But it’s true! I still don’t quite know why I did it but I did!
I needed to fetch Pete at the airport and it was one of those awkward times when the flight lands right at dinner time and taking into account we live a good 30 minute drive away from the airport plus I had a boot full of groceries to unpack when we got home and with Pete having dinner on the plane, I needed to fill the gap in my tummy, knowing full well I would not last until getting home and having to still cook.
Judge me if you must BUT I found myself at the McDonalds drive through! After much discussion with the voice in the black box where I had to place my order I finally settled on a Mc Royale and fries. I thought it best to opt for the Mc Royale as it includes salad ingredients. If I am going to consume such highly processed food I best try and balance it with something healthy.
Here’s the big shock… I quite enjoyed it. It wasn’t as “cardboardy” as I thought it would be and the fries were nicely salted and crispy. Will I go back – probably not but as a once off it was great.
While I sat in the car munching on my burger and fries, it was concerning to see how many overweight people were driving up to the window to place their order and how many young girls on their own were doing the same thing. Funny how I never took into account what they would have thought of me, especially seeing as I was wearing my pearls.
It was a dirt cheap meal at R40 and wonder if this is half the attraction of going to McDonalds.
Have you eaten at McDonalds before?
