Chicken fried steak with spinach and onions. Totally keto bread crumbs with garlic and onion powder and a secret ingredient sweet smoked paprika to give it that deep fried look after it's cooked. Pound the steak as thin as you can. Got one left over for a sandwich tomorrow. I always dip the steak in beaten eggs and then dredge in the bread crumbs and then repeat the whole process for a thick coating.

some restaurants around here offer chicken fried steak as the meat accompaniment for your egg breakfast instead of bacon or sausage or whatever. Well, in fact Cracker Barrel is one of them [so it's nationwide?]

With sausage gravy and biscuits, you can put away a meal that will stick with you for a while ... pretty dubious in the nutrition department perhaps

I would guess that meal has lots of nutrition but also lots of sodium.

lately I've gone banana crazy - I eat one every day

my better half goes to a store where they have the best ones

I put a little vanilla frozen yogurt on top - so scrumptious

amazing to me that I've gone all these many years until now without really appreciating how great bananas are

I made a chicken fried steak sandwich with leftovers from yesterday but I forgot to take a picture so I got a picture from somewhere else that looks a lot like it. I even made homemade coleslaw like in the picture. The steak has to be pounded so it's super tender for you to make a sandwich out of it this is just perfect.

Elvis loved deep fried peanut butter, banana, and bacon sandwiches. He died sitting on the toilet trying to expel one. I love bananas too but they make me bloat up like a Thanksgiving Parade float.

I give the Chinese people credit
their food has won over millions of Americans - it really has taste
especially if you find a joint where they really know what they're doing

my faves - honey walnut shrimp, chicken with cashew nuts, mushroom chicken, General Tso chicken and orange chicken

their fried rice is great but I prefer the dishes over white rice - I'm more interested in experiencing the flavor of the main dish

I'm not so interested or trusting of them when it comes to beef though - what I've seen of their beef looks tough

I'll stick with the Americans when it comes to beef

Chinese restaurants are everywhere, from Mexico City to London. Since probably the 19th century. But Chinese food as a whole isn't very healthful, and there are more healthful Asian alternatives, such as Japanese or Thai.

The Chinese food in American Chinese restaurants isn't the same as the authentic stuff (not in the Americanized hotels) in China itself, but a lot of it whether here or there is fairly unhealthful. I don't think the Chinese have to pay the same prices as we Americans do in China when in an authentic restaurant, at least that is the impression I always got.

in the very large mall near me in the food court there is a Thai and a Japanese joint
their food there is no healthier than the Chinese food - it's very obvious from looking at it
the Thai joint is so very similar to the Chinese joint - it's hard to tell the difference

but if you go looking for healthy Thai or Japanese food I will grant you that it's prolly pretty easy to find - more so Japanese than Thai

anyway, I try to eat healthy when we cook at home

when I'm eating out - not that often - I let that slide - you gotta have some fun out of life


your point made me curious - so I googled:


average lifespan in China - 78.21 years

average lifespan in Japan - 84.95 years - but -

average lifespan in Hong Kong - 85.83 years - per the search Hong Kong has the highest life expectancy - it is a special administrative region of China

average lifespan in Thailand - 78.72 years - almost the same as China

average lifespan in U.S. - 76.33 years

Puerto Rican Chinese fast food/takeout is its weird own mix of Americanized Chinese food, american fast food, and Caribbean. And definitely the least healthy. French fries come standard as the second side(instead of the egg roll) and the a common main dish is KFC type fried chicken in addition to the common options in the US. Sweet plantains also usually an option.

So an example of a typical combo is a big piece of fried chicken, fried rice and and French fries. Dietician approved.

but the average lifespan in Puerto Rico is 80.16 years - well higher than the U.S. as a whole

go figure

of course diet isn't the only thing that influences longevity - but I would think it is a major thing

I've always read that the vast majority of Chinese food served in Chinese American restaurants they've never even heard of in China. It's all Americanized and it's mostly crap. The average Chinese eats mostly rice and vegetables they can't afford all the expensive protein that we eat here. If they get meat or fish once or twice a week they're lucky.

The trouble with longevity stats per country is the United States is a blend of a whole bunch of nationalities and most of the other countries are not. Japan is all Japanese, China is all Chinese, Puerto Rico is all Puerto Ricans. We have a couple of demographics in the United States that really screw up the numbers, I won't go into detail.

This is something nobody but me will make. It's a Romanian dish made with pulled pork and rolled oats until it's the consistency of a gruel and you stir fry it with onions and cabbage and lots of garlic. It's what they call stick to your ribs and it was delicious. I use ketchup on it and I hardly use ketchup on anything.

Two nights worth of leftovers mixed with a pound of fresh spinach leaves. The other two nights were good but this was actually the best as is often the case with leftovers.

The raspberries behind the barn are finally ripe and will be putting out for about 2 weeks. There's about a 400 sqft berry patch but I can only get to part of it because it's just all tangled in the middle. Probably thousands of berries but I don't need thousands of berries. I'll pick what I can eat that's all I need.

