How Fast Can You Get a Meal Out?
Here in Oklahoma, we have a drive in restaurant called Sonic. They used to claim they had service "with the speed of sound." Right. But, hey, it was a good place to go when you were starving (not literally, that was the carbohydrate addiction talking). Best of all, you didn't need shoes or makeup and no one cared if you wore your bathrobe rather than getting dressed. After all, you didn't even have to get out of the car. What could be easier?
These days, Sonic has nothing on the menu we can eat, except for that obligatory grilled chicken salad that everyone restaurant seems to offer. When I want something even faster than Sonic...even tastier than Sonic...even cheaper than Sonic...the 24/7 Low Carb Diner Plan comes to my rescue.
I grab a brunch casserole from the freezer. Conveniently, it is frozen in individual servings. Three minutes in the microwave oven, and it is ready to eat. Sometimes I top it with some salsa and extra cheese, as in the photo of Farmer's Feast casserole above. It is better than fast food. No shoes. No makeup. No problem. Oh, and no need to tip a carhop!
