Speaking of fast food, specifically hamburgers.

McDonald’s really is not review suitable as everyone you know and everyone I know that lives in this country and in many cases overseas, have found ourselves under neath and inside, the golden arched establishment.
More and more it seems that McDonald’s is becoming a place for families to eat many of their evening meals, as food prices continue to rise and jobs are becoming more scarce which I find so sad and troubling. I see car loads waiting patiently for the drive through representative to take their order.
The comparison:
You need $5.00 for four ears of corn or $10.00 for a few pounds of potatoes, basically the cheapest non bagged and non canned produce available, which one still needs to prepare and there is no protein to balance the meal.
However $5.00 will get your family four cheeseburgers and maybe a Coke to share. The burgers are unhealthy, saturated fat laden, grey frozen disks of future heart disease and other health complications, but drastic times sometimes call for drastic measures–but just how drastic is putting ones health and the health of his/her family at risk?
Other than the 3 month scenario of: grab a NY Times (toilet paper of record, but quality writing) the dog, as this location has a outdoor eating area an Egg McMuffin and a coffee, fast food chains across the board have nothing for me.

About glenn van nostrand

Spent some years making my way around the cities and states, working, learning about new food ideas and planting and eating my share. Making my points about rejecting the corporate take over of our food source to my opinions about the New York food scene. LASTLY: No matter the size of my living area, I am always growing herbs & vegetables and enjoy the nurturing experiences of the growth to the nutritional value it gives from the table.
