Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-A is Friday!

it’s that time of year again! this friday, july13th, 2012, Chick-fil-A restaurants nationwide will celebrate the organization’s annual Cow Appreciation Day event by offering a FREE meal to any guest who visits the restaurant fully dressed as a cow! this has been a family tradition of our for a few years now. we love Cow Appreciation Day over here. that means FREE dinner at Chick-fil-A. we already love the food….and getting it free makes it even yummier. here is our picture from last year. even baby has spots! all i did was cut black spots and a bell out of cardstock and printed out these cute cow’s masks. 

so get dressed “head-to-hoof” in cow attire and be rewarded with a FREE Chick-fil-A meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner). for those “too chicken” to wear full cow costumes, Chick-fil-A will award a complimentary entree to customers partially dressed in cow attire, such as a cow-spotted scarf, purse, hat or other accessory.

Q: what does “fully dressed as a cow” mean? 
A: “Fully dressed as a cow” means an effort to be dressed like a cow from head to toe. for customers who want to join us in partial cow attire (such as the cow headband, a cow-printed hat, vest or purse) a free entrée will be given.

costume tips
• wear white and then just add cow spots. throw on a white t-shirt with white pants (even sweatpants) and stick on your cow spots using black contact paper. cut spots out of construction paper and tape them to your shirt and pants. if nothing else, you can grab an old white T-shirt and color black cow spots all over it with a magic marker, and you’ll still get a free entrée.
• not feeling too creative? search the internet for “cow costumes!”
• you can also use the cow items provided here. just print them out and tape or pin them to your clothes. you will instantly turn yourself into a cow.

here is us in 2010!

Cow Appreciation Day!

on friday, july 9th, Chick-fil-A restaurants nationwide will celebrate the organization’s annual Cow Appreciation Day event by offering a FREE meal to any guest who visits the restaurant fully dressed as a cow!

Q: what does “fully dressed as a cow” mean?

costume tips:
1. start with items that you already have at home–cow-printed accessories stashed in your closet will work perfectly. Hats, vests, scarves, neckties, pants, shoes, pajamas–just about any cow-spotted item will work. Just make sure you’re covered head to toe.

3. go to your local paint or hardware store and get a white painter’s hat and overalls. then decorate yourself with cow spots made out of contact or construction paper.
4. if you’re not feeling too creative and want an easy costume, search the Internet for “cow costumes,” and you will be flooded with full-body costumes available for purchase.

feel free to use the cow items provided here. just print them out and tape or pin them to your clothes to instantly turn yourself into a cow.

Kids eat free.

like i said before, i am totally failing at this making dinner resolution. i don’t know if it is because nothing tastes good to me, or if i am just too tired, but i really need to do a better job. thankfully, i got a bunch of recipes from all my friends last week, so i will be shopping for those recipes this week. and will be sharing my adventures in cooking next week. maybe i’ll be cured : )

anyways, after last mondays dinner adventure of scrambled eggs, i failed again tuesday. i justified it by going to Chick-fil-A’s family night where kids eat free with the purchase of an adult meal. i wanted to check it out so that i could review it with my readers.
now I don’t know if this is the case with all Chick-fil-A’s, but i went to the one in Orange and was very happy. they had a table with an employee playing games and doing crafts with the kids. the play area was clean and fun for the kids. i especially liked the fact that it only had only one door that opened into the restaurant so i didn’t have to worry about loosing the kids. and better yet, they had antibacterial wipes at the door to clean off little hands before they ate dinner. and then there was that poor guy dressed up like a cow, letting all the kids hug him, kick him and step all over his feet. i felt sorry for the cow, but it was so much fun for the kids.
i was very pleased with the kid’s meals. yes, it was fast food, and i definitely like to limit our family’s fast food intake to once a week, but they had some good choices for kids. mine got milk instead of the sodas, four chicken breast nuggets, and fresh fruit instead of the fries. and the fresh fruit cup was so good. it had oranges, strawberries, grapes and two kinds of apples. not bad for fast food. the kid’s meal also came with a Berenstain Bears book.
so if you have one of those tuesday nights where dinner is just not working out, Chick-fil-A would be a good choice.
