I'm letting you in on a naughty little secret. It's been going on a long time, this lusty appetite of mine. I know it's wrong I try to be strong I'm a good girl for a month or two then it happens, across the intersection or occasionally just inside the door of Wal-mart, golden arches that speak to me of fishy goodness.

Lean into the screen. I'm going to say this quietly

I really, really like McDonald's Filet-O-fish sandwiches, really.

There, it's out there for all to know. Judge me if you must.

Filet-O-Fish and I have been going on for years. Whenever I break up with a current food crush, Filet-O-Fish is there for me, Filet and his buddy McDonalds fries(which everyone knows are the best fries).

Filet has been comfort food of choice for many a stressful time. Morning sickness= Filet-O-Fish sans tarter sauce. Trying to go off sugar, yet again= Filet-O-Fish no fries, delusional I know. Reaallly bad trip with two sons to the dentist= Filet-O-Fish for Boy Mom, milk shakes for numb face boys.

Today the unthinkable happened. I cheated. I was at Wendy's didn't see it coming just, BAM, can I have two Frosty's and a Fish Sandwich meal. I didn't even like it. No slice of American cheese product. And lettuce... come on, who puts lettuce on a fish sandwich? I barely noticed that the fish was tender flaky and well, fishy.

I've been guilty all afternoon.

Filet-O-Fish will probably take me back, that's his way; but, I fear this little Wendy's fish sandwich fling will always be there between us, a little.

I might have to try it! I actually love McDonald's cheeseburgers.

Ah, it reminds me of a favorite song from veggie tales, perhaps you've heard it: "Oh, Cheeseburger please do not get angry. I'll eat there (Denny's) and be back for lunch!"

I'm in love with McD's bacon, egg and cheese bagels. Probly the worst way to start your morning, but I love it anyway.

My weekness is the $1.00 McDouble! It just melts in your mouth. :) I better stop now, I'm making myself hungry... must have forgotten to eat lunch today. Opps!

You are a silly gal.

Regardless of this love for McDonalds, I'll still associate with you.

I must admit the filet-o-fish is probably the only thing that I'd eat there these days.

Carls Jr has the best fries.....

Beware the Wendys "toffee coffee shake," horrible, just horrible.

Laughing. Out. Loud.

Pure genius.

(Even if I can't stand Mickey Ds.)

LOVE the fish filets from Micky D's... Of course I always have to drink a gallon of water afterwards because it makes me so thirsty.

Your right. Fish Filet will take you back.

You are so clever in your writing ! I know the filet will welcome you back !

My Hubs loves Burger King's fish sandwich ( used to be called "the Whaler" until it was deemed politically incorrect) I think at this point Burger King could bring that name back considering the disturbing Burger King commercials ( that King is very creepy !!!)

I used to love McDonalds french fries until they had to stop putting all that greasy, yummy tasting fat in them by the food police !!!

Have a great day and thanks for checking in on my blog recently

I'm a cheeseburger girl myself. I try other things but I always go back. He always takes me back. Although as I get older there seems to be more strings attached to our relationship. He's never content with the way I look anymore, always trying to make me fatter. He never thinks I spend enough money on him either, it's 5c more this week, 50c more next month, it's never ending... but I always return.

It is those stupid fries that call my name. I just hate it when I can't ignore their screams. Sigh...

But, the FISH?! Nope. They are dead to me!

Love ya,
