Big Mac and Big Xtra have Big yum factor.

At work, for some kind of fundraiser, some department was selling things. Cheap. There were power tools, gift certificates for local food emporiums, dinner with the Big Cheese, and lunch with some smaller cheeses.

I decided to spring for the McDonald's Dinner For Two coupons. They cost $2.50 each and with that, the purchaser received two Extra Value Meals for free. Biggie-sizing still cost a little extra.

Wednesday night Suz made a quiche, which contained broccoli, eggs and air. That combination doesn't agree with my tastebuds, so I decided to use one of my McDonald's coupons.

I looked over their menu and decided on the Big Mac Combo as well as the Big Xtra Combo. (I don't think an Egg McQuiche Meal would taste too yum.) For my drinks I chose iced tea, and my most favourite brown carbonated beverage - root beer. Yes, I'm off carbonated diarrhea for the moment.

At home Suz smelled the tantalizing aroma, and was still hungry after her dinner of air, so she snatched one of my containers of fries. I was okay with that, as I probably couldn't finish both burgers AND both fries.

A few minutes later my tummy was full of tasty beef, yummy lettuce and savoury sauce. For dessert I had to settle for cookies because disaster had struck in our freezer and I was completely out of ice cream.

I think it's the only time I've ever been upset eating cookies. Damn stupid yummy cookies.

So make up your mind......did you have McDonald's or beef?

As for me, I'm a freak.....I like quiche, but you gotta stuff it full of meat to offset the air. Enough bacon and cheese to kill a smaller man all bound together by egg. Oh....and garlic.

Pete, stop it. What are you doing? Tempting me? You know bacon is my one weakness.

poor suz, she cooks a nutritional, homecooked meal and you go to McDonalds. I think you should have dipped your fries in a yummy chocolate shake...would have been dinner and desert all at once...
