Butter, maple syrup, pancakes? mmmm... You are making me wish that I had worked out longer than an hour at the gym today.

Yeah, we're still working on one of those we bought last year.

I was in there the other day and had to resist the gallon jug of honey for $9. We go through a small squeeze bottle about every 2-3 weeks, but that was just too ridiculous even for me...I had that "but its 30x the amount for only 3x the price!!!" thing going on in my head.

I think I'm just thankful that nobody has come up with a dual can setup; one that sprays country fried steak and the other dispensing sausage gravy.

I'd be on a gurney in 3 days.

You're squeezing the tree too hard.

My diet plan is this: If I weigh 168 or less at any point during the week, then on Sunday morning I make myself an apple pancake with pure maple syrup (thinly sliced apple embedded in the pancake, cooked in olive oil). Today was the first pancake for about two months.

I'd think a few days of complete dehydration would dip you under enough for the pancake. Either that or make one of your body parts removable.

Uhh...wheres the dang bacon though? Or is "apple" a secret keyword for fatty smoked pork products?

After uttering the words "chicken fried steak with country gravy" I had to have some. Took the family out for breakfast and had to order the only version of the dish at the restaurant we went to: with three eggs, enough country fried potatoes to build a small residential wall, and a biscuit the size of my head.

I think i'm done eating for the day.

I'm wondering when he'll just spray the batter directly on the rabbit/cat/dog. Isn't it more frugal not to waste the heat cooking?

BTW I am sending this product link to Right-Wing Sis. You don't want to see the kitchen after her DH makes pancakes. He INSISTS on being the pancake-maker but the room is literally awash in batter afterwards; they shoulda used him for their commercial as he's far messier than the housewife/model. Thanks for the tip!

b. Country fried steak and eggs
c. Three slices of French toast with syrup and margarine

While we're at it, which of these has the most fat?

a. Traditional lasagna
b. Chicken Caesar salad
c. Pasta Classico with sausage and peppers
d. BBQ chicken pizza

And which of these has the highest calorie count?

a. Two Big Macs
b. Two Egg McMuffins
c. One large chocolate shake
d. Four regular hamburgers

By the way, its also possible that CFB stands for "Chicken Fried Bacon". Look it up on you tube...

c. Three slices of French toast with syrup and margarine
d. Three pancakes with syrup and margarine
I'd wager b. More protein, less carbs... wrt c, what kind of milk in the mixture?

As an aside, CalorieKing - Diet and weight loss. Calorie Counter and more. is very useful for comparing restaurants.

Nope, I just managed to sleep until 8 this morning before I had 30 pounds of "dada you awake?!?" land on my head.

Hmm, I had different data...

a. Two Big Macs (1,080 calories)
b. Two Egg McMuffins (600 calories)
c. One large chocolate shake (1,160 calories)
d. Four regular hamburgers (1,000 calories)

Ah I see the problem, you had data from the 16oz "medium", this is for the 32oz "extra large".

Also, just in case we arent feeling puffy already, may I present the "Luther Burger"? A 1lb bacon cheeseburger between two glazed donuts?

If thats not working for you, perhaps a Ham Dog? A hotdog rolled in ground beef, breaded, deep fried, with chili and a fried egg on top?
