Empty but so-o-o GOOD!
I know, I know. This is a strangely empty cardboard container. What's up with that? Shortly before this portrait of the empty box was taken it held a bacon and cheese Angus Third Pounder from MacDonald's. I have been seeing so many television commercials about this new burger that in passing a MacDonald's mid-afternoon my car swung wildly into the drive-thru window and ordered for me. Honestly, I only eat at MacDonald's maybe twice a year, but this new Angus beef burger caught my taste-bud's attention. Oh, go ahead, they said, give it a try. It might be good. But do get a photo and see if you can duplicate the look on their print ads and TV spots. You know what I mean. Incredible fluffy bun. Ingredients piled a mile high. Overflowing with red onions, strips of bacon and perfect cheese slices angled just so. And, a burger that would win beauty contests. It would have been a good photo. Prize-winning even. I think it would. But, alas, I ate the entire thing. Kind of fast. Left a teeny bit of bacon and onion. (For this picture.) That's it folks. Gone. Except for this empty box and the MacD bag. I do not feel bad either. Turns out, it was pretty good. And big. (Now as I look today at some of your posts with the incredible food lovingly prepared and presented, I won't be so hungry.)
