Sweet Potato Fries are Really Good

Hamburgers are just not on my dinner menu very much any more. For one thing, the good ones are costing $5 each. And then if you add fried and a drink and tax you are looking at $10 for lunch or dinner. That’s crazy expensive and the cheap hamburgers – like the dollar menu – are so nasty that I wouldn’t want to eat them unless I was starving and had no choice.

So, I got a craving for a hamburger and it had to be a good one. I drove over to the Backyard Burgers drive through and got a hamburger with cheddar cheese and bacon – OMFG it was good! And they have a special feature on the menu – sweet potato fries. So I decided to try them. WOWZA! They knocked my socks off! OMG – I can’t wait to go back and get some more sweet potato fies – even if I don’t get another burger – I’d get those sweet potato fries on their own as a great snack!

Popcorn Lunch

Things were so crazy busy around here that all I had for lunch was a bag of microwave popcorn. I don’t even like popcorn all that much, but I was starving and that was the only thing I could see in the vending machine that would be even halfway healthy. I like chocolate as much as the next girl, but when you are hungry, chocolate does not fill you up.

Never knew there were so many different brands and flavors of popcorn until I went to Kroger this morning to pick up some popcorn and just keep it in my desk. I also picked up 5 frozen dinners to keep in the break room at work. They were on sale for $2 a piece and you can’t beat that price plus the convenience of them being just 6 minutes in the microwave away from being a fast lunch.

The only problem with putting a lot of food in the freezer at work is that people steal your food when they are stuck there late at night working on a deadline and don’t want to go out to buy their own fucking dinner. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to the freezer to grab one of my frozen lunches and I find a sticky note in there saying I.O.U. and my lunch is gone. When that happens I track down the fucker who stole my lunch and make him take me out to Longhorn Steakhouse for a lunch. That always costs about $20 instead of the $2 frozen lunch that they stole from me. But some of those guys don’t care at all – they even write it off on their expense reports and we both get to eat for free.
