungry and decided to get a snack. I looked at the menu, even though I had been very familiar with it long before Sis bought the place. Everything on it was fried, including, bizarrely, hot dogs. The original owners of the place (who opened it in '54) sliced hot dogs down the middle and grilled 'em. For some reason. Apparently Sis saw no reason to mess with tradition. Want toast? It's grilled. So anyway, I decided to look at the regular junk food, only to find potato chips, Hostess fried pies, and so on. If you wanted anything other than a candy bar or a "beer", it was fried.
To be fair, Sis did a big lunch business, and the daily special was usually lasagna, baked ham, meatloaf and mashed taters, or something not fried. Good stuff. She's a good cook. Very efficient too. Do Not get in her way when she is cooking. Anyone who called her between 11:30 and 1:00 had better be calling to order food. One of her jobs before being a bar owner was at the local grocery store, so she knew the color code on the wire ties on bread wrappers. Bread delivery drivers trying to foist stale stuff on her got chased off, permanently.
