Sumer is almost here, and Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner! So many reasons to celebrate the longer, warmer days and work up an appetite outdoors.
Our family loves to get outside and play hard. Whether we bike to the park, or go on family walks, some days I need a pass on dinner preparation and clean-up. These days I like to celebrate an evening out with friends or family and not worry about anything other than enjoying our time together. Dishes can be such a downer, right?
This past weekend we went on our first family bike ride of the season. The tandem's tires were aired up, the double trailer was hitched and I squeezed into my spandex biking shorts. It was a gorgeous day in Oregon. Finally the sun was shining and we had the perfect breeze even on the long, flat stretches. Over 23 miles was logged through the countryside, with beautiful scenery to take in. It was a fabulous day! The kids didn't even fight (too much) in the trailer. They were quite excited to shout, "Coming through" as we passed other cyclists. It was a wonderful way to spend a Sunday.
The only problem was, our 23 plus miles took up most of the day, and at the end of the ride I could barely sit, or stand! Okay, I overdid the ride a little.
The last thing on my mind was what to make for dinner! I think enjoying the day together was a great reason to celebrate with a dinner out. I think we all deserved it.
I love taking my family to Chili's because of the selection. Their children's menu has a large selection of sides to choose from with great fruit and vegetable side options. My son loves their baked apples for desert. With their $20 dinner for 2 deal my husband and I can each get exactly what we want. We like to get the chips and salsa to share and then my husband usually gets a Quesadilla and I go for the baby back ribs.
Now I am excited because there is a CoronaRita at Chili's! I have seen these going around the web, but would much rather have Chili's make one for me.
Now doesn't that look like fun? Along with a great dinner, fabulous company and a responsible designated driver, this looks like the way to celebrate. Make with Jose Cuervo Especial Tequila and Coronita, it's Chili's new CoronaRita Margarita! I would love to enjoy a glass with a big plate of Cajun Chicken Pasta.
What is your favorite entree at Chili's? Are you excited to try the new CoronaRita? Let me know in the comments below.
