If this isn’t the cutest way to start your week, I honestly don’t know what is.

A video of an 83-year-old Irish grandma trying fast food for the first time in her life is making the rounds online, and rightfully so!

Eva McCarthy, a 22-year-old from Cork, Ireland, who enjoys spending time with her grandma (as one should), got her grandmother, Margaret McCarthy, to break her strict diet of meat, potatoes, and vegetables for her first taste of McDonald’s — aka, the gateway drug of fast food.

In the video, Eva gives her grandmother a chicken nugget dipped in sweet-and-sour sauce (I personally would’ve gone for honey mustard or buffalo sauce, but to each their own), along with a milkshake, pizza, and a chocolate chip cookie.

Honestly, that sounds like the breakfast of champions, and I am HERE for it.

Eva told Caters News, “I wasn’t too surprised that my grandmother didn’t enjoy the sweet and sour sauce from McDonald’s as she usually doesn’t eat sauces other than gravy.”

However, a few fast-food items Eva had Margaret try definitely took her by surprise. “I was very surprised about the milkshake from McDonald’s though because she is a firm believer in having a scoop of vanilla ice cream with every desert,” she added. “I was so happy when she liked the pizza as it is part of my weekly diet, so at least now I can count on my grandmother to enjoy it with occasionally. I’d love to do more videos with my grandmother as we both love the time we spend together and making other people laugh!”

We’d love to see more videos, too. Keep ’em coming!
