Dining Out; On Flashback Thursday

As I get older I go out to eat less and less.  I have realized cooking at home takes just as much time to wait for a waiter, wait for my order, and the wait to pay the bill, so unless it is for social reasons why bother.  But with that there are plenty of wonderful flashback memories of taking my family out for the day.  McDonald's and other fast food restaurants have amazing marketing strategy.  Advertising that promise family fun and bonding with your kids lure the parents in, while little toys and an indoor gym grabs the kids... brilliant.

While I would not eat fast food often, they have definitely influenced our culture.  The Golden Arches, Burger King and others have become symbols of Americana.  I love looking vintage pictures of the iconic buildings and how they've changed over the years.  And, Of course, I love to collect those little treasures that were sent home in every happy meal too.
