I Ate Sour Cream On Purpose

So I know this isn’t a huge goal for 99% of the world, but there are some foods that make me want to get sick just thinking about them. Sour cream is definitely one of them. So of course my girlfriend couldn’t resist making a southwestern-flavored dip that had two ingredients: the powder dip mix and a huge tub of sour cream. Just looking at it made me gag. Anyways, after watching her eat chip after chip of this dangerous concoction, I said screw it, it’s just food. I’ll admit I didn’t try much at first, but I ended up having several dippings of it.

My conclusion is, the dip was actually pretty decent. I could see myself eating it again someday, or another flavor with sour cream. I’m not sure what made me anti-sour cream, but I think I can handle it now. I was told it has no flavor and that it takes on the flavor of whatever it’s mixed with. That sounds legit and seemed to be somewhat true. But then I just have to ask, why do so many people use it as a topping? Like on Mexican food, why does anyone need a huge load of it on their burrito? I’ve heard because it cools the food down. Really? That’s your excuse for throwing a pound of white fattening stuff on already bad food? I’ll never get it. And I don’t plan on ordering sour cream when I go out to dinner, but in the rare case it ends up on my food, I think now I know I can deal with it.

DMT Cookout

DMT Cookout Laid Out Trucks

Last Sunday, Jeremy “Menace” Sellars set up a cookout for all of the DMT members and their families/friends. I showed up around 12:30, despite my leaking tranny. I stopped at Kroger on the way to get a ton of hot dogs, jalapeƱo cheddar mettwursts, hot italian sausages, ghost pepper salsa, jalapeƱo pickles, and some of Dave’s Insanity Sauce. I must say, I love hot stuff. Real hot stuff. But Dave’s Insanity Sauce is just out of control. My dad talked about it before, and he is a hardcore hot sauce guy too. Maybe you haven’t met him before. Let me introduce you to him. His name is Charles, aka Chuck. He’s a self-employed semi-truck mechanic who is amazing on the drums. Anyways, I swore I’ve had this sauce before, but I would think I’d remember something like this. I can say, this is in my hot sauce cabinet at home right now, and will likely only come out when people think they are up for the challenge to prove how they can eat any kind of hot sauce.

Me… Healthy… Seriously?

Yes, it’s true. I’m on day 26 of closely watching my caloric intake, fat, sugar, sodium, serving size, etc… It’s crazy I’ve done it this long. I’ve ate bad for at least 10 years. Maybe trying to “eat healthy” here and there, but nothing ever lasted. I’ve even been to the gym more the past month than I have in the past few years combined. If you looked at me, you would never guess I was overweight. Technically I am. I’m 28 years old, 5’7″ tall, and weighed in at 170. The most I’ve ever weighed. For my age and height, this is overweight. So you’d be surprised to know how many people are obese, and probably don’t even realize it. And the people who think they are “overweight” are really morbidly obese.
