But Does It Come with a Shovel?

Appetizer and entree (r.)
Little wonder Americans are fat. Pictured above is what constitutes an appetizer at a notorious eatery somewhere down the highway between here and the Canadian border. Buried under that brick of cheese food are enough nachos, beans and chicken to feed the 1950's nuclear family of four plus the family dog. Now it's considered to be a single-serving prelude to more food to come.

What the hell is that?

Seriously. I can't tell. It looks like just a mound of dairy product. I had to re-read it a few times to finally be convinced they were in fact nachos.

Behold! The power of cheese.

To me, the blueberries on your header look much more inviting -- but most Americans would go for the nachos, I'm afraid!
My antidote to the american diet is that I've started cooking more international food (this week it's Africa), and it's serving as great lesson to how much more modestly most of the world's population lives....
Who knows, they may end up staging a revolt!?!

Wow, I'd forgotten what US truck-stop food or greasy-spoon diner food is like... oof-da.
