I needed to go out to Sams and fillup the old SUV with fuel for
the week. Paid $3.88 a gallon.

Since Sams store was closed I couldn't get any frozen White Castle burgers
which I love for breakfast. But as luck would have it there is a White Castle
store on the way home...Yay! :D

I stopped in and picked up a dozen rat cheese burgers with bacon! They don't
have the bacon ones in Sams. As I set them down on the counter to wrap in
freezer bags the heavenly odor of White Castles brought the dawgs and
SLW into the kitchen. And yes, she ate one!!! :eek: So did I. :D

Life is good...

But not before I took my Prilosec. :D

We went to a place called Highway 61 Roadhouse. It has Cajun food. It was my son's birthday, so took him and his wife, the other son and his girlfriend. The food made the Whities taste good.

Felt sorry for the restaurant; we were about the only customers for a while. I was told their food was alright. They had beignets---terrible. Their ribs tasted like they were leftovers from the previous day. This was not the best of buffets. The only thing tasty was the macaroni and cheese and some sort of corn pudding. Blech. That reminds me, need to call my son and apologize. What I thought would be a treat wasn't.

My experience with buffets is that the food is mediocre at best. Have been disappointed too many times at even supposedly good ones that are pricey. Sorry to hear you had a shitty meal. I have found a great seafood & Cajun restaurant close to my house called Parrains. They are packed on weekends and holidays. Got my dad fried catfish, Cajun rice dressing and hush puppies for father's day and a big rug for the living room.

Sounds good. I'll bet your dad liked that food. Of course, down in Baton Rouge, you'd get good Cajun food. Here in STL, it's not so greyt.

The beignets were sort of cold, soggy, with no taste. At least I wasn't tempted to overeat, so I guess that's a good thing. :D

I'll give them a try.They called them White Castle sliders or Slyders, at one time.Little square burgers in a box with onions,about two bites and they were gone .They were so small they sold them to go by the box.The average meal if you dined in was about eight to ten sliders and a root beer .The White Castles diners are long gone but well remembered !

I did not know that they had good food in FL; just kidding. However, when I see a place away from LA that has LA, Cajun or Crawfish in their store name, I avoid it like the plague.

I used to eat at the posh Baton Rouge Country Club where I worked for 4 years. I did not care for their Sunday dinner because the head chef idea of cooking meat was to douse it in wine. The black cooks served fantastic golfer special lunches during the week though. I ate a buffet at the Doral Country Club in Miami that was outstanding along with a smorgasbord in Seattle. Other than that, most of them have been bummers.

Not to divert from the White Castle thread, but SR bought a big package of frozen crawfish from Sam's. I was the eeevil one who took it back. It was "farmed in China". :eek: I don't trust their food for the hounds, let alone us. Funny that when I was at the opening of the new Whole Foods fancy schmancy store not far from my house, I again saw a large pack of frozen crawfish. I checked closer----also from China. I put it down.

That golfer special lunch sounds good. One of the reasons I joined my sorority at college was for the black cook. She was wonderful. Recently I found a cookbook with some of her favorite recipes. I didn't particularly like my sorority sis's, but loved the architecture of their house (looked like a Southern plantation home stuck on the Illinois prairie) and the cook, Virgie. Her southern cooking was outstanding.

They still have the White Castle "diners" here. And those burgers are still small with lots and lots of onions. My problem is the meat always looks greyish brown and is a far cry from Angus beef. $1.09 for each cheese/bacon burger is pricey, as there's nothing to them.

Think my company had too many Slyders---used to be their idea of a big treat for the sales reps. I grew to despise those things. Now we don't even get them, so guess that should teach me to never complain. :D

They are little onion patties with a slight bit of artificial meat flavoring.

Chinese crawfish are tough, chewy and have a tang to them. I would rather spend a few dollars more and get the real deal from LA. Ever since I heard about them farming seafood in polluted waters I would not buy any thing from China.

Many years ago, we used to have a place that sold these miniature burgers. I don't remember if the name was White Castle or not but you had to eat 3 or 4 to equal a regular burger.

They put a White Castle into Kenosha right off the interstate down south near the Illinos border.

I have made 2 hour road trips to go there and indulge from time to time.

The little bacon cheeseburgers are the greatest invention since sliced bread or penicillan.

Camden New Joursey People Talk About White Tower and Marbett's

"There's a picture of a White Tower Castle at the link !"

http://www.dvrbs.com/camden/CamdenNJ-WhiteTower-Marbetts.htm

A long time ago, my mother and father (and me) took the bus to NYC, and you boarded it at a stop outside the White Tower. I remember a white bag of hamburgers were purchased at 5 (five) cents each that were placed inside a small bun. The burgers were the size of a silver dollar. Not, too, good in taste and quality (but, at that time, around 1935, who cared about "quality"?).
........................................
I loved the taste of those burgers,there was something about the combination of the grilled hamburger meat, chopped unions and the pickle. I consider myself an aficionado after sitting in the Bridge Plaza White Tower and having a couple burgers and coffee every night for most of Feb. and March 1948 as I was waiting for the bus to take me home while courting my lovely wife to be.

To me, the onions overpower the burger. However, to each their own. When I eat them, I am usually in pain afterwards along with other digestive problems that they cause. I can't see the big deal people make about them.

I didn't sleep well last night after eating only one of those little eeevil things. Yuck. I probably should take an additional Prilosec today to compensate. I definitely do not share SR's love of those nasty little things. :D

Count me in on that one. Almost 23 years with my company in equipment sales has led me to be alternately prescribed Nexium, Prilosec, etc for over 10 years. I have to be "scoped" every few years to be sure that the reflux hasn't progressed further. I need to take one of those stress reduction classes, meditation, yoga or all of the above. Or I could change professions, which might be the best idea yet. Whities definitely aren't on the list of foods that are good to eat for me.

I have Barrett's and know how serious it can be. That's why I have to be scoped, to make sure all is well. Crap food like Whities isn't worth it to me. Cancer or precancerous is nothing to mess around with. So no whities for me, except the one last night, which convinced me to not eat any more. I really felt bad from it, woke up around 2:30, usually sleep like a baby.

My reflux was caught at a young age of 24 (I'm now 45). With the help of Nexium, I can now occassionally eat lightly spicy foods. It's amazing how much flavor I missed ou on for all of those years. I'm at lower risk for the other complications that you mentioned. My years of avoidance and medicine have paid off.

We didn't have White Castle in West Michigan, so my dad would rave about them when we were kids, and even slip out on visits to relatives in Detroit to go gulp down a bag of sliders.

I had one once with my sister when I lived out in Chesterfield TWP, because there was one nearby. I didn't like it. My sister ate a sackfull. It's probably why she had ulceratice colitis at such a young age.
