If McDonald's Really Wants More Business...

When I was a kid, McDonald's was the thing.  If my parents had a little extra cash, we would stop at McDonald's, and my brother and I were in kid heaven.  It was a big deal to get to go to McDonald's.  I don't even know if there were any other fast food places open at the time, because McDonald's was IT for a kid.  Sure, Ronald McDonald looked a bit creepy, and I'm still not sure what was up with that purple dude, but every kid I knew went to that place.  And I remember that the food was actually good.  Tasty.  The cheeseburger that my parents usu...more

Apple and Date Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

It’s been a highly stressful and emotional time for me this past week; just a complete accumulation of everything, from my computer failing me to my feeds not refreshing (which appears to be fixed now, thank goodness), and all kinds of highly emotional events. My mom got married, and no matter how joyful and super exciting an event it has been, it also brought back painful memories of my dad’s passing, and didn’t fail to remind me of how hurtful the sting of being single for so long can be, at times. To top it all off, it’s been a particularly brutal ahem, well, you know… “hormonal cycle”, if you get my drift ....more
