Conversation with 5Guys Scheduler

A female 5G scheduler called and asked me to do a dinner shop today. I told her my fee was $x. She said the last time I did the same location was for $x/2. I told her if I was going to eat all of those calories, I wanted to be well compensated. She said she would check with her manager.

I checked my email when I got home. Not only was I assigned the shop for the fee that I wanted, it was a milkshake shop.

That was my first milkshake from 5Guys. I got peanut butter and bacon.

Wow...just WOW!

Not my cup of tea but my FIL would think he'd died and gone to heaven. He eats peanut butter and bacon sandwiches frequently.
I have gotten bacon on my burger...yum, and a vanilla shake, and I said WOW, together, not sure about bacon milkshake, but glad you enjoyed it, now, hit the gym.

Live consciously....
I took two, brain freezing sips and tossed it (and the fries). Those two sips were heaven!

JAS, I used to work for a Hormel Company in Los Angeles (Farmer John). Our food chemist would come up with these creations every Tuesday, and invite a select few to try them. The peanut butter and bacon sandwiches were based on a new maple bacon.

The sandwich was honey roasted, chunky peanut butter, maple bacon, and whole wheat bread.

This was 15 years ago, and I remember the taste in my mouth. It was that good! Learn from your FIL!

Remember Grumpier Old Men? Son John wanted Pops to try the low-fat bacon and the less-bad beer,,,

(Dad, I wish you'd try the low fat bacon.)
"Well you can wish in one hand and crap in the other and see which one gets filled faster."

(John hands over a less-bad beer,)
"I weigh 90 goddamn pounds and you bring me this slop 'n foam!? Let me tell you something, Johnny. Every morning I wake up and smoke a cigarette. and I eat 5 strips of BACON!...For lunch a bacon sandwich...and for a mid-day snack BACON!! A whole damn plate.
...and I usually drink my dinner. "

Pops was ninety five, or ninety six, when God finally remembered him.


Aaaannnnnywaaayyyyyy..... you only live once. Why not try all the bacon and whatever flavors?

My husband's grandma was always after me to try turkey bacon because it was healthier than the regular bacon. I said no repeatedly and then tried it, and quickly regretted it. I hadn't been to the doctor in a couple of decades for anything major and decided to get a benchmark recently, went in for a physical. My cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, etc. are all just fine, go figure. Doesn't matter that I drink a lot of wine and eat chocolate and bacon (though not together) on a regular basis, LOL. It isn't going to kill me, apparently. Oh actually the wine and chocolate is an excellent pairing, though I haven't plopped cubes of chocolate in my wine glass or anything. Not going to put the bacon in the wine, either.

Sweet/savory is not my thing. Been there and tried that. I like what I like. Not knocking anyone else's tastes, they just aren't mine.
Chocolate and Peanut Butter is my go-to for Five Guys shakes. I try to take those jobs sparingly. LOL

I have a few sips of the shake during the shop, then take the rest home and put it in the freezer (no whip cream). Then, when I need a treat, I take a spoon and scoop out a spoonful or two of heaven. It's like chocolate peanut butter ice cream. The shakes usually last about 3 days and no longer. smiling smiley

Seems their thinking of new ways to get fat into your heart, maybe a conspiracy with Dr.s...no for me, bacon in a shake sounds downright nasty...and will (trust me) catch up with you in the long tun. Chocolate especially dark is the way to go, mixing with peanut butter would be my choice.

I had chocolate covered bacon at a fair once. It was surprisingly good! Bacon makes everything better.

Cali,

A peanut butter bacon milkshake wouldn't make it past the first traffic light.

That's why I tossed it before I got in my car.

.

I was under the impression that chocolate cured all evils. Do you mean to tell me some people think chocolate is bad for you? Doesn't it cancel out all the other bad things you eat with it?
How do you have the will power to throw a delicious shake in the trash for no reason whatsoever other than just to avoid the calories??? My mom instilled in me "clean plate syndrome". It has taken me years to leave food on my plate and put it in the microwave or throw away.
Salt and chocolate are a classic combination, ergo a bacon milk shake. I admit to never having tried it!
I haven't seen one of the milkshake shops, even though our 5Guys got a machine almost a year ago.

