Weekend Threesome – 10/10/21

It wasn’t the most interesting week of my life, and I’m not going to make it sound like it was.  But I have a regular feature to deliver anyway, so here’s three short tidbits for this Sunday’s Threesome…

My search for something different I can make for my after work meal last week had me searching through the freezer bunker looking for the “still needs to be cooked” chicken strips my Mom would get from Sam’s Club sometimes.  While I failed to find an old favorite, I sure as hell managed to find a new one…

Don’t shoot! You know those strips are 0% chicken, right?

They were so fucking good, I bought another bag of them the next day… and then freaked out when its spot was empty when I went back to work this past weekend!  Luckily, I was able to procure three more bags of the magical strips on Monday morning… by which time it finally hit me WHY I liked those strips so much.

They’re exactly the same kind of strips they used to sell at Burger King!!!!

Only not delivered to your table by a creep in a crown.

Burger King flirted with selling chicken strips off and on last decade… I think the last time they offered them was sometime in mid-2019, yet for some reason refused to make them a permanent menu item.  But those things (along with BK’s fries, which are among the best in the fast food industry) were absolutely delicious!  And now, thanks to Mecca, I don’t have to overpay the King for chicken strips should they ever decide to bring them back again…

To show you how hard up I am for tidbits this week, here’s a fun calendar fact inspired by today’s date!

In any given year, April 4, June 6, August 8, October 10 and December 12 will all fall on the same day of the week.  Yes, that’s 4/4, 6/6, 8/8, 10/10, and 12/12… and this year, those dates all fall on a Sunday.

But wait…. there’s more!

May 9, July 11, September 5 and November 7 also fall on that same day as the repeating even dates in a given year!  That’s 5/9 & 9/5 and 7/11 & 11/7.  All Sundays….

Aren’t you glad you know that now?

You’re well on your way to becoming vastly intelligent!

And speaking of 10/10, if memory serves me correctly, today is Draliman’s birthday.  The Nest wishes a happy anniversary of birth to a fellow demented mind, and one of our most tenured and loyal readers…

Awww, you already opened your gift!

  1. Happy Birthday Draliman……….you’ll love those baby possums! Chicken strips? Never had ’em………I do fry chicken around here about once a month but if your chicken strips are THAT DANGED GOOD maybe I should try them. Save me a lot of grease and flour, etc. Thanks too for the interesting (cough) calendar facts – I fell asleep a couple of times during those sentences but I’m SURE I enjoyed reading them.

    • Well, my tastes are a bit peculiar… so I won’t be writing culinary advice columns anytime soon. But those strips are one of the few fried foods I don’t like BURNT, so that must cout for something!

    And you even pulled out my “favourite” possum pic ahem…
