What to make for dinner or where to go for dinner is often the hardest decision you'll make all day. Maybe I'm exaggerating a little bit, but have you ever thought about how long it can take for a group of people to all agree on one thing to eat or one place to go? If you're anything like me, you hate making that decision. You don't have a taste for anything in particular, you don't like the pressure, or you just don't like making decisions. Better yet, everyone always looks to you, because you are the "picky one" and it doesn't really matter to them. Nice try guys. I get the same thing everywhere I go, so where I want chicken tenders from that night doesn't really matter. It's really what you have a taste for. #allielogic
Once the decision is finally made, you usually end up with anywhere from a 10 minute wait to an hour wait, depending on where you go, the time of day/night, and if you're from a military town, whether it's payday weekend or not (yes it's a real thing). You rationalize that "it's probably like this everywhere" or "I'll wait for an hour if I'm not responsible for the dishes" (no? just me?). By the time you finally get your food, you're so hungry that you've eaten most of your meal in 7 minutes and you are so full you can barely move.
Don't worry, I have a point and I'm getting to it right now. What can you eat that gives you the dinner out feel, with a very quick and easy clean up, no long wait, and that will have your belly full from the comfort of your favorite pair of yoga pants?
That's right. Chili's® is now offering a line of at-home meals!
Chili's® offers a variety of options. You can pick up a quick individual meal for lunch at work, all the way up to a family size option.
With the variety of options (and great prices!), it was difficult to select my favorite, but I ended up choosing the Bacon Mac and Cheese in the Family Size.
Not only does Chili's® At Home meals give you the option to stay home and enjoy dinner in your yoga pants, but it's very easy to make! Very little preparation and in less than an hour you have an expensive and yummy meal to share with your family (or keep all to yourself)
In keeping with the fact that this meal is from Chili's®, the jalapenos add big, bold and tasty flavors of Chili’s® at Home.
I paired my Bacon Mac and Cheese with grilled chicken and only had one serving. (I just lied there, I had a few servings). I even made this meal before my family got home and they had no idea that it came from the frozen section. Talk about a success!
I wouldn't like hearing about something so tasty and not having the option to try it out myself. Because of this, you can click here to get a coupon, so you too can pick out your next meal!