Last weekend we had a bacon festival (there's at least one festival going on every weekend down here from Memorial to Labor Day. There was bacon everything, but I had some restraint. My favorite food truck, the Cow & the Curd was there and those cheese curds, along with a a local IPA, were all I needed to bypass all of the other delicious looking bacon treats. My boyfriend, on the other hand, had one of just about everything.

Shopping the South Jersey Shore
I was skimming along too quickly and read that as the Cow and the Turd, LOL!!!!!

I think the IPA and cheese are a nice pairing. I can't remember ever eating a curd, though. I think Little Miss Muffett ate curds and whey, right? I think in Wisconsin they do fried cheese curds...

Irene, I think a lot of it must be genetics, because I eat bacon pretty regularly and I eat a lot of cheese and butter (though rarely do I eat red meat or fried food), so apparently there must either be something else I am doing that is preventing my arteries from getting clogged or I just inherited my Dad's superior cardiovascular system. I do eat a lot of veggies and salads, so maybe it's just a good balance of diet.
Ha! Now that would be an intersting food truck. It's a really cool story, they started with one truck and now have trucks all over the place and the people are the sweetest. I fell in love with cheese curds when visiting my brother's girlfriend (now wife) and I had them straight..lol..right out of the package and she used to bring me bags of them when she came to visit. I tried them fried at Yogi Bears campground and they've been my favorite guilty snack ever since! Also, almost everything pairs nicely with an IPA, an Imperial even better. smiling smiley

In some restaurants for busy breakfast days pans if bacon and sausage were left under the heatlamp for servers to add it to the orders that called for it. I snacked hard in those days! One perk of waitressing - free bacon. BACON-WRAPPED BACON! YESSSSSS!

When I go visit my brother in Houston I buy lots of bacon because his wife won't cook it for him due to the way that most pigs are raised. I try to get the "humanely raised" pork to mollify her, but my brother is always asking when I am going to come visit, LOL. Is it because I am his favorite sister? Am I his favorite sister because I always bring home the bacon?!!!!
Guess my Kosher upbringing didn't introduce me to bacon young enough, as we Jewish folks keeping kosher (health reasons) and not allowed to eat pig, cannot have it the house. I never have it my house, however, going out for breakfast now and then, I will indulge, bacon and eggs...delicious, that's as far as i go...whoops not true, bacon and tomato sandwich's are a win win. Not a lover of turkey bacon, so dark chocolate is my go too.
honny, throwing food away, OMG. I'd be guilty for my life...I drank Five Guys entire milkshake, and was never so satisfied, then didn't eat dinner.

I find that most restaurants (except the extreme upscale ones) give too much food. They even bring it to the table in platters! When I was a kid, those same size platters were used to hold food that an entire family would take individual servings from.

I can usually get at least two full meals from one 5 Guys burger and little fries. Even little fries (because they put extra in the bag) I have gotten so many fries that I've haven't had to buy frozen fries for years.

Some other restaurants (like a well-known burrito place) give serving sizes that I've been able to get three meals out one of their servings.

Unless the guidelines say otherwise, I take the extra home. I carry lidded containers and a portable ice pack with me everywhere.
When I get a milkshake I am practically licking the inside of the cup, LOL. I don't waste a drop. I will throw away most of the fries but the burger and shake? Uh...no way.
@JASFLALMT
You're right. In Wisconsin, you can get deep-fried cheese curds.
Our state fair prides itself on the ever increasing number of deep-fried items available at the different food vendors.
This includes DEEP-FRIED OREOS: battered, deep-fried, and sprinkled with powdered sugar. : )

After realizing this thread, I’ll be ordering a salad tonight..... perhaps some grilled salmon and steamed veggies? Water to drink... yes water.

There are many other resources! These two are user-friendly and present different views.

Apparently, bacon is not altogether bad or altogether good.

I'm making homemade pizzas (in the oven right now) with asparagus, green onion, roasted garlic, fresh crimini mushrooms, tomatoes, goat cheese, kalamata olives, fresh basil from the garden, pan seared chicken breast, mozzarella, and parm. All the cheese is heart stopping, but I really think it's the veggies that have saved my ass (literally) all these years.
We need some bacon recipes... something carbonara, something unique (got it! coffeequeen makes something lemon/blackberry and figures out where the bacon goes in the recipe), and something seasonal...

K. red white and blue something for the 4th of July. Blueberries, bacon, and white meat. But you are clever and can create something more interesting than that! C'mon, clever people......
