“Food” Pics of the Week

McDonald’s

The McRib sandwich is back!!! I do not know why, but there is something very special about this sandwich that draws me to it. Maybe this feeling is because the sandwich is offered for a limited time. You know, the whole wanting something more when you cannot have it.

Back in high school, I used to work at McDonald’s and absolutely hated all things associated with the McRib. During my McDonald days, I worked drive thru (one of the reasons why I am not a fan of people 🤪), and drive thru workers had to wash ALL the dishes at closing. OMG, the smell from the McRib sauce was very potent and would make me angry. Also, one needed a freaking jackhammer and the patience of Job to remove the sauce from its storage container.

Speaking of McDonald’s, here are a couple of hacks:

in case you already did not know

-If you want fresh out-of-the fryer french fries, request them without salt. Then, you can watch the employee roll their eyes at you when you request 10+ salt packets. 😉

-For the breakfast sandwiches request the ’round’ egg. With the exception of the Egg McMuffin, all of the egg sandwiches are made with some “fake” liquid egg product.

-The ice cream machine is rarely broken at night. It takes forever and a day to clean the machine, and no one is trying to reclean the machine once it has been cleaned that’s why they say it’s broken. Workers might make an exception if you order ice cream without any toppings.

  1. I had a mcrib when it first came out and wasn’t impressed. I’ve never had one since.
    I was in marching band in high school and during football season we would eat at micky ds twice on game day. After 3 years of that I pretty much stopped eating there. But now I can go back a few times a year.

    • One of my favorite things to do while closing was to making fresh apple pies and cinnamon rolls for my breakfast.

      For as long as I can remember, washing dishes always has been “therapeutic” for me so I did not mind (that much) washing those greasy ass trays and containers. However, cleaning the fry trays with all the salt and grease that had accumulated over the day was quite a pain.

      • Fresh apple pies…yes!!!! I could eat my weight in chicken nuggets, too.

        Sweeping is like that for me. It’s mindless and therapeutic. But I hated the salt and greasy trays, as well.

      • For a quick snack, we would wrap a chicken nugget in “cheese”. I think that I had a mild addiction to Big Mac sauce because I would put it on all of my custom sandwiches and use it as a dipping sauce.
