Last week, I had the awesome opportunity to see my girls of Sip and Script at an unlikely place, McDonald's! A calligraphy class with french fries, as it turns out, is one of my new favorite things. I'm a mother of a toddler so I know McDonald's and it's trustworthy fare; chicken nuggets and fries have saved me on more than one occasion. I'm not ashamed to say that we do partake in drive-thru fries in moderation over here. What I was excited to learn on this trip to the new McDonald's in Everett, MA, is that they are offering some new signature recipes that are made with delicious, fresh ingredients that I can feel good about eating on the go. We went behind the scenes to see how they were made and were able to taste the end results...which were so delish.
As of May 5th, there are 11 restaurants in New England that feature these great new signature crafted recipes (Pico Guacamole, Sweet BBQ Bacon and Maple Bacon Dijon). There are self ordering, touch screen kiosks that make ordering fun and ensures you're seeing what your order is before placing it. I usually grab my McDonald's to go but these new concepts have table service... table service at McDonald's! That's pretty cool and makes the experience more dining and less dashing. They are really working to make McDonald's not just your old stand by but offer new dining options, especially if you're looking for something a little different.
I was sort of obsessed with my grilled chicken sandwich topped with pico de gallo, guacamole, ranch and cheese all served on an artisan bun. It was pretty dang delicious and I was able to eat it slowly, because I was out without my children lol. When I was ordering, I had the opportunity to see the calorie counts as I was adding and subtracting ingredients to cater to my tastes and dietary restrictions. It's a great tool, especially if you're dieting at all (which I am off and on while trying to find sanity in this new SAHM lifestyle).
The fact that I was introduced to these new recipes with a Sip and Script class was basically just icing on the cake. I love what those girls are doing, teaching people the art of calligraphy and hand lettering so that they can take their craftiness into their own hands. I've done two classes with them and would recommend them any day of the week. This was certainly a night well spent away from my kids! You can search McDonald's for a location near you serving the new Signature Crafted recipes and check out Sip and Script for an event that you might be interested in!
