Karen has the latest Weekend Assignment at Outpost Mavarin...
Weekend Assignment #201: To promote a new cooking show, a TV station is going to pay you $500 to eat the same basic meal every day for a week, prepared with only minor variations by their on-screen host. What's on the menu?
I think I'd have to go with beef. From steaks to hamburgers, you'd have enough of a variety to keep from getting tired of it. And it's only a week.
Extra credit: Do you tend to eat the same thing all the time anyway?
Yeah. Sad to say. Breakfast is usually coffee, with an occasional bowl of cereal, Pop Tart, or egg. I usually have a piece of fruit or a fruit cup for a mid-afternoon snack. Lunch is usually eaten at work at most people's dinnertime and is usually a sandwich, chips and Little Debbie. I usually eat dinner late at night when I get home from work. This is usually whatever the wife has cooked or pizza or fast food burgers. It's usually different from day to day, but the same from week to week.
