Monday calls for carbs smothered in gravy.

Don’t you think?

If not, this post will explode in 3, 2, 1………..

I’m KIDDING. Maybe. Aren’t crispy french fries, ginger curry gravy, and cheese curds in the “Case-of-Emergency-I-want-punch-a-Puppy” Monday survival box? I feel like firefighters have it all wrong.

So, whether you are busting down the front door Koolaid dude style because that bitch of a snooze button got you again. Or, if you are dropping the kiddos off at daycare camp, your Monday sanctuary should come on a giant platter. With that, I offer you: Ginger Curry Poutine. If there was ever a Poutine not to miss this would be it.

Not to toot my own horn (toot, toot…shite, sorry), but I make some killer homemade frites. My french fry recipe is not to be skimmed over because it’s the base of this WHOLE poutine. Mmmmmmmmmmkkkay? Once you have the crispy, perfectly salted fries ready to go, pour the ginger curry gravy all over the time. You have my permission to do it ultra commercial slow for a more dramatic feel.

Top the gravy with cheese curds and garnish with fresh chives. Immediately shove into mouth and tell Monday to take a hike. And if anyone ask for a bite, tell them, this post will self-destruct in 3, 2, 1…..
