Choke and Pukes

One of the drawbacks to living in Alma, MI is that there are no White Castle restaurants in the area.  You would think that Mt. Pleasant, that "big" city to our north, would have a White Castle.  Nope.  They got everything else you could think of, and some things you couldn't, but no White Castle.

So, yesterday, while down south for the St. Michael Liturgical Conference, I knew what I would be having for dinner.  After the conference, on the way to my parents' house, where I would spend the night, I stopped at the White Castle I had frequented while growing up and picked up a sack of "choke and pukes" (five to enjoy last night and five more to enjoy this evening).  I know others refer to White Castle burgers as "sliders," but we call 'em "choke and pukes" where I'm from.  Either nickname is ill founded, of course, since they are oh so delicious.  Seriously, is there anything better than a sack of "choke and pukes"?  Mmmm!!!

Here's a pic I took last night of my wonderful meal.  If you move your nose close enough to the monitor, you may even be able to smell 'em! :)

I am *so* glad we don't have that in Mt. Pleasant!

Then again, if it got you up here regularly, it'd be worth it! :-)

You don't know what you're missing, dude! Them thar is some kind of tasty! :) As for getting me up there regularly, that only takes an invite. :) Seriously, let's do lunch soon.

That is so gross.

Gross? No way! The only thing that could make this pic more beautiful is a couple of Krispy Kremes on the side to wash the "choke and pukes" down! :)
