... okay, so I've just dated myself! But, it's true!
Last weekend I had a hankerin' for a hamburger... not just any hamburger, but a Steak N Shake steakburger! I had worked very hard all day Saturday... my sons were not home for dinner and I decided to treat myself.
Here's the rub, I had worked around the house all day and when that happens, I sometimes don't take time to eat more than a handful of peanuts or a piece of toast... in other words, I was starving! Not a good thing when you are armed with a $5 gift certificate. So, I hit the road, rented a movie (Pitch Perfect... funny) and made my way to Steak N Shake.
Hmmmm, $5 to spend... I don't drink soda, so I didn't want to go the route of a combo meal that includes soda... but wait, 4 items under $4... and they include french fries!!! BUT, I have FIVE dollars to spend... I need to order something else... Hmmmm... a MILK SHAKE!!!! So, let's make that order a TRIPLE Steakburger, french fries and a Mocha Milk Shake! AND, I ate every last bite... til grease was running down my arms to my elbows and whipped cream from the shake was smeared all over my face... I ATE THE WHOLE THING!!!! Needless to say, I was full. And I no longer crave a hamburger... BUT, I didn't need a Tumms or pepto or whatever that commercial was advertising... (still have that cast iron stomach of my youth, I guess).
Summer was kind enough to look up the caloric content of my decadent meal... one thousand, eight hundred and twenty-eight calories... somehow that seams a little low... Hmmmm, maybe I'll do it again...
