That does look disgusting, doesn't it? Why must everything be deep fried? :wacko:

That does look pretty nasty. And what about the fried green beans? Do you suppose people actually eat that stuff? :blink:

No, cheese fries with bacon and downing in real ranch dressing sounds good in a "but it would probably kill me" sort of way...

Deep fried mac and cheese just goes against all that is holy :P

They both sound good to me right now--guess it's been too long without real junk food! God help me, sometimes I just plain miss the stuff :D

Hmm.. deep fried mac and cheese looks exactly like something I would want to eat :lol:

And that leads me to why I'm thankful to be a celiac... No matter how much I want to put junk like that in my body, it's not an option...

I don't think I would want to go to dinner with people who would be ordering Fridays new appetizers though. That would be rough...

How the heck do you fry mac n' cheese?!!! Or better yet, why? LOL!!

I do however miss the mac n' cheese from Chat n' Chew. It's this place in NYC that I used to go with my friends all the time. It has total comfort food, and it was just out place we would go when we just wanted a laid back girls night. Actually it is where I told my best girlfriends I was engaged and asked them to be my bridesmaids! I have dreams about their mac n' cheese. :(

Kris, you can still have cheese fries, just make them yourself at home. If you're in the US, you can use Ore-Ida fast food fries, Kraft shredded cheddar cheese, Hormel black label bacon, chopped green onions, and Kraft brand ranch dressing on the side. You can also add chili, I know there are a few safe canned brands. It may not be as simple as going out and ordering it, but this way you can season it as you like and it will taste better.
