McDonald’s Mighty Wings

McDonald’s Mighty Wings

McDonald’s Mighty Wings For the football season, McDonald’s released a limited time menu item: Mighty Wings. The wings are deep fried and spicy, just the way I like my wings.

Savory Buffet

Savory Buffet

Savory Buffet   Mr. K and I haven’t really had the desire to eat Chinese buffets in a long time, with the exception of Tomi Buffet in San Jose which has surprisingly high quality sushi.
