Are you really defending a pork belly sandwich from Arby's?
Arby's? August, is this what you've been reduced to?
Go get one.
It amounts to a bacon fat sandwich.
The way he lets the cheese just slop off his sandwich without any regard like some sort of pre-historic barbarian is unbearable.
Went to Mrs. Chin's 20 year HS reunion about a month ago.
FB has killed all the fun of reunions. You are FB friends with people you like and know exactly what is going on in their lives. People you really don't care to talk to aren't your FB friends and it helps avoid the awkward conversations at reunions.
Never had one, but the anecdotal evidence for significant therapeutic value is compelling.
What next? Augie tells us the lobster roll from McDonald's is the best?
I'll let @8893 field this one
Tell em my bro
It ain't the best lobster roll by a long shot (for starters, it's cold, which is not my preference), but in a pinch it's a decent value, shockingly decent quality and relatively healthy as compared with the rest of the menu.
Sounds like what I said About the Arby's brisket and pork belly (except the healthy part)
Good grief. Stop the world. I want to get off.
"Shockingly decent" is a favorite term of mine. Coincidentally, my most memorable use of the term was describing RI party pizza that a good friend who is a RI native brought to us while we were on vacation in RI, after she had weathered my diatribes against the abomination for years. As a courtesy to her as my house guest, I agreed to try a piece during our pre-dinner happy hour, and I proclaimed it "shockingly decent," which her then 15 year old son immediately adopted as his favorite catch phrase.
To be clear, it was not used in comparison to actual pizza, but just to describe a fleeting bite of an appetizer used to soak up some booze.
The fast food world is changing my friend. they are stepping up their game. (except Burger King. In the 80's I loved BK. Burger King is the dregs now).
I stopped at KFC in Wethersfield for the first time in probably decades Saturday night on the way back from an afternoon Massachussets gig. They have Nashville Hot Chicken now. It also was shockingly decent.
I'm sure it was....except for the fact that it probably wasn't actually "chicken".
you mean like tofurkey or something?
I thought you went introspective earlier in the year and realized the time has come to stop eating crap. You want to squeeze a few more years outta life.
I've never had tofurkey. If I want turkey, I'll eat turkey. I don't see the need to make a fake version of something. If you want it, just eat the original.
Ive been squeezing a few more years out since I was 28. Each day is a gift. Im going to suck the marrow out of life, and for me that doesnt include quinoa and radish sandwiches.
See, that attitude surprises me. You have a young daughter. I'd much rather have fried chicken than quinoa. I guess the extra couple years I hope to gain is worth the trade off for me.
I will always do right by her.
Another great culinary post from August. However, haven't tried Arby's in decades. August...CAUTION. Guess what is is coming up in a month. That will be one sandwich I know you will NEVER touch. Prepare your self for the onslaught. I was thinking of escaping again this year. The cost for me and my son was a bit too much. Aloha to those that are going.
Since we are slightly on fast food, I remember many years ago I was in Hartford I had a Dave's Deluxe at Wendy's. Great sandwich. Sauteed onions falling out of the bun, grease, oil call it what you want dripping down your arm. Heaven. I haven't seen that sandwich since then. Called Wendy's and asked WTH. They said it was a test model and it is offered in other states. I knew it was too good to be true. Maybe it was for the best, a heart attack waiting to happen.
You shoulda made it work. Even poi which might be the 2nd worst food choice in the world ( I can't decide if it's that or vegemite, both are horrific). Have better flavor profiles than Turkey.
Don't forget it's equally horrific brother Marmite. And their turd of a cousin Bovril.
A turkey sandwich is pretty damn good.
