I ordered a #2, a cheeseburger meal, with all the fixings.
The burger, I ate. The fries, we shared.
In-N-Out Burgers are part of my history. On my way back from a long day at work, late at night, traveling south on the Antelope freeway toward San Fernando Valley, that long day and that long commute received a respite at Sand Canyon when I zipped off the freeway, moved through the drive-in of the local In-N-Out and ordered a #2.
I then parked and ate the burger slowly, savoring each bite, letting my mind and soul and taste buds enjoy the experience and forgetting the kind of day I had. (BTW I'm writing these teaching experiences down at my other blog should you be curious to find out!)
The fries were eaten much slower on the last leg of my trip.
What's in the burger you ask?
First, it is made fresh as you watch.
Fresh beef patty, cheese, tomato, lettuce and a secret sauce are placed on a toasted bun. The beefsteak slice of tomato is always red, big and juicy.
Did I tell you that they peel, slice, and fry the potatoes just before they serve them?
I can't shake this habit; and whenever we're around this establishment, I'm in their grip.
The picture was taken by my husband, who still can't believe that a healthy eater like me is so hooked on IN-N-OUT burgers.
