The $3 Big Mac (sort of) mini meal
I'm curious to know how many of you have done the following: You get a craving for a Big Mac, but, for whatever reason, you are VERY short on cash (or, like me, you're just a cheapskate). So, you go in to your local McDonald's and order a $3 double cheeseburger mini-meal and ask to add lettuce and Big Mac sauce to sandwich and leave off the ketchup and mustard. I've done this a couple of times and its a cheap way of getting my Big Mac craving satiated. Again, I ask - has anybody else done this?
