Burger King's New Menu Items & GIVEAWAY!

My family loves to go out to eat!
It sure can get expensive. Even a fast food meal costs our family over $20!

Well, recently, MyBlogSpark approached me and asked if we would like to try out Burger King's new menu items, if they provided us a $25 gift card to buy our meal. My family jumped at the chance!

We had lots of new delicious-looking options to choose from!

Since 1954 BURGER KING® has been committed to offering great-tasting, fire-grilled food and the WHOPPER® Sandwich has been proved to be America’s Favorite Burger year after year.
Over the past nine months, BURGER KING® has created and tested more than two dozen new products and they are committed to providing you with the products that are best-in-class and true to their heritage of great taste.
Based on extensive consumer feedback, BURGER KING® is rounding out their menu to provide more choice and something for everyone!
Visit the nearest participating BURGER KING® to try any one of these new options with your friends and family today!

We went to our local Burger King, where my boys ordered the New Chicken Strips.

I ordered one of each of the new Chicken Snack Wraps, one with Ranch, and the other with Honey Mustard!

And I have enough left over to go for a new Mocha Frappe later this week. I cannot wait to try it!

My boys LOVED the chicken strips! I have never seen them eat chicken so quickly without needed to be reminded!

My snack wraps were actually very tasty!
I would have preferred a little more lettuce in them, but the chicken was juicy, and tasted really good. There was just the right amount of sauce, and the tortillas were tasty.

I will be going back to try one of their new salads. I was just not in the salad mood when we were there!
Just look at these new salads:

New Garden Fresh Salads at BURGER KING® are made fresh daily with premium ingredients that can be topped with your choice of TENDERCRISP® or juicy TENDERGRILL® chicken. Varieties include:
Chicken BLT Garden Fresh Salad ~ made with a three cheese blend, thick cut bacon, tomatoes and red onion, served with Ken’s® Avocado Ranch dressing
Chicken, Apple and Cranberry Garden Fresh Salad ~ made with crisp apples, dried cranberries, bleu cheese and Ken’s® Apple Cider Vinaigrette
Chicken Caesar Garden Fresh Salad ~ made with 100% romaine lettuce, tomatoes, shaved parmesan cheese, and home-style croutons

MyBlogSpark has also offered me an additional $25 Gift Card to GIVEAWAY to one of my lucky readers!!

Screen Time vs. People Time

My 5-year-old son LOVES his screen time!
He can pick up any device with a screen, and he just knows what to do!
We have a Toshiba Thrive tablet, which he adores. He can also play any game better than I can.

Well, he does love to watch television, he hates going to the movie theatre.
There are just too many people there!

I am torn!
I love to go to the movies.
The big screen, buttery popcorn, and reactions of other people really appeal to my sense of adventure.

Since he has been in preschool this year, he has come out of his shell, and made some friends his own age. I pray that he continues to connect with other people, when he enters Kindergarten next year. I need for him to have friends!

Today's prayer is for those of our children who we see as good kids, but who may need a little extra understanding as the come into their own personalities.

I especially think of my middle child, who at age 5 continues to be a "pleaser", and wants to clean up, organize, and generally help me out in whatever way he can! He is so sweet, quiet, and unimposing, that I almost forget he is almost 5! This little man is a blessing, and I pray that I continue to see him as such!

"But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” 1 Samuel 16:7
