A Real Wedgie

“Between two thick slices of white bread, you’ll find a generous filling of diced beef in a tangy tomato and herb sauce, layered with cooked pasta sheets and finished with a creamy cheddar, ricotta and mayonnaise dressing.”

Wow.  Just… wow.

My friend Lilit at The Gloss has been hooking it up with some horrifying and interesting tips lately.  This one is filed under horrifying.  

Please.  Please don’t do this to a birthday cake.  It’s done nothing to you.

Such violence in the fast food industry!  Perez uploaded a video of a customer attacking a Wendy’s employee due to lack of mayo and mustard.  Yikes.

The Sins of the Foodies Redux

I’m just going to assume this wasn’t a crazed Lent-participant that sacrificed red meat and kept red wine, but… you never know.  It could have been a late night viewing of Super Size Me

The Sins of the Foodies

Sunday, March 28th, 2010


This thread on Serious Eats, where foodies confess their secret shameful eats, is fantastic. The best part is their triggers—anyone see a pattern?

When my dad, sister, and I watched Super Size Me on dvd, we craved McDonald’s so badly we went to get some! I’d never even had a quarter pounder until that night. I really don’t think Morgan Spurlock had that effect in mind.

Whenever I watch documentaries about, or read books about, how bad processed food is, it makes me seriously crave McDonald’s so bad that I usually end up going to get some.

I usually eat dinner while watching the Biggest Loser, and recently ate pizza (homemade the crust, at least) watching the new Jamie Oliver Food Revolution show. Whoops!

I curled up in bed with the new Cooking Light magazine, the NCAA basketball tournament, a cup of hot chocolate and a plate of cookies on my nightstand.

Eating an ice cream cone while riding my exercise bike? And probably watching something on Food Network at the same time.

I will sit reading a Saveur while eating a Krispy Kreme doughnut or a bag of Cheetos.

It’s usually Orange Chicken from Panda Express on Biggest Loser night.

I will enjoy a bowl of the Pebbles later while reading The Omnivore’s Dilemma or watching Food, Inc…

I almost always drive through McDonald’s on the way home from Whole Paycheck after buying organic good for you stuff.
