Celebrating a Special Dad with #KCSteaks

Read on and you’ll find a coupon code AND giveaway…

So, my husband is hard to buy for (if you continue to read this, babe, just act surprised on the 19th). If he wants something, he buys it. If you ask him for ideas, he doesn’t have any,

I’m not alone in this struggle, right?

And Father’s Day is coming up. How do we show our love and appreciation to the guy that works extremely hard for our family but also wants nothing more than to get to spend time with us? It’s tough for him and it’s difficult to do something that shows how much we recognize and thank him for that.

It’s also tough to want to take the entire family out for dinner for a special day when there are six of us (half of whom have dietary restrictions), especially on a holiday when everybody is taking their favorite dads out so traffic is bad and waits are long.

We want him to relax on Father’s Day, and that doesn’t really involve driving for an hour with hungry kids and possibly a grumpy wife trying to herd them, right? I mean, really.

So with this busy and stressful year, we’re going the better (and more meaningful) route by staying in, showering him with homemade (secret) presents and steak. I’ll even cook it rare to really show my love (because, ew). It won’t be calm (hello, four kids), but it will be less crowded and more relaxing for everyone involved.

Doesn’t that sound, like, perfect?! In fact, with help from Kansas City Steak Company’s Big Daddy Combo, we could actually celebrate all weekend or for every meal on Father’s Day…maybe eggs and strip steaks for breakfast, T-Bones and baked potatoes for lunch, and Bacon-wrapped Filet Mignon for dinner. That’s not overkill for our favorite guy, is it?

So now that I’ve shared my brilliant Father’s Day plans, you’re probably thinking your husband (or dad or grandpa) should be treated like a steak-eating king, too, right? So how about a coupon code, and a giveaway?!

To save 15% on and order from Kansas City Steak Company, including the Big Daddy Combo, use code LUVDAD (good through December 31, 2016 and on all purchases).

One comment– share this giveaway on Facebook and comment that you did.

Thank you so much to the Kansas City Steak Company for sending the Big Daddy Combo for the Big Daddy at our house. I wasn’t otherwise compensated for this post and that’s not even the point of steak on Father’s Day, is it? All opinions of delicious steak (rare or well done) are totally my own.

*Filet Mignon is the Kansas City Steak Company’s best-selling steak, pure and simple. This filet mignon is king — butter-tender, cut from the center of the finest aged tenderloin and hand selected from premium corn-fed Kansas beef.

Established on a standard of quality, Kansas City Steak Company has been providing gourmet steaks and other top-of-the-line beef cuts since 1932. Through its catalog, online, and QVC channels, the company offers high quality Filet Mignon, Rib eye, Top Sirloin, T-bone, Porterhouse, and signature Kansas City Strip Steaks — as well as other find foods. Known for their gift giving solutions, whether you’re celebrating a special day or reconnecting with the grill, Kansas City Steak delivers only the very best.

Giveaway is open to US residents only, and entries must be in by 10 pm central, June 11.
