The Crazy Suburban Mom: Bon Voyage, Retro Tuesday

Bon Voyage, Retro Tuesday

 Yesterday started normally but like two words and three seconds into Retro Tuesday the day deteriorated into some crazy hairy awful that was such a huge (HUGE!)  pain it could only rivaled by the astounding awful of the calorically absurd 'Appetizer Favorites' Selection at the Cheesecake Factory. Maybe.

And in case your wondering about the nutrition information I spoke of up there- it's three-thousand two hundred and eighteen calories, sixty-three grams of fat and also by the way - Six-thousand seven hundred and three grams of sodium which is, I don't even know what that is.

And also if your still wondering cause this nutrition information begs for more wondering on so many levels but in case what your wondering is why I wrote the numbers out instead of using numerals it's because those numbers are so high they seem more like something you'd write on checks than calories, you know what I mean?

Six thousand seven hundred and three.  

Doesn't that sound like something you would write on a check (okay, well not me.  I've not written that kind of check.  In fact most of the cars I've owned were worth less than that.  Way less than that.) and not something you'd order for a before your meal comes so you don't get peckish and cranky type thing?

And, oh yeah they say it serves four.  Because I always order a big plate of fried delicious and than share it with three other people, don't you?

Where the heck was I?


And I guess I could do Retro Wednesday because I've gone all the way to Retro Thursday but I don't even have that in me.  I guess if I'm feeling it tomorrow...  But... I think the Retro Tuesday ship might have sailed this week.  Bon Voyage, Retro Tuesday till we meet again.

Next Tuesday.

Well, life happens! Those nutritional informations were SCARY! Even if it serves 4, it's like all the calories you can eat in one day, woa! Like when I learned a BigMac was 25 WW points and I was just aloowed to eat 25 points in a day....Oh boy! I did Retro Tuesday all by myself...I missed you T.

sigh. yesterday was a sort of mess and I don't think I've not posted on a tuesday before... I just got home after 6 I think and didnt have it in me... as to the nutrition info I thought of actually posting a main dish for like 2000 cause that was intended for one person but this was so awful.. couldnt help it because lots of people dont share.

whoa, this is why I'm glad the food I cook doesn't come with counters! LOL I'd feel so bad about it after.

DH is going on a trip so tomorrow I'm making him a spectacular going off food(s) (scones with cream for breakfast, and rib eye with some sort of cheese and artichokes for supper) I'll blog them promise!

and don't feel bad, I neglected my blog for like a week? and no one even called me out on it!! HA

J - honestly those stats are so bad I don't even know how they get them that way. How do you get that much, say, sodium in something and have it still be palatable? I mean really? That's a lot! And as to fat - how much can you stuff in food? Seriously without injecting it after its done?

Yikes! This is why I'm glad I never get appetizers, and that I don't have a Cheesecake Factory within an hours drive of me!
