    I asked for chicharonnes at my favorite Tex Mex joint here in town. Normally, they bring out both those and chips with the salsa, but the server forgot. Anyways, I asked for it, and the lady at the next table over leaned in and said "You know those'll make you fat, right? I should know," and she patted her (rather ample) belly.
    I just shrugged and said "they keep me thin and happy, so it works for me."

    My husband took me out to dinner the other day. Now they (kids, hubby) usually complain about taking me out because I'm so difficult to feed (all I want is healthy). But my two teens were off doing something on their own and so it was just hubby and I. We went to Outback. So we get the crab appetizer. Okay, usually I can't eat anything, but that was fantastic. I could have eaten the whole thing myself. Crab, avacado, wasabi vinagrette. Anyway, so I ordered steak and sweet potato fries. My steak was pretty good, despite being a grain fed monstrosity (have you heard of the steak glue they are using for large cuts and the candy they are feeding now?)

    In comes the "warm from the oven" loaf of sugar/I mean bread that passes for an pre-appetizer. My husband proceeded to eat the entire loaf. And all the fried corn chips that were with the crab. And regular fries. And whipped cream covered ice cream over a brownie. And he complained of not feeling well.

    And the next day he said, "I don't understand why I don't have any energy. I feel so gassed all the time."

    The only thing that perturbed me was the fact they way over salted my meat (to get me to drink and eat more) and put sugar on my fries(as if sweet potatoes needed sugar). Ugh.

    Where is the sous vide beef heart I have in the fridge? Just thinking of the carb explosion, I need to eat something healthy... my home pastured eggs and heart sounds good.

    I just couldn't get over the fact peas were the ONLY veg they had! My friend had salad with her meal and it was just a pile of lettuce.
    That was what being a vegetarian was like. You'd get an iceberg lettuce salad. Maybe if you were lucky you'd get some cukes, onion and a tomato.

    The best is in the south- home of the meat and veggie plate! Awesome except veggies often include chocolate pudding, banana pudding, mac and cheese, hush puppies, macaroni salad and cottage cheese. If you are lucky you can get green beans or collards. Maybe pickled beets.

    I eat at home. But there are some good places- hell, Friday night I went to a place that served me 6 huge chunks of pork!

    I think the greatest success of our marketting-based consumer culture has been training entire generations to believe everything they say.

    Quoted for goddamn truth. It's terrifying.

    *Hint*
    When you go out always order your steak "unseasoned".
    There is enough residual seasoning on the grill from the rest of the steaks being tossed on there that there is plenty of salt on it for me every time... (I follow a low sodium diet).
    And then if you want a bit more... there is salt on the table.

    Same with all fries/sides...

    They will feed a "feed lot" steer anything they can get it to ingest that will add a pound to it's weight, they don't care it's it makes a good quality of meat/fat on the carcass or not.
    Yes and also pig farmers get salvage from bakeries and bagel shops and bread factories. They fatten up the hogs with BREAD. duh!?

    Also very common... they have to be careful though... if they feed the hogs too high a percentage of their diet of the breads/pastries or don't at least stop the feedings and finish them for a while on grain... the fat comes out really BAD. Like soft and weird. Not firm fat like a pig should have. It can be a nearly useless carcass.
    It's horrible that this stuff has been tested and written about.

    I don't mind the guys who salvage and feed off/bruised/bad produce... I mean, better that it has some use.
    But the "cooked" (read: mostly fried) kitchen waste and breads/pastries are too much.
    They argue that salvaged bread and pastries = grain.
