Quarter pounders = McDonalds = sweet childhood memories.
Food always brings the sweetest memories to me. Memories of my childhood. One of those memories is going to McDonalds. Walking up to the window and ordering our food. Sitting on tables outside (because you couldn't go inside - and wouldn't want to even if you could). Seeing the golden arches and the sign that says "1 million sold." The menu in 1965 consisted of -
French fries - 15 cents
Hamburger - 15 cents
McDouble hamburger - 28 cents
Filet o'Fish - 24 cents
Cheeseburger - 20 cents
McDouble cheeseburger - 38 cents
Milk shake - 22 cents
Uncomplicated. And delicious.
The menu for 2012 consists of more items than I care to count - - more than a dozen different types of hamburgers, eight chicken sandwiches, an array of wraps, salads, breakfast items. . . and on and on. And prices ten times what they used to be.
Even Ronald McDonald was more uncomplicated back in the day. Today he looks like this - -
I like simple. I like uncomplicated. I like cheap.
