Not had a McDonald's for ages, why does bad stuff taste so nice
I know I shouldn't but I love a maccy d chip. Gorgeous.
Sometimes you just gotta!
They changed the only thing I ate at McD's...when they swapped the spicy salsa on the chicken legend that was it
I do love the sweet curry dip...
I’ve had McD or Burgerking in some strange countries! The first time I went to Burgerking and they’d been trained to make it how I wanted it was a revelation. I still like the McD breakfast the most, but don’t get that here. *sobs*.
Really easy no-knead crusty bread recipe, takes about 5-10 mins prep the night before and about an hour in the oven the next day. Only special equipment you need is a heavy container with a lid to bake it in, I use a cast iron casserole. You need to heat it up empty to get a crust on the bottom of the bread.
The recipe I use is pretty similar to this: https://www.jocooks.com/recipes/no-knead-bread/
It's actually really forgiving and adaptable. I've used slightly warm water for a quicker rise (about 6 hours seems to be the minimum to get a useable loaf, but it tastes better after 12+ hours), or go easy on the yeast and leave it in a cool room for longer to get a slight sourdough flavour. A little too much water is better than a slightly dry dough. It's like a very, very thick, sticky, lumpy batter at first.
Also, we use baking paper to keep the pot clean. It does leave wrinkles in the loaf, but they don't affect the taste. Flour on the top is optional. It looks nice though.
Of course it's best eaten hot with loads of butter, but will cut easier if you let it cool just a bit first. Some days we bake the loaf first thing while we're still waking up, then that's breakfast and lunch sorted...
What's that in the green box?
The “burger” was a Vegetable Supreme - basically, vegetable strips in a bun with lettuce, mayo and gherkin
I think the last time I had McDonalds was in Egypt it around 2009.
I'd been ill with food poisoning or stomach infection or something (they gave me antibiotics), and the day before I came home (ill for 9 of the 11 days I was away) I really needed something to eat that I knew what it was.
I swear the burger was about 10 inches across, it was enormous, but utterly delicious. I'm not sure if it was because I was so hungry, or because it was truly tasty.
I know they don't taste like that here!
Did you get it delivered?
No. We were out for a drive so were going to do the Drive Thru but that system had crashed.
I masked up and went in ... they had anti bac at the door, staff were all masked and supervising every step and all customers were masked and following orders and it wasn’t too busy.
That sounds like they are on top of things.
There was a huge queue at the drive through near me yesterday.
I think we were lucky they had a system failure and most people bailed
I think I was in Egypt in the same year. I was on a small trip of 20 people, everyone else got food poisoning. I reckon that was because I wouldn’t eat the food on the boat and snuck out every night. The funny thing was the food on the first train looked fine, sandwiches and cake in cellophane so I ate it...and they all thought I was the adventurous one! It was also the first time I’d seen people using baby wipes.
I’ve never had a MacDonalds anything...*gets my coat, leave thread*
Unless it's because you prefer Burger King then I think you are in the wrong thread for sure
