My dad has had a strange obsession with fritos lately.  Yes, fritos, like the corn chip thingys.

He also has taken a liking to posting "recipes" on twitter and facebook.

Here are some of his recent posts:

"Here's a ham sandwich idea for a little variety.  Get a small bag of frito's and put on top of the sandwich.  Like a soft taco with a hard shell"

"I've had requests for more quick sandwiches.  Soft tortilla shell, 2 slices smoked turkey, 1 slice pepperjack cheese, 2 oz salsa, add fritos, wrap, enjoy"

(*Don't you like how specific he is with the 2oz of salsa...he later found out that 2oz was probably a little too much)

I suggested that he should send some of these delicious recipes to Frito lay or at the very least start a collection of the recipes to showcase different ways to eat fritos.

Currently, he's brainstorming a dessert with fritos...something resembling fried ice cream.

Sadly, me posting this blog post will probably just encourage him to come up with new ideas.  Oddly enough, he "says" he hasn't tried any of his creations...I don't know if I believe him. 

Because it's harvest season, my dad has some spare time to commit to creating these new recipes in between hauling loads of corn and soybeans to the bins.  He also has time to take pictures of himself to post onto twitter and facebook.

This was taken when he was unloading a truck.  Yes, he has on sunglasses and goggles.  It's to keep dust an stuff out of his eyes, duh.

Isn't he a gem...


  1. ohmigod, I love everything about this post including your dad and fritos!

    has he made frito pie yet?? http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2011/09/frito-chili-pie/

  2. Fritos are one of those things that are disgusting in my head. And then I eat one and I'm all OM NOM NOM.

    Frito with other stuff though? Uh, ew.
    But your dad is cool.


  3. Saw you were a new follower to my blog and decided to see what yours was all about.

    Rolling on the floor. Seriously. I just snorted.

    You dad is amazing.

  4. Hahahaha! Love it, especially the photo and facebook usage. Will he read this?
