Y'all know I love me some Chili's.How could I not when it's all we had growin' up?!?! Well, they love me right back and therefore this post is sponsored by them and Bellisio. 



Y'all know I love me some Chili's. Remember the whole: growin'-up-in-this-town-we-ain't-have-nothin'-but-a-McDonals-and-then-when-I-was-12-we-got-a-Walmart. Well, one of the first real restaurants, that wasn't mom and pop, Cici's or family owned that we got was a Chili's.I was in high school and it was the biggest deal ever. We had another place to go to Friday Night after the football game other than Cicis. If y'all know how many countless hours I spent in that place in a back corner booth eatin' all they cheesecake. Ya see, two of my HS bestfrans had first jobs at Chili's. The manager was a family friend of one of the girls and she got them hired on. They got discounts and bein' the broke HS kids we were, we ate all they cheesecake. What made it worse? It would never fail that we would always come in right before closin'. The waiters would always look at us and shake they heads. They already knew and we had no shame. No shame I tell y'all. We should have but we didn't.

If I wasn't bein' racthet and actually ordered food it was always the Cajun Shrimp Alfredo or the Cajun Chicken Alfredo. Always. I still remember the first burger I ever tried from Chili's and who I was with. I also remember my first day of Kindergarten like it was yesterday so there's that. Did I mention that it's lunch time here and this post is makin' me hungry. I bet Billy is eatin' all kinds of wonderful. Sidenote: I gave Billy the leftovers so he had lunch today and tom.




Y'all know what else I love? I love me some frozen food. It's a situation. It really is.So much. In High school all my sister ate was frozen food. She would store them in the drill team locker room. If only the band hall had had a proper microwave. I think it was done on purpose to make us leave. We spent enough time in that place as it was. Anyways back to my love of Frozen food and less random about my sister.

You know who else loves frozen meals? Sherry does. I texted her to see if she wanted to PAAARTY and try Chili's new at home meals. The response I got was priceless. It read: Yep! My Momma ain't home so I gotta eat somehow. FEED MEEEEEEE. Oh my, Jesus, and eat we did!
I spend a lot of time hangin' out and generally just havin' fun. I think to think I'm blessed. My Momma calls it privileged. Whatever. I'mm enjoy my 20's not havin' to be tied down to anythin'. Things like all these new meals from Chili's is gonna make it extra easier to hang out. I before I could even out the car in park Sherry had the door open usherin' me in. Y'all it took longer to snap the photos than it did to cook that Alfredo. The Chicken Florentine took a tad longer but you could always skip the wait and cook it in the microwave. I kept bein' impatient and openin' the oven and lettin' out all the heat. But the best part is that many of my favorite Chili's entrees are now available to take home. They even have single serve. Can I get a - Praise baby Jesus, thank you Chili's and a yes ma'am.


It was a beautiful day in Texas so we sat by the pool and enjoyed our food. Then we watched Orange is the New Black. I had never seen the show and personally don't see the obsession. But I did like that Crazy Eyes actress. She was WERKIN' it.

Now go get ya some and let me know what's your favorite meal from Chili's
