Sunday Dinner... and what will be following

Working with people who are married, I get small glimpses of what it is like for married couples. Some of what I see, I envy. Some of what I see, I don't. For those who follow my blog or know me personally, you must know that food is important to me. For married folks, no matter how busy they are during the week, it seems that Sunday Dinner is a time they can really enjoy a well prepared meal, as well as the company of one another. This I envy.

As I spend most of my weekends in my recliner, the variety of my meals is usually dictacted by what commercial I see when i first feel hungry. Or at least the commercials I see when I am the most bored. Today's Sunday Dinner inspiration came to me after seeing a commercial for Taco Bell's Loaded Nachos. After placing my order at the drive thru and then chatting for a bit with Juan (the night manager, and yes, he and I are on a first name basis), I arrived home with an extra large Diet Pepsi (because I'm on a diet) and my Loaded Nachos.

Now, envision a taco salad bowl filled with nachos and you have an accurate description of the Loaded Nachos. To evenly distribute the Loaded part of the nachos, I used the spork that Juan provided me to crunch up the salad bowl and chips. I then scattered the heart of the nachos qually across the crunch reminants of the tortilla bowl and chips.

It was fantastic. Upon completion I examined the spork and noticed that the prongs were missing. I quickly scowered the black plate for the prongs. Nothing.

My Sunday Dinner may not have been a well prepared meal shared with the company another, but at least I'll be looking forward to the next day or so, as a part of the meal (or at least the spork) will be with me for a while.


  1. I'm still laughing from the facebook status. really. hahahaha

  2. I had a similar situation happen to me (with the commercial part, not eating the silverware part) When I heard about the guarantee of every chip being loaded with toppings and had to find out for myself. I asked Matt if he wanted one and he said no. However, he ended up eating 3/4 of it. When you get married you have a whole different set of problems. Good luck.
