Lunch today consisted of a Mythos bottled beer, which was a full bouquet of earthy flavors you would expect from a pale lager, and a hint at fruit after-tastes.
For an appetizer we had the saganaki(peppered Kassari cheese fried in olive oil), which I have found to be unparallelled. They won't set it ablaze in front of you, but it is the tastiest dish this side of the Pacific Ocean. Having sampled this dish in many a big city, I can say that this is the best I have ever had. For the main course, the gyros sandwich was the natural choice. The beef and lamb served here is not your average pressed product, it is sublime. The spices are so perfectly embedded in the mix that you will be left swaying a nd speechless. The tzatziki sauce is also special here, with a sharp flavor, yet cooled by the creaminess of the yogurt and cucumber blend. There is not a better meal to be had in Eugene. 5 GD stars. - Barnabus

The auction is here:
Feces Pretzel Auction
In 1960, McKee Foods founder O.D. McKee was trying to come up with a catchy name for their new family-pack cartons of snack cakes. Packaging supplier Bob Mosher suggested using a family member's name. Thinking of what could be a good fit for the brand, O.D. arrived at the name of his 4-year-old granddaughter Debbie. Inspired by a photo of Debbie in play clothes and her favorite straw hat, he decided to use the name Little Debbie® and the image of her on the logo. Not until the first cartons were being printed did Debbie's parents, Ellsworth and Sharon McKee, discover that their daughter was the namesake of the new brand.
The first family-pack was produced in August of that year and consisted of the original snack cake, the Oatmeal Creme Pie. Family-packs were one of the first multiple-item baked goods available with individually wrapped products. The cost per carton was only 49 cents. By combining a quality product with outstanding value, Little Debbie® quickly became a member of America's households. After its initial introduction, more than 14 million cakes were sold within 10 months. while the Oatmeal Creme Pie was the original Little Debbie® snack cake, there were 14 different varieties by 1964 including the ever-popular Nutty Bars® Wafer Bars and Swiss Cake Roll.
Since 1960, Little Debbie® products have remained a value leader. Currently, they sell for less than other leading brands while providing quality ingredients. More than 75 varieties are available with suggested retail prices ranging from 25 cents to $2.99. Little Debbie® products are available in all 50 states, Canada and Mexico
I will try to get a box of these today and give a de-briefing here on The FatPride Times ASAP.
