Muellers General Store promised Buffalo Burger, which we connected with the picture of free range buffalo lurching around the prairie, relaxed, easy, no hormones and antibiotics. A treatment that must lead, at least we assumed, to a delicious patty of bufalo meat on a tasty fresh bun garnished with thinly sliced onions, tomatoes (uhm, not for me, please), pickles, accompanied by golden french fries. Well, you’re getting the point.
The chef didn’t. Actually that burger isn’t really worth being mentioned and being remembered by anyone.
PS: That picture of Tyler was taken before he enjoyed dinner. And that prairie in the background is only a painting. Not the real thing.
Of course we had to visit Wal Mart. Everything in there was huge. I really mean huge, even the pants would fit two of us in one leg. But to whom am I explaining, you’re mostly from the States anyways, at least the stats say so.
But while it’s cheap it’s open for 24/7, which may be a good thing. Say you realize at 2am you want cook a Brasato al vino right now. Then again, does it sell wine? I guess it doesn’t, at least not during night, but I may be wrong on this one.
Anyway. I’m getting way too political here, which doesn’t suit me too good. Sometimes it just gets on me and I do not understand. So if you do: Feel free to explain. Thank you.
This is what you get if the only thing you care about is cheap and cheaper food and counting calories.
What’s the point in “Sugar Free Syrup”? Isn’t syrup per definition liquid sugar? Why would you want syrup if you don’t want sugar? Oh, of course, because you want great value. I forgot.
And with the other bottle you! get! 50%! more! … artificial flavors. But hey, it’s made in a country kitchen and it’s called butter, so it really must have some real butter in it, no? No? No? No. You wouldn’t want to buy it then, ‘cause then it got even more calories in it and then it would actually cost you a bit more. And hey, why pay more when it tastes the same? Almost the same that is.
Now I know. Real food is expensive, at least if the only choice you have to buy it is Whole Foods. And that really is a pitty. But with some effort you may also buy it at a local farmer’s market? At least you eat that stuff and after that it is in you and gives you some hard- and software to form your new cells.
Not to speak of the huge industry you feed with your dollars while buying that artificial … crap.
So you may want to reconsider from time to time where you buy and what you buy and with that what you eat.
