It's quite a story how I came to fall in love with Chick-Fil-A, but I can say, it began with a taste and a 'Ooh there are so many eats to catch up on!"
Anyway, I am now on their panel and I love it!
We are challenged to a DIY.
Am I ever good with those? Not really...or maybe I'm great :)
Chick-Fil-A has a new salad. It's called the Spicy Southwest Salad. I could have tried it a long time ago, but I was mourning my Cobb salad which was my favorite meal item from Chick-Fil-A.
And I was afraid of spicy anything :)
But I received a coupon for Mother's day and so I definitely had to venture out of my comfort zone and did order and try the Spicy Southwest Salad.
Even my kids enjoyed it! And they don't do spicy!
Now I"ll have to make this my favorite salad!
But that's not the challenge :D
The challenge is that instead of throwing away those cool containers, why not upcycle them?
I've thought of that sooo many times, but lazy won!
Anyway, I will now upcycle instead of throwing out. I usually upcycle the utensils though.
Challenge: Upcycle the Chick-Fil-A salad containers.
I've been doing that.
I can throw food into these containers quickly and run out the door. And I mean 'throw.' I usually don't have time to make it neat to take photos. It's just slam, bam and out the door running and hoping the thing doesn't fall out of my hand while trying to navigate the doors!
I usually use ziploc bags :)
For this feature, I chose my fruit snacks. Usually there's yogurt poured out in the middle for dipping.
Or sometimes it's chips and dip.
Or sandwiches, or leftover red beans and rice.
You get the ideas.
But the kids have to eat! Because they can get quite hangry if not fed!
And for some reason they always have some excuse about not eating the awful school lunches. I think we need a change somewhere again.
I'm either eating a late lunch while picking the kids up, or taking them a snack to eat on the way home because they are always ravenous after school.
So after using the salad containers, wash and dry them and then use them for whatever meets your needs.
I promise that you can even plant flowers or herbs in them. Really, the possibilities are endless!
So I did that!
Because I"m your everyday kinda hero :)
