It’s Thanksgiving in Canada, which feels weird. Thanksgiving for me, since i’m a total plant, is in November. and it involves a full day of eating and football. it’s on a Thursday and the entire day on Friday is spent shopping until i drop. or at least until the husband takes away the credit card. but in Canada, things are a little different. i’ll still be eating turkey and stuffing and mashed potatoes and peas and sweet potato pie and pumpkin pie. mmmm…pumpkin pie….
but it’s Monday. Monday! and it’s OCTOBER! and there’s no black Friday (boo!). it feels weird, but it’s food. so, who am i to complain? i love food. i love eating it. and cooking it. and baking it. and serving it. and learning about it.
yes, it’s true. you read that right. learning about it.
and luckily for me, i get to learn about food this week. (like the segue there?) McDonalds Canada and The McDonald’s Moms Quality CorrespondentsÂ have invited me to join their team. To be one of five mom correspondents. To take an unprecedented journey behind the scenesÂ at both the McDonald’s Canada headquarters in Toronto and their global headquarters in Oak Brook, Illinois. To be there as McDonald’s gives moms across Canada a behind-the-scenes and behind-the-counters look. To be there for the truthiness. to dispel rumors. to answer questions – my questions AND yours.
I’ll be honest. i don’t really eat at McDonald’s…unless you count the occasional coffee. (but, truth be told, as Miss Vodkarella and i have discussed, the iced coffee? the cream? the CREAM! it’s all cream! that was a big mistake! This, of course, is something i want to talk to them about…) but i still want to know. and i’m super impressed that McDonald’s wants us to know.
i’ve been talking to people about this and they are all excited to get their questions asked…and to actually get an answer. They want to know whether or not there is any lard still used in the french fries. They want to know that when they order Chicken McNuggets that they are actually getting, well, chicken. They want to know what happened to the pizza?
they want to know what their healthier options are, if there are any. They want to know about the eggs in egg McMuffins. are they real? They want to know how the apples stay so darn fresh and keep from turning brown.
they want to know.
and i want to know.
and i’m going to get answers.
so, let’s have it! your best question to ask the McDonald’s bigwigs! What do YOU want to know??!?!?!
besides how it is that my son is so darn cute?
