Anyone else want to embark on an experiment of freezing entire drinks in a paper or plastic cup? If you get it just right, it's kind of like a barely frozen solid that melts at a slow but satisfying rate. I've only tried it in a paper cup. Not sure if a plastic cup is flexible enough to leak the melt back from anywhere in the cup like a paper cup though.

If you normally drink the beverage with ice, then add the usual amount of ice before you freeze it then it will taste the same.

(Freezing beverages in glass is not recommended)

If it's pure alcohol and no other mix, probably not. But if it's a combination of things, well, I don't know. Probably depends on the drink and how you like it.

If you are talking frozen cocktails, there is a standard "brandy slush" recipe that the extended family insists on.
Basically a blend of orange juice, lemonade, sugar water (simple syrup), tea, and liquor.
The alcohol and high sugar content moves the freezing point to a bit below "standard" freezer temperature; so only a partial freeze (slush) is obtained.
Typical service is a scoop or two in a tall glass (or, honestly, a red cup - this isn't the fancy side of the family), top with soda (ginger ale, 7up, or a lemon-lime), although a number of the aunts (the self described "fun aunts") make a point of taking an extra spoonful and eating it like granita.

Some kinds of bottled alcohol might separate into other components. Like I said, it's experiment.

I know there is a "freeze distillation" technique used in the production of Eisbock style beer...

... and before the absinthe ban was lifted, the Pernod I could get would turn white in the freezer (similar to the louche clouding).

A number of my ex-brother-in-law's vodkas would have their oiliness accentuated in the freezer.

I don't recommend freezing for beer, wine, or spirits below 35%ABV. Good luck!

Wegmanís frozen thin crust Veggie pizza. I add extra red sauce on top, tonight also an extra chopped onion. Plus of course minced garlic. Perfect size for wifey and me.

Lunch was beef hot dogs (broiled) with honey Dijon mustard. Plus a chopped up avocado on the side.

Iíve been snacking mostly on nuts. I have pistachioís, almonds, and cashews. Cheating is Sea Salt Caramel Peanut Butter Swirl Ice Cream.

I still donít know how Iíve lost all this weight.

I bet I haven't eaten three Big Macs in my entire life and they all would have been prior to 1970. When they cost 49 cents. I used to go there twice a week at least when I was in high school you could get four burgers and four fries for a dollar. When they raised their prices in the late sixties I quit going and I don't think I've been there twice since then.

Well, all the big mac eating guy's story may prove, is the body can tolerate small amounts of poison without greater harm, not that it's fine with that diet.

The Big Mac is one of the few perfect foods you can eat. It's got all the major food groups in one sandwich. You got your bread, your meat, your dairy, and your veggies, all in one handheld instrument that requires no cleanup. When I think of the time the man saved by having 32,000 of them, I'm almost jealous. I'd wager he has saved well over 1,000 hours of menial food prep and cleanup. Think of the improved QOL he has with the hundreds of hours he saves every year.

Iíve had maybe a couple-three Big Macs in the last 10 years. Each one has been so dry that I could barely swallow it. Every time I think about how I remember them from 40-50 years ago, and think about getting one, Iím brought back to reality by my more recent memories.

I had my first Whopper about 1964 and it was downtown and my mother bought it for me and it was the best hamburger I ever ate in my life up to then. It was huge, way bigger than they are now and way better than they are now. When my brother was in the nursing home last year I stopped at BK and bought him one of those new fake meat Whoppers and it was $8! I couldn't believe it, that's how all the touch I am with fast food. There's a story in the news about somebody dug up a Taco Bell receipt from 10 years ago and compared it to Taco Bell prices today and they've gone up literally 300% in 10 years. Much of it in the last 2 years. People who work at Taco Bell say they can't afford to eat there.

Taco Bell recently unveiled a value menu that has attracted national news. About a dozen items under $3. I don't eat there very often, and the meal I get when I do has almost doubled in about ten years. From 5.99 to 10.99. The Bell used to give good value but they got away from it.
If you use most fast food places apps, I'd argue it cost less than a few years ago. McDonald's almost always has BOGOs for various burgers or discounts, as does Wendy's and Burger King. They take care of their loyal customers. Someone has to pay for all the comps.

Big day when you cook as much as I do, I got a new food scale today. I use one every day multiple times and the old one was getting hard to turn on and off so just to be safe I bought a new one on Amazon for half price. It's small but the accuracy checks out. I now have two scales a small one and a larger one. I weigh just about everything to make sure I'm staying under my calorie limit for the day. Drew Carey lost a lot of weight and he says nothing tastes as good as feeling thin feels. Right on..

