Ruby's Is Just Alright With Me

Sorry for the lack of food pictures lately.  Haven't really been trying many new places lately.  But here's some stuff for ya - Bacon-Swiss burger from Ruby's Diner:

Ruby's is one of those places that's usually solid if not a little underwhelming.  I mean, their food is good...but it's nothing to go ape-poop over.  Maybe I should have gotten a shake.  I had one of their strawberry shakes once and it was really good.  Also, their double burgers?  The patties are smaller than the ones they use for the singles.  What kind of a crock is that?

And here's an egg salad sandwich from the Mt. Soledad Market & Deli with some kind of novelty Ruffles that tastes the same as every other bag on the shelf:

Oh hi, non-photogenic potato chips

The quasi-interesting thing about the Mt. Soledad Market is that every month or so their Ruffles selection changes with some sort of new outlandish flavor.  The above chips are flavored as "Baked Potato".  There was another new flavor that was "BLT".  Yes, chips flavored as a bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwich.  It's almost like the Joker is employed over there at the Ruffles factory and is just making chips out of whatever he has for lunch on that particular day. And the thing is - they all taste the same.  They all taste like barbecue, with the exception of those cheeseburger flavored chips.  Those were just nasty.  Or maybe it was something else, I don't really remember. 

And, well, since we're on the topic of weird, here's a sandwich I made recently:

Oh hi, bright colors

So what we have here is a sliced turkey sandwich topped with summer sausage and three types of cheese (Havarti, Gouda, and mild cheddar).  And then there's the fruit and those cheese puffs which are really frickin' addicting.  A filling sandwich to say the least.  I'm not sure all of the flavors go together in traditional cooking, but I'm not a traditional person.
