Mmmmmm. Grease!

Just looking at this picture makes my left arm hurt. But in a good way.

Thank God we don't have Hardees around here or I'd weigh 500lbs. I get my fix when I visit relatives in SW Va.

The Hardees in my area doesn't have that great of food...so I don't eat there often...but I might have to try this burrito.

Hey chris, do you have any Carl's Jrs around? I think that they are the same thing as Hardees.

Wonder how long before they make that sort of thing illegal in NY and Cal.

Finally! Something better than Sonic's 'Supersonic Breakfast Burrito'!

Now, if it only had Jalapenos....(on a steek....)

Avenger, no we don't have Carl's Jr. We have Roy Rogers, which is nasty and similar to Hardees in the 70s and 80s.

I wouldn't eat at Hardees on a bet.
Too many bugs running across my food!

Interesting. I ran across an article just yesterday in which a medical researcher said that the brouhaha over fat was BS. Much like the "Gotta do a tonsillectomy!" craze of the 1940s and 1950s. What's called a "cascade effect" where Mr. B is influenced by Mr. A, even though Mr. A is wrong. B parrots to C, in a cascade, and then "Everybody knows."

My arteries are hardening just looking at that.

Art, that may be true, but the fact is that this meal packs about 1000 calories. They have lunch/dinner meals that are 1000 calories or more. If you ate there three times a day that's 3000 calories, which is 1000 more than the average person burns in a day. Do that three times in a week and you've gained a pound, repeat that week 5 times and you've gained enough to notice when you button your pants.

Calories are calories regardless of the fat.

Chris: chase ya 'round the block a few times?

You can eat less or exercise more; either one works. Or you can do both.

Nothing like a good disosiated chest pain joke.

Thanks for that Tam! : ]

roberta, just so we'll be on record, you can chase me around the block. It's a win/win, the way I see it.

Watch this space for further offers...

Ah, that's nothing. When I was in Germany, a small restaurant there had what they called a "farmer's meal". Take a 12 inch square platter, cover it 2 inches deep in German (pan) fried potatos. Cover that with a layer of breaded and deep fried pork chops. Then cover it all with a huge omelet that must have required over a half-dozen eggs.

Yum!!!

But I did wonder whether it was intended for the guy steering the plow, or if they were going to hitch up the man who could eat all that to pull the plow. It's about the only way you could work off all those calories.
