You'll be happy to know there were no cans involved in tonight's dinner
although there was a jar of hamburger dills. I made burgers with Colby
Jack. Mine had no cheese. Fresh lettuce, tomato and white onion. Jo Joes,
coleslaw and melon on the side. I wasn't very hungry. I only had the
burger and a few leftover pickled beets. I guess those did come from a can
but I opened it a few days back. It was a freebie.

For everybody who's never heard of jo jo's (which included me up until
a minute ago), they're potatoes:

I'd never heard of jo jo's, either. There used to be a restaurant/diner
in west Tennessee called Jo Jo's; it was attached to an inexpensive
motel chain.

By "very Northern California", the writer must mean the part that
touches Oregon, and I question how popular they are in Oregon. My
brother has lived there for 20+ years and hasn't mentioned them.
Maybe they're popular in the high desert, but not along the coast.

Looking at recipes, I see it's supposed to be a truck stop delicacy.
I hate potatoes coated with something mysterious, but at least now I
understand the why various national chains think it's okay to serve
coated french fries. Maybe they'd taste better with ranch dressing,
but they aren't served that way and I don't like them well enough to
ask for a side of ranch. I substitute a salad if I can, and skip them
if I can't.

I used to buy them in Alameda at Albertsons/Lucky. But I made them to take
to a potluck on Cape Cod and everyone knew what they were.
