Celebrity Dining

Tonight, my husband and I joined three other couples for excellent dining at Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen, and we didn't pay a DIME!  We were given the royal treatment, with a variety of menu items to choose from, which included appetizers, the main course and dessert.  "How did you get to do that?" you ask.

It was a very fun evening!
A dear friend of mine, Briana, entered her recipe into a competition for the restaurant and WON!  As a prize (outside of her creation, Briana's Broccoli Salad, being featured in the menu!), she was allowed to invite three other couples to dine with her and her husband (that's where we came in!) for FREE, and also received a $250.00 gift card to use at a future date.  How neat is that?!?!

The beautiful, and now famous, Briana!
And let me tell you, no one is more deserving of a celebrity evening than this gal!  She is one of the greatest servants I have ever known.  She is the coordinator of our local MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) Chapter—not a small feat.  There have been times in the past that I have been sick, or my children have not been feeling well, and she shows up on my doorstep with a homemade meal!  She is an incredible cook, wife, mother, friend and leader.

There it is in the menu—AHHH!!!  We were the first guests to try it.
The whole kitchen staff came out to greet our table and meet the special chef who had the winning concoction!  All evening, our party was made to feel extra special and we ate like kings.  So, the next time you dine at Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen, ask for Briana's Broccoli Salad (we affectionately shortened the name to Briana's BS).  You'll be glad you did. :)
Briana's Broccoli Salad- we all enjoyed a serving of it during debut night!
