lol, gq.

i wasn't pointing my comment at any oarticular person (who pooped).

i realize everthing isn't for everyone, but i wondered what makes someone feel the need to be contrary to a thread in extremely simplistic form? or worse, in a verbose form.

does anyone care that this tiny thing isn't for you? what are you trying to say about yourself by such a statement?

i'm just curious as to what is fhe spirit of the t.o.s. of "be nice to each other".

GQ,

I do not see you as a Food Snob ... I am not either, I just do not do Fast Food or Overdone Fusion & overcooked meat ... I prefer, a Greek Yogurt or a simple Pasta with home made sauce ... These chains opened in Los Angeles around 1979 - 1980 and I was born in 1962 ... So, we did not have this food culture with two European parents ... Swiss French Maternal and Italian Paternal ...

I also do not eat very much red meat ... If I am going to, I prefer to speak with my Butchers and prepare it at home ... or go to Uruguay or Mendoza, Argentina for real Steak on BBQ ...

Have lovely August,
Margi.

Apologies for derailing the thread, but I'd eat at McDonald's
if they offered some of the foods they do in other countries.
Watched a show not too long ago that showed what American
fast food companies had on the menu in places like Japan....
damn, they get the "good" stuff!

yeah, what they do is hardly "innovative", what they offer is simply catered to the local market.

A favorite of mine from the McD's in Japan and Hawaii, is the McTeri burger. SO good(for fast food). Also, the McSaiman: Fried rice, also REALLY, surprising good for any place, let alone a McD's.

As for Curly fries, I think the only place that offers them is Arbys, and Hardees/Carls jr. I love a seasoned curly fry if I am going to eat some greay food goodness, but I still prefer a Crinkle Cut over all, if I am going to "fry" it up.

Not sure who has access to Checkers, or Rallys, but THEIR fries are pretty darn tasty for a fast food fry!

If you have the right gadget, you can make them at home.

And, probably, a healthier "baked" version.

As I recall, I've seen curly fries in the frozen food section.

And, you can "season" them w/ your own creation/mix.
