I was just saying this

When Jessica & Nathan came for a visit, we of course discussed work and the economy.  Nathan, who is now managing a McDonalds, mentioned that McDonalds' revenues are up 11%.  I'm not sure if that was his store or McDonalds as a whole, but I said it was to be expected - because most people can't cook.

There are of course many who can, but as a population there are fewer households with someone that can and has time to cook.  So instead of cutting back on eating out, like Bobby and I have done, many families are switching from eating out at Applebees, to eating out at McDonalds.  Hence the increase.
