I am truly the weak when it comes to food. Later in the day we have a pool party to attend, but for now, we needed to eat lunch before we go. I started pulling out some bowls and a few salad ingredients. I haven’t baked up some chicken lately so it would have to be a meatless salad. As I begin preparation, I tell Jim that there’s no chicken but would he like a salad too? Jim says, “Oh, actually, I was thinking about having lunch at Whataburger today.” Quickly, as if the healthy foods may revolt and jump down my throat, I put it all away in the fridge and reply, “OK”. Of we went…… so weak.
For those of you who have never been to one or never even heard of it, Whataburger is a fast foodish type place.
I’m not done yet. We arrive, I stare at the menu. I really should order a single burger but the double looks good. Actually I shouldn’t really be here. Since I’m here though that double looks good. I don’t want to sound fat so I decide to see what Jim will order and then make my quick decision. He asks if the peach pie is fried or baked. It’s fried! Oh my, it’s heaven all around. He orders. Double burger, add cheese, onion rings instead of fries and a peach pie. Me? Duplicate that please.
When I ordered my burger, I added this, and held that but didn’t realize it had mustard. I was bummed but thought, since I don’t dislike mustard, it will be OK. I decided not to add ketchup. It was divine. I wondered if maybe I needed to order burgers with mustard only for now on? Perhaps I really enjoyed the fat, perhaps the spices, perhaps the meat, but them were some good burgers! Mmmmmmm. The onion rings? Yum. The peach pie….not so much.
OK, I didn’t realize I’d blog so much about a burger. I’m a sad piece of work…..
So we went to a pool party at Gregg’s. A new face at the pool party was James. We all had a great time, and the steaks on the grill were awesome.
