Food Thread: The "Frork"...It Is Un-American And Clearly A Sign Of The End Times

frork.jpg

McDonald's Is Debuting a French Fry Utensil Called a "Frork" -- Yes, Really

It's an all-too-familiar scenario. A bit of ketchup drips from your hamburger onto your placemat, and you're left with only one choice: to use your fingers and a few French fries to sop up the mess.

McDonald's is here to change that with their new "uselessly useful" invention--a "frork." Basically, it's a fork. But instead of metal prongs, it sports three French fries.

Isn't part of the pleasure of the fast-food dining experience the joy of greasy, salty, ketchup-covered fingers that you stealthily wipe on your pants, or even better, wipe on the carpet on the passenger side of the car?

Who are these people?

What is a Beer Bar, and Why Are So Many Popping Up at Country Weddings?
I don't know the answer to the question, but in general, bars at weddings are very good things. Whether they are serving beer or cocktails or oysters, it is a fine place to meet that 2nd cousin by marriage and finally find out what the hell is up with his wife's teeth. Or if you are really lucky, the bride's hot, single, lonely friend who just broke up with her long-time beau and is desperate to forget him, especially because he is a groomsman and his "plus one" is the bathing suit model he dumped her for.

Franklin Barbecue
Austin, TX

What can we say? Sometimes the king deserves to wear the crown. Franklin BBQ is an obvious choice, sure, but any meathead would be hard-pressed to find anything that stands up to its slow-smoked brisket. Not to mention the Texas sausage: links of pure heaven. And the turkey! Not a dry bite on it. The slaw, the beans, the potatoes -- these guys all check out, but it's really all about the protein here. Nobody starts lining up at 6 a.m. for cole slaw. No, we're here for the meat, and the Franklin abides.


I love that style of sausage, but it is surprisingly difficult to find anywhere outside of Texas. There is a solid BBQ place in NYC called "Hill Country" that makes a passable version, but I have never had anything that approaches the best of Texas. I am often tempted to make them for myself, but don't let the cooking shows fool you; making sausage is a skill not easily acquired. I have done it, and the end product, while tasting okay, was reminiscent of some 1950s horror movie props.

From "artisanal'ette," who sends me great stuff, but sometimes I'm not sure whether she is trolling me. I suspect this one just hooked a Dildo. Treat Your Mom with Foodie Favorites for Mother's Day has some cute stuff, but some of the suggestions are just a bit on the "what the fvck?" side.

Here's another one from artisanal'ette, but this one is not a troll....I think. Moms Share Their Favorite Menus.

11 OT note-thanks to everyone who prayed for me. I had two performances today of my one woman show, and they went well. The second performance had a very large crowd-more than Ii have ever had at a show, and my friend gave me roses afterwards which was very sweet of her, And on a food note, they had a luncheon beforehand (I don't like to eat to much before I perform (and I didn't sit in with them) but they had fruit and lovely little tea sandwiches-one
was cream cheese mixed with green olives and pimentos, which I had never had before but it was very good.

23 Oh my, those foodie gifts for mom are terrible!!!

How about you instead take her out for brunch or dinner (preferably not on Mother's Day when these places are crowded).

Or how about you get her a gift certificate to Sur La Table, Crate and Barrel or Williams-Sonoma where she can buy something more useful than that stupid tea mixing set?

Think the writer may not like her mom....

26 Why is the frork so distressing to us? Because a real fork is like a phallic symbol. It is always erect, it always penetrates. But a frork has impotent, flaccid penises made of French fries instead of prongs, that cannot penetrate anything. I suspect the men are horrified, the women dissatisfied by the frork.

The goat's milk caramel stuff is a bad enough idea to start with, but I wouldn't buy anything from a place called Fat Toad Farm even if it was Hanson dipped in chocolate.

I always like artisanal 'ette's lists that she sends you, CBD. And when it's a Southern Living, you know it's bound to be especially good.

34 I ate at some BBQ place in Houston, looks like a converted gas station, called Freds or something, and they had a tray of meat like that. Two pounds of meat for, I think, $12.

Speaking of lots of meat, I went to the grocery the other day to get some steak and found a value pack of sirloin that was marked down 50%, it was $4 a pound for 3 pounds. Picked up both packs they had.

35 The phucking frork seems to be a toss-in for those "too old" for the toy in the McBox (or whatever) meal for kids. You pay a super McPrice for a premium McSandwich, then you're going to want some sort of a bonus item. Like the nicer key chain with the purchase of a Mercedes.

