cooked breakfast

2 Dec

london 12.28pm 8.8C cloudy/foggy friday 2016

i got a macdonald leaflet sent to me recently by post offering breakfast for £1. or £2 if it is with coffee.  its good if u are travelling and so out of the house/flat; but it is so much cheaper to just cook it at home, and you can have it with fried fresh tomatoes, that it is a no brainer which is preferable. though i have to admit i was tempted when i got that leaflet. even me, because there is something rather appealing about those photos. not to mention someone else have cooked it. and you are seated in a restaurant and also able to use their free wifi. it feels very grown up. haha. the voucher is valid before 10.30am. i also got free vouchers for a big mac with fries, or a quarter pounder with fries for £2. and that is valid all day. i think the big mac with fries or quarter pounder with fries is the better value. but i have not bought any. i sometimes wonder why i dont. maybe the thought of my pass experience when it was so salty has lingered in my memory. they look great in the pictures but no so in reality.

when i cook it myself i get two fried eggs!! this breakfast  costs 40p.

it seems people have used the price of big mac to show the difference in cost of living in different countries. but as u can see, the promotions they give, in terms of money off vouchers; can make a nonsense of those prices. for eg, uk big mac costs (according to the website) $3.94. = £3.11. but in actuality it is £2.95. (i think , i must go by a macdonalds and check! added. it is £3.09)yet i have vouchers that allow me to buy it (plus fries) for £2.

people who buy and eat  these hamburgers all the time really deserve to be poor. £2 seems quite cheap for a macdonalds quarter pounder, but think of this… for that same price u can buy 500mg of minced beef. 1lb = 453gms. it would make u a lot of quarter pounders, because hamburgers are not pure beef, it is 50% fillers, (rusks etc). so u could get 8 quarter pounders out of that minced beef.even if u make allowance for all the cheese,gerkins and buns, u could still make 4 meals out  of those. added. 11.48pm 3.12.16 4.7C saturday. my usual breakfast is porridge with a small handful of sultanas. that is it. and it is really very filling. today i did not feel like eating till 9pm.

        $3 for a sausage McMuffin and if it is a set I think it is almost $4.50 but if it is on promotion $3

    i am at the macdonalds in victoria, but there is no breakfast menu. i asked and was told because breakfast is only before 10.30am. so i still dont know how much it costs normally. haha. i see they have computer screens to order the food, but u need to have a charge card, it wont accept cash. if u want to pay by cash u still have to go to a cashier, but there is no queue, because everyone else is using the computers to order. i think if u want to use the vouchers u still may have to go to a human cashier.
