Give The Gift of P.F. Chang’s

This post brought to you by P.F. Changs. All opinions are 100% mine.

It is that time of year when we turn to gift giving and hectic schedules that tend to leave little time to make and sit down for dinner.  For those of you already beginning to feel that stress and hectic schedule, have I got a help for you.

P.F. Chang’s is one of my favorite restaurants.  I could go there seriously any day of the week.  I can never get enough of their Chicken Lettuce Wraps.  I know it is technically an appetizer but there are those days when I just don’t want to share them with anyone so I will order them as my main dish.  {Seriously, I am drooling all over my keyboard just thinking about them.}  When we do get the Chicken Lettuce Wraps as an appetizer, there are plenty of amazing dishes to choose from.  To be honest, I have two favorite dishes there that I usually choose between.  And it always works out in my favor to go with my hubby.  I choose one of my favorites and sample whatever he orders that day.  My favorites are hands down the Crispy Honey Chicken and the Sweet & Sour Chicken.  To me these are timeless classics that have been perfected by P.F. Chang’s.

Enough with the salivating over great food and on to the really exciting stuff.  This holiday season, P.F. Chang’s is helping to take the stress out of gift-giving.  A P.F. Chang’s gift card is a perfect gift for anyone, friends, family or colleagues.  And while you are there picking up gift cards to give, P.F. Chang’s wants to help your stress levels, because when you buy $100, you will receive a bonus $20 gift card to treat yourself.  SO why not stop in at P.F. Chang’s buy some gift cards for others and pick up dinner while your there for yourself?

Who in your inner circle is most deserving of a P.F. Chang’s gift card??

Pei Wei: Sriracha Pineapple Pork Lettuce Wraps

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PeiWei. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am a food blogger and I love to cook and eat homemade food, but I also really LOVE eating out.  It is no secret, I love going out to eat.  I always have, I can't help myself.  For one, I love not having to spend time in the kitchen and most of all, I love that there is no dishes for me to do.  My kitchen stays clean and I enjoy great food.  It is a win-win.

One of my favorite restaurants is Pei Wei.  My family loves it as well, it is actually one place that we can all agree upon.  My kids (and myself) absolutely love their Honey Seared Chicken.  And how can you resist their lettuce wraps?  It is almost impossible for me to go to Pei Wei and not order lettuce wraps.  They make a perfect lunch or a great appetizer for dinner.  And I get to share ground breaking news with each of you.  There is a new addition to the lettuce wrap family, but it is only here for a limited time (through December). 

The New Sriracha Pineapple Pork Lettuce Wraps feature all natural, wok-seared pork, and a combination of fresh cut ingredients–pineapple, red onions, and red and green peppers–topped with a kick of Pei Wei's own Sriracha sauce and served with cool, crisp lettuce cups.  And like many other options on the Pei Wei Menu they are reasonably priced at just $6.95.  Don't forget to Explore the full Pei Wei Asian Diner menu 

So the next time you are out and need a quick lunch or a great appetizer for a quick dinner; your local Pei Wei has you covered.  Pei Wei, owned and operated by P.F. Chang's China Bistro, offers a menu of fresh, high quality Asian inspired cuisine featuring 35 fresh, handcut ingredients.  The restaurant provides a fast casual dining experience that you are sure to love.  Don't forget that each item on their menu is made to order, you can customize each dish to your liking.  Pei Wei also offers a wide variety of gluten free and vegetarian options.

Did you know that October is National Pork Month?  What could be a better way to celebrate than trying Pei Wei's new Sriracha Pineapple Pork Lettuce Wraps?

We Scream “Free Ice Cream”

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Unilever Ice Cream. All opinions are 100% mine.

It doesn’t get much better than ice cream on a hot summer day.  When Unilever contacted me and asked me to try six of their delicious ice cream products, I became the coolest mom around.  When I told my kids that we were going to be tasting six different ice creams, they went crazy with excitement.

We were privileged to taste Fruttare, Magnum Ice Cream , Popsicle, Breyers, Good Humor and Klondike.  We were able to choose which variety of each we wanted to try.  So away to the store we went.  And leaving the grocery store with a shopping cart of ice cream is a big deal!

So, here is the skinny: we selected Mango Fruttare, Double Caramel Magnum Ice Cream, Jolly Rancher Popsicles, Heath Bar Ice Cream, Reeses Ice Cream Cups from Good Humor and Mint Chocolate Chip Klondike Bars.  Are you kidding me, it was an ice cream heaven in my freezer.

After a week long of ice cream sampling, I asked each of my kids their favorite.  And the results are in – Miss M loved the Heath Bar Ice Cream from Breyers, Mr. C loved the Jolly Rancher Popsicle, little Miss K went with the Reeses Ice Cream Cups from Good Humor and drumroll please my favorite of all the delicious choices has to be the Fruttare in Mango flavor.  It was a hard decision to make, because honestly they were all delicious.  I really had a hard time choosing between the Fruttare and the Mint Chocolate Chip Klondike Bars.  Really though you can’t go wrong with any of them.  Check for any of these varities and many more at your local grocery store.
