Paul and I love to watch Man vs. Food! And I think I may have just shocked Paul when I said that this looked good.....

Jethro's BBQ in Des Moines, Iowa-
Start with our huge pork tenderloin, add our Angus steak burger, top it with slabs of Texas brisket, apple wood bacon & fried cheese, finished with buffalo chicken tenders. We smother this mountain with melted cheddar cheese, and white cheddar sauce, serve it with your choice of side.

They also had these on the same episode. Looked Good! :o) (A Heart attack waiting to happen!)

High Life Lounge in Des Moines, Iowa-
Tator Tots wrapped with jalapeno slices and bacon then fried and topped with cheddar/jack cheese.

Kind of reminds me of the time we were in Vegas eating at the Grand Lux Cafe when my sister, Colleen was pregnant and she ordered this.....

The Max Burger
Our Chop House Burger Topped with Cheddar Cheese, Crisp Bacon, Sauteed Mushrooms, Onions and Roasted Short Ribs. Served with an Organic Green Salad or French Fries.

When I was pregnant with Rylee I wanted NOTHING to do with meat! Couldn't even look at a hamburger the whole time!! This time......SO different! :o)
