It is time for a Fresh Start with a Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen Gift Card Giveaway

I can’t believe that 2017 is in full swing. I mean, I feel like I blinked and it is already almost Valentine’s. Now, I will admit, that January did not go quite as planned. I had all these well-drawn out plans on getting healthy, eating right, etc… and well, um, it just didn’t happen. BUT, that doesn’t mean that it can’t happen. It is time for a fresh start and February is the perfect time for it.

My fresh start is starting with getting outdoors and taking in some fresh air. I am walking more, even jogging a bit and I have to say that it FEELS GREAT!

My second part of my fresh start in 2017 is taking the time to bond with family… not just my kids and Hubby, but with family I have been neglecting a bit. You see, even though my baby brother {who is 27, by the way} lives with us, it seems like he and I have had different lives as of late. We both had full-time jobs and add on my kids and his going to college and it means that we pass each other in the hallway one coming in, the other leaving. This is why I was excited to partner with the folks at Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen again so that I could invite him to lunch.

We were both excited to check out their healthier meal options, while, of course, splurging a bit on their well-known Honey Butter Croissants.

Fresh Start Yummies

We were very excited to see some amazing menu items like their lighter options and yummy salads.

My brother chose the Grilled Baja Chicken and I chose the Grilled Chicken Pecan Salad. Folks, my salad was huge. The grilled chicken was so moist and perfectly grilled, I literally ate the whole thing.

Meanwhile, my brothers Grilled Baja Chicken was exceptional. He loved the delicious grilled chicken on Cheddar’s homemade black beans with savory rice.

By the time our lunch was through we were able to catch up on everything from family to work and school and it felt so great just spending time with him. I love that we have a close relationship and that even though life takes us in separate, crazy ways, we can still connect over some delicious food at Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen.
