Cheesecake Factory: Always a flo pleaser

When I don’t know where to eat in Seattle/States, I always turn to Cheesecake Factory. There’s no doubt that there will be dependable dishes and drinks.

McDonald’s Angus mushroom swiss third pounder: To die for

This burger is only being sold in some parts of the states and it is literally heart disease/cholesterol/liver failure all wrapped up in a bun. But, it’s irresistible! A third pound of Angus meat, mushrooms, and 2 slices of swiss cheese is to die for! This burger has 770 calories, 135 g of fat and 1170 mg of sodium.

Is it worth it? Yes!
