This past weekend we had a rare and quiet weekend, with no birthday parties to shuffle the kids to, no tickets to local events, no plans with friends – just two whole days of nothing. Doesn’t that sound kind of glorious? We slept in, then hung around in pajamas until lunch time. It was a beautiful day out, so my husband suggested we go out for lunch. The only problem? Our laid back morning meant we had skipped breakfast as well, and now some of us were really craving breakfast food. After such a great morning I didn’t want to waste an ounce of family time on a disagreement, so I quickly mentioned that McDonald’s now offers breakfast all day long. That took absolutely no convincing and we were on our way in record time!
My favorite thing about McDonald’s is how well the options suit everyone in our family. It’s hard getting six people to all agree on one thing, but when we head to McDonald’s I know there will be something for everyone on the menu. It allows me to focus on what’s really important: having fun with these kids, and watching them make memories together!
So the kids grab their Happy Meals, but I am seriously craving some hashbrowns and a Sausage Egg McMuffin® so I take full advantage of the All Day Breakfast and top off my meal with a sausage burrito and orange juice (in my defence, this was technically breakfast and lunch!). Honestly, I don’t think there is a wrong time of day for hashbrowns and a Sausage Egg McMuffin® , especially when you know that those perfectly round, iconic McDonald’s eggs are made fresh in the restaurant with USDA Grade A eggs and nothing else (if you’ve ever wondered how they get them to be perfectly round, it’s by cracking them into an egg ring!). And all muffins, biscuits and bagels are prepared with real butter (not margarine!) so I know I’m starting my day off with good, healthy food.
I also love that McDonald’s is pledging to use only cage free eggs by 2025 in the US and Canada. It’s a reminder that McDonald’s menu is always changing in response to the feedback from customers. That’s important to me because I’m always trying to strike that balance between convenient and responsible, and McDonald’s gives me an opportunity to do just that.
I love that this fountain soda cup says share an ice cold coke with your fam, because that’s basically what this day was all about! My guys are having so much fun playing with their Happy Meal toys and snacking on fries while my husband and I enjoy our breakfast (my husband was totally in on this game – they’re playing Minion Hot Potato)! And look at these faces! Those are happy McDonald’s smiles for sure!
