    Burger King

    But the meals are all the same! (Whopper value meal) I clicked through expecting to see meals to fit the theme, like a DGAF meal might contain three orders of fries and a large chocolate shake, while a Blue meal might be a side salad with the dressing on the side.
  2. Imagine growing up in a family where in a typical meal everyone is having burgers and fries, except for you, the fat person, who is given a bunless hamburger patty with sliced tomatoes and cottage cheese. Multiply this experience times a few thousand. You're probably not going to run out and get cottage cheese for a tasty snack once you're an adult. I actually like cottage cheese, but it must be full-fat. I like it with Trader Joe's Everything but the Bagel seasoning, or with dill and celery seed.
  3. I bought some of the pancake bread yesterday after the enthusiastic review here - It is yummy. I don't think it tastes like pancakes, but it is a good excuse to eat cake for breakfast.
  4. Ham and cheese on a pumpkin chocolate chip bagel is quite possibly the most goyische thing ever (not that there's anything wrong with that!)
  5. If you went to an IHOP in Florida, you certainly did not have maple syrup. They have "maple-flavored" syrup which is mostly corn syrup with fake maple flavor, which tastes nothing at all like maple syrup. I hope you someday get to try the real deal, it is delicious.
  6. The "SNAP challenge" has a (to me) very distasteful moralistic tone, like somebody living on a food stamp budget for a week can show off how frugal they are, and yet how wonderful and nutritious meals they make, and so why can't "those people" be satisfied with the pittance they get. A one-meal $5 challenge seems more lighthearted and frivolous to me, more in the spirit of other food challenges or cook-offs we've had all along here on eG. As I said earlier, constraints can lead to creativity. If the $5 challenge doesn't float your boat, how about making a sandwich with the coolest acronym? (A couple of weeks ago I made a sandwich with turkey, avocado, bacon, lettuce, and tomato - and realized that if I'd managed to put an egg on it, I would have made a TABLET.)

    $5 Meal Challenge

    I think as a thing to do for fun it's okay. Constraints can lead to creativity. Maybe the challenge should be what's the best meal you can make for $5 - or to make it more relevant to places with differing costs of living, how about the best meal you can make for the local price of a Big Mac?

    $5 Meal Challenge

    I made dinner for 4 last night - lentil soup, and spinach and feta crescent rolls. All stuff I had on hand, but half a bag of lentils - $0.50, a carrot, an onion, and a stick of celery - $0.25, maybe? Big ticket item a can of Pillsbury crescent rolls - $1.25. About half a cup of thawed frozen spinach - $0.25 2 oz. feta cheese $0.75, 2 oz. cream cheese $0.50. So $3.50 for a meal which was by no means fancy but kept body and soul together, and there's still a bowl of soup and 1 crescent roll left over for me to have for lunch.
  9. What's funny about this is that behind the "Wooster" sauce I think I see a bottle of what I've often heard called "Rooster" sauce - Sriracha (one brand has a picture of a rooster on the label.)
  10. Here in South Florida, I do have air conditioning but it can be crazy expensive and it freezes solid if it gets overused in high heat and humidity. Sad to say, when the heat's really killing me, the kitchen appliance I use most is the telephone, to make reservations or order delivery. (On the other hand, it's a balmy 75 out now and I just came in from the pool, so for February I'm not complaining.)
  11. I think it's a hat telling you that you've been sorted into Caffeinedor!
  12. Is that the one in the Bellagio in Las Vegas? I've eaten some killer pastries while looking at that fountain.
  13. I tried them. I went at 11:30 am so they needed to make them fresh. On their own, they were not bad as fast food fries go. A little thicker than McDonalds. The "nacho spice" they were sprinkled with tasted salty and sweet but not really spicy. Sort of like Lawry's Seasoned Salt. The "cheez" dipping sauce is precisely the sauce that goes on their nachos. I also tried a tray of the "supreme" fries, covered with cheez, taco meat, sour cream and tomatoes. The fries are less robust than a tortilla chip when it comes to supporting all that stuff - I was able to pick one or two off the top, but the whole thing subsided fairly quickly into an undifferentiated goo that needed to be eaten with a spork. For my preference, the best was the plain fries dipped in Fire sauce.
  14. Or like the ads that say "Made with 100 percent natural ingredients!" That's right folks, no ghostly, angelic, undead, or otherwise supernatural ingredients were used in making this product.
  15. Re: the list of medicines - I wonder what happens if you take "Epson Salt" - does it refill your paper tray?
