Darlin’ Deals Review ~ StoneFire Grill Lunch Specials Menu!

Stone 1

Disclaimer: I was invited to a complimentary Media Tasting at Stonefire Grill for their new Lunch Specials menu in exchange for a review and was compensated with a gift card. I was not persuaded to provide a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

If you have been following my blog for a long period of time you are probably familiar with 2 things about me personally; first I love being a stay at home Mom and secondly I love food! However, it is rare for me to have an opportunity to enjoy delicious food while I spend time with my precious children. So when I was invited to attend yet another wonderful Stonefire Grill Media Tasting Event and found out that it was during lunch hour I thought I would have to decline the invitation as I would not have someone to watch my daughter during the day. To my pleasant surprise StoneFire’s Event Coordinators welcomed the idea of bringing my daughter along. Now I know this review has yet to touch on the tasty food, but for any Moms out there I thought I would start out by letting you all know what a family friendly establishment StoneFire Grill is!

Stone Fire Mimis

The event was hosted at the West Hills restaurant in the sunny enclosed patio seating area which provided beautiful views of the rose bushes and tons of natural lighting perfect for a lunchtime meal. There was ample seating and the semi-outdoor feel provided comfortable setting for a family with small children (like mine).

The Lunch Specials Menu is the latest addition to StoneFire Grill’s ‘Freshly Prepared. Simply Delicious.’ food selection. The Lunch Specials Menu features many of their most beloved dishes paired with an individual side item such as their mouth-watering breadsticks, garlic mashed potatoes, and side salads. Here’s where the Lunch Specials at StoneFire Grill are set apart from the usual Lunch Menus at other restaurants – portion size! As is the norm with StoneFire Grill their portion sizes are beyond generous and the lunch entrees are no exception. Every time I have eaten at StoneFire I leave feeling satisfied from a great meal, without that weighed down over-stuffed feeling you get from Burger Joints, plus I have a To-Go box in hand with leftovers to enjoy for dinner!

A few of my favorites from the Lunch Specials Menu were the Sandwich + Side and the Petite Salad + Breadstick with the salad options being BBQ Chopped, South of the Border, or Golden State Kale. Being a BBQ lover I chose the BBQ Chicken Wrap from the Sandwich options and the BBQ Tri-Tip Chopped Salad for the Petite Salad selection.

My husband enjoyed the Petite Pesto + Breadstick as well as the 9″ Pizza + Side Salad. Both were super tasty re-heated later that evening for our dinner too! Oh and did I mention these fresh and tasty lunch entrees are all just $7?! With large portion sizes and a price that won’t break the bank StoneFire really hit the mark on a delicious alternative to the usual burger & fry lunches that most people gravitate towards when they want to eat out on a budget.

If you’re not completely stuffed after enjoying your lunch entrée you will definitely want to try StoneFire’s Incredible Carrot Cake or even take home a dessert such as the Famous Fudge Brownies to enjoy later!

So the next time you’re on a lunch break or even taking the kids out for an afternoon meal remember your local Stonefire Grill restaurant has a wide variety of options for even your pickiest eater!

Darlin’ Deals Review ~ Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Blu-Ray & DVD!

Star Wars

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary advanced copy of  Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Blu-Ray & DVD combo pack in exchange for my honest review. I was not persuaded to write a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own unless otherwise noted.

Now I realize this might make me automatically ousted from joining any Star Wars fan groups, but I have to start this review by saying I have never seen the original Star Wars films in their entirety. The reason I stated this little secret of mine is for those of you out there wondering if its worth watching the latest installment in the epic saga even though you are not completely familiar with all the characters and back story; my answer to you is YES, watch this one! Of course it would be helpful to really understand who’s who by knowing the origin of certain characters (such as well-known members of the Dark Side like Darth Vader) and a little info on other main characters from the original movies from the 70’s in order to fully appreciate this latest ‘episode’, but the action and intense storyline will have you hooked no matter what your knowledge of Star Wars is prior to watching.

The cinematic journey of Star Wars: The Force Awakens introduces a few new characters to the Star Wars clan such as Kylo Ren from the Dark Side (this character is why you should know a bit about Darth Vader), Finn (a Stormtrooper who has a change of heart) and a new Droid Robot named BB-8.

Throughout the film there are fight scenes, plot twists, and intense character building that will have you on the edge of your seat no matter if you’re a fan of the Dark Side or if you root for the good guys on the Light Side. My husband and 6 year old son were completely glued to the movie the entire 136 minute runtime! Be aware unlike the majority of the Star Wars movies this one does come with a PG-13 rating. This is only the 2nd film in the saga to receive this rating, the other was Episode III – Revenge of the Sith. This stronger rating it is due to sci-fi action violence sequences, as was also the reason for the PG-13 rating of 2005’s Revenge of the Sith. As a fairly protective mother I didn’t find any dialogue or visuals to be inappropriate in the film.

The Force Awakens is available on Blu-Ray and DVD format as well as a Digital download code in the combo pack. In addition this combo pack has tons of Special Features never released before.
