We love to eat out as a family but sometimes it’s anything but relaxing, especially on a weeknight when we’re typically navigating multiplication tables, soccer practice, and traffic jams.
Chili’s to the rescue!
We’ve always been big fans of Chili’s for their Tex Mex-tastic food, but our girls also love the variety offered on the Pepper Pals kids’ menu. As a mom, it’s refreshing to see they offer several think outside the french fry box side options, such as fresh pineapple and salad with low-fat ranch dressing.
To start things off, we love to order their Skillet Queso and Southwestern Egg Rolls from the appetizer menu.
Oh and we can’t forget the chips and salsa.
Miss C would eat chips and salsa for breakfast if I let her.
Can you tell chips and salsa is an essential food group for my family?
Chili’s wants to make dining out with your family an enjoyable experience so you can kick back and let someone else roll up their sleeves in the kitchen. They have a great new dining out survival guide for moms at their We Prep, You Play microsite. Although it’s a treat for my husband and I to have an impromptu dinner out, with our girls we’ve found it’s best to let them know ahead of time that we’re going out for dinner and to make sure they are not totally exhausted. Trust me, this time of year with school ending and summer gearing up it’s crazy busy.
My girls are 5 and nearly 8, so they’re easily entertained, but when they were toddlers I always made sure I had an arsenal of distractions in my purse, from little snacks such as dry cereal or raisins to tide them over until the server brought out our food to extra crayons and small board books. Chili’s dining out survival guide has fun ideas for games and activities to entertain your school age kids while you wait for your food, from Twenty Questions to I Spy, Chili’s Style to Restaurant Alphabet.
Lucky for my husband, I can be easily entertained with a margarita. Or two.
