When I was in college back in the 1990’s, I worked at McDonald’s. I usually worked at the front counter, front drive-thru, or back drive through. Hubby knew I was someone special because I would take an order, take money, and be eating my dinner in the office next to the drive-thru all at the same time. He couldn’t believe I could multi-task like that.
One of the great benefits of working at McDonald’s was the free food. As a poor college student, it was greatly appreciated. I loved Big Macs and chicken nuggets with hot mustard sauce and sweet and sour sauce. Yes, I know chicken nuggets from McDonald’s are not real chicken nuggets.
The special sauce on the Big Mac’s was one of my favorite parts of the sandwich. I’ve made a homemade version of the special sauce. It’s absolutely delicious.
