Having your parents buy you a Happy Meal at McDonald’s was easily one of the best things when you were a kid. Being able to open that box and see what toy was inside was just like Christmas morning. Happy Meals have existed at the iconic fast food joint since 1979 and have been making kids happy ever since. The Happy Meal toys are sometimes a collaboration with another industry (movie based toys for example), or sometimes just an original McDonald’s creation. The selection of toys is always changing and some are a hit among kids while others are well, not so great. Here are the top 10 saddest McDonald’s Happy Meal toys ever sold.
As Noma, Copenhagen’s world class locavore restaurant opens its doors this month for a casual outdoor picnic- experience, founder and executive chef Rene Redzepi has replaced his signature sea urchins in slivers of hazelnut and lobster and nasturtium with soft custard of egg yolk in a nest of potatoes with essence of rose petals with a $15 burger. But as former New York Times journalist and Redzepi disciple Jeff Gordinier tells me in my Cooking the Books podcast, he will bring a realm of flavour most of us have never tasted.
Churrascarias are one of the best places in the world except if you are a vegetarian. Even so, there is usually a nice salad bar to enjoy but that is not the main reason why you come to a churrascaria. The beauty of a churrascaria does not just lie in the meats available and how they are grilled to a tender and juicy conclusion, but it is also the fact that you can eat these meats to your heart’s content. As much as you want, you can choose how full you can get and how much you want.

The Broken Crust is a small pizzeria, deli and cafe located in "The Quiet Corner" of Putnam, Connecticut, a rural town where community always supports each other. The owners spent many months (and their life savings!) gutting out an old donut shop and totally renovating the inside. It boasts of rich brick facades, a brand-new kitchen, new walls, new countertops, and a gorgeous coffee station and tables made by one owner with handcrafted wood. They adorned this quaint little place with beautiful pendant lights and chalkboard menus. With a great view of the famous Cargill Waterfall, it was a dream come true for the Cozza and Martin families. They worked hard building the menu, testing every single item on it during Sunday football games, choosing the perfect wines and beers, and they just knew it would be a great place. They spent months hiring the most cheerful staff and best cooks.

One thing about the small town life is certain: if you choose the rural path, the number of fine dining restaurants you’ll have available within close proximity to your residence is inherently slim when compared to those who live in a region where an eatery on every corner is a reality. For less populated areas, teamwork amongst citizens is as crucial in sustaining a functional economy as it is to feed our families during mealtimes. In the northeast corner of Montana, where widespread volunteerism is as common as simultaneously having two full-time positions, the Wild West Diner in the rural community of Culbertson has kept their menu mouth-watering and their prices affordable for over 60 years to support local, hardworking residents with one of the most vital resources in sustaining life, most commonly known as food.
Growing up 20 minutes outside of Washington DC gave me plenty of things to do and exposed me to all kinds of cultures. If I got tired of being at home, I could hop on a bus or Metro to the free Smithsonian museums or eat authentic Korean fried chicken Chesapeake blue crabs to top it off with DC’s classic Mumbo sauce. My neighbors were African-American and Hispanic, the church I went to Asian, and my classmates had roots from everywhere: India, Jamaica, El Salvador, Nigeria, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, and Vietnam, to name a few. I was at the epicenter of racial and cultural diversity. I graduated high school hopeful that people in college were going to expose me to even more people from different walks of life.
