Wendy’s Wednesday

For those of you who know me well, you know that I almost always go to Wendy’s on Wednesday night for dinner. It only makes sense. It is on the way from my office to the church building for mid-week Bible class and I often share a meal with friends who are also on their way to class.

Yesterday, I wrote a post about The First Hamburger with details of one of the leading candidates for the first restaurant to serve hamburgers on buns. At the end of the post I mentioned: “I think I will have a hamburger for dinner tomorrow night.”

And of course I did.

Wednesday at Wendy's - Double Stack Burger from Wendy's - Basic Burger

My normal order on Wednesday night is a Double Stack with a side of Chili. I like to just have a basic burger without a lot of extras. Just give me ketchup, mustard and pickles.

One of my blogger friends, Boomdeeadda, commented on my post yesterday and said that “Well, I’m sure you’ll make a yummy one.” Actually, this is very close to what I make when I make them for myself.

Occasionally, I do like to get a burger with a little bit extra on it. As long as the ingredients are fresh.

In-N-Out Burger - Double-Double - Fries - Coke - Hamburger

I do like a nice Double-Double from In-N-Out, but will only have it occasionally. It is nice to indulge once in a while, but not too often. I really like the fries at In-N-Out, but they have a lot of calories that I don’t need. I am actually amazed that at Wendy’s the Chili is only about half as many calories as an order of fries. I just looked it up. A small Chili is 210 calories and medium Fries are 420 calories.

Oh, back to the idea of a basic burger. You can read some of my thoughts about basic burgers in a post I wrote last June: Five Guys – Is it worth the price?

Now, for one more hamburger related thought. Have you been missing Wonder Hamburger Buns over the last several months?

Tomorrow they will be one step closer to returning as the Wonder Bread brand goes up for auction along with several other of the Hostess brands, including Home Pride Bread.

I hope everyone had a great Wednesday!

Steven
