That makes me sad for different reasons. Also every other mall makes me sad as well.

The Mall at Short Hills.

That place is fun just for playing the "guess what the hell that store sells" game based on the name/storefront.

Got to Popeye's around when it opened and the drive thru line was wrapped around the building. Decided to go inside instead. The wait was about 30 minutes. Still delicious and very awesome.

They actually called my number twice. But I didn't take the free food, much to everyone else's chagrin.
Just got back. The verdict:

I got the Classic at Popeye's and really enjoyed it. Will go back and get the spicy version at some point.

It's a chicken sandwich. Calm the fuck down America.

=-=-=-=-=-=

I'm really tired of burgers that aren't really edible unless you deconstruct and/or wear them. I don't want onion rings on top of bacon on top of mushrooms on top whatever the fuck else. So that billboard can fuck itself.

Yeah, I don't get the trend of burgers that are impossible to compress into a size that will fit into a human mouth unless you are Russell Wilson's first wife.

Yes, Big Macs are $6 here, a meal over $10+.

I love them.

. Four KFC tenders are *516 calories, and with two glazed doughnuts, one sandwich would be a whopping *1,016 calorie total;
Better order it with a diet coke.

Obviously the McDonalds version is whatever you think of McDonalds, but conceptually its a pretty great burger and probably the one I make most at home. Pickles, diced white onions, american + thousand island = very good.

Europeans hate American bread because all of it is too sweet.

They say if they want to eat cake, they'll get cake. After going to German bakeries for a few years I tended to agree.

isn't there ketchup in thousand island? ....

y it seems obvious why i'd never had one - and i certainly had my huge share of fast food as a kid in the 80s but back then the thought of onions or pickles on a burger was "gross" to me. now? pile it all on.

except you know.

but i feel like as a red-white-and-blue true american i really should eat/try one.

(those fries are just gross and completely flavourless tho - and i know i heard a podcast within the last few yrs that addressed that issue; they completely changed the recipe, used to be cooked in some sort of fat?)

Gotta let it soak up the natural yeast a bit before starting to bake. Kinda surprised D didn't wait the standard 4 days or so.
I took a two hour nap and cried during parks and Rec. it was awesome and terrifying.

Thousand island is generally ketchup, mayo, and relish.

McDonald's fries were originally cooked in tallow (beef fat).

I loathe ketchup and mayo, love thousand island.

Malcolm Gladwell's Revisionist History is the podcast, season 1 IIRC.

I've started going with sauerkraut/TI/cheddar and making them a Rueben burger of sorts, but with pickles on a butter toasted brioche bun. It's heavenly.

One problem with a big mac is that there is too much bun, relative to the toppings. This is also the problem with sliders.
