Summer is here and for most of us busy mommas that means it is time to relax and have some fun. I am normally not a big cook. I mean I prepare the average 2-3 meals a week but during the summer I chill. That is why I was so excited when Applebee’s contacted me to try their new wood fired menu items.
My youngest daughter and I headed to the Cutler Bay location. The managers were awesome and even gave us a tour of the kitchen. (The little one thought we were on a field trip) He showed us how they cut, season and grill fresh meats daily. We also saw the wood soaking and all of the workers preparing for a very busy Friday afternoon.
After our tour we were really anxious to try the food. I ordered the Southwest Salad with marinated steak. The lil one had chicken fingers and fries. Our waitress was very pleasant and took great care of us. The food was delicious!
Starting this Summer, the Applebee’s menu will include:
- 8 oz. and 6 oz. Hand-cut USDA Choice Top Sirloin Steaks
- Hand-cut Bone-in Pork Chops with Honey Apple Chutney
- Cedar-grilled Salmon with Maple Mustard Glaze
- Grilled chicken breast
So take a night off from the kitchen and head to your neighborhood Applebee’s. You deserve a break! Oh and did I mention that they have curbside? #kidapproved #win
