Want some help with the groceries this month?
Enter to win a $50 Walmart gift card as well.

The thought of taking the night off from cooking dinner sounds so wonderfully appealing right now.

Nine times out of ten, if my husband asks me where I want to go out to eat, it’s Cracker Barrel. I’ve shared my devotion to that restaurant here on my blog many times, and my love of them runs deep. The memories that our family has from our years of eating there always causes me to smile and sigh.

You see, I am not a fancy, gourmet type, eat out kind of girl.  Just give me a choice of down home goodness any day and I am so very content. Match that with the fact that I can browse the gift shop, play checkers and sit by the big roaring fire while I wait, and I am more than happy.

I don’t really know why we even look at a menu anymore. Five out of the seven of us chose the same entree each time. Peach pancakes, Uncle Hershel’s Breakfast, Grilled Chicken Tenderloin and lots of Hash-brown Casserole can always be found around our table.

My mouth is watering just thinking about it, and I bet looking at my pictures causes you to do the same.

One of my fortunate readers is going to win a $100  Cracker Barrel Gift Basket filled with some of their favorite products. Do you see the above basket? Yes, I already received one and you are going to get the same thing. It’s so fun!

Since it’s Tasty Tuesday, and I know many of you love kitchen products, not only will you receive fun food items, but you will also receive one of their Cast Iron pans. I’m slowly purchasing a variety of  sizes for my Cast Iron collection because theirs nothing better than a loved and fully seasoned skillet.

If you don’t live close to a Cracker Barrel, most of these items are on sale online. A  fun new fact that I didn’t know is that you can visit any Cracker Barrel location and handpick items from the store to fill a basket with games, sweet treats or goodies. They’ll wrap and decorate the custom-made basket or bundle at no additional cost, and that really makes a great gift.

One Winner will receive this $100 Gift Basket from Cracker Barrel:

Lodge Logic Skillet
Cracker Barrel Pancake Mix
Cracker Barrel Natural Syrup
Cracker Barrel Coffee
Rocking Chair Mug
Cracker Barrel Spiced Apple Butter
Cracker Barrel Fried Apples
Jumbo 3-in-1 Jumbo Checkers
Traditional Peg Game

GooGoo Supreme
Cracker Barrel Pecan Log
Cracker Barrel Praline Fudge
Bob’s mint sticks
Thin sticks
