cheeseburgers

cheeseburgers

so, i have a confession.
i like mcdonalds cheeseburgers.
i was starving at lunch and with no apparent excuse… no kids that wanted to play in the play place, no errands to run, nothing… i drove to mcdonalds… all by myself and went through the drive through and got a cheeseburger value meal.
and man, it totally tasted good.
i even like the orange drink there.

i might be losing my mind.

school got out today.
summer is in session.

    McDonald’s cheeseburgers are good–pregnant or not. I’ve been known to drive thru there without my kids either, and I’ll do it again.

    Oh my gosh! I love McDonald’s! I wish I could kick the habit… but I just can’t seem to! I try and try… I tell myself to just stay away… and then I go… and I’m hooked again. Is there a McDon Anon? 😉

    At least you can play the prego card right now…that has been my excuse! And then after the baby is born, then I won’t have time to cook so I’ll have another excuse! Woo Hoo. Plan double cheese burger kids meal with a coke please?!

    I had my biggest hormonal fit in a McDonalds when I was pregnant! They were out of Shamrock Shakes and I sat in my car, BAWLING, telling them they should put a sign in the window. And I made my husband drive another twenty minutes to a different McDonalds to get me a shamrock shake. And it was so good. Man, I wish it was still March…

    Oh, sounds too good! Cheeseburger & fries ~ now I could go for that this morning ~ yes, for breakfast! Ha! Now, the orange drink, I’ll have to pass on. That stuff tastes like the orange drink they give you to do that glucose tolerance test when you’re pregnant ~ 🙂 maybe that’s why you like it?? But, I have to admit, my all time fave from Mickey D’s is the McRib sandwhich ~ yes, the one with the “processed” pork all drenched in BBQ sauce topped with pickles and onions! Oh, girl! Couldn’t get enough of these when I was pregnant! And I could so totally relate to Jennifer K’s post ~ when i was pregnant, they had the sign up for the McRib’s, and the McDonald’s I went to didn’t have them for sale, YET. I went all hormonal on the cashier and told her that they shouldn’t have put the sign out! (I did go back a few days later to apologize to her, and she just laughed, thank goodness!) Enjoy those cheeseburgers!!

    I remember when I was pregnant with my little guy a few years ago, for me it was Big Macs. They were the thing I craved, and I though about them all the time, but would only let myself give in every other week or so. Sad thing is they just didn’t taste the same after I had him

    Unfortunatly, I don’t have being preggo as an excuse. But I love McD’s cheeseburger’s and orange drink as well. I was craving one once and my husband took me to Wendy’s instead. I was upset and he asked what was wrong and I said but I wanted the grease from McD’s!!! it must be a female thing 😉

    You crack me up! I can see you in the drive through just wishing you had a child in the car to make it socially acceptable to be there. LOL! Once my youngest went to school full time I had the hardest time dealing with eating lunch alone. It really is okay for grown ups to like fast food! Enjoy that cheeseburger and orange soda. :o) //jolenegeorge.blogspot.com/

    I love McDonald’s Quarter Pounder with Cheese and an Orange Drink. That is worse than the cheeseburger… but we gotta feed that craving every so often.

    I can totally relate Heidi! When I was pregnant with my son, I ate McDonald’s cheeseburgers all the time..my husband is convinced that when our son gets older he will remember the taste and be addicted to McDonalds. 🙂

    I LOVE McDonalds cheeseburgers. I always get extra onions on them, I think the little onions are so yummy. My sister worked there in college, and in an effort to get me to dislike the onions, she told me they came dehydrated in a big bag and then they just added water to make them into the onions on your burger. I asked if I could buy them. 🙂 Oh, and the Hi-C orange drink? The only beverage I get there!

    Glad to hear I’m not the only one. I love getting the orange drink at McDonald’s. There’s something addicting about it, because I never crave this unless it’s with McD’s cheeseburger and fries!

    Hummm…I never had any cravings when I was pregnant but now that I’m approaching (well, maybe it’s already here) the age of the life change I have PMS AND cravings all the time. Strange, but I had a double-cheese burger mighty kids meal on this same day (the first McD’s I’ve had in about 10 yrs), but I bought an extra one for my youngest son and got an Asian salad so I could get the exercise DVD and then made my 20 yr old son eat the salad when I got home!! That way I didn’t look so crazy in the drive-thru lane!

    with all of my pregnancies i have had really healthy food cravings. except for my third. he was a junk food junkie. i needed mcd cheeseburgers in a bad way. every wednesday my cute hubby would pick one up for me on his way home from work. ah good times, i haven’t thought about that in a while.

    I have been known to still pick up a McD’s Kid’s cheeseburger meal on occasion too…not just for the cheesburger or fries (that I DO crave) but for the toy too! 😉
