Bolivia became the first McDonald’s-free Latin American nation, after struggling for more than a decade to keep their numbers out of ‘the red.’ And that fact is still making news.
McDonald’s served its last hamburgers in Bolivia on a Saturday at midnight, after announcing a global restructuring plan in which it would close its doors in seven other countries with poor profit margins.

Wrabbit I love you to death, but how are you so alert at this hour of the morning? I haven't even made my first coffee yet. Huge carrot bunch for you for catching this.

Yes I also make my own-there simply are not commercially made burger patties in my country that taste any good+although we have a small household budget we use practically only fresh produce.We buy cereals for the kids in packaged form,but locally there are some extremely healthy options in that line,fortunately.That is about it-one can do a lot for one's own health by using fresh produce only+the food always taste restaurant-quality,as the flavours combine+compliment.There is no suibstitute for simple dishes made up of fresh preservative free produce.
When you make your patties,do you also add in some grated cheese+fresh garlic+parsley?Ground coriander pips?seeds are great too,and to stretch the meat I add in one bar of Nutrific/Weet-Bix,a very healthy type of local wheat cereal that comes in bar form-it adds bulk+fibre+does not detract from the taste whatsoever.
And if you make your own sauces from scratch to go with your homemade patties you have a perfectly healthy steakhouse style meal-i sometimes make homestyle fried onion rings with it too.
