Where to Eat

If you're looking for ideas where to take the family for lunch or dinner, here are some family-friendly places I have tried.

Disney Lunar New Year Celebration Dining/Entertainment Guide

I attended a media preview. All opinions are my own. LUNAR NEW YEAR is one of the most celebrated holidays among Asian cultures. Each country will observe it slightly different but they all commemorate with loved ones to wish each other good fortune and prosperity for the new year. I love that Disneyland Resort designates an area of Disney California Adventure Park for about three weeks (Jan. 25 through Feb. 17, 2019) so everyone who’s in the park can join in on the festivities with their family and friends. For Year of the Pig this year, guests can enjoy appearances of The Three Little Pigs (Fiddler, Fifer and Practical) in Mulan’s … READ MORE

Alpha Plant Based Burritos

Disclaimer: I received this product for free from Moms Meet (momsmeet.com). All opinions are my own. I haven’t been much of a burrito person much less a frozen-burrito person, but I do visit the frozen department from time-to-time when I need emergency items in my freezer. I remember in high school, they used to let us go off campus for lunch. Some of us ended up at the nearest QuikTrip convenience store where we can find cheap microwaveable eats plus they had a ton of drink options. It was also a way for us to try things we couldn’t get at home. For work, frozen meals were an easy choice … READ MORE

The new wings are oven-baked and sauced to order, with a choice of four flavorful sauces from Frank’s RedHot and KC Masterpiece. They go great with any pizza!

California Pizza Kitchen: Cauliflower Crust Now Available for Lunch Size + CPKids

I’ve been hesitant to try Cauliflower Pizza Crust but after having it at California Pizza Kitchen (CPK), I would get it again! My family and I went in for a tasting and were all pleasantly surprised. CPK became the first national restaurant brand to offer Cauliflower Pizza Crust in January 2018. The veggie-based crust has fewer carbs than CPK’s traditional hand-tossed pizza dough and is made with gluten-free ingredients. If you like GF and a healthier crust, you will love it! Their original BBQ Chicken is our favorite, and after changing the crust, it didn’t change the flavor. They’re now available in 7″ lunch sizes and on the kid’s menu. Now available for Lunch … READ MORE
