You know what's weird? I'm a big fat guy and I have my share of vices when it comes to eating and drinking. And obviously my meal is no health conscious serving. But I've never really been a fan of the overly decadent meals. It didn't even connect with me just HOW crazy Cory's meal is when I voted for it. I just saw a bunch of things I liked and hit the button. But if actually given the choice I don't think I could eat that and I'd almost always choose the home cooked meal with some veggies that I can just enjoy without stuffing myself and feeling like I was taking a year or two off my life.
Lucky, you've got hot dogs, cheese and gravy covered french fries, and a steak for dessert. I think that's pretty comparable to pizza, au gratin potatoes, and ribs. The only kicker is no booze but liquid gravy.
You're absolutely right. I don't want to pretend mine isn't heavy and artery clogging. I went for a decadent meal because I figured that's what would sell with the bacon crowd here. But I dunno, its probably in large part just an image idea. Yours feels like what I'd have at the end of a drunken night or at a barbecue with a keg. Mine feels more to me like what I'd be eating WHILE I got drunk.
I like ribs. I l,ike pizza. I like Au Gratin potatoes. I'd drink gravy if given the chance (I've drank ranch and hot salsa before just to quench my hungerthirst). But all of them in one meal? They don't flow together. There's no fluidity when you have ribs, pizza and random potato side. Fire's is an actual meal, not just kickass foods in a random tandem. Plus, it helps that all of her food kicks ass even if riesling is a pussy tasting sweet wine.
Replace the pizza with creamed spinach or a can of beets or peas or something and I'd vote for it.
Is it so hard to imagine? Is it so hard to believe? Something so outrageous, something so far-fetched, well how 'bout Adam and Eve?
All you idiots treating this as if it's a real meal. "Oh, my stomach might get full. Despite living in America and gorging myself on holiday food at quarterly intervals throughout the year, I couldn't possibly have ribs AND pizza! I don't want a $25,000 dollar dessert for free!"
Perhaps I should fill your baby bottles with formula. Formula of GRAVY.
