    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.

    I've never had a White Castle. I've never seen one of the stores but I didn't know they had frozen ones at Sams. I'll give them a try.
    Hey careful man! There's a beverage here!

    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 !

    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.

    It was real meat like frozen little square hockey pucks with lots of holes.Each White Tower was staffed with just one person who baked the rolls in large pans and cooked a full grills worth of onions and little bergers at once.He wrapped each in a little sleve and As fast as they came from the grill they were gone.

    Now this thread, albeit a bit dated, is Lounge worthy.
    Although I do not see the connection to vacuum storage bags.

    ETA...

    Those little bot suckers sure can pick through the pepper to find the fly crap. :D
