I get tired of McDonalds getting a bad wrap for having unhealthy food, when they try to have options for their Happy Meals, salads with options, and now fresh burgers.
Did you know that most fast food places have pre frozen meat patty's, and do not serve fresh meat? McDonalds was one of those places, but they have changed their ways. :)
We were welcomed with smiles, a fun McDonalds backdrop, and a display of good food!
Mica had the craziest look on his 12 year old face. It was cracking everyone up! I knew he was having a great time once the words, "You can have whatever you want, and it's on us!" came out of the manager's mouth.
Isaak typically puts on a great smile for the camera. He hasn't entered that new stage of, I'm too cool for the camera.
What to Order in Their Kiosk:
Typically between the 4 of us we order 2 meals, and 2 sandwiches. Then we split the fries, and drinks.
Last night it was just the two boys and I. Since we could have anything, but knew we were getting samples we ordered fairly light. Each boy got a sandwich, I got a South Western salad, and we each got a shake.
I have to admit that was was judgy with the any self order spot in any store. I'm getting used to it. The boys love it. Possibly it's my old school ways. I'm finding myself using self check out more at stores because it's faster.
My salad was good, but I didn't use any dressing. It tasted good without it. It's great if I can get used to eating salad without dressing. That's where the calories are.
and one for me that had some yummy seasonings. It tasted very Southwestern. Oh my goodness it was good! Isaak had a sliver off mine.
They gave us a fry, for waiting on some chicken to grill. It was so not needed. We had so much food. We all split the fries.
The boys were really excited to have a shake! They picked chocolate and I picked strawberry. What's your favorite flavor of shake?
After that we were in a food coma. Isaak was laying his head on my shoulder at the booth, and Mica couldn't even stand up straight. Ha!
They were so nice and gave us a some McDonalds swag.
Go to McDonalds and order a Quarter Pounder today!
Disclaimer: McDonalds was kind enough to give us the food mentioned in this post. They in no way told me what to say when writing this post.
