    Super Bowl,

    I had a pretty relaxing Sunday. I don't watch football, so I didn't do the whole party thing like a lot of people here. Maybe one of you can have me cater your party next year.

    On Tonight's Menu:

    Cheeseburger & Onion Rings - Cheeseburger with Lettuce, Tomato, Onion, Brown Mustard, Pickles on a store-bought Onion Bun and some store-bought Onion Rings(they were total crap so I only ate two of them)....

    [​IMG]

    ...and my final installment of Oldies week. This is my favorite song that you'll find on a mainstream Oldies station, a song that has a beautiful, eerie atmosphere, gorgeous harmonies, and simple, sweet lyrics. Ladies and gentlemen, its The Flamingos with "I Only Have Eyes For You":



    Feel free to talk about what you're eating or your music(if you aren't watching football).

    Hope everyone is having fun, I'll be for a little bit longer. No beer tonight, but good times to be had anyways.

    Enjoy your Madonna, sailors! :transcheer::transcheer::transcheer:

    The burger was great, I'll never buy those onion rings ever again. How hard is it to mess up onion rings? Burger King's had more flavor than these.

    Whats the good word, Frisco?

    Fun day, fun weekend. Sometimes these snowed in weekends, where its a pain in the ass to take the car anywhere, are exactly what the doctor ordered. Did a little writing this AM, then went for a long walk with the respective sweetie.

    Dinner is still up in the air, but we had an interesting breakfast. It is beyond easy to make, but it is fun. Here is a picture (Ours looked much better, but the picture is linked up to my girlfriends facebook account) Same colorful premise, though

    I went out for a little bit this afternoon, but didnt want to drive around to any parties, so Im watching the game (on mute) while the girlfriend takes a nap. Im listening to some music....

    Listened to today:

    Burger King has the worst onion rings in the world. I actually get pissed off thinking about them. A&Ws are pretty horrid too.

    Hola Chigs! That looks delicious. There is nothing better in this world than a runny egg. I'm going to have to make those pretty soon.


    Have you seen where they put the egg yolk inside of ravioli? I've been waiting for the perfect time to make it myself.

    I'm about to go grab a Whataburger, no cooking, no cleaning! Onion rings are a mysterious thing to me, especially the ones I really like, that are like shoestring thin. How in the fuck people get the batter to stay on is utterly beyond me. I gave up trying.

    Anyway, VERY cool song, one of my favorites from that time period. Atmosphere you can cut with a knife.

    Nope. The picture in my OP is a picture of the worst onion rings ever.


    And for the record, Burger King is utter garbage. I like Five Guys, Steak & Shake, even Hardees for a better burger.

    The best fast food place to get onion rings is Sonic.

    80/20, but I need to start using bison. I get lazy sometimes and just get my groceries from the crappy supermarket nearby that doesn't have bison.

    We don't have Whataburger here. I'd love to try it. I've also never had In-and-Out. :nocheer:

    I'm glad you like the song. I love when it comes on the radio and I'm driving with the windows down on a mild, clear summer night. Its one of those things that makes you appreciate living.

    Its not about money, actually. I have plenty of that, its just about me driving a few extra miles to a better supermarket.

    In and Out is amazing. After a Phish Festival a couple years ago in SoCal, we got In and Out on our way out of town. It was like 9 in the morning, but we ate it, and ate it all. Great fast food. Praise Jesus!

    I just thought I would share that story, since it had to do with Phish...I know how much you like Phish.

    I call bullshit. The fat in the burger is what makes it tasty.
