    Ha. They've never tried my Mom's cooking.

    Or for that matter, the "bavarian family feast" that my "large" friends hauled me out to last week. shudder I was burping up nasty sausage and fondue taste for a day and a half. I don't think there was a vegetable of any kind in that whole restaurant.

    How much is it for just the dressing? I love creamy dressings.

    That's plain stupid.

    We don't eat cheese fries or ranch dressing in Australia.
    We have chips (fries) that are thick cut and we put tomato sauce on them.

    Is tomato sauce there the same as ketchup?

    They have bacon, as well as cheese. How the hell do you eat the ranch dressing? Do you slurp it with a straw while you devour the edible impersonation of diarrhea?

    I used to hang out in Philadelphia a lot. One of the local CHeese Steak kings was Pat's. In addition to their heart stopping sandwiches they had the meal to end all meals (and life as we know it.

    Mega Fries

    Fries, Cheese Wiz, Ranch Sauce, Cheddar cheese, Monterey Jack, and bacon.

    I never tried them, but just the thinking about them means an extra hour of cardio tomorrow.

    What gets me is the awesome blossom from Chilis which packs 203 grams of fat (probably most of it comes from saturated fat) and 6390 g of sodium on top of 2700 calories. That's disgusting and it's just the appetizer...someone could easily walk out of chilis having consumed 5000-6000 calories and 400-500 g of fat cuz you know if they order a fried greasy appetizer, they're not gonna get a salad, and after eating all that salt they'll probably be craving something with some sugar in it. Yikes!

    Yea, and the average american underestimates the amount of calories in food by quite a bit. Ignorance is bliss guess. When I was in college and ate a terrible diet, I could probably consume all that grease, now it makes me sick just thinking about it.

    Funny you mention about Chili's - I went there Saturday with a friend. I had a salad - avoided the onion thing. Thought I was being fairly good - I looked it up later and found the salad I had was loaded with fat! There was a ranch dressing on the side and some drizzled on that I avoided. There were tortilla strips in it. Between the tortilla and the chicken, that must have loaded on the calories and fat. Common misperception I think that when you are eating a salad you are being good - but that's only when you control what goes on/in the salad.

    What is the deal with ranch dressing? I never order anything like that. Is it particularly popular?

    I think ranch dressing is kind of a suburban thing. I don't get it either.

    The bacon on those fries kills if for me. I'll admit if it was just cheese and spices I'd eat some of that.

    Ranch dressing is an American condiment. The dressing is made of buttermilk or sour cream, mayonnaise, minced green onion, garlic powder, and other seasonings mixed into a sauce. Ranch dressing is one of the top two styles of salad dressing in the United States, together with blue cheese.

    In 1954, Steve and Gayle Henson opened a dude ranch near Santa Barbara, California, and named it "Hidden [i]Valley Ranch". As a side business, they sold to guests a special dressing that Steve had developed in Alaska. The dressing was popular, and they began selling bottles that guests could take home, and later opened a factory to sell packets of ranch seasoning that had to be mixed with mayonnaise and buttermilk (packets that are still available to this day). In 1972 the brand was bought by Clorox for $8 million.

    Clorox reformulated the dressing several times to try to make it more convenient. The first change was to include buttermilk flavoring in the seasoning so that home chefs only had to add milk rather than buttermilk. In 1983, Clorox developed a non-refrigerated bottled formulation, making it even more popular.

    Popularity
    In much of America, ranch is a common dipping sauce for things like french fries, chicken wings and other fried foods. This spread to other regions has been attributed to Denny's offering it as a choice with their meals for over two decades nationwide.
    [/i]

    Anyway here's what that famous or infamous source wikipedia, with me only slightly editing out the non-essnetial parts, has to say on the matter of ranch dressing. Since, well according to them it's up there with blue chesse, I'd say it's that creamy fattness that makes most go gaga, well that and a few millenia of genes attuned to deprivation.

    Small Chucky?!? Did you hear correctly or maybe you're in denial, okay, maybe I'm obtuse, but I don't think that's the usual adjective placed before your handle.

    Honestly I doubt that eating nor the lack of eating are either of your problems.
