Fire Birds Wood Fired Grill Review and Giveaway!

Links provided may be from affiliate programs which help support this blog. Thanks for clicking!



Have you ever been to Firebirds Wood Fired Grill?  We have two in the Memphis area: one near Wolfchase Galleria and one in Collierville.    You’ll know when you are passing by Firebirds, because you will smell a delicious smoky scent in the air!
Last night Firebirds treated my family to a wonderful dinner!  It was such a treat, and our waitress and the restaurant manager were so kind to us!  I have been through customer service training patterned after what Disney uses to train their employees, and I know good service when I experience it!  Last night was excellent service in spades. 

Let me tell you about the food!  OH, the food was SO DELICIOUS!  For an appetizer we had crab cakes and coconut shrimp.  I think I loved the tortilla slaw with mango habanero chutney as much as I loved the sea food!  The chutney is this perfect balance of sweet with a hint of heat!  YUM! 

When dinner was served it was Bleu Cheese Fillet Steak and Ribeye for the kids, Herb Roasted Prime Rib for the hubby with a smoked lobster tail, and Firebirds Chicken Pasta for me!  In a word I would say “gourmet”.  The flavor was sensational, and the presentation was beautiful!  I am not a huge fan of lobster tail, because I do not find it very flavorful, but I tried my hubby’s lobster and it was filled with delicious smoke flavor; so when I go back I will certainly be ordering something out of my norm – they just plain know how to cook at Firebirds!

Dessert was amazing!  I was sad to hear they had sold out of the Big Daddy Lemon cake, but the Crème Brulee Cheesecake was a perfect ending to my meal.  Of course, I couldn’t just eat my dessert – I had some of Brian’s Brownie with Dark Chocolate and Salted Caramel Sauces, topped with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.  It was HEAVENLY!  This is where my family will take our out-of-town guests when we want to impress them.


So what do suppose the only thing better than hearing about my delicious dinner at Firebirds is?  How about having your own delicious dinner at Firebirds???  Firebirds has generously given a $50 VIP card for one luck MMM reader!  If you want to win this fantastic prize enter here:

A HUGE "thank you" to Firebirds for contacting me and offering my family the delicious meal in exchange for this post, and for offering a giveaway to the AWESOME My Memphis Mommy readers!!

Kroger Match Up 8/8-8/14

Links provided may be from affiliate programs which help support this blog. Thanks for clicking!


Quick Facts about Kroger:
· To shop and save at Kroger you must have a Kroger Plus card. You can down-load coupons directly to your Kroger card: Kroger Digital Coupons,
· Kroger Digital Coupons can only be used once and they cannot be stacked with "paper coupons". Digital Coupons DO NOT DOUBLE, so I recommend not loading coupons under a $1.00 value.
· While you and a family member can get different Kroger cards with different numbers if it is linked to the same household address then the coupons on it will be the same.
· Please note there is a new Kroger Coupon Policy here. Kroger in Memphis and surrounding areas doubles paper coupons 7 days a week up to $.60 automatically all you need to do is use your Kroger Plus Card.
· There is a limit of 5 of the same coupon per transaction at most Kroger stores here in the Mid-South.
· Internet coupons (they call them Print at home) are limited at using only 2 coupons per Manufacturer per day per customer. Meaning you can only use 2 Proctor and Gamble coupons and then 2 Kelloggs coupons etc.
· Make sure to download all the eCoupons to your Kroger card. It's easy and can save you lots of money. Just visit Cellfire, Shortcuts, SoftCoin, and Upromise. Printable Coupons are available at Coupons.com, SmartSource, and Red Plum and Coupon Network.
· Be sure and use the coupon database to look up other products you need but don't see in the sale ad and see if there is a coupon for it.

This week at Kroger, second week of the Cart Buster Savings Event. With this event, there is not a limit you have to purchase items at. Also, there will be a high value e-coupon deal of the day

About the Match-Up:
I try to list best price items and items with coupons available.
Why do you list more than 1 coupon on a product, I can only use one Manufacturer's coupon per item right?
Yes, only 1 Manufacturers coupon per item, however I want you to know of all the coupons out there so you could get more than one item using different coupons.

If the item is 10 for $10 it is only $1.00, you do not have to buy 10 unless it is part of an event in which I will clearly state that.
Thanks Jessica!
