Glad your mum is doing better. I guess there wasn't a Harveys nearby.

Love to use that to make a quick taco salad - just like Wendy used to have. We don't have any close by us though (nearest is over a dozen miles away) so it's quicker (and probably safer) to make my own taco meat at home.

Glad your Mom is doing better!

Is that a rare off-white towards pink tomato?

You never go into a FF joint expecting to have a great burger. .
I have gotten a spicy one there before but they don't seem to have them on the value menu anymore. I've had worse burgers. Wendy's don't McRepeat on me. I was feeling a bit ripped off by the skimpy piece of white lettuce core...they would have been better off not putting any at all

Maybe pack a lunch when you go to visit next time. Then you can sneak her in a treat too.

I agree. I don't care for the hard white lettuce core either. I prefer the green leafy part they show in their ads.

I'm a light green lettuce fan. I like it to crunch when I bite into it. That's why I prefer iceburg for salads.

When it comes to making salads, Himself and I are like Jack Sprat and his wife. He likes the ribs and thicker parts, I prefer mostly leafy and the greener the better. No matter what kind of lettuce I use (I usually buy full heads, not salad blend mixes) all that gets thrown out is the core and any brown spots on the outside ribs.
