ran out of those breakfast bar things...so grabbed a egg mc muffin....



I haven't eaten at McDonalds for any reason in over 5 years. Reading Fast Food Nation will do that for you.

But for some strange reason, an egg McMuffin sounds really good right now. If I weren't at work already, I would pop a few English Muffins into the toaster, fry up and egg and make one myself.

For breakfast this morning, I had oatmeal with a light sprinkling of brown sugar, coffee and two Eggo Nutri-Grain Blueberry Waffles. Honestly, I eat the Nutri-Grain waffles not because they are healthy, but because I think that they taste better.

And for the record, I have not actually put waffles on a plate and poured syrup over them in quite some time. I pop a few Eggos into the toaster and eat 'em hot from the toaster.

Oatmeal in one minute, waffles in one minute and coffee in 3 minutes. Breakfast is ready in 5 minutes and it's delicious. Everyone should eat breakfast.

Re: Your 2008 Attended Games Record ...


Breakfast is one of three most important meals of the day.
Ok maybe one of four.
Definitely top 5.


Important Update- 4/23

Today marks my return to coffee. I can only drink so much tea. I'm considering starting a thread about the relative merits of each, but right now I am still bogged down in the research phase.

Please check back often, and nervously, as the thread could appear at anytime, and you don't want to be the last one to see it.

Your 2008 Attended Games Record ...


I rarely eat at fast food places, never McDonalds. They have the absolute worst food (other then fries), if I had to rank them from best to worst.

1. Taco Bell
2. Burger King
3. Wendy's
4. Jack in the Box
5. In and Out
6. Carls JR.
7. McDonalds

If there was a White Castle in the area it would easily be #1, of couse I'd probably weigh 300 lbs. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm nothing like White Castle to curb the munchies.

Tea is for chicks and English people. And I'm not altogether positive that there is such thing a a real English man, so that might just be a redundancy.

The only way tea should ever be consumed is if it is cold and is in a Tejava bottle. Now THAT is some goos stuff, manard.

This morning, I had a homemade McMuffin, but I used a bagel instead of an English Muffin. I had coffee and orange juice to go with it.

Coffee is the nectar of the gods.

yeah, yeah, I know, I know. But 6 bags in a 16 0z cup works pretty good in a pinch, and it's fast in a microwave (4 minutes, and its done after one extra minute of steeping)

Think of it as emergency caffeine, (when you are out of coffee.)
Much like drinking warm beer because you are stuck on the lake with no ice left, no tequila left and a dead outboard.

Update 4/24:

Today was a big breakfast day. 2 eggs on toast and a danish, with some ultra strong and killer tasting non-corporate coffee.

The high calorie meal was my tribute to Bengie and his clutch 9 iron last night.

**Note: At risk of making this thread actually interesting - I have decided to add the occasional pictures to the breakfast updates.

Your number three just got eaten by number 8


Long Boring article below, greatly shortened for the board before posting:


Arby's Swallows Up Wendy's
Roast Beef Sandwich Chain Buys Square Burger Biz For $2 Billion
COLUMBUS, Ohio, April 24, 2008

(AP) After two past rejections, the owner of Arby's shaved roast beef sandwich restaurants is buying Wendy's, the fast-food chain famous for its made-to-order square hamburgers and chocolate Frosty dessert, for around $2 billion.

Triarc Companies Inc., which is owned by billionaire investor Nelson Peltz, said Thursday it will pay about $2.34 billion in an all-stock deal for the nation's third-largest hamburger chain started in 1969 by Dave Thomas. Wendy's had rejected at least two buyout offers from Triarc.

Thomas' daughter Pam Thomas Farber said the family was devastated by the news.

"It's a very sad day for Wendy's, and our family. We just didn't think this would be the outcome," said Farber, 53.

If her father were alive to hear news of the buyout, "he would not be amused," she said.

Thomas became a household face when he began pitching his burgers and fries in television commercials in 1989.

The deal caps two chaotic years for Wendy's in which it has sold or spun off operations, slashed its corporate staff and had its wholesome image tarnished by a woman who falsely claimed she found part of a finger in her chili.

Pushed by activist shareholders, Wendy's spun off its Tim Hortons coffee-and-doughnut chain and sold its money-losing Baja Fresh Mexican Grill. Chairman and CEO Jack Schuessler abruptly retired in March 2006, months after a woman and her husband were sentenced to prison for extortion for their plot in March 2005 to plant part of a human finger in a bowl of chili at a San Jose, Calif., Wendy's restaurant and claiming it was served to her.

Farber said the family didn't think much of Peltz' and Triarc's tactics.

"They came after them (Wendy's) and came after them and came after them. They spun Tim Hortons off, they did this, they did that. They did everything they asked but it wasn't enough."

Farber said she had just gotten off the phone with her sister Wendy, 46, the company's namesake.

"She's feeling horrible. She just is devastated," Farber said.

Farber said the family had a supported an alternate bid led by Wendy's franchisee David Karam, president of Cedar Enterprises Inc.

"We knew what Dave Karam's commitment was to Wendy's, his family's commitment — just as ours. His dad was a very good friend of our dad's and was one of the very first franchisees, so there's a lot of history."

Thomas, who died in 2002, opened his first restaurant in a former steakhouse on a cold, snowy Saturday in downtown Columbus on Nov. 15, 1969. He named the chain after his 8-year-old daughter Melinda Lou — nicknamed Wendy by her siblings.

The smiling Thomas, always wearing a white short-sleeved shirt and red tie, touted the virtues of fast food in humorous ads, often featuring big-name stars such as bluesman B.B. King and soap opera queen Susan Lucci. He appeared in more than 800 ads.

Wendy's, based in suburban Dublin, operates about 6,600 restaurants in the United States and abroad. It trails McDonald's and Burger King Holdings Inc. in the burger business.

Arby's has more than 3,000 restaurants.

I've never eaten at Arby's so I don't know if they are 8 or not, I should have made a disclamer that I have never had a meal worse then McDonalds so I would assume Arby's would at least be ahead of McDonalds.
