Let's Make DaltonGirl CRAZY!

I love to make DaltonGirl crazy by telling her what I eat. She pretends not to be riled up by my choices, but I think, deep down, she is. So, in the spirit of friendly competition, let's all post here after we eat somthing EXTRA un-healthful, like the time I went to Hires Big H and had a bacon cheese-burger, chili-cheese fries and a large Diet Coke. MMMMMmmmmmm. Or the fact that I just ate Panda Express with a 44 oz Mountain Dew (not diet) and then ate 9 mini-candy bars. Super YUM!!!

So, join in the fun. And please, no wagering.

Sometimes I like to get a big ol' plate of torilla chips and grate cheese on the chips kip-from-Napoleon-Dynamite style. Then I chase it with a glass of whole milk.

Other times I make a snack sampler called 'gorp' I take whatever finger snacks my wife Limpy and I have in the house and mix them together in a large bowl a la Chex Mix(R) sans butter. The latest installment of gorp included: Gummi candy--sour and regular, pretzels, Fritos(R) corn chips, jordan almonds, Welch's(R) fruit snacks, and animal crackers. I usually chase that with milk too.

I rarely participate, but my family likes to eat waffles topped with chunky blueberry syrup topped with vanilla ice cream. I rarely participate because I can't bring myself to eat it.

I have a friend whose mom used to make up a pate-like spread to serve the children. The spread consisted of hot dogs, pickles, ketchup (or catsup), mustard, onions and whatever else, PUREED and SPREAD ON WONDERBREAD. It seems to me that this recipe is just pre-chewed hot dogs, but I don't think I could ever bring myself to eat it. I'm happy not to have grown up in the friends' house...

Oh - I love GORP, but I thought it stood for Granola, Raisins and Peanuts. But what's the O? My mom made it with Dry Roasted Peanuts, M&Ms and Raisins. I make it with Dry Roasted Peanuts, plain M&Ms, Raisins, Craisins and Almond M&Ms.

Those nachos would be better chased down with Kool-Aid! MMMmmm. Kool-Aid!

When I was a kid, I'd make my own Chex Mix by melting butter, stirring in Chex, and then sprinkling on garlic salt.

The hot-dog-patee makes me want to hurl. Although I love hot dogs. Usually the cheaper the better. My husband fondly tells people that I am a three-dogs-for-a-dollar kind of girl. Also, I will not eat Wonder Bread. My family only eats Grandma Sycamore's Honey Whole Wheat.

Also, now is a good time to make a list of other things I will not eat:
Mayo (or Miracle Whip)
Fry Sauce (because Eww.)
Olives (I think that is what bugs would taste like)
Shell-fish (do you think mermaids eat our cockroaches - because really, it's the same thing)
Stinky cheese

Hey, does way back in college count?

When my roomie and I were just really, really poor, we went to the grocery store and bought a loaf of bread. (Using a check, no less. We had NO cash.) When we got back, we discovered we only had mayonaise in the fridge.

Don't say it, you might be thinking. Well, I'm going to. We made mayonaise sandwiches and had that for dinner. Mmmm...

Luckily that was years and years ago and I never do that anymore. Just ask my cholesterol level. :)

I just threw up a little in my mouth. Ick.

One time I sat around with a bunch of friends and we dared each other to drink pickle juice until someone threw up.

So yeah. You're not going to break me.

I'm glad you got the non-diet soda. That's about all I have to say about that.

I drank the equivalent of five or six, maybe seven, cans of Diet Coke with Lime yesterday. Just the thought of that much aspertame has got to be enough to make DaltonGirl crazy!

BTW I thought GORP was a health food! (Especially when chased with milk!) :o)

Alison is, in fact, the current leader. Let's try and top it.

Like yesterday evening, I had 1 1/2 donuts, followed by Nachos Bell Grande, followed by 2 chocolate chip cookies, half a hot dog, and four bites of an ice cream sandwich.

two words - corn dog

Yum. Add some potato wedges and popcorn chicken. Chock full o' nitrates, fat and carbs. MMMMMmmmm.

Does the anti-oxidant in the ketchup make it more healthful? Because I am feeling pretty good.

My little girl doesn't like corn dogs - so she had mozzarella sticks. Nothing better than cheese, breaded and deep fried. Life is good!

Antioxidants? In ketchup? My butt.

For my afternoon snack I had some (filtered) water, blueberries, and raw almonds. Mmm.

Oh, and Alison, you're quite mistaken. The amount of aspartame you consumed is more than enough to make YOU crazy. Literally. And even though I am currently not speaking to you, I do have a forgiving heart. I promise I will visit you every day when you're in the Assisted Living Center, and I'll never say "I told you so."

Also, I'm thinking of trying that pate thing with nitrite-free vegan hot dogs.

Nat, don’t you find it amusing that you get more comments, faster, regarding bad food choices (at least the ones folks actually admit to), as opposed to educational issues facing our state? I wonder if DaltonGirl is a closet junkaholic - all that denial . . . the river in Egypt is just one of the signs.

In the category of crazy food choices, some of the posts are down right amateurish! I don’t regard myself as even competitive in the world class bad diet division, but a good full rack of baby backs with all the fixings is child’s play. Of course it does take several diet cokes to wash it down. (Actually I have watched our little GoNat polish off a sampler plate at rib joint with room for desert.) My brother in law – nearing world class status but still not seriously competitive has polished off a 24 ounce Porterhouse steak in a single sitting with all the side dishes at Maddox and put away 10 or so of their home made rolls in the process.

I guess what DaltonGirl may not be aware of is the fact that eating healthy doesn’t make you live any longer. It just seems longer when the joy of eating is taken away. Think about how God punished the Jews – no pork!!!

(the pate thing is S&W though – it sounds like they were trying to commit wondercide)

Now it's had time to take laps around my brain for a while, I think 'squid in its own ink' tops my list of things I have eaten. It's basically a squid chowder, but it's black as tar. It tastes fine, but the more you eat, the more you notice the black chowder is actually a darkened shade of moss green. It gets harder and harder to finish.

I'm quite sure that the bottle of ketchup in my fridge has information on the label about the antioxidants it contains!

Then, again, all that aspertame may be affecting my thought processes . . .

Okay, in honor of DaltonGirl, here is what I had today!

This morning at work, I got myself an Apple Danish and a donut. Washed it down with a Diet Coke.

Didn't have time for lunch, so I had a couple of handfuls of peanut/m&m/cashew/almond trail mix. Washed down with Diet Coke.

Had another Diet Coke, or maybe two, during the day.

Came home and had three Nilla Wafers and a box of Cracker Jacks.

Then I had to ruin it by having a dinner of pizza and salad.

But I did finish off the day by eating two donuts and washing it down with . . . Diet Coke (what else?).

Ughh. I think I'll go collapse in bed now.
