I am busy and always on the go. And cooking a full meal in the kitchen is not always an option for me. And I don’t like to get fast food all the time either. And when I do, I expect it to meet my standards.
So I was happy to receive some coupons to try out KFC’s Dip’ems – a bucket of 20 extra crispy tenders served with six tasty sauces (Honey BBQ, Creamy Ranch, Creamy Buffalo, Honey Mustard, Orange Ginger and Bacon Ranch) in a cute sampling lid.
And the Dip’ ems were a hit with the Smith kids. What I love most is that the KFC strips are all-breast meat, freshly-prepared and hand-breaded. My kids enjoyed ‘playing with their food’ by mixing the dips together and trying new dip flavors. The Bacon Ranch was delish and probably my favorite. The strips were good to the bone–without the bone! And they were juicy and very crisp. And for me, just eating three of them got me full. So 20 strips is more than enough to feed 4 kids.
Jojo chomped down on his chicken like a champ. And I was so surprised about the size of the strips. They are huge. Bigger than any other chicken strips out there. They filled up the bucket!
It’s also important for my family to connect over a meal. It’s challenging and in fact moms spend an average of 16 minutes each weeknight wrangling the family for dinner. That’s almost 70 hours a year! I’m pretty sure if I do a tally I’d certainly surpass 70 hours. That’s the challenge of being a mom on-the-go. We all grab fast food at time, so the least we can do is make sure it’s fresh and delicious like the Dip’ ems strips.
Here’s some fast facts on fast food:
And I’d LOVE to giveaway a few coupons for YOU to taste the strips too! Leave a comment below and tell me what are some of your challenges of being a multi-tasking mom or dad! Contest ends April 15th!
Disclosure: KFC provided my family with gift certificates to try the new Dip Ems. But all opinions are mine solely.
Never having enough time to take care of all that needs to be done. Once I feel like I have gotten ahead of the game, it seems something pops up to remind me :Girl what were you thinking trying to go to bed? There’s still so much to do!””
Its challenging to get off work to picj the kids up. Take one to the barbershop while seating and waiting helping the kids do their homework. We getvto the shop around 350 and as I write this I notice the clock saying 450 and we still waiting and trying to finish homework. Realizing by the time we get home we all will be tried and still more homework will have to be done. Fixing dinner at the moment is out the window.
There doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to complete all the tasks, but I’ve learned to do the tasks that are most important first.
It’s a challenge being a single mom and also helping raise a young grandson. there sure isn’t enough time in a day but I find my ways to make it work.
One of the things I find hardest about being a multitasking mom is making sure everyone gets the attention that they need. I always feel like someone is missing out on my attention.
