Junior’s Sugar Free Cheesecake Arrives In San Diego

Whole Junior's CheesecakeWhen I was in New York, I went to a Junior’s restaurant specifically to try a slice of their sugar free cheesecake. It was absolutely incredible as I detailed previously on my blog. (Click here to see my entry about the Junior’s Sugar Free Cheesecake. So needless to say, I decided it was time to order a whole cheesecake and it was definitely good enough to justify a price tag of $29.95 plus $11.00 for shipping.

I placed the order for the cheesecake a week ago and picked to have it shipped on Monday, October 19th, for delivery today, October 21st. I had actually forgotten I had ordered it by the time the email from Junior’s showed up in my e-mail box to indicate the cheesecake had shipped and the e-mail also provided the UPS tracking number so I could monitor it’s progress on its way across the country to me here in San Diego.

I watched the cheesecake progress from it’s arrival at the Lawnside, New Jersey UPS center, it’s transfer to the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania processing center, where it was loaded onto a airplane and arrived at the Ontario, California processing center. As soon as it arrived there, I even reported to co-workers I told about the cheesecake that my cheesecake had landed in California. And soon after the cheesecake was sent to the UPS center in San Diego where it was loaded into a truck and arrived at my door in a brightly colored box in the Junior’s colors.

Guilty Pleasure – McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish

McDonald's Filet-O-FishWith today being the last Friday before Easter, I am going to allow myself to indulge in a guilty pleasure. That guilty pleasure is the McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish sandwich.

I am not a big fan of seafood by any stretch of the imagination. I find Salmon to be repulsive, and can’t stomach things like Calamari. But I do like Tuna, Cod, Mahi Mahi, Pollack, and Halibut. The kinds of fish that don’t taste overly fishy. I’ve even tried Sushi, but I just can’t get around feeling like I need to gag every time I try it. So I tend to go for fish that’s like what’s found in Fish & Chips meals, Fish tacos, and Fish sandwiches like McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish.

The only time of year I like to have the McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish sandwich is during Lent. It’s not because I’m honoring any faith by any stretch of the imagination, it’s because it’s the only time McDonald’s charges what I think the sandwiches are worth. A few years ago, it was great when they were 99 cents, and last year they were sneaky and raised the price up to $1.29 and they kept the same price for this year here in California. The fish sandwiches are so small, I think they are a complete rip off at their regular price, you might as well get a burger instead. I know I shouldn’t be indulging in a fried fish sandwich, but it’s the only time of year I will do so at McDonald’s.
