You know, the perk of having an Every Day with Breakfast Chick-fil-A should be that I write my post earlier in the day when my mind is fresh, not run amok with the day’s grind of thinking, analyzing, problem-solving, jesting, posting to Facebook, emailing, and every other mindless, er, mindful activity. And yet, here I am, almost 9:00 p.m., up since 5:00 a.m., Chick-fil-A in my belly since 10:30 a.m., and I still haven’t finished my post.
Time management, my friends. It’s a journey, not a destination. Don’t think I’ll ever watch myself get there – okay Phil Dunphy, settle down.
Now this morning I had a meeting with a group of brothers who meet secretly and I’m not at liberty to say where, when, or who’s involved. Don’t worry NSA if you’re reading this blog – when you read this blog – nothing you need to worry about. Harmless stuff.
The point is, I thought my Trinity Chick-fil-A would be open at 6:00 a.m. to serve me so that I could get to my secret destination on time, so this was what my neighborhood looked like when I left:
And this is what the Trinity Chick-fil-A parking lot looked like when I arrived:
In the words of Homer Simpson: “Doh!” Apparently they don’t open until 6:30. Lesson learned.
In all honesty, it was the sovereignty of God keeping me in check. I had intended on going to my secret meeting to rub my VIP status right under a few fellas’ noses, so I can’t say my motives were exactly the purest.
But when I returned at 10:00 am and was greeted for the first time by Austin, my motives were as pure as a Michael Jordan jumpshot – ready to stuff my face with some Chick-fil-A breakfast!
This was the first time I’d met Austin. Nice young lad. Seemed excited to take my VIP card – but I promise you, he wasn’t nearly as excited as I was to give it to him.
I’m working my way through the menu, as you know, and got to try something (again) that I would’ve never, ever, ever tried if it weren’t for Every Day with Chick-fil-A. The #3 Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit meal with hash browns and a small coffee. Honestly, I’m really not even sure why Chick-fil-A is selling this, other than that they’re trying to capture a little Mickey D’s market share, and I’m sure they’re successful at it too.
According to the Chick-fil-A website, the Bacon, Egg & Cheese Biscuit consists of: Delicious strips of smoked applewood bacon along with a folded egg and cheese served on a freshly baked buttermilk biscuit.
Total Cost: $4.94
Nutritional Content of the Biscuit, hash browns and coffee:
14g Saturated Fat
0g Trans Fat
So how was the Biscuit? Honestly, it was okay. Nothing to write home about, but certainly edible. I have not had anything similar in literally 5+ years, so it felt a little strange. I’m not crazy about the eggs and cheese, but the biscuit and bacon were good. The bacon was probably the best drive-thru bacon I’ve had, so it’s got that going for it, which is nice.
Final Every Day Rating: I’m going to go 7 out of 10. This was probably one of my least favorite items, primarily because when I go to Chick-fil-A, I want me some chicken! But the bacon was deece (that’s Phil Dunphy hip for “decent”), and the hash browns – ooooooohhhh, the hash browns.
See you tomorrow. Hopefully before 9 p.m.
