View Full Version : Brain Flatulance: GPS on the cheap in the south
07-14-2006, 06:03 PM
You're tooling around in your Nash Rambler in the south and need gps to find, say, the location of the nearest lottery dealer...Advice: stop at the nearest Waffle House if you are in the south...A WH is always on the right of the morning traffic. Its employees are the kindest folks around. I also like to find the Major Food Group of Red Necks (grease, salt, sugar, and caffein) economically priced. (If I do not have chest pains and arm numbness, I personally do not trust the eatery!)

them thar Waffle Houses are considered 5 - star restaurants round heah.
Get ya a plate of rare T-bone covered with 57 sauce, eggs over easy with tabasco, a double order hash browns smothered, covered and scattered ( that's wit onions and cheese ), toast with peach butter, and a big old pecan waffle wit butter and maple syrup. Wash it all down wit a big glas of sweet milk, mmmmmmmmm yummy ! Best part, all for 'bout 10 bucks, including the tip for the purty waitress.
That thars the nouvelle cuisine of da south !!
yall can kep your patte' and them thar snails ya call escargot, I would'nt feed that mess ta Muggs , my ole bird dog !

oh, n just in case yall don't think I know what nouvelle cuisine is here ya go .
Advocates of nouvelle cuisine reject the over- rich, complicated, and indigestible dishes that are no longer suitable to a generation conscious of health hazards of overeating, especially of fatty foods, known to contribute to obesity and cardiovascular disease. To counter this—and the increasing use of processed food—they espouse authenticity and simplicity in cooking. The nouveaux cuisiniers seek to uphold a concept—their theorists even talk of a world vision—that combines the professions of medicine and dietetics. Their guiding principles are: absolute freshness of ingredients, lightness and natural harmony in the accompaniments, and simplicity in the cooking method. This means less fat, no flour liaisons, no indigestible mixtures, and no 'disguised' dishes. Instead, they advice light sauces based on meat juices, stocks, essences, and spices; vegetables prepared so that their natural flavors are retained; and rapid cool=king without fat, which allows the food to retain some of its texture. This entails dry cooking in the oven, or under a grill (broiler), steaming, stewing, cooking in a bain-marie, or cooking en papillote. Dieticians agree that quickly cooked food retains maximum nutritional value.
Food offered by the 'new cooks' includes crisp vegetables, resplendent in their natural colors, and elegantly trimmed, flanking thinly sliced meat; airy mousses accompany pink and firm fish; while vegetable purées become the stars of the culinary repertoire. Astonished gourmets scan their menus and find gigot applied to fish, not mutton; darne to meat, not salmon. They may also find gruels, rare produce, compotes not of fruit but of vegetables, and perhaps even soups as dessert.
While not discarding the wisdom of their predecessors, the new cooks are trying to widen their scope: for instance, Jacques Manière's eggs Céline, with caviar and a little vodka; Pierre Vedel's lobster soup with sweet garlic; Michel Guérard's aubergine (eggplant) purée cooked ins saffron-flavored steam; or Alain Senderen's calf's sweetbread in sea-urchin cream. All offer the diner strange, novel, exquisite, even nostalgic sensations. Sadly, it is only too easy for the exquisite to become ridiculous. In an effort to surprise, provoke and stimulate jaded palates, nouvelle cuisine sometimes oversteps the mark: the 'pink at the backbone' rule can mean fish oozing with blood; small vegetables become fragmented; and mousses and purées are added to every sauce. Although novel, such combinations can become pretentious.
I say yuck, gag me with a spoon !!!:)

I sho ain't kidding 'bout this:
(1) I have never-ever, even during the busiest times, found Waffle House employees not nice!
(2) And knowing the area within 5 miles or so where they are (contrast that with the average employee of a convenience store who are always--ALWAYS--clueless about where they are over 100 feet away--other than maybe Bombay)
(3) Give me a freaking Waffle House employee any day to your fanciest GPS unit
(4) And after Master Cramer's Fri show (7/14/06), here in the south, Cracker Barrel also have pretty nice folks
To Master Cramer: Just because breakfast is served anytime--BOOYAH--and the food is cheap--double BOOYAH--and the people are real and nice and well, genuine people--a triple BOOYAH
Master Cramer! I love and respect ya man, but you stay in N.J. and hang 'round the Trumps and Tony S. and I will stick with nice, simple folk, even iffen you make me a lot of Insane Money...

Waffle House, damn, I miss that.
I own a house in Camden County (GA). There were TWO Waffle Houses at exit 3 on I-95 within 3 miles of my house!
The IHOP in Maryland sucks and they close at 10. WTF is that? And their service blows.
Plus I nailed a Waffle House waitress in my hometown. That was her tip.

Remember why you have two WFs: to catch the major morning traffic in the main directions--Hey, how 'bout a WF IPO? I have pondered why not start a restaurant chain on the left side of the highways (opposite WFs) to catch the coming home traffic--sorta a Hooters stressing the food group of us Red Necks--I kinda like the name Skanks
IHOP! Jeez, ever since I found gum in my omelet I ain't had much use fer them thar folks--didn't say sorry much less give me a free meal--even serving 24/7 breakfast don't cut it fer me--and who tha heck wants a zillion kinds of pancakes when s/he can have a good greasey basic waffle sopping with thick syrup--gud lawd! I want my gut to be filled and my heart wanting to flee its cage and my arm going numb!
