Bring Back the Lunch Thread !!!!

Recommended Posts

Isn't it funny how they get pissed off at you for bringing donuts, yet they proceed to eat half a dozen each? Donuts are not a terrible breakfast if you only eat 1 or 2, and reduce the size of your lunch accordingly.

Probably they're pissed because their weak wills cannot stand the temptation.

But, at 29% of daily fat requirement per each, I think donuts are a terrible choice for breakfast. Slightly better than nothing, I suppose.

Going to a chili cookoff this afternoon sponsored by the local Harley dealership. I'm mildly scared. It's a good thing I installed those seatbelts and shock absorbers on the commode recently...

I would also suggest getting some of that quilted 4 ply TP. The thinner stuff just won't hande it.

Notes From An Inexperienced Chili Taster Named Frank:

"Recently I was honored to be selected, as an "Outstanding Famous Celebrity in Texas", to be a judge at a chilli cook-off, because no one else wanted to do it. Also the original person called in sick at the last moment, and I happened to be standing there at the judge's table asking directions to the beer wagon when the call came. I was assured by the other two judges (Native Texans) that the chilli wouldn't be all that spicy, and besides they told me I could have free beer during the tasting, so I accepted.

Here are the scorecards from the event:

Chili # 1: Mike's Maniac Mobster Chili

JUDGE ONE: A little too heavy on tomato. Amusing kick.

JUDGE TWO: Nice, smooth tomato flavor. Very mild.

FRANK: Holy smokes, what the HELL is this stuff? You could remove dried paint from your driveway with it. Took two beers to put the flames out. Hope that's the worst one. These hicks are crazy.

Chili # 2: Arthur's Afterburner Chili

JUDGE ONE: Smoky (barbecue?) with a hint of pork. Slight Jalapeno tang.

JUDGE TWO: Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be taken seriously.

FRANK: Shit! Keep this away from the children! I'm not sure what I'm supposed to taste besides pain. I had to wave off two people who wanted to give me the Heimlich maneuver. Shoved my way to the front of the beer line.

Chili # 3: Fred's Famous Burn Down the Barn Chili

JUDGE ONE: Excellent firehouse chili! Great kick. Needs more beans.

JUDGE TWO: A beanless chili, a bit salty, good use of red peppers.

FRANK: This has got to be a joke. Call the EPA, I've located a uranium spill. My nose feels like I have been snorting Drano. Everyone knows the routine by now and got out of my way so I could make it to the beer wagon. Barmaid pounded me on the back so hard to help get my breath that my backbone is now in the front part of my chest.

Chili # 4: Bubba's Black Magic

JUDGE ONE: Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing.

JUDGE TWO: Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish or other mild foods, not much of a chili.

FRANK: I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was unable to taste it. Sally, the barmaid, was standing behind me with fresh refills to save me the run.

Chili # 5: Linda's Legal Lip Remover

JUDGE ONE: Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground, adding considerable kick. Very impressive.

JUDGE TWO: Chili using shredded beef; could use more tomato. Must admit the cayenne peppers make a strong statement.

FRANK: My ears are ringing, I can't focus my eyes and my legs have gone completely limp. I farted and four people behind me needed paramedics. The contestant seemed hurt when I told her that her chili had given me brain damage. Sally saved my tongue by pouring beer directly on it.

Chili # 6: Vera's Very Vegetarian Variety

JUDGE ONE: Thin yet bold vegetarian variety chili. Good balance of spice and peppers.

JUDGE TWO: The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, and garlic. Superb.

FRANK: My intestines are now a straight pipe filled with gaseous flames. No one seems inclined to stand behind me except Sally. Sort of irritates me that one of the other judges asked me to stop screaming.

Chili # 7: Susan's Screaming Sensation Chili

JUDGE ONE: A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned peppers.

JUDGE TWO: Very Ho Hum, tastes as if the chef threw in canned chili peppers at the last moment. I should note that I am worried about Judge Number 3. He appears to be in a bit of distress.

FRANK: You could put a grenade in my mouth and pull the pin and I wouldn't feel it. I've lost the sight in one eye and the world sounds like it is made of rushing water. I can't feel my legs at all now. My clothes are covered with chili which slid unnoticed out of my mouth at some point. Thank God! At autopsy they'll know what killed me. Have decided to stop breathing, too painful, not getting any oxygen anyway.

Chili # 8: Helen's Mount Saint Chili

JUDGE ONE: A perfect ending, this is a nice blend chili, safe for all, not too bold but spicy enough to declare its existence.

JUDGE TWO: This final entry is a good, balanced chili, neither mild nor hot. Sorry to see that most of it was lost when Judge Number 3 fell and pulled the chili pot on top of himself.

FRANK: ------- (Editor's note: Judge #3 was unable to report)

No, I'm an extreme heat lover. This didn't come close to spicy in my book. My butt feels more like one of those volcanoes in HI that just slowly oozes warm stuff continuously.

They make products to help with that. Stop leakage.

Well, the junk food as been expunged from my house, and the diet has commenced. Going to be a lot of lettuce and chicken in my future. I did make a breakfast burrito this morning (Egg Beaters, bits of grilled chicken, and some veggies), and have a buffalo chicken wrap for lunch (chicken, lettuce, some hot sauce, and some low fat ranch dressing).

The best part is that MIAF is on day shifts now, so I can go the gym every night.

The hardest part will be saying goodbye to Dr. Pepper and my morning Ribwich.

When I quit drinking soda back before xmas, I put on 5lbs in about a week. I was craving for a soda more than I ever thought I would. I had the "I can stop drinking soda anytime I want" thought process. It ended up being harder than I thought. That being said, it is possible to quit.

I've done it twice before, it's not too bad. I drink green tea/Crystal Light type drinks by the gallon. It's not even soda in general, only Dr. Pepper. The first two days of not eating the usual food is always the hardest for me. After that, my appetite starts to curb, and it's not so bad. I'm still looking to make a showing in the EB.com's Biggest Loser.

Uh oh. This sudden influx of diet-induced ruffage and hot-sauce-infused chicken is not going so well. I hope MIAF bought 4-ply.

I don't know what my excuse is, no dramatic deviation in diet for me but my insides are in full riot mode and the office lavatories are equipped with sand paper, not 4-ply.
