We eat good here in the Anderson house. The kids, not so much, but the wife and I eat really healthy, great food, usually always fresh vegetables, fresh fish with maybe some brown or jasmine rice. My favorite dinner and I’ve said it before, I could have this every night for the rest of my life, is grilled salmon and Caesar salad. That being said, this weekend I half jokingly suggested fish sticks and macaroni and cheese for dinner. “That wouldn’t be so bad” I thought, thinking back on being a kid and loving the two. Grace was not opposed but we couldn’t make ourselves do it and she made an awesome Thai coconut soup. Well last night I got the bright idea again and actually bought the shit to make it. After getting the go ahead I prepared everything just like the boxes said and even added a little extra REAL cheese at the end. This was gonna be great, reliving the past through food. I was gonna take one bite and be back on Westchester road again and getting ready to do homework.
The moment of truth came and I put fork to mouth. Where was it? Taste, I mean, there was nothing but texture…and grease (on the stix). GOD! THIS SUCKS! How did we ever eat this shit? And I wasted valuable time making it and calories eating it! Either they’re making it worse these days or it was never as good as I remember it. Mr. Gorton, you’re in the wrong business! Ya need to start making dog food! OMG! It was awful! And I’ll tell ya something else, it didn’t get a damn bit better with the SECOND plateful I ate! When and if you ever this notion! DON’T DO IT!
