I heard we're going to start getting them in Texas...I have never been to one so I don't get the "wonder" of it.



Paintedfire: Last night we had green beans and I put bacon fat in them for flavor...you're welcome.

I guess what I like best is that it's fresh! The french fries are cut on site from real potatoes. The burger is REAL meat...not a mixture of soy and who knows what . They have their own cows that they raise on their own farms and butcher right there. It's still fast food & high in fat, but the ingredients are more pure than you'll find anywhere else.

What we are doing to our food supply is criminal, imo, but that's a whole 'nother thread...

We lived on the east coast for 5 years. Every time we came home to visit family, that's the first place I went to eat. Fresh burgers, fresh fries, awesome milk shakes...like lilmiss'mama said, still fast food, but you don't get that icky feeling after eating it. And I can't deny I love a fast food burger...so a healthier option is great to have!

Our last apartment was walking distance to In N Out. Very bad. Especially during pregnancy.

MMMM all this talk about burgers and now I want one! The best we have here in MD is Five Guys. Soooooo bad for you but soooo tasty!!

I'm finally eating my turkey club that I was craving and it is heavenly. I used turkey bacon so its not too terribly bad. Oh and I also devoured quite a few pickles with it! Oh oh and sour cream and onion chips!

Thank you.

But guess what ladies? I'm off this stupid restricted diet!

That's right, baby! All of New York better watch out because I'm allowed to eat again.

(Imagine the dorkiest dance/sound effects possible and that's what I'm doing right here)

So, did I ease myself back in? Oh, no darlings - I went crazy just like I promised I would: Poutine.

Then I bought more pickles and ice cream. But not before the pizza. The entire small pizza.

And I'm not full yet. The cat better hide, is all I'm sayin'.

Thanks!

I ordered enough Chinese food to feed the whole block, I swear: spring rolls, sesame noodles, egg drop soup, chicken fried rice, vegetable lo mein, and sauteed string beans. I'd feel bad, but guess what? I don't!

It's a good thing I'm not superstitious because I totally didn't switch our long-distance provider.

Great news Leigh!

On the food channel I saw this place in Brooklyn that is supposed to have the best fish & chips! The owner is from England & the food looked amazing! Do you know what I'm talking about? They also fry other things...almost anything...pizza, mac & cheese, cherry pie. Your link reminded me of it.
I told DP if we ever make it to NY we have to go...he s fish n chips!

Thanks! I'm quite happy myself.

You're talking about ChipShop. They're pretty good, actually. You should absolutely check them out if you ever make it to NYC. I lived in the UK for about eight years so I love it there. In fact . . . I think I know what I'm doing tomorrow.

Today was amazing as far as food went. For breakfast I had a glass of deliciously pulpy orange juice, and a homemade breakfast burrito. For lunch I had strawberries, and a toasted bagel with cream cheese. For dinner I had pizza with some glazed pecans for dessert. YUM!

Yep that's it! I see they have rice pudding on the menu. Rice pudding is my absolute favorite food that my grandma used to make! She was Italian though so maybe hers was different. I am definitely going to have to make some...I think I may have found my first craving!

Glad I could help!

Leigh: I have been wanting Chinese food but every time I go to one of the buffets in town I get such horrible heartburn it's ridiculous. It's really quite frustrating!

I'm from Texas so I know that while there is good Chinese to be had there, I must tell you - it's nothing like New York Chinese food.

Mine was deliciously good, so I'll have some more soon in your honor.

I know. I love New York. It's home. I never really felt connected to Houston and as much as I loved London it's nothing compared to how I feel here. I may not be born-and-bred but I definitely consider myself a New Yorker at heart.

Believe it or not, all but my lunch came from my very own kitchen. The sliced eggplant is currently "sweating" on the counter in preparation for being fried.

I love to cook so the kitchen is the first room I made sure was "together" when we moved. I'm giving myself one week to completely go crazy with food following the depravity that was the last week and then I'm going to try my best to be "good," whatever that means.

Spinach, strawberry and basil salad. I may go back for more once I ship DD1 off to bed.

Breakfast: Poached egg on top of tomato sauce, goat cheese, sliced and cooked vegetables; buttered (real butter) multigrain toast; two large glasses of ice-cold, extra-pulpy (mmm! Pulp) orange juice.

Mid-morning snack: A strawberry-filled donut and a cup of hot chocolate with extra whipped cream.

We bought homemade strawberry lavender jam from the farmer's market this morning...so good.

In fact I just realized how hungry I am, think I'll go have some!
