HOLY CRAP my mouth is on fiyahhhhhh

So pretty mellow day today, that is until I got a Grab-n-Go wrap that added some unnecessary spice to my day. Ordered the Buffalo Chicken wrap with lettuce, tomato, and blue cheese dressing (which they had to go dig out from the back, sorry for slowing things down!) but did not see the pain and suffering that followed. First bite was lovely, had a little of everything in it, but on bite two I was already feeling the heat. Like a hungry fool I kept going only to realize a few more bites later that my mouth was on fire. Way too much buffalo sauce (punishment for making her find some blue cheese?) resulted in much pain and suffering. My lips were numb, my tongue was throbbing, and I felt the burn go all the way down my throat. NOT COOL. Sad thing is, I will still get this wrap in the future but I have learned my lesson: ask for minimal sauce as to avoid another disastrous experience.

Nellie got the Godfather (an Italian-combo of sorts) on wheat bread, looked good, didn't cause her any distress so I'd say it was a success and a definite "get again."

Order has been restored in the Universe, we celebrate the return of our old friends, real plates, cups, and utensils. Amen.

We've been trying to use up our flex passes the past couple days and have been frequenting the Grab-n-go quite a bit. Here's our take on our favorite two:

Get Agains:
-Chipotle Chicken and Bacon, The classic, everyone and their mother has gotten this constantly "featured" wrap. Be forewarned though, they really like to go heavy on the Chipotle sauce, so have something waiting to console your mouth. I highly recommend nuking this wrap a bit before eating. The hint of melty cheese is a good touch.

-Buffalo Chicken Wrap with Bleu Cheese, L&T, We're big fans of ordering off the menu these days and this wrap is our 'hidden' gem. It does have it's faults though, for some reason the bleu cheese is very chunky, like boulders of bleu cheese hidden sporadically throughout. Nothing you can't flick out though, which honestly is a little fun. Depending on who makes your wrap the buffalo sauce might end up on a completely different end than your chicken, but that's on a wrapper to wrapper basis. All in all though, this is our favorite.

Enjoy the snow, and try not to study tooooo much!

Our first Chaugie's.

As the semester dwindles down, and the opportunities to spend our unused points lessen, we decided it was about time for a date with Chuck and Augie. For all the non Storrers here, Chaugies is the restaurant on campus, and it is BALLERRRRRRR. Here's the lowdown:

Get Agains: (Fricken Everything)

Chicken Slider Trio, It's like the best of 2 worlds, a fusion of all things awesome. The adorable quality of sliders, with the finger lickin' delectableness of the 3 best kinds of chicken sandwich. Honestly, we couldn't ask for more from a meal. Here's the ranking of the 3:

1. Barbecue Chicken with Cajun Asian Slaw, Perfection. It's only fault was that it was small, but it can't help if it slides. The sweet tangy sauce on the crispy chicken, with the ryhmeing dynamic duo of flavor of the crispy slaw made for a dynamite bite. It made me feel like singing.

2. Pepper-Jack Ranch, An all around solid chicken sandwich. The chicken was crispier in this one which was appreciated, and honestly, I've yet to find something with pepperjack on it that I don't approve of. It paired nicely with the caesar salad we ate too. (More to come on that front later)

3. Buffalo Chicken with BlueCheese and Tomato, It was fine, Salamander wasn't to hot on the twang of the sauce, but for what it was it was worthy.

Caesar Salad with Crutons and Aciago Cheese, Now, anyone who has eaten my mother's caesar salad can attest to how heavenly it is(Hi Mom!), so I have very high standards. Chaugies version satisfied my needs. The right amount of creamy dressing, an abundance of cheese, and plenty of croutons were the reason why we ate the whole thing(It was pretty large mind you). I'll probs get it again next time.

Pesto-Alfredo Penne, It's like Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny had a baby. Everything I love about the pasta world came together to make that dish. I wanted to bathe in it. The broccoli and tomato woven throughout added nice texture and that sauce was so creamy, my arteries might as well just shut the fuck down.

Bravo Chuck and Augie, well played sirs.
We look forward to seeing you in the near future.

Disposable Disturbance of the day: The reason man evolved and invented the coffee mug was so that he would no longer have to scald his hand when he wanted to drink coffee. We have sacrificed this advancement with the paper cup, and double cupping is now a necessity. THAT'S TWICE AS MUCH CUP WASTE! ARHH!HHHH!HHH!!!

Dinner 12/2

Not much to report on today, but we must make up for lost time and blog away... Hit dinner early tonight so we didn't have too too much to choose from, but we found good stuff nonetheless.

Get Again:
-The burger was very well done tonight, topped with pickle slices (awesome), a little onion, and ketchup (no BBQ sauce, but this was a nice change) it was a lovely choice with a trusty old friend.
-The mexi-fries were the best they have ever been. Period.
-The fajita chicken pizza was a surprising hit! Very tasty :)
-Veggies were spot-on tonight, excellent selection and very fresh.
-The ice cream was a dream to scoop tonight, such a good decision going back for a little!
-Mike Zakko claims the "shark" wrap was out of this world amazing, but I'm not so sure... I'll take his word for it.

No real Mehhs or Skip Its tonight, we played it pretty safe.

After some research, it has been determined that the reason we've been subjected to plastic silverware and paper plates is because the dishwasher is broken and it will cost more than $10,000 to fix it, therefore dining services has to place a bid. Apparently we will be using the disposable dishware for quite a bit longer, with the expectation of it not being fixed until after break. Besides the disgusting fact that we are slaughtering the environment, it is insanely annoying to use these disposables. Henceforth from now until the day that order is reestablished, we will be posting an inconvenience of the day regarding the disposable situation. Today's is:
-Have you ever tried eating a salad with a plastic fork? It's a losing battle.
