Teh Squeaky Wheel
Happy Treadmill Pig Caturday, GN!
Gonna take CorporateToolK out for a “mystery lunch” today; the establishment has a menu item I know she likes. (And -- allegedly -- a good version of it, which would make it somewhat unique ’round these here parts.)
While perusing YouTube last night, came across a quirky album I remembered from ’75 by a band named Sky King called “Secret Sauce”; here’s the title track:
Happy Caturday Pigtreadday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!
“Mystery lunch”? Featuring this fine product?
or maybe this?
Or the ever popular
Nope…none of the above. Must admit that “Luncheon Meat” sounds slightly preferable to “Potted Meat Food Product” but both of those are a big “yeah…NO!”
(However, fried SPAM’s actually pretty yummy.)
Since SneakyK might peek in here, I will only reveal that our dining destination serves neither head cheese nor tofu.
The thread pic looks all too much like me on my treadmill.
Whatever, I have lost about 13 pounds since the end of July. I cut my insulin in half then. I haven’t taken any in the last four days. We will see if today makes five. I saw my Doctor two weeks ago and he was pleased with the numbers so that was good. I had not checked with him first so I didn’t know what to expect. When I started to ask him if insulin blocked fat cells from releasing fat he was nodding his head with a little smile before I even got it out. Nice tip from Ace.
Good work, Mac! Congratulations and well done!
Thank you, Paddy. It was frustrating. Before, I lost 50 pounds in a year eating more than I have been but I have not been able to lose anything over the last year. As soon as I cut the insulin at night I saw results and it has been steady since then.
Excellent news, Mac; congratters!
HoneyLambK quite liked the Ruben sammich she had for lunch; I got husband points. (And a Philly cheesesteak sub which wasn’t completely authentic but was quite tasty.)
Nice family-owned sub shop; friendly, efficient service and reasonable prices. We’ll be going there again.
Dunno why so many places have trouble making a decent Ruben, but it has vexed my bride on more than a few occasions. Glad I stumbled onto this place via the interwebz.
Excellent! That is always a prize when you find a good local place. I wish we had a nice diner type place around here.
There was a local hamburger place near my shop in Fremont that we both loved. Huge tray of old fashioned fries and a big burger with huge piles of sliced tomatoes and slices of onions on them, along with fresh lettuce and mayo. Wonderful.
You had me all the way up to “mayo”. 😉
(Which is fine for tuna salad, chicken salad, potato salad and on turkey or BLT sammies; not a big fan of it on burgers or cold cut sandwiches. And putting it on hotdogs -- which I’ve seen folks do -- is right out.)
I would never violate a hot dog with mayo but I put it on almost all hamburgers, with lettuce, tomato, and onions, or with relish and onions. Yummy! Had two McDonalds double cheeseburgers this morning with mayo and relish. Still did without the insulin.
A Sonoran dog with mayo and salsa -- delicious!
Busy gerbils, today.
Good on you, Mac.
Congrats on teh hubby points, Fatwa. Bank’em for a rainy day.
With a few lyrical changes, this could become Feed My Weinstein and be a theme song for today’s Hollywood:
Feed my Weinstein
Meet my libido
He’s a psycho
Feed my Weinstein
Hungry for love
And it’s feeding time
I hear Hanoi Jane was not “courageous” enough to drop a dime on Weinstein. Says a lot about how long he was “fly fishing”.
I’ll pass on the Sonoran hotdog, thanks.
That clip resonated with me. I can hack decent “special sauce” or “spread” (In-N-Out’s version) along with onion, pickles, tomato and/or lettuce on a burger…but straight mayo is not to my liking (even with other stuff).
Funny how those showbiz luminaries are real fond of “speaking truth to power”, except when there’s actual risk involved…like losing work or being murdered by the head-choppers. If gun owners were as volatile as those jackasses claim we are, there’d be a lot more dead actors.