61 Food Thread! Wooo!

It's getting really close to bbq weather, (I was going to smoke a couple pork roasts today, but it's cold and rainy, so that project is delayed for a few days).

So instead...Cheddar Cheese soup.

Start with 1/4 cup shortening, and a few tablespoons of bacon grease. Heat on low until melted. Add three teaspoons of powdered chicken stock, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp white pepper, (if desired). Add 1/2 cup flour, mix well, heat for about 2 minutes, until lightly browned, and bubbly.

You'll need about four cups of milk, (and likely a cup and a half more on hand), heated to scalding in the MW. Add a cup at a time to your roux, whisking constantly.

From this point on, constant whisking.

I use one pound bags of shredded sharp cheddar cheese, for convenience, but you can shred your own for this if you prefer.

A handful of shredded cheese at a time, whisk, whisk, whisk, until it's all melted, and completely incorporated, repeat until you achieve the consistency you desire. Taste, and add salt as needed, reduce heat, and serve.

The soup will thicken as it sits, so be prepared to whisk in additional milk, (and add about a tsp of salt per cup of added milk).

To this you can add a number of different ingredients. Grilled onions blended with a bit of chicken stock. Cooked broccoli, or cauliflower. Cooked potatoes and ham, or bacon. Prepare it thick and use as a sauce, or dip.

Or...add unflavored gelatin to the basic soup, pour out in baking sheets, let it set, then cut into slices for grilled cheese sandwiches.

He told a good food joke.

Guy goes to a zoo in Louisiana for the first time with his friend. At most zoos, there are 2 plaques, one with the Latin name of the subject, kingdom, genus, species, etc. Then there is a second with the common English name for the critter.
In Louisiana, however, a third plaque is there on the display. He asked his friend what the third plaque is for.

Cousin's in Fort Worth is my favorite BBQ joint. No waiting, the brisket is something the angels would rejoice to partake of, and their Texas Sheath Cake is a glorious indulgence in chocolate and butter. No Gainzzz except the weighty ones!

They come delicious on a Traeger following the Traeger instructions and using the Franklin simplistic rub (lot of coarse pepper and little kosher salt) and Franklin worstershire/water spray before foiling. Takes forever to hit 205 but you can't stop short. waiting for the probe to move from 203 to 205 degrees takes forever.

He told a good food joke.

Guy goes to a zoo in Louisiana for the first time with his friend. At most zoos, there are 2 plaques, one with the Latin name of the subject, kingdom, genus, species, etc. Then there is a second with the common English name for the critter.
In Louisiana, however, a third plaque is there on the display. He asked his friend what the third plaque is for.

"A recipe".

I wish I could indulge in a Hate Shake, but I am rather obsessed with their grilled chicken sandwich and the kale salad. Since I can't have dairy, this is pretty darn good. I could give or take their waffle fries. McD's fries are better, but if they are allowing their idiot millenial social media jerks to tweet out hate against PDT, then Chick Fil A can just have more of my business.

Texans have the most marvelous chicken place called Chicken Express. I've waxed nostalgic about it before, but I would seriously move back there just for their chicken tenders and fried okra. Mercy.

186 My personal favorites at Chick-Fil-A ---other than the holiday and peach hate shakes of course ---are the grilled chicken club and the grilled nuggets.

The GC club has bacon and cheese in it but is smallish, just right for me, and therefore not obscenely caloric.
The (unbreaded) nuggets are great for low-carb dieters.
I actually like them more than the regular ones.

And I agree with Moki that their "Superfood" salad is really, really tasty.

199 I live near a Texas BBQ joint named Stanley's - while not quite a Franklins, Texas Monthly did put it on the best 50 bbq joints in Texas, which is no small thing considering the thousands and thousands here. It's operated continuously since 1938, I think.

Anyway, all of their food is great, but their turkey is what really stands out, and what that writer said about Franklin's turkey holds true for Stanley's, too. Turkey can be a delicate meat to cook correctly, and most places are scared of undercooking it, so they overcook it and you get some dried out crumbly result which isn't that good. Every bite of Stanley's turkey - even the thick slices, or I should say especially the thick slices - is saturated with moisture and that deep rich smokey flavor - it is absolutely heavenly, and even in good bbq places, it is rare to find a place who can consistently cook that kind of meat that well. I often go by and pick up a couple of pounds, sliced, just to have in my fridge for a while.

The verdict: You will not be able to get this utensil. You will receive some sort of discount if you buy one of their 'signature sandwiches' which seems to be the purpose of the promotion. During an extremely limited period. They get 'buzz'.

