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?!

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.

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.

Carols by Candlelight

We don’t make it to church often enough, for various reasons, but every year on Christmas Eve, we go to one of the four services. Every year, we load up the kids, eat dinner somewhere, and find a spot in the packed church. We pass the unlit candles down the pews and anxiously wait forContinue Reading

Stasha over at The Good Life is hosting her Monday Listicles again, and the topic this week is “What Makes A Perfect Vacation” (chosen by Staying Afloat!). This list is kind of perfect, timing-wise, because in lieu of a big Thanksgiving celebration next week, my immediate family is taking a trip instead. So here’s myContinue Reading
