Guilt-Free Date Night Giveaway!

Today I'm excited to do (my first) blog giveaway! We tried Chili's Guiltless Grill this weekend and it was good. I thought I would miss my usual Boneless Buffalo Wings or Big Mouth Burger but I was pleasantly surprised at how good our food tasted. All of the Guiltless Grill items are under 750 calories and 25 grams of fat and come with a good sized side of steamed vegetables. I tried the Chicken Platter and Sam had the Carne Asada Steak. I expected his steak to be miniature but it was actually a good size.I got 4 certificates from BzzAgent and it was tempting to keep the other 2 for ourselves but ultimately decided it would be better to have a a giveaway to spread the word about the Guiltless Grill menu. Besides the grilled chicken and steak, they have a chicken sandwich, grilled salmon, black bean burger, grilled tilapia or honey glazed salmon available too. Leave a comment on this post and you'll be entered to win 2 certificates for a free Guiltless Grill entree from Chili's, and I'm going to throw in my copy of the movie Fireproof. Enjoy a delicious, light dinner with your sweetheart, then go home and watch Fireproof together. If you are married and haven't seen Fireproof, I recommend it. It's not going to win any awards for sure, and I admit biting my tongue so I wouldn't laugh at some of the cliches but it really is a feel-good movie with an important message. If you don't win, consider buying a copy for yourself to show support. After you watch it pass it on to a friend. My mom bought copies of the movie for all of her married kids for Valentines and I confess my first thought was I wasn't particularly interested in watching a Christian movie about marriage, then I remembered I am a Christian! And I'm married. And Kirk Cameron is still kind of cute. If you seek after things "virtuous, lovely, of good report or praiseworthy," this movie is for you! So leave a comment on this post by midnight Friday 3/20 and I will announce the winner (chosen by random number generator) Saturday. Good luck!

You know how to get me excited for a date night! Even if I'm not randomly chosen, the movie and food are great ideas for when Robby and I are drawing a blank for fun. Thanks!

What a wonderful giveaway; the perfect date night. I did see the movie and like you, it certainly didn't offer any award winning acting but the underlying message was real and honest and worthwhile.

katie, you're so nice to give your free dinner passes away. i think i would've been a bit more selfish and kept them for another date night. and i've heard that movie is good for marriages. maybe since it's about a fireman i can trick louie into watching it with me. :)
