... but I couldn't find a good photo, so this is Pork Belly Fries. The concept of cheddar cheese on fries is beautiful, and the pictures made me salivate; but the reality, for puzzle-making, is that it's just a whole lot of yellow on yellow.

Here's the information from the National Today calendar:

National Cheddar Fries Day, on April 20, is all about stuffing your face with the best cheddar fries you can get your hands on! Since the day was created by Snuffer's Restaurant and Bar, tradition requires you to head over to their outlet and devour some scrumptious fries. Live too far away from Snuffer's? In that case, just book a table at your favorite eatery or, better yet, stay in and cook your own cheddar fries version for your loved ones. The motto of the day: Eat, eat, and repeat!

HISTORY OF NATIONAL CHEDDAR FRIES DAY

In 2016, Snuffer's Restaurant and Bar in Dallas submitted a request to celebrate a National Cheddar Fries Day. This appeal wasn't surprising at all since the eatery is quite famous for its cheddar fries made from Idaho potato and aged Wisconsin cheese. This delicious creation, however, has existed in Snuffer's since 1978 and gained them national recognition since this was an intriguing variation of the ever-so-famous cheese fries.

Hence, it wasn't a surprise when they asked for a National Cheddar Fries Day. In 2016, the first-ever National Cheddar Fries Day was celebrated where Snuffer's offered free cheddar fries to a few lucky guests as well as the chance to win free cheddar fries for a year. Before your mouth starts watering, let's look at the history of cheese fries.

Cheese fries started being produced in the U.S. around 1952 after Cheez Whiz gained popularity and soon became one of the favorite side dishes of every household. Whether for lunch or dinner, cheese fries became a fast-food item that was filling, tantalizing to the taste buds, and easy to prepare. Today, different variations of cheese fries are found all over the globe — cheddar cheese fries being one of the most famous. Other cheesy versions include mozzarella and Swiss cheese fries. Read on to find out more interesting details about the day and how you can make the most of it!

Still looking.

DJ, this is why you'll live to be 100. :-)

Although there's a good argument to be said for "At least I died of the things I enjoyed."

Donnajames

I like my fries naked with just a little salt! :-)) dj

msbonne

No, but I will look closer now.

Mischka

Is this a "Made you look" moment?

msbonne

You know best. You are after all, a fine nurse.

Is that a spot on your uniform?

Mischka

@msbonne, it would certainly be awesome, but as your nurse, I would certainly not allow you more than a small plate. We will give the rest to the murder swans for them to choke on.

Mischka

@triciab5581 - When you're right, you're right!

Mischka

RebeccaB, I haven't heard of those, but it doesn't surprise me.

msbonne

Initially I thought it was grocery bag size. THAT would be awesome.

triciab5581

It looks good (but it also looks like a heart attack waiting to happen LOL) Don't forget to take your statin after eating THAT...!

RebeccaB
