Nerds in my oatmeal

The COVID-19 era has landed me in a position I never could have imagined. I jokingly call myself “School Lunch Dad” nowadays when people ask what I “do” (other than driving in circles). Of course, my new title is kinda real…most of my daily responsibilities surround my daughter and her virtual schooling, which I will share MANY thoughts on…later. Mostly I make her meals and snacks. She’s a pretty good student, even on a Chromebook. She must get that from her Mom!

Today, as I plopped down on the couch for my late morning oats (I make us both an egg centered breakfast MUCH earlier each morning), I saw this empty box of Nerds…just sitting there…on the couch. We’re still working on the whole “clean up” idea around here—and by “we” on that topic, I’m definitely included. Later, I let her know I was throwing the box away for her. She protested heavily. It’s a nice box apparently.

Anyway, I found myself briefly wondering if some weirdo on the Internet (it’s true, I’m not woke enough for such nonsense) may have actually tried Nerds in oatmeal. Turns out, maybe (?) not!

* I have never put Nerds or any other candy (other than raisins if you consider Sun Maid “Timeless & Trusted” California Sun Dried Raisins as candy) in my oatmeal.

WTF Nando’s!?

• I love Nando’s

• I love outdoor dining

• I love Rio

But P L E A S E give me real flatware, a stack of napkins, and the soda machine (paper cups are fine I guess).

Livers and wings have been in every order I’ve ever placed here. But you’re out? Not cool. At all. Oh yeah and corn. Corn would be good.

Seriously, I get that the community sauce jars are not a great idea during a pandemic, but you’re obviously washing the plates and bowls with a high temp commercial dish machine, so why not real flatware? I understand the touch screen soda machine might be a bad idea, but also why no kids apple juice?

Huge fail. You can do better. The end.

Starbucks Breakfast Wrap, Receipts I Never Wanted, and Our Not So New Normal “No Problem” Culture

Seeing this new “wrap” on the Starbucks drive thru sandwich menu raised both eyebrows for me before coffee. Without noticing the price was a little higher than the normal Starbucks breakfast sandwiches and that this “wrap” combines bacon and sausage (I like both, but not together), my decision was made by simply looking at the picture on the menu.

Opening the VERY hot Starbucks branded microwave bag removed any hope of this “wrap” being low-carb along with the advertised 27 grams of protein. The “wrapper” is more like the pita bread you would get at a kabob place than the expected flatbread or tortilla like most wraps. I love bread. I just thought I was getting more of a wrap.

The ingredients are not tightly “wrapped” at all, so be cautious eating. You may end up with egg and sausage falling out. Bacon is in full strips and not at all crispy, so an entire rubbery strip of fatty bacon could easily slide out in one bite—especially if you’re as ravenously hungry as I was when this thing was finally cool enough to chow down.

The bread/wrap component is very well sealed though. Like completely. This thing is probably made by machine. A “wrap” is rolled up and tight. This thing is not that kind of wrap. If you’re okay with a loose, floppy wrap or looking for a serious bread fix, you might really like it!

Red’s Eats

You will sit through 20 minutes of traffic. Then you will wait in line for 20 minutes while traffic crawls past you in a sometimes deafening roar. Then you will shell out $14 for a lobster roll. Then you will be truly happy. They claim to have the best lobster roll in all of Maine, and I believe them.
