Ironically, according to some people, that's pretty healthy Drich. Since what you eat might be less important than when and how much. (I'm skeptical. But I can see the argument. We're omnivores, evolved to eat all kinds of crap. But not evolved to sit around stuffing our faces relentlessly.)

I've dabbled in low-grade opioids, such as prescription cough medicine and vikes. I enjoyed them very much and so I knew that if I tried the more potent stuff, the wheels would probably come off. But once they come off anyway...

Maybe you're thinking of Freddy's. I remember the burger and fries being edible... certainly better than BK or McDs, not as good as In N Out, and the custard being pretty damn tasty.

No, this is a chain I hadn't seen before. In fact, I thought it was a mom and pop place that just grew. One in Sierra.Vista, and a couple in Tucson. Better custard than Freddys. I never had Freddys burgers.

It's okay. I washed it down with copious amounts of Diet Root Beer. When you add in all the calories saved, it's quasi-healthy. I wouldn't eat it every meal, but two or three times a day.....

Culver's is a big chain in the midwest. Great custard and average food. I think they have over 700 locations.

Oh, that Meals On Wheels stuff is good. Had energy and felt great this morning until all that sugar-laden stuff arrived: guava pastry, yeast rolls, rum-raisin bread pudding, orange juice. Now its sugar jags and dozing off!

Making Bean Soup today.

Considering mashed potato mix but can't add the requested milk, so not sure what to do.

Grilled cheese for breakfast.
Two slices low salt Swiss, a handful of shredded mozzarella, two slices of Italian Roast Beef, a slice of fresh mozzarella , a dollop(?) of Smokey BBQ sauce, on sourdough rye cooked to golden perfection. Ranger pudding on the side.
If only my mind was as easily satisfied as my stomach.

I try to save a few pennies making soup and I fall so hard I bang up my already screwed up knee and have to call the fire department to get me off the floor.

now i'll be out the cost of some pain pills and the ambulance run, so much for saving money!!
