    I need to vent to someone and you're it, Thread.

    I just defended Southern Baptists for not being as closed minded as one might assume, but its not the Mormon side of my family that spends holiday time making fun of the Southern Baptist side.

    Don't get me wrong, there is a lot of things wrong with Mormonism, but the ones I'm related to aren't spending Christmas dinner make fun of other religions.

    So much of the horribleness of human history has been caused by people who can't just believe whatever they believe, and have to ridicule and/or convert people who believe differently.

    Just... Congratulations on being the one who is obviously right. Leave the people who are obviously wrong to their own devices and let them do whatever they want to do.

    Remind them of the time that Jesus made catty remarks about another sect of Judaism during a meal with the Apostles.

    Its my main job as husband to clean out the pantry one lunch at a time.

    It's got a lot of heart. People have mixed feelings on the end seasons, but the first few are damned solid. Give it a look!

    I don't think most shows have any need to reach 9 or more seasons.

    Tonight was the first time I've eaten fast food in probably two months.

    It was a Bacon Ultimate Cheeseburger from Jack in the Crack Box.

    Excuse me while I pass out.

    Oh and the bacon cheddar potato wedges
    They don't make those anymore
    But they were delicious in that way that gives you self loathing and heart palpitations afterward

    Basically potato wedges (thick cut chips if you're British) fried, crumbled bacon, cheddar cheese sauce, and a heaping helping of sour cream

    At my work's Christmas meal on Saturday, five people had to cancel at the last minute. The restaurant said, "Well, they cancelled too late so you'll still be charged because the meals are already being prepared." As a result, there were five extra meals between twelve of us.

    I had two starters and half an extra steak, plus a bottle of red wine. I regret nothing.

    Excuse me while I pass out.

    I super enjoy the jalapeno poppers from jack in the box but they destroy my insides.
    I eat them every time, forgetting what they do to me. A few hours later I remember. Oh, how I remember.

    The bacon ultimate cheeseburger is usually my go to at Jack in the Box. With two tacos on the side. Because I have no respect for my body.

  • SightTDWSightTDW Registered User regular
    If you aren't treating tacos like a side dish, you're doing Jack in the Box wrong.

    For the first time in months I got the bane of my existence. Half-off, end of the day apple fritters from the convenience store next to my work. Paired perfectly with shitty office coffee.

    I am dipping peanut butter cookies into my coffee. My coffee has Coffee Mate italian sweet cream in it.

    Truly this is the height of decadence.

    Also, there's like two fuckin pounds of these cookies and they taste just like nutter butters but we only paid like 1.08 for them. FOR TWO POUNDS OF COOKIES. WHAT A TIME TO BE ALIVE.

    The McRib has made it to the UK, for the first time in my memory (could be because I don't pay attention).

    All I need now is a particularly bad/good morning at work to justify McD's for lunch.

    I wouldn't have said it was rancid - more tasteless pap smothered in too much sauce.

    Tomorrow I am going to try and convince my girlfriend to come eat Haagen daas ice cream fondue.

    Even though it's going to be POSITIVELY ARCTIC 10 or so degrees C.

    I expect the molten chocolate may have an impact on the ambient temperature.

    It's been here at least twice. I remember last getting them after going out in Blackpool whilst at sixth form (13 years ago), then before then I remember cycling to the nearest McDonalds to try them after them being hyped up on the internet whilst in high school.

    Pretty sure both times they were a bizarre mix of sweet and bland.

    If it's Pete Best levels of shit I'd better get some royalty checks cut, I wrote the lyrics and vocal melodies for most of their goddamn songs.

    Hundreds of thousands of dollars would probably go a long way to easing my suffering...

    Also my tell all would be so boring oh my god. Whole chapters about how to make instant ramen and rice-a-roni taste better.

    Add cheese, sour cream, and chopped chicken to rice-a-roni, probably either the rice pilaf or one of the chicken flavors. Maybe some diced veggies if you so choose. The other day I did this with some leftover supermarket deli fried chicken, skin and all (minus the bones of course) and it was absolutely delicious.

    As for ramen, if you drain the liquid you can make some pretty damn decent buttered noodles, just remember to drain BEFORE adding the seasoning packet or they'll be a bit bland. Again, added protein and some little extra touches like sour cream (hush I like sour cream ok get off my back about it MOM) or vegetables can really liven up your instant noodle experience. If you want soupy noodles, crack an egg up in that sumbitch!

    I like to cube spam up, kinda smallish, and fry until crispy and crunchy, then toss that into ramen. Because I have no respect for my body or sodium levels.

    In all seriousness though, treat ramen or boxed rice type stuff as the FOUNDATION of a meal or another ingredient, and you can actually do some really great stuff. Same goes for mac and cheese.

    Also: hot sauce. Sriracha and Frank's are my two favorites. Good hot sauce makes even shitty bland food edible.

    My go-to method for improving ramen in university was to slice up some liver, roll the slices in flour, fry them and then add par-boiled ramen to the pan.

    Liver was only about 80 pence for two meals' worth in those days, so I was eating a meal that cost less than a pound. Good times, if incredibly salty and nutrition-suspect.

    Theres a small drive-in burger joint near my home town that does basically the McRib year round, except its bursting forth with orgasmic flavor.

    That's the main reason I love the McRib, its vaguely like my favorite fast food from home. It's like a tenth as good, but it still works for me.

    I wouldn't go that far, but I don't care much for them either.

    My Mom loves them, though.

    It's one of the few fast food things she gets all up in arms about whenever it comes back.
