fast food frenzy

fries

On-the-go evenings can make for tricky dinners, especially in large families. It might be more convenient to eat out, but it’s not always the easiest or most affordable option. Is a deliciously greasy drive-thru trip in your imminent future? No worries! I’ve got you covered. Use these tips to feed as many as ten mouths for less than twenty-five bucks!

Small items on repeat. Remind the kids that this is a utility meal. There is not a lot of room in the budget or the schedule for each person to get crazy and select their own combo meal. Order ten cheeseburgers and keep it moving.

Picnic style. Grab a few large fries, instead of one order per person. This meal is intended to be shared, quickly and simply. Believe it or not, serving fast food family style can actually make the entire dinner more fun!

Water. Sodas tend to disappear before the rest of the meal, and they make us even thirstier when we’re on the go. Order a few large ice waters and distribute amongst the water bottles you’ve already packed.

DIY dessert. Pull those apples and grapes out of your diaper bag and call it a success. Cheers!

  1. I really like this post. It reminds me of family outings to fast food restaurants when I was a kid. It was a treat for us. Say, for example, my sisters and I all did well on our report cards — we got McDonald’s, yayyy! Such nice memories that I didn’t even realize I had until reading this. :)
