I recently had the opportunity to try the Chicken McNuggets at McDonalds, as they were 10 for 2.00 and my mom is a cheap-o. Upon ordering them I discovered you get a choice of sauces, I tried them with the honey mustard and sweet and sour. The McNuggets themselves were fresh out of the fryer, crispy on the outside and nice and hot on the inside. Once you dip them in honey mustard it is like a flavor explosion!! The Chicken McNugget with sweet and sour sauce is pure retro-food. By retro-food I mean that's the way my mom used to eat them when she was a teenager like, a million years ago or something. I found comfort in the sweet and sour sauce, it would be a perfect treat for just lounging around and taking it easy. All in all, the Chicken McNuggets get 3 out of 4 stars.
The Chicken Fajita Roll-up from Applebee's: seasoned chicken, rolled into a large tortilla with monterrey jack and cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, and pico de gallo. On the side there is a Mexi-Ranch dipping sauce. My dear mother had the foresight to get me a side of guacamole with it also. Good girl. There is a seasoning in the chicken, they say chipotle, that reminds me of chorizo, the chicken is grilled in it. When I took a bite of this little gem, topped with guacamole and just a hint of Mexi-Ranch, I stopped dead.Then chewed ever so slowly, so as to savor every single bite. I think a tear escaped my eye. When I finished I walked up to my mom and said "Perfect, just perfect" and gave her a hug and kiss. S0metimes she gets it right. 4 out of 4 stars!!! My only complaint is that grandma thought she should share it with me, she's so greedy.
By the way, mom and I took some treat out to Jimmy's grave last night and talked to him and said a little prayer. Mom put the treats down and said "Here you go, Foo" (She used to call him FooFoo or Foo, due to his fluffiness) She spoke to him a little and guess what I did? I ate the treats! I know he would want me to have them, I just know it! Mom said "You're so RUDE!" Whatever. That's how it was when he was alive, we'd steal each other's treats all time! PEACE!!!
