We partake in the Shamrock Shake! - Sun, 12/23/12 9:17 AM
[Helpful answer received] / [List Solutions Only]
If you've read the title of this thread...we are to assume that you have arrived here...as a fan of the Shamrock Shake.

The Shamrock Shake is synonymous with St. Patrick's Day. While everyone is running around on St. Patrick's Day as a Colleen...guess who carries the water the other 364 day of the year? That's right.

So let's take these days leading up to the return of the Shamrock Shake...to be ready!!

I can hear it now. Ohhhh...it's just a vanilla shake with yada yada.

No! It's McSynergy.. The force of an object that happens to be greater than the total sum of parts (or something like that). Whatever.

So on this day let's all say....we partake in the Shamrock Shake!!!!!

Hey...wait a minute.

The Shamrock Shake will be back when I am in Memphis.

If I share my french fries with you...that will make it a Shamrock Shake Roadfood trip.

I must have one.  It's required.
 
On a side note:  Spoon over the fries for O'Poutine.

That's the spirit Mar! (The shake not the poutine).

I make a mean McTato salad...that would be welcome at any fine southern gathering. Maybe.

McTato salad is a delightful version of a potato salad (using French fries) thst can be made on the fly.

A quick trip to the convenience store for a variety of extra essential condiment packets (and secret ingredients)...and we're off!

Why would you blaspheme a perfectly good container of fries?

This is true...

My Father worked with Justin Wilson (Exxon Research) and Justin Wilson made Cajun Potato salad for a company event.

The recipe is in his book...Outdoor Cooking with Inside Help.

If Justin Wilson had devised McD's menu, I'd be there every day.
But alas, no such luck.

Are you referring to my 50-yard shot on the Cape Buffalo in Zambia back in 1986 or the 12 pound largemouth I caught on two pound line in 2000?

Hand to God...I LOVE Esquire. However...they have the audacity to suggest adding alcohol to a pure innocent Shamrock Shake.

Irish people are tough! Even the little ones.

My Nanny was just about 5 ft. tall and she would go in the liquor store and wait for the guy to tell rher the price of something before yelling "where's your gun? Because you're robbing me. Where is it? Under the counter?" Oy.
