A lot of times the URLs for Google image pictures do not have an image extension (eg: .jpg, .gif, .png), like that one above, which may be why the RP editor cannot render them.

That's a funny one: you can't really see the chicken and why did they put those fries on top of the sandwich?  I usually like Chicken Club sandwiches; that one looks like it might be okay but it is an odd photo.  Is that from a restaurant near you?
 

Yeah it's local. I was frightened by the sprouts, and the stray bits of black flecks of mystery*. We gave this place the cover photo on our annual restaurant (glossy) guide and despite sending a pro photographer, they couldn't manage to create an appetizing arrangement. Argued with the photog who wanted more fries on the plate, wouldn't replace the burger bun despite a large thumbprint where the cook had grabbed it to plate it. Melted the cheese to the point that it looked like bodily fluids...
 
*I knew a guy in The Black Flecks of Mystery but he OD'd some time ago.

Jeez, they're not even rolled up that well...

 
I predict that 3 of those will come out in saleable condition. But it makes me think I'll be making some cinnamon rolls this weekend. I made pizza a few days ago and I just throw ingredients together at random (really should write down a recipe) and the crust came out way more bread-roll texture than chewy pizza crust texture. So I should have a go at it while I still have a vague recollection of what I did. That's the great thing about bread: You don't put anything in it that tastes bad so it's going to come out okay, with some texture variance.

That's odd.  Unless doing a pictorial for a recipe, why would someone show uncooked food - especially a restaurant?  I thought maybe that was braciole at first, but it's sliced too thick for that and it's supposed to be tied.  Jeez, whatever they are they're not even rolled up that well...

It's Friday again, so here's the fish. Is it just me or does it look like Pac Man is having second thoughts?
