I think I’m going to enjoy reading back on this month’s posts especially after the steroid treatments were started. There has been no planning for any posts except the plan to get caught up on book posts that I started at the beginning of the month. Then medical stuff happened and best laid plans went the way of the dodo.
Tonight I shall write about the disappointment that was the All In Bacon Burger from Applebee’s. When B called after work to discuss food, neither of us knew what we wanted. At first he said he’d come home and we’d order something but then he said he wouldn’t want to go back out once he got home so he’d just swing by Culver’s so I looked up the flavor of the day and it was cherry cheesecake and he said ew and I said I’d get it if it were strawberry cheesecake but I’m not a fan of cherries so he said he’d come home and we’d order out from Applebee’s.
The decision was easy to make once he read about the new All In burgers. They take ingredients and cook them right along with the ground beef of the patty. At first the mushroom swiss sounded good but then he read the bacon burger and come on, it’s bacon, cooked right into the patty and then topped with bacon. I hadn’t had bacon in a long time so I immediately tasted it in my mind. Bippity boppity bacon!
I tweeted to my friend Ricardo that I was excited about this bacon burger and then when I was done I told him I was disappointed. I asked him what I should write about for today’s post and he said, “the lackluster burger.”
I just could hardly taste the bacon. That doesn’t quite seem possible since it was cooked right into the patty but they put this barbecue ranch sauce on the burger and that seemed to like cancel out the taste of the bacon or something. And it was way too greasy, probably since there was bacon in the patty. And the bacon wasn’t crispy at all and it didn’t come with any condiments. It needed a ring of red onion. It was just a disappointing burger. You know the burger in Pulp Fiction that Jules eats and he’s like, “damn, that is a tasty burger.” This was opposite. Lackluster is right.
