We’re giving away a $50 Chili’s Gift Card! Keep reading for more information on how to enter.
Back-to-school season is in full swing. If you aren’t back yet, chances are your kids are off to the first morning bell ringing soon. For our family this means more schedules to coordinate with after-school clubs and organizes, music lessons, sports and homework. Our days become full to the brim, and our evenings packed with activities as I try to manage four kids.
For us, we plan a weekly menu to help us from getting overwhelmed and to get us through the weekly chaos, but there are times when we’re all pulled in so many different directions before dinner that there’s no chance to get everything all jammed into the evening. Plus, my family has a great appreciation for good food and not fast food. For those nights we may just toss something together quick, but the option to eat out comes up.
We were recently given a $50 gift card to Chili’s Grill and Bar to try out their new menu featuring fresh ingredients. For us, this meant guacamole, fajitas and plenty of chips and salsa. All were a hit with the kids, and it was great to be able to eat and leave without worrying about the prep and the cleanup, which can be substantial when you’re a younger family of 6.
We’re giving you a chance to win a $50 Chili’s gift card to treat your family to a night off! The contest runs now through Tuesday, August 31st at 11:59 p.m. and each reader will have two chances to win!
1. To enter, simply tell me below in the comments what nights of the back-to-school season you could really use the night off. Is it when there’s a PTA meeting and sports all on the same night? Do you have three kids with different schedules in different schools with different curriculum meetings and parent-teacher conferences that just drive you batty? Maybe the nights you need a break are the weekends, when you have worked so hard all week managing everyone’s schedule and homework that it’s time to just relax and do something together as a family.
2. Tweet about this contest and come back and let me know you have!
