Gluten-Free: McDonald's? I'm Lovin' it!

I swear, a bunch of pigs grew wings and took flying lessons this weekend, 'cause stuff I never thought would happen - did.

Yesterday, we traveled north to Haugesund, Norway, to a wonderful housewarming party for a beautiful home :)

We wanted to go get something to eat when we got there, but didn't know of any places to go. We decided to settle for McDonald's so I could rock the large fries and sweet'n sour sauce.

Well, I thought; why not ask if they have gluten-free buns - it doesn't hurt and maybe word would get out one day, so this could be and I could enjoy a Big Mac once again. Well, judgement day came when she responded; "Of course, no problem!". I said; "What?! Seriously?". It was such a touching experience that I could have shed a tear of sheer grease.

They served me my "Big Mac" wrapped in "gluten free" stamped paper. I opened and discovered they made it look exactly like their regular burgers with the sesame seeds, grease and the whole bit! (I found a fellow blogger lady from Stockholm, Sweden, who took a picture of the buns since I forgot the camera for the whole trip).

I never thought I could enjoy a greasy McDonald's burger again. I mean, just thinking of McDonald's gives me gut rot, but it was nice to try to savour the moment. :)

Now, if only I could bring Heath Ledger back to life to serve me my next burger ... I miss him to the Big Max!