213 My favorite Cajun sandwich was a po-boy I got in New Iberia - it was a fried soft shell crab po-boy, and I love soft shelled crab so I could resist. Thing (for those not familiar, the po-boy is pretty much what you call a sub in the rest of the country) So they put on the lettuce and the remouloude and the sliced tomato and then just slap the whole great big fried crab in to between the two pieces of bun, long legs hanging off both sides. It looks to all the world like you're eating some kind of giant fried bug with lettuce, onions, and tomato when you put it up to your mouth.

And it tasted fantastic!!!! What can I say, that's Cajun food in a nutshell.

My takeaway from this is that McDonald's wants to participate in the #FakeNews phenomenon perpetuated by the main stream media, even mainstream it. This utensil is a fraud. They do not intend to make it available to customers in the quantity that might be requested. They will offer some inferior substitute.

The only responsible response, in my opinion, is for every one of the 60 million Trump voters to avoid McDonald's for the next century. Or two. Depending on your health care plan.

Burger King used to have a conveyor belt of goodness. Allegedly 'char broiled' hamburgers passed over the flames. You could smell the goodness from a block away. Lines were often outside the door.

Some highly trained employee would slap a burger on one end of the assembly line. Another highly trained employee would remove the burger from the other end of the assembly line. Other highly trained employees would pick up the burger and add ketchup, mustard, pickles, whatever... and throw it on a bun.

Back when America was great.

Self-rising flour can sub for the flour, baking power and salt in the brownie pudding recipe. Texture may be lighter, because it has less gluten than all-purpose flour.

Self-rising flour makes some cake or quick bread recipes taste over-salted. Probably not this recipe, though.

That brownie pudding is made a lot like a clafouti ( a type of cobbler), but with cocoa instead of fruit.

347 Heh. As lazy as we're getting, Ronco's new key to riches might just be to invent a chewing machine that pre-chews our food for us and then just injects it (I almost said squirts it, but that made me cringe) into our mouths.

No, there's two women nutritionists in Brazil who devised a way to bake bread out of dried cockroaches. It was on a MisHum weird news thread a few months ago. Their reasoning was horseshit. There is no compelling reason for anyone to eat that crap. I wouldn't make John the Baptist eat that.

354 McDonalds has no sense of history. They have forgotten their roots. In the days before really fancy interiors in cars, when leather was something that only RR and Bentley sported, there WAS carpet. Just like the shag carpet down in the basement that got pieced together to muffle the sounds of tiny little feet and pool balls bouncing off of the cement. I'm not giving them an extra nickel for something that my remaining fingers can do better and with more utility. 200K years of evolution, the ability to dig into the marrow of a bone with a digit, is always going to beat out a Frork!

You can see three (or more) cultures in Switzerland. There was a mosque bombing in Zurich a while ago, but there isn't really a takeover there. Minaret height is typically limited, for example.

Switzerland is more about scenery than culture. Though some of the food in the Italian part of Switzerland is pretty darn good. It's kind of like Italy with a sense of order.

379 Switzerland is where everyone must serve, and yodel, or be dragged behind a perfectly smiling cow that is on it's way to a small, exclusive, shop to give cheese. But, hey, the streets are really clean, so maybe it is worth the hassle of never being able to snuff out a smoke on the sidewalk without being lynched.

381 Honeysuckle Ice Cream

4 cups milk
2 cups heavy cream
2 cups sugar
1 cup egg yolks (about 12)
3 cups picked honeysuckle blossoms (about 1.5oz)

Combine milk,cream and sugar in large heavy bottom sauce pan.Heat milk mixture over medium heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved and milk is hot to touch. Place eggs in a bowl and slowly whisk milk mixture into egg yolks a little at a time. Return milk and egg mixture to pan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly w/wooden spoon until mixture becomes thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Remove from heat. While mixture is still hot, add honeysuckle flowers and allow to steep for 1 hour. Strain mixture and freeze in ice cream machine according to manufacturers instructions.

yields 1/2 gallon...keep flowers in ziploc bag in fridge until ready to use.

Yes, the sense of order can be a tad stifling in the German part of Switzerland. And some of the cheese is really good. (Also true in the Italian sector). If you can get invited to a mountain village, you can see them driving the cows home for milking, bells and all. Still.

Swiss chocolate in Switzerland is better than the Swiss chocolate they ship here. I recommend visiting a truffle shop.

For over-the-counter chocolate in Switzerland, try the Double Cream in the black and white checked wrapper with the red rose. Kind of like a dark milk chocolate, but with cream instead of chocolate.