The youngest has done exceptionally well in school of late, so I took her out to Wendy's.
The $3 keytags to get free (very small) Frosties for a year are an amazing deal (if you like frosties).

The burgers used to be better.
We did not get the 50 nuggets for $15.

A Dairy Queen breakfast bowl (salsa/chicken) and a hot fudge shake.

Now if you've never heard of DQ's fine breakfast offerings, there's a sound reason for that. The good news is that there is probably a better option just an hour or two farther along the turnpike.

Watery scrambled eggs, shredded cheese, soggy fried chicken, topped in salsa. Meh.

I did consider the "gravy" options, but they seemed even less appetizing.

The shake was mediocre, but the family said I did well getting shots at the doctor the other day and had to have a treat. Since I'm unwilling to subject myself to factory-made Dilly bars...

Looks good, Bob. I love lamb, but Mrs doesnít so I donít eat it often; usually only in restaurants, and only if itís a special (less chance of it coming from the freezer). Iím not a fan of pumpkin spice in a lot of things, but a good pumpkin soup is downright sublime; itís got not just the flavor, but also the confluence of flavor, texture, and temperature all working together to create total gastronomic delight!

Carrabbas. It may be a Ďchainí but I get a local feel. As usual, I ask wifey what sheís having, so I know what most of my meal will be. Iíd bet the under on 1/3 of her eating total. She went chicken piccata with side of fettuccine Alfredo. Peppercorn Parmesan mixed salad to start. So. Just ordered the ĎCozze en Biancoí (mussels in GARLIC white wine sauce) as my meal. Has to be a few dozen minced garlic cloves in there. When done with the mussels there is basically a bowl of garlic soup left. Did I mention there was a lot of garlic in it?

I love garlic.

I ground my own lamb and it was so lean that it would have been inedible in anything else but a sloppy sloppy joe. Pumpkin spice soup is really good in the winter and it's just sweet enough but not too sweet. I like to put croutons in it.

A "Red Rooster" breakfast. Hash browns (a bit less crunchy than perfect, but I'm trying not to be fussy), country fried steak smothered in red chili gravy, topped with two eggs over easy, and a side of wheat toast.

The red chili is more intense than I'm used to (I always have this complaint), but the food is a nice change of pace from Kansas.

I think you got confused. After you had your medical emergency and your doctor showed you pictures of food that you can eat and foods that you should never eat, you have juxtaposed them. Anything with the word gravy in it or the word Chicken Fried is to be avoided at all costs. There's more saturated fat in that meal then I eat in an entire month. Next you're going to say it's the only thing they had on the menu. Sure it was..

Calling them fried potatoes sounds more artery clogging than hash browns. A fried potato is a fried potato no matter how you try to cutcify it into something else.

I've never heard of red chili gravy. I used to order chicken fried steak regularly and it always came with white gravy, usually entirely too much white gravy. There didn't seem to be an option.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Chili gravy is basically enchilada sauce, the two are interchangeable. They have exactly the same ingredients.

I think you got confused. After you had your medical emergency and your doctor showed you pictures of food that you can eat and foods that you should never eat, you have juxtaposed them. Anything with the word gravy in it or the word Chicken Fried is to be avoided at all costs. There's more saturated fat in that meal then I eat in an entire month. Next you're going to say it's the only thing they had on the menu. Sure it was..

I had quadruple bypass in Ď92. Then for the next 30 years I ate whatever the hell I wanted to. It didnít do me any good, but Iím still here. A couple years ago I started eating less and exercising more, and what I wanted to eat changed; but I would DESTROY that breakfast. Iíd probably go to that place once a week for that particular meal.

Tuna and salmon salad open-faced sandwiches on toast with pumpkin spice soup. The smoked paprika on top is what makes it.

This seemed a bit thicker than the usual enchilada sauce I encounter. I think somebody's Abuelita was in the kitchen, fussing and making sure it was right.
Other menu items mentioned Hatch, but I don't recall if this one did.

I used to be a member of the Roadfood website, specifically so that, when traveling, I wasnít stuck at Dennyís for breakfast, Arbyís for lunch, and Olive Garden for dinner. It was great, I still have friends I met through there. But Michael Stern sold it and moved on. There is a Friends of Roadfood Facebook group, though, and when I traveled to North Carolina last spring, I found Schafferís BBQ recommended through them; if youíre traveling through Middletown, VA, it is absolutely worth a stop.

I am 57 years old and had my heart attack almost 25 years ago. I have not changed my routine at all. If I drop dead tomorrow, so be it at least I will have made a good bet on my life insurance policy.

My oldest friend had a heart attack and bypass surgery at age 42 he's still around at 75. I believe Dieter is in his early forties, Mosca sounds like he had a heart attack in his forties. What is it about the 40s, that's so young.