We always mowed rows in our raspberry bushes to get the ones in the middle, wearing longs sleeves in the summer to pick them because of the thorns. But yeah there were half a dozen people eating them. I seem to remember a much longer season than two weeks but could remember wrong.

Best salmon cakes I ever made. I used the cooked leftover salmon fillets from yesterday and put them in the food processor with green pepper, onion, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and three eggs. Then wearing disposable gloves I made three salmon patties and fried them. Got one left over for a sandwich tomorrow. I've made salmon cakes all my life and these are probably the best ones because I used actual salmon fillets and a food processor.

when we don't have anything prepared I sometimes grab a frozen dinner

today, I tried something new (for me) - El Monterey Chicken Enchiladas served over Spanish rice with suiza sauce and Monterey Jack and cheddar cheese

I was really surprised at how good it was - restaurant quality imo

beats the heck out of the old standbys - Stouffers and Marie Callender

I just looked at the box -
it has 27 grams of fat -
per google a person on a 2,000 calorie diet should have 44 to 78 grams of fat per day
I'm not on a diet but I believe I will have less than that today
it has 890 milligrams of sodium
per google a person should have less than 2300 grams of sodium per day
I believe I will be less than that today
it has 51 grams of carbs
per google a person on a 2,000 calorie diet should have between 225 and 325 grams of carbs per day
I will believe I will be less than that today

the pic on the box makes it look like a big meal - it's not as big as it looks on the box - it's smallish

anyway, I only eat something like this once in a while - I wouldn't eat it every day

and when I do eat it I eat less of other potentially problematical foods on that particular day

I don't need to diet - but even if I did - I would want to go with my first choice on some days, and on those days eat less of other foods that might be problematical

the big grocery stores have changed a lot for the better in the last 10 years or so

their selection is much more diverse

I'd be willing to bet that the big grocery store near me has over 50,000 different items - it's quite amazing

if you don't take your time to look you could miss stuff that you might really like

the grocery store near me that I'm referring to is much larger than "full size" - it's a gigantic store

and it has a pharmacy and a tremendous amount of otc pharmacy products which are very small - thousands and thousands of them

well, I was going to give you an image of round one, which was a fish breakfast ... but I got too hungry and ate it . Besides, the eggs were not sunny side up, which is kind of necessary for picture taking

what I do for breakfast [usually a once a week thing] is make plenty of stoneground grits. These go well with black beans. So here is an image of round 2, with remnants of fish on the plate, and a bottle of Matouk's in the picture too. Goes really well with black beans!

I am a fan of eating fish with the bone in, and lifting the bones out of the fish, so you get every delicious bit... as you can see. Especially with fish this size.

Fresh fish for breakfast is living like a king.



somebody else's fish and eggs for breakfast [from internet]

A new barbecue chain opened up in a spot formerly* occupied by a Subway. This is new-new, not yet on the computer map, and they're still programming the registers and getting all the appliances working right.

Good coleslaw, great pulled pork. Odd to see Texan potato chips in Pennsylvania, but hey, whatevs.
Not quite as good as I remember Gio's, but infinitely more convenient for my usual travels.


Rumor is the health inspector shut it down and they lost the franchise about 5 years back. The "restaurant area" of the gas station had been poignantly vacant since then. Looks like a completely fresh buildout, as of yesterday.

They are not chicken nuggets unless you grind the meat and press it into shapes. Yours look like chicken chunks.

I beg to differ the recipe I got these from called them chicken nuggets and they use chunks of chicken. You are talking about the fast food joints that take every part of the chicken, the beaks and the feet and their toenails and their poop chutes and grind it all up and call it a chicken nugget. Ever see how they make a hot dog? Same thing, same ingredients.

Nothing exciting.
A bowl of jasmine rice, topped with a big scoop of kimchi and a few smoked brisling sardines.

This hit the spot; apparently I need to actively remind myself that there are foods other than chocolate that can improve mood.

No No No!! You have an unreliable source with non factual information. I am the authority on chicken nuggets.

I eat at a Peruvian chicken joint near me once every couple of weeks
their charbroiled chicken has a special and unique taste due to the spices they use - and it's a great flavor
I get it with fries and cole slaw (which is not shown in the pic)
I would never ever order cole slaw anywhere else - but somehow it seems perfect with this dish
I'm gonna eat there again in a couple of days - can't wait

the pic gives an idea of about the size of what they serve - I get 2 meals out of it - too much food for one meal

because of that the price is smallish

In Vegas there was a little strip mall Peruvian chicken place on Tropicana that I would eat at occasionally. I like their chicken but I could never identify what spices they were using that were different..

Okay, I'm a little late with this, as my internet was down for about 12 hours (the best guess: a hub was knocked out by a fire caused by illegal fireworks), but here's what I had for lunch on Thursday:

Note that those are 2.4-ounce Nathan's hot dogs, and Oroweat Keto buns

Smart man, condiments mask the taste of the meat.

Don, were you trying to beat the hot dog record? I can't imagine eating 5 hot dogs.
