Chewing the authenticity

I may be one of the few people in this country who is not excited about McDonald's serving breakfast all day. It seems to be The Wire of fast food. It's also been years since I've been inside one, and that was to reassess the Shamrock Shake.

And it sucked. The food I've avoided since reading Fast Food Nation so it has been at least ten years since I've had a quarter pounder. Sure I go to Wendy's, a company with their own challenges with their practices and White Castle a couple of times a year whether I need to or not. And they do plenty for autism awareness even if it is with autism speaks.

Of course that would change if my son gave a shit about happy meals, but that has not happened.

The teenager has recently lost his joy in swimming, which makes me sad. I'm also not sure how the horseback riding is really going since he's cut the last two sessions short. Maybe he does not like the saddle, they're going to leave it off this week.

Believe it or not, I tried my first Shamrock Shake at the age of 41 after my girls insisted that I try one with them. I took two or three sips and threw it away. I really tried to give it a chance, but it was awful!

Oh yes. Truly nasty. Perfume and old creme de menthe.

The shamrock shakes of now are much more GREEEN than the ones of my youth, which were basically vanilla & very pale green. :(

Very true, it's an unreasonable amount of dye. They were mintier then, that last one was garbage.
