Tears of Joy: A Saturday Snapshot
I ate this thing last night.
It's my latest downfall -- The Angus Third-Pounder© at McDonald's.
It almost makes me cry, it's so good.
You can get 'em in two styles -- Cheddar & Bacon, or Swiss & Mushroom.
I always choose this second format because I'm convinced that when it comes to the proper preparation of bacon, well, it's sort of an art form. Its got to be done right, as in, not too crispy. I hate over-cooked pig.
But [trust me] McDonald's has this Swiss cheese and mushroom business really figured out, down to a science. It's truly a fantastic burger. And they've really up-scaled the bun on this one. Plus it comes in a real nifty carrying case, as you can see.
Mmmm…. "I'm loving' it" as they say on TV.
They could have chosen a better name for this burger though.
Angus Third-Pounder is just so… anti-climactic.
It sounds a lot more -- gourmet -- if you say it in French:
Tiers De Livre.
Which, being interpreted, means Tears of Joy…. [I think].
So, this is my Saturday Snapshot. Thank you Alyce, for hosting this wonderful meme at your awesome site, At Home With Books.
