The Girl Who Ate Everything

Blogging about food and whatever since 2004.

waffles + onion rings

For some reason, "ghetto syrup" was the first description that popped in my head when I saw this. It was after I ate it though.

Today I had onion rings and a waffle with strawberries for dinner at Vandam Diner. Yup. Why? I WANTED WAFFLES, DAMMIT (didn't really need the onion rings but I figured, why not?). I didn't eat breakfast/lunch, unless you count a few Pocky sticks Corinne gave me. I WAS FORCED! I SWEAR! (Oh...come on, you can't resist Pocky.)

Boy, do I eat crap or what? It could've been worse and I certainly don't get to eat that kind of food at home. Funny that even though I've lived in NJ for most of my life, the home of a million diners, I never go to any of them. For some reason I feel like it's more fun to go to diners in NYC (I've eaten at a handful of em, mainly for the purpose of comparing pancakes, which all kind of suck by the way).

Of course, I was still kind of hungry by the time I got home, thus resulting in the consumption of an orange, a bunch of strawberries (mmmm), a mantou with olive oil (mmmmmmm), a little bit of my brother's chocolate cake from Whole Foods (which is actually more like fudge, so it's probably good that I only ate a forkful of it), some potato chips (baaaad), a pineapple cake, and three chocolate covered almonds from La Maison du Chocolat (they are very good).

... lordy.

So! Time for some links. Have I mentioned the Fancy Food Show? I feel like I have. Oh, how I wish I could attend.

I think I want this book: Fat Girl.

Hey Rob,

I wonder if that orange you eat daily cancels all the bad things? ;) I don't think I'd every be able to follow your diet of sweets. My health-concious mode would kick in and scream, "DAMN IT, MAN! That's too much saturated fat! You're not getting enough fiber/calcium/vitamin xyz!"

I like the quote amazon listed for Fat Girl. "Too fat to -," uh, rhymes with duck.

Onion rings are soo good. If you’re in the D.C. area, the best onion rings on this side of town are at Z Burger. They are the perfect comfort food alongside one of the numerous milkshakes they have.
