Funny Story: I was looking up recipes on the internet and I ran across a cauliflower mac and cheese recipe promising to slash the calories and carbs. And I was all aawwwwwesome, I have alot of cheese I need to get rid of, and yay cauliflower instead o gluten!
I look at the recipe and see "whole wheat pasta" in the ingredients list.
So instead of using the cauliflower as a pasta substitute as I supposed, they used it to substitute the milk/bechamel sauce part.
Went to a wedding on Saturday, a waitress came round shouted my name and handed me a 'gluten free roll', I decided not to eat it, so another guy on my table asked if he could have it, to which I was more than happy to, he then put some kind of spread/marg/butter, (couldn't tell you what it was, but it was yellow(ish) onto the roll and the roll disolved into a sort of pulp on his plate, what made me laugh was that he still ate it!
I was at a divey burger bar this weekend that specifically advertised a "diet" burger with the only difference that it came with no bun. I figured it would be easier to order that than to order a regular burger and try to explain that I didnt want a bun. So it comes, neatly placed on the plate next to the toppings, which is fine, but next to the toppings were...two packages of saltines crackers.
And every single salad comes as ordered... with 2 packs of saltine crackers.
I know it's probably some sort of habitual thing the cooks or whatever do but do none of them spot the irony? I mean hell, I'd much rather eat a garlic butter crouton than a saltine cracker any time, but I deliberately request no crouton so they give me cracker? Oy.
Who eats crackers with salad anyway, even grain eaters? Seems weird to me!
We have a guy at work that just turned vegan about 6 months ago. He is usually sick 1 week out of every month on average and has some new ailment or injury it's hard to keep track. He is always making comments about what I eat like "Where's the beans in your chili" and "All that saturated fat is going to kill you." I just ignore him usually.
One day he was telling everyone he is like a Ferrari. Well maintained and highly tuned, but when he breaks down its costly. (Where do people come up with this stuff?) I told him "If you're supposed to be a Ferrari I would trade you in for a Yugo because it's more reliable."
A: "What do you *eat* for breakfast?"
B: "This morning I had bacon and eggs with mushrooms and tomatoes"
A: "Can I come and live at your house?"
Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

My friend from the East coast had never heard of crackers with salads until she moved to the Midwest. Most people crumble them up on the salad, I guess like a sub for croutons.
