O.K. I confess I like to get Burger King Kids Club meals. When I don't feel like cooking I get 2 Hamburger Kids Club Meal with Onion Rings, 2 Onion Sauce which is Cheese and Horse Radish, and a BB Q Sauce.
I take the top off of it leaving Picklees on the Hamburger. I then open and put the Onion Rings on the Hamburger and cover with Onion Ring Sauce. I take the top off the second hamurger and put hamburger and bottom on top of the Onion Rings. Put pickles from top on Hamberger, then open and layer Onion Rings. Put bun top back on. The left over top will be left somewhere to feed the Varmints. Anyway I turn the Hamburger over and put half container of BB Q Sauce on bottom of the Hamburger and spread arround. Put bottom back on. Turn it over, press top down, and enjoy a Ranchero Burger.
Interlock fingers above and below the bun to hold the Ranchero Burger as it is called and enjoy. I sometimes do the Shinoku puzzle while doing that.
I almost forgot I wash it down with Doctor Pepper.
It is the only soda that is good hot. When soda came in water filled machines in service stations we would sometimes get so busy that the pop would be warm when we got back to it. Doctor Pepper was still good warm. I have had Doctor Pepper HOT simmered like tea. It tastes sorta like Tea with a Cherry flavor.
Then there is the toys that come with the Kids Meals.

For me it's almost anything from McD's (but only one Big Mac since February - no other McD's!), any other fast food burger with bacon and cheese, all sorts of sweets (doughnuts, pastries, cakes, etc - but not hard candy, generally), cheese galore, and almost any "instant meal" from M&M Meat Shops (those are so good, but many aren't very healthy).

(Un)fortunately, I'm pretty much off all of that. Except the Harvey's burger I had at Home Depot today to celebrate losing 30 lbs

okay... Kebap.. I could starve for it... It is our usual sunday night dinner when we had been away and nothing is in house... but it's now for more than four weeks since we last had...

what else? Pizza Calzone from these fast food pizza men in the city... a MUST when I'm there...
not so much a McD's fan, but Frank is, so a chicken burger from time to time... unfortunately they took the veggie burger out of the programm..
frozen pizza and asian quick cooking noodles... the small snack in between... ;o))
LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

I sometimes give in to temptation and go to our local chip shop and have a 'white pudding supper'. YUMMMMM - but the calories and fats.... I only give in about 3 or 4 times a year, usually when we have overseas visitors, then I can blame it on their desire to eat a real Scottish fish supper, as we call fish and chips in Scotland.

From Wikipedia
In Scotland, White pudding can also be known as Mealy Pudding. It consists of suet, oatmeal onionand spices Scottish white pudding does not contain meat.
Many versions are suitable for vegetarians, in that they contain no animal fat, vegetable fat being used instead.
The pudding may be cooked whole, or cut into slices and fried. It is an important feature of the traditional Irish breakfast. White pudding (as well as its black andr ed relatives) is also served battered and fried in chip shops in Scotland as an alternative to fish. When served this way, accompanied by chips, it is known as a White Pudding Supper.

I'll have the occasional fast-food meal if I'm out & about & suddenly hungry.

Favorite would have to be Taco Bell - just the plain original tacos, which give me a "blast from the past" when I was growing up in NY & Jack-In-The-Box was the only fast-food chain that offered tacos. Those Jack-In-The-Box tacos were a favorite breakfast item after a night out partying - lol!!

Other than that, I'm really not a big junk-food fan. While I love pizza, don't really consider it "junk food", & I've never been a fan of chips or sweet snacks.

I don't like chocolate. I'm not a big chip fan. We don't eat fast food often, and, luckilly, I'm the only one that likes Taco Bell.

My big downfall is gravy. I'd pour it over my coffee, if I could figure out how and have been known to 'drink' the leftovers.

Junk food, what's that?

Pizza Pops, Cheezies, Cheese Nip crackers, Baked Lays potato chips, Goldfish crackers and Cool Ranch Doritos are among my very favs! If I really want to ignore the fact that those pesky things called calories exist, there is always a trip to Tim Hortons or a poutine as well
