See what’s new at Red Lobster & Longhorn Steakhouse (gift card giveaway ends 6/28/13)


Red Lobster

I have been cleaning all day. I’m exhausted! Unfortunately for me it’s dinner time and I have to come up with a satisfying meal for my entire family.

It’s days like this I wish I could just pile my family in the car and head off to one of our favorite restaurants and let them make dinner for me and my family (as a bonus I don’t have to do dishes).

Earlier today I wrote about fish oil and the how eating fish is healthy for you. Ever since I wrote that post I have been craving seafood. Mmmm… I could go for some seafood right now.

I could sure go for some Red Lobster right now. Especially because they have a great promotion going on right now.

Red Lobers Mix and Match

Now through July 7, 2013, you can create your own winning combination with Red Lobster’s first ever Seaside Mix and Match. For only $12.99 you get a fresh, crisp salad, unlimited Cheddar Bay Biscuits (yummy!) and your choice of two entrées from a selection of seven new and classic dishes.

One dish available on the menu is their new Cheddar Bay Biscuit Shrimp & Lobster Pot Pie. This mouth-watering dish combines the signature Cheddar Bay Biscuit with shrimp, lobster and vegetables in a delectable creamy sauce. I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY want to try this! It looks so good!

Also on the Seaside Mix and Match menu is the Parmesan Crunch Shrimp which also looks amazing.

If a heart steak is more your style, LongHorn Steakhouse also has a promotion going on right now (through July 7, 2013) called Steaks that Sizzle that features three new flavors – spicy, smoky and bold. Check out their new flavors.

  • New! Smoky Double Bacon Sirloin
  • New! Spicy Jalapeño Cheddar Sirloin
  • New! Bold Balsamic BBQ Sirloin

Longhorn Steakhouse Steaks that Sizzle

The Bold Balsamic BBQ Sirloin sounds amazing. I love anything made with Balsamic. Its very flavorful.

To find a Red Lobster near you visit www.RedLobster.com.

To find your nearest LongHorn Steakhouse visit www.LongHornSteakhouse.com.

You can also find both restaurants on Facebook and Red Lobster on Twitter.

One lucky reader will win a $20 in gift cards which can be used at either restaurant (or any other Darden restaurant – Olive Garden, Bahama Breeze or Seasons 52).

This giveaway is open to US residents only and will end on June 28, 2013 at 11:59 PM (EST). The winner will be chosen at random using a random number generator from all eligible entries. The winner will be notified via e-mail and will have three days to reply or a new winner will be chosen in their place.

To enter please leave a comment on this post and tell me which restaurant you plan on using the gift cards to if you were the lucky winner?
