There are a lot of cooking and recipe blogs out there, and for good reason. We are realizing that if we started to write about kitchen hacks and food advice, we would definitely get more traffic to our blog because that’s the stuff the people search for on google. However, we want this blog to accurately reflect who we are, and a post about the clever and healthy ways we feed our families would not be honest because, well, we hate having to feed our families. (This is unfortunate because our families seem to want to eat every day!) Instead, we thought we’d use today’s Five On Friday post to help you in a way that is more accurate to who we really are: fast food advice! Here is our list of the best things to order at McDonald’s. (This is not a sponsored post, but when it goes viral we’re hoping McD’s gives us money anyway.)
1. Chicken McNuggets. Did you know you can get these in a pack of 20? If you’ve got four kids, that means 5 each. Or, four each and four for Mommy! If you’ve got fewer kids, like, say, two of them, there are ten-packs, too.
2. Coffee. The coffee at McDonald’s is surprisingly delicious. Maybe not if you’re a coffee snob like Juli, but for the rest of us, who love coffee and NEED coffee but want to spend less than five dollars for it at a place with a drivethru, McD’s is our jive.
3. Smoothies. These are a great option when it’s the morning so it’s too early for fries, but you are going through the drive-thru for coffee and your children are begging for something too. Because they obviously recognize the drive-thru and know that a drive-thru means fries.
4. Half a cheeseburger from my daughter’s Happy Meal. Because I want a McDonald’s cheeseburger, but I also don’t want a McDonald’s cheeseburger, you know? And my 5-year-old can only ever eat half a cheeseburger, as it turns out, and that means I get her delicious, leftover, mostly-bun cheeseburger. In fact, I am doing a PUBLIC SERVICE by eating it, because otherwise it would end up in a landfill, and I’m pretty sure those things don’t decompose.
5. Rolo McFlurry. Obvies.
