today i tried a new-to-me restaurant for lunch. i drive by the place once a week when i go for my allergy shots and they have "veggies" in their name so i figured hey, it must be somewhat healthy right?
i walked in and the menu was definitely meat-'n-three, but i gave them the benefit of the doubt and thought surely the (actual) veggies are still ok. meat-'n-three's are like cracker barrel - the majority of the "vegetables" are really carbs - fries, mac 'n cheese, rice and gravy, pasta salad, etc. i was hoping for some 'real' veggies that perhaps hadn't been soaking in butter for 3 days.
i inquired about the "squash casserole" since i have food allergies and the owner brought out a frozen tray of "squash casserole" with the ingredient list covering more than half of the tray (i would have ran, but my legs still hurt terribly).
i'm sure you catch my drift here
needless to say there was soy in the squash casserole, but i didn't want to just walk out so i ordered the fruit, broccoli and rice, sweet potatoes, and corn. those all seem normal right? can't screw those up? ha!
typical fruit cup-fruit
you were thinking it was mac 'n cheese weren't you. i don't blame you.
"broccoli and rice"
umm. where is my broccoli? heck, where is the rice?
to make your own version: take 1 piece of broccoli and cut it up. add a spoonful or two of rice. drench in 3 gallons of nacho cheese. add mysterious ingredient to give it a brown-color.
i could see the cinnamon/spice flecks in them.
and you wonder why america is obese...
don't worry. when you all come down to run the spinx half/full marathon i won't make you eat here.
