Ruby Tuesday 50% Off Deal

We decided to eat out for Easter this year. We’ve been extra busy lately and didn’t want to shop, cook and clean on our day off. We chose Ruby Tuesday simply because we had never been there before and we wanted to try some place new. Two of our three kids joined my husband and myself.

I liked that they have a salad bar. There are times when I don’t want the sides that are offered so having the option of making a salad is a great alternative.


My husband ordered the Asiago Peppercorn Sirloin. He said it was very good and the steak was cooked perfectly, but that it needed more seasoning. I ordered the grilled salmon, which was really good. I splurged and ordered a side of sweet potato fries. Some of the fries were a little soggy, but most were fine.

My daughter ordered the Bacon Cheese Pretzel Burger and she said it was delicious!! My son ordered Ribs & Southern Style Chicken Tenders. He loves the chicken, but he said the ribs were to spicy for him.

My husband and I passed on dessert, but my kids ordered something. My daughter had Double Chocolate Cake. It was yummy! Moist chocolate cake with a center of melted chocolate, with vanilla ice cream on the side.

My son ordered Peanut Butter Crunch, which is a brownie layered with chocolate and caramel, topped with nuts. We each had to try some and we all agreed – it was divine!

Gorton’s Artisan Fillets {review}

My family and & love fish and seafood. Not only is fish low in fat and high in protein, it’s rich in calcium, vitamins and omega-3’s. When Gorton’s asked us to review their new artisan fillets, we gladly accepted their offer that came with free products for us to try.


One of the ones that we tried was Roasted Garlic & Italian Herbs. It comes with five, wild caught Alaskan pollock fillets. We only buy wild caught fish and seafood so this was a definite plus for us!

The breading is made with Italian breadcrumbs, and each fillet is only 160 calories. Artisan Fillets contain no fillers, MSG, artificial coloring or flavoring.

Besides the Roasted Garlic & Italian Herb, there are three other delicious flavors for you to try; Southern Style, Lemom & Cracked Peppercorn and Southwest Tortilla. Keep reading to find out how you can try them for free!

Pollock is a light, white fish that is very versatile. I was happy to see actual fillets used, and not minced fish. The Pollock was very tasty and the breading was a nice blend of seasonings, that went great with the fish.
