Forgive Me

Forgive me Father

For I have sinned

It's been 2 years since my last MacDonald's

Maybe more

I can't remember for sure.
It wasn't my fault.
I was tempted.

I said no initially.
Even turned my nose up at the thought.
Made some comment about the horrible nutritional value.


Then someone said those two words ...

Hash browns

I LOVE those hash browns. I know I shouldn't. They're deep fried, oozing grease. Any resemblance to an actual potato is purely coincidental. I looked over at John who was taking the office orders and gave in. I asked if they did the meal deals like they did in Canada. My favorite was the sausage and egg McMuffin with cheese, hash browns and a coffee.

They do that here too


So I had a MacDonald's breakfast. My first one in years I'm sure. And I'm embarrassed to admit I loved it.

The sausage had a slightly different flavour to it, almost seemed like a hint of anise spice perhaps and the cheese seemed tangier. The coffee? Well I forgot to mention to John that I take it black so it came back looking a little creamy but I drank it anyway.

I didn't need lunch (and I felt guilty) and by the time dinner rolled around I hooked up with my flat mate for a movie and we went to a pub for dinner. So what did I have?

Bangers and mash with onion gravy and a pint of Guinness.

It was a pork and potato kinda day I guess.

This is too funny. I also remember not eating at McDs... but one day in Italy, a few friends and I had this unending craving for this "food" and we enjoyed every bite! Hmm...

I can honestly state that I've never been in a McDonalds, ever, though I've never met anyone else who hasn't. I guess I'm pretty strange!

Haha, brilliant, Chris. It's good to sin a little...

Frisell is spelled with an "s" (maybe "z" is pronounced like an "s" in scotland)
find the video "Czech Dream"

Hi Chris, just dropping by as a fellow St Silas blogger. It's good to have the odd guilty pleasure; my last blog post was about one: a Cliff Richard song! (I'd better update soon)

The weather is so awful we NEED comfort food to get us through.

You have absolution. Say 2 Hail Marys and eat some yeast.
