While the US economy seems to be on the rebound, many folks are still trying to make their dollars go as far as they can.Â How do I know this?Â Because that is the only reasonable explanation why people continue to take junk food and turn it into something they call â€œfancy.â€Â As first chronicled here, the site Fancy Fast Food takes fast food and tries to turn it into good looking dishes via theirÂ â€œextreme makeovers.â€Â Â Their most recent switcheroo: Carlbonade Flamande c/o Carlâ€™s Jr.Â Yuck.Â
Now, along comes another effort, this time with food you can find in a vending machine, or offices in general.Â Called Office Snack Gourmet, the post names â€œrecipes designed to turn even the most disgusting of office snacks into delicious gourmet meals.â€Â Charming.Â How about these delicacies: Twinkie Napoleon?Â Truffled Berry Praline Purses?Â 3 Cheese Chilequiles? (above)Â Gag.
Am I off base?Â Judge, and test, for yourself.
