There's been some creepy news as of late surrounding KFC. I honestly do NOT think that this is what the Colonel had in mind when he created the chain years ago.
My family? We've not eaten at a fast food restaurant since I watched Food Inc. back in 2010. Sure there was a rogue drive-through order of french fries that my husband picked up for my son one night. And a coffee at McDonald's where he was meeting a parishioner. But MEALS?
No dice. Sorry. Call me snobby, uppity, paranoid. I just can't do it.
My family had to come up with alternatives, for those times when we WOULD like to go out for a quick meal, because surely everyone needs to do so once in a while. Here are a few examples:
- sushi (I know, I know, you are laughing a bit, but my kids really do like sushi.)
- Cheeburger, Cheeburger
- make your own pizza nights (we pick up the ingredients and then bake at home)
- grocery store food courts (like Market District)
- taco Tuesday at Biba
Have you given fast food the heave ho?
What do you do instead for a quick meal out????
