Hey Momma P, Your Fries are KILLIN' ME!

The Worst Food in America
Outback Steakhouse Aussie Cheese Fries with Ranch Dressing
2,900 calories
182 g fat
240 g carbs

It's the caloric equivalent of eating 14 Krispy Kreme doughnuts, before your dinner arrives. Even if you split this "starter" with 3 friends, you'll have downed a meal's worth of calories.

Just so that everyone understands why I posted a blog about this, you need to understand that everytime my family goes out to eat, it's usually to a little place called Outback. At the beginning of every meal, we somehow polish off 2 or 3 of these Calorie Bombs. I guess I would prefer to eat the 14 Krispy Kreme Donuts as mentioned in the article I found this stuff on. So now that I've exposed my famiy's dark little secret, what are yours?

I guess it's no irony, now that we have started a family "Biggest Loser" competition, that we are all trying to slim our LardButts.

Thanks Outback!

What is that scripture about satan lulling us into carnel security and carefully slipping us down to hell??? It must be lined with Outback french fries dripping in Ranch dressing and cheese..ooooh...soooo...tasty! But God says that there is no temptation greater than you can bear and has therefore provided us with McDonalds fries which only have a 1/4 of the calories!
