Go Ahead, Treat Yourself !

It's good to treat yourself to something that you haven't had in a while. This past week I wanted a burger, but I wasn't feeling up to getting a regular burger from a fast food chain. Then I felt like having fries with cheese ! So that decided it for me, I went to a local burger place and treated myself to some meaty goodness. A double cheeseburger, fries with cheese and a regular tea, yeah baby ! There was no special occasion to celebrate. Or a feeling of morose to get over. I just felt like getting myself a treat, no reason needed. Onions were a little strong, so I took them out. I encourage all of you to go out and take a little time to yourself and gift yourself a little treat. A cup of coffee, a shot of whiskey, a piece of carrot cake, a new shirt, a new pen . . . anything that will make you feel special. For everyone it will be different and that is what will make it special to each individual. Me, it was a great tasting cheeseburger, but you know what? I'll just let the photo above speak for itself as to the deliciousness I consumed on that day. Now go ! Go treat yourself ! Photo- Taken/Owned by me, Plethos

@Plethos I like a burger steak, medium rare and served on on a dish with a salad served separately. I do not like a burger in a bun.

Treating ourselves once in a while should be done, I just need to get over the guilt of doing it when I do! That food looks amazing by the way!

I've never seen fries with shredded cheese on them. I've only had them with melted cheese. It all looks good.

@Plethos Because I like to treat myself when my birthday comes. Some other times I do it too but I would rather same the money and eat at home. It is too expensive to eat out.

Do they have any burritos at Johnny's burritos? (That's what caught my eye first in your photo here ) Well I hope you enjoyed your special treat ! I don't deserve any more treats . . . I ate a bunch of Valentine chocolates for the past couple weeks .

yes, thats how they started out, as a burrito place. their main item was the burrito, many types of burritos. the chorizo burrito, the carne asada burrito, the bean burrito, the combo burrito, the chicken burrito and so on. over the years they added some more items to the menu. its a family owned business.

I did that the other day! I hardly ever eat pizza from "The Pizza Place" because it's always super greasy and makes my stomach hurt. I ate some anyway because it's really good. Of course, I had a tummy ache afterwards but it was so worth it. lol
