T.G.I. Friday's

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of T.G.I. FRiDAY'S. All opinions are 100% mine.

Our family is blessed since our children are still living at home.  Spending time together as a family is important to us but with college classes for the kids and work schedules and evening commitments for my husband and me, it is difficult to have the quality family time we enjoyed when the kids were younger.   We came up with an idea to do something as a family one night a week and we called it "Friday Family Night".  We all made a commitment to make sure we will be home on Friday night.  It has been successful for many years and everyone gets excited and looks forward to our Friday night date.  Our activities are simple, things like going to the movies, eating out in our favorite restaurant, bowling or billiards, shopping, or simply renting a movie and eating pizza, hot wings and popcorn at home.  It is always fun to do things as a family and we are hoping our children will continue this tradition when they have their own family.


TGIF is one of our favorite restaurants. Jeff and I have been members of TGIF "Give me more Stripes" for over a year now.  We earn stripes for every dollar we spent and once we earn so many points, it gives us the option to redeem them for free dessert or meal item on their menu.  We dine out at TGIF at least twice a month and enjoy our personal favorites. I love their sizzling chicken with mashed potato. They serve it in a hot pan that still sizzles.  All eyes in the dining room watch as the servers carry my selection since the sizzling attracts attention. Jeff loves their barbecue ribs and loaded baked potato. The kids love their pasta selections with their flavored drinks.  We frequently eat at TGIF on special event occasions like Father's Day, birthdays, or graduation events. It is one of our favorite Friday night restaurants too.


Here is an exciting news. If you like TGIF just like we do, you can bring the fun of Fridays to your own home with the new TGI Friday's "Entrée's for One".  T.G.I. FRiDAY’S “Entrées for One” These are frozen foods available in most grocery stores in their frozen foods section. They just launched nine new entrée's to choose from - Grilled chicken Mac and Cheese, Prime Rib Stroganoff, Sizzling Steak Fajitas, Sizzling Chicken Fajitas, Cajun-style Chicken Alfredo (my personal favorite) Entrées For One, Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo (our daughter's pick) Entrées For One, Creamy Chicken Pasta Carbonara, Loaded Chicken and Cheese (our son loves it),  and Sesame Orange Chicken. My husband likes the Sizzling Steak Fajitas Entrées For One and he said it tastes like the one they serve in the restaurant.
