O.T. What are you eating? (AKA the burrito thread)

Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

O.T. What are you eating? (AKA the burrito thread)

The mods weren't digging the off topic burrito clutter in the "serious" threads, so here we are. We have a "What are you listening to?" thread and a "What are you drinking?" thread, so I figured it was only fair to have an "Eating" thread.

Objective fact, burritos are the superior training fuel. Get the balance between carbs and protein right and you can conquer any biking challenge. They are difficult to bring on rides, but pre and post ride they can be a delicious super food. Bonus points for no utensils required, like pizza.

So, good, bad, healthy, sinful, savory, sweet, at home, or out on the town, tell us what awesome food or place you've discovered, or what places and chow to avoid.

----------------------------------------



I'll start. My sister is visiting. She brought a bag of Cocados (sort of a Toasted coconut/oatmeal cookie). It's essentially one half of a Taffy (Mother's brand) cookie with no creamy filling. She is threatening to open the bag and smear Nutella on them. I've begged her not to do it in my presence because it will be like eating a potato chip. Once you get started you can't stop. Sibling rivalry/tension. She's doing it to torture me.

No picture, just a description.

Jimmy John's #17 Ultimate Porker (ham & bacon) no tomato, extra cucumbers, hot peppers, and who can have bacon on a sandwich without extra bacon? Had some of these with it.

No burrito, but still great stuff. Luckily I am smart enough to not put the rice in with the chicken and veggies, only a clown would do that.

I am thinking about a folding bike for when I travel. I really like the Bromptons with the lacquer finish. What do you guys think?

Here in the south we have delicacies like the Moon Pie. Vanilla is the preferred flavor; we save the banana flavored ones for the tourists. The closer you ride to Chattanooga, the fresher they are.



And put away your stereotypes. RC Cola is for people in New Jersey. We likes us some Cheerwine with our Moon Pies. No cans. Bottles please.




Cheerwine and Moon Pie's a birthday party right there.

Prior to WWII Hostess made their Twinkies with Banana cream filling. During the war bananas were rationed so the company was forced to use a cheap white cream (not even vanilla) instead. It stuck and stayed that way for 60 years. Around 2004 I was walking through the grocery store and Hostess had a BIG Retro type anniversary commemorative limited edition banana Twinkie display. $1.00 for a box of ten. I bought some and stuck them in the freezer. Because the cake is so spongy and low quality and the filling is 90% fluffed air, they never got hard in the freezer. They were more firm and WAY better than room temp.

This thread is about burritos, and if you do not respect the OP and discuss burritos, instead of this crud called twinkies, I will report you to the mods and they will have to clean up this thread and get rid of these garbage posts. You have been warned!

That was fun.

You don't need a Brompton. A $35 1970s folding bike like my cherished treasured delight will do just fine:



Edit: Hee hee. I just realized that I pilfered the brake cable from this bike for another and it must look extra bonus dumb. Thank goodness for coaster brakes.

It is that ridiculous. And I know it to be so.

The thing is, I ride a lot of kilometers on a fixed gear bicycle every day of the week and my feet are strapped in on those bikes. After a while, when I hopped on the idiot bike to run a few errands, I felt immediately unsafe and out of control because I lacked the familiar sensation of my feet being firmly affixed to the pedals: Hence the clips and straps.

First cow: What do you think about all of this 'mad cow disease' craziness?
Second cow: Why would I care? I'm a helicopter.

And, is that why we aren't seeing any beef burritos?
