Great Resource: Find out where Kids Eat Free near you

13 Feb

I love the concept of kids eating for free with an adult meal purchase. Even though I don’t have kids, I do see the genius in this marketing campaign. I mean, after all, most kids eat about $1-2 max worth of food, and parents fork over (pun intended, haha, I crack myself up…) between $6-10 for it at a nice sit down restaurant! So I found this great resource for families looking to cut back on their eating out spending by not having to pay for kid’s meals. While it won’t save you hundreds, it will at least make you feel better about a little one falling asleep in the booth, or declaring that they suddenly, “don’t like chicken” anymore!

Be sure to call the restaurant to verify that they do indeed still honor the deal. Like any website, most of these restaurant deals have been submitted by users like you.

Also, be sure to note that many of them are for a specific day of the week, and sometimes a specific time too. For instance, one I found said that it is good from 4-close, for kids 12 and under on Tuesdays. But hey, free is free!

Restaurant.com – $50 for $4, $25 for $2!

26 Jan

If you aren’t familiar with Restaurant.com, then you are missing out on eating for pennies on the dollar!

Each restaurant has a certificates available at discounted prices. Most restaurants have at least a $10 for $5 and a $25 for $10. Some also include certificates in the $50-200 range as well.

The catch is that the restaurant has terms and conditions that you must follow to use the certificate. Most will say that you must spend $X.XX to use that particular certificate. For instance, most $10 certificates state you must spend $20. If you buy it for $1, you are basically getting $20 worth of food for $11. Not too shabby! Others specify what days you can use it, if you can use it for take-out/catering, if you must use it on dinner, etc. So make sure you read them before you buy!

So here’s the awesome deal! Almost monthly, they release a coupon code that knocks at least 80% off your purchase.

For the deal this time, use the code DATE

So a $25 gift certificate comes out to $2! You can also get a

$10 for $1,

a $50 for $4,

$75 for $6, and

$100 for $8!

Offer ends Jan 31. But only a certain number of certificates are available for each restaurant, and the good ones sell out fast!

Chicken Spinach Salad

10 Jan

Sometimes, having leftover chicken in the fridge is the perfect answer to a quick weeknight meal. Simply shred or chop up the chicken breast. Next, add your favorite veggies. I like to add tomatoes and cucumber. If I have it, I’ll add avocado, blue cheese or feta crumbles, and even granny smith apples. You can also add some hard boiled egg too.

We use spinach for our greens, but you can use any that you like. We prefer spinach for the nutrients and health benefits. And for dressing, well that’s when this salad goes from average to amazing.

First swiftly whisk together 2 parts lemon juice with one part olive oil. Next add 2 tablespoons vinegar, 1 tsp garlic salt, 1tsp onion powder, and a dash of pepper. Note, those measurements are for 2 servings for entree sized salads.

You might want to adjust to your own tastes and preferences. We like vinegar, so I tend to add some more towards the end. If you don’t have lemon, you can substitute lime, but it will obviously result in a different flavor. I also added some parsley for additional flavor.

For me, food tastes as good as it looks – so presentation is everything. Even for a quick and simple meal like this. Sure, I could have tossed all the ingredients together. But when I came up with the idea of serving my meat and potato loving husband an entree salad for dinner, I knew I needed a better plan. So a-l-a-cobb-like-salad, I lined the ingredients up in thick, colorful lines. I also used serving bowls as opposed to a regular sized bowl or plate. Picture below is my salad with chicken, tomatoes, cucumber, granny smith apples, and mozzarella cheese (not my first choice, but had no other cheese on hand).

Make your dressing beforehand and let sit while you assemble the salad. Or better yet, make the dressing in the morning and let the flavors incorporate while you’re away. Either way, keep the dressing in the fridge until right before you serve. No one wants soggy lettuce!

This can be a really healthy and light meal too. Its totally refreshing to feast on fresh ingredients like raw spinach and apples and feel full. Let me know how you like it in the comments below. Enjoy!
