How I Crowd-Sourced Ideas for the Ultimate Family Date Day in Austin, TX

I have been compensated for this post by Oros. However, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

Does your family ever do “family date night” or “family day?” We love to plan family-friendly outings, and with the three-day weekend and lots of long summer days coming up, we are looking for new things to do in Austin with kids. Now that I’ve got the new Oros messaging app (you can download it for free for iOS or Android here:, I knew that it was my go-to for planning a full day of things to do with the family.


Family (and Wallet) Friendly Dining - Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen Review

I was hosted for a meal at Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen for review purposes.  The opinions are my own based on my experience.  I was not financially compensated for this post.

Family dinnertime is important in our house.  We use it as a way to connect and converse with each other, and no electronics are allowed (aside from whatever may be playing some background music for us).  When we eat out, we love to find a place where we can still have conversation, and where we all feel comfortable.  I'd like to offer you an idea for your next family dinner outing, as this place has it all: Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen.  Click here to find a Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen restaurant near you.

What do I mean by Cheddar's having it all?  Well, first of all, the food is delicious (this is an absolute must... see more on the menu items below), and made from scratch - just like it would be if I cooked it at home.  Second, the atmosphere is perfect for families to be comfortable and share laughs and conversation.  Third, Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen is really kid-friendly, but while also offering everything adults could need as well.  Finally, the menu pricing is very wallet-friendly.  Frankly, for all that we got during our visit, I was shocked at the total.  My husband and I can barely eat out for that total, let alone feed our family of four!

I don't know about you, but I am really excited about the Royal Wedding!  I am definitely celebrating the real life fairy tale on Saturday morning with a cup of tea (I'm an Earl Grey girl) and some scones.  You can too with this low-guilt Cherry Almond Scones recipe!

Ever since our time in Devon during our UK road trip last summer, I've been trying to learn the art of making scones (see my post on what I learned my first time making authentic British scones).  This week I tried making a lower-sugar scone recipe using Stevia In The Raw®: Cherry Almond Scones (see the full recipe below).  If you are looking for more low sugar recipes to celebrate the Royal Wedding, check out these other recipes from Stevia In The Raw® too: Banoffee Cake, Earl Grey Spiked Tea, Lemon Ginger Teacake.
