Soused Blueberries Does Montreal!

Montreal is easily one of my favorite cities in the world entire. It's got oodles of charm and character, and is an easy, scenic drive from the Boston area. Despite the cold weather (but honestly, once you're below thirty, it all sucks), there's really a big draw for an escape here: the food and all things available to wash down said consumables.
There's a number of places we'll be visiting over the weekend, and I'll report back as soon as possible. But for now, I'd like to point out that today I stopped on the way to Montreal at McDonalds for a Happy Meal. I stop for at McDonalds only when there is not time for something better, and clearly I was in a desperate place somewhere right before the Canada/US border. So to tide myself over, I got a Happy Meal, the only part that I really savor being the french fries. (Own up, you love those fries too. They are the benchmark to which one compares all french fries.) And for "health reasons" McD's has begun to change its Happy Meals to include not a small fry, but about five french fries (single french fries), and a plastic packet of shitty looking apple slices. OUTRAGE. If you want your kids to be healthy, don't bring them to the golden arches, fools. I suppose you are forcing the wee ones to eat less fries, but in reality, who the hell eats those apples? Raise your hand if your kid eats the apples, or if they just want the fries and the friggin toy?
This rant has been brought to you by someone who has eaten far too much duck fat today... stay tuned...
