This is a sponsored blog post. Chick-fil-A has partnered with our blog this year to collaborate on multiple events to showcase their amazing catering options! All opinions are 100% our own 🙂 Thank you for supporting the brands that help support our blog!
We host a ton of gatherings at our house. Whether it is for a big football or hockey game, birthdays or a family celebration – it seems every month (sometimes twice!) we have a hungry crowd to entertain. While I would not have it any other way, buying food to cook for a large group adds up quickly. Not to mention the time and money you spend purchasing the groceries, and then the hours of prep work you spend putting everything together in time for your guests to enjoy. It’s a giant hassle, and one, admittedly so, that is becoming harder and harder to do. Now with 3 kids little kids in the house, our free time to party prep has been sliced and diced and I found myself overwhelmed with how I would get everything done around the house.
I am a hostess that loves to make appetizers, main dish and deserts, all myself, all from scratch. Treating my friends and family to home-made treats that I put my own personal stamp on. I definitely have a weak spot for feeling like I need to “do it all.” I found myself spending far too much time in the kitchen, missing the conversations and fun of a family gathering all the while I would miscalculate the cooking time and something would end up in the trash. (Money down the drain, or garbage)
Something clicked with this new year, and rotating guests. I knew I had to change the way I party plan and -gulp- ask for help! In order for me to enjoy myself more at our gatherings I have decided that ONE part (or all if needed) of the meal will be ordered in. Our absolute favorite establishment, Chick-fil-A Macedonia now offers catering! You can pick it up or have it delivered!
It takes a lot of pressure off of my shoulders and I can finally sit down with loved ones and enjoy our get togethers.
On New Years Eve we put this plan into action! I made a tray of brownies, asked our guests to bring a munchie and we turned to our local Chick-fil-A to handle the rest.
Guys, the delivery option is just a dream come true!
Chick-Fil-A Macedonia has partnered with The Thome Home this year to show you guys the amazing things they offer for catering in 2017. To start, I have to mention to you all how not only delicious, but fresh their food is. No joke! They prepare their products in-house everyday.
Here is what we were able to sample with our family for the New Year!
Unless you have been living under a rock, you are familiar with their amazing chicken nuggets. Chick-fil-A is the ONLY “fast food” place I will eat from. Because of just that, I really don’t view it as “fast food” – their products are fresh, their chicken is CHICKEN, and my entire family can feel good about eating it! These chicken nuggets were gone in the blink of an eye!
One of my absolute favorites to get is the Cool Wraps! They are made fresh every single day, sliced grilled chicken, shredded carrot and cabbage, cheese, mix greens all wrapped up in a flaxseed tortilla. Coming in at only 340 calories, 13 grams of fat and 36 grams of protein… let us give them a round of applause. I love to dip mine into either the avocado lime ranch or the creamy salsa! Finally, a fresh delicious and healthy lunch/dinner option you can get in a drive thru. Or, if you are like us – a giant catering tray to serve at your next bash!
We cannot forget the side dishes and sweet treats! They offer a variety of options to serve alongside your favorite wrap or chicken choice, like salad, fruit salad, or cookies! And let me tell you, the fruit salad is insane. SO fresh and tasty, beautifully chopped and ready to be served! The cookies are out of this world – they are huge and everything a cookie should be – chewy and soft and packed full of chocolate chunks! Baked every single day! Chick-fil-A offers their crave-worthy lemonade and ice tea in gallons. The kids went crazy for having these that night, alongside the adorable Chick-fil-A cups – they thought it was so cool to have everything in the comfort of their own home!
If you are interested in catering your next gathering or office meeting with Chick-fil-A Macedonia, give them a call! Not only will you be provided the best, friendliest service you can find – they will make sure you are ready to go! They provide the paper products needed, and even can set up and stage your event! I have always been the biggest fan of Chick-fil-A – now that catering along with the option of delivery or pick up is available, I am completely smitten!
Keep in mind all of the catering options that they offer come in a variety of sizes to accomodate any crowd you have. So from office meetings, birthday parties and church gatherings – you can turn to Chick-fil-A Macedonia to make your event one to remember!
