Vegan MoFo: I Wish that I Had Jessie's Song


Here's the thing people.  Jessie Spano is an institution.  She was my first feminist idol.  The way she just ripped Slater apart.  That one time she did the swimsuit competition in a trench coat.  But, nothing, and I mean NOTHING exemplifies Saved by the Bell like the episode where she gets hooked on caffeine pills.

It's got everything.  Addiction!  The chance for a record deal!  GEOMETRY!  Girls in spandex singing about aerobics!  AEROBICS!  Aaaaah!  So, I figured the perfect SBTB menu had to be breakfast.  Not just because I love me some breakfast food.  Saved by the Bell was a Saturday morning staple as a kid.

Hot Sundae Pancakes: banana choc chip pancakes, vanilla ice cream, crushed pineapple, nuts, sprinkles, cherry
I GOTTA DANCE MENU
Hot Sundae Pancakes
Screech's Sizzling Breakfast Sausage (hehe)
The Max' Diner Hashbrowns

Sure, the pancakes are more like dessert, but who cares?!  Also, if you don't get the Screech sausage reference, please research Dustin Diamond's life after the show.

Why, yes, I own the entire series with the original cast AND the college years
Here's a little known fact: Jessie, Kelly, and Lisa had a girl group for this episode that was supposed to be the lady version of New Kids on the Block.  The name?  Hot Sundae!  Here's where I tell you to watch the video.

I am so obsessed with this episode that I once "wrote" a poem made entirely of dialogue from the episode.  I am so obsessed with this episode that I own this shirt.  I am so obsessed with this episode that I often refer to myself as Jessie Spano when I'm overly caffeinated.

So, grab your comfy spot on the couch and power through a good SBTB marathon.  And skip the mimosas.  Drank that sparkly straight out the bottle like you were at a Bayside High toga party!  Just don't go crashing Lisa's Mom's Mercedes!

I'm so scared...

Is it bad that I have no idea what you are talking about? But pancakes for dessert are totally in order.

I just aged more than I already am. I now feel hip and up to date on pop culture from your generation now. I used to drink like that only mine was out of a paper bag. Always kickass food here too!
