When is the last time you went out with your BFF just to grab a bite to eat and chat? It’s been a while for me, many of my friends are busy working, dealing with family life and so getting together can be hard. So this past weekend, I decided to take my mom out with me since she is one of my BFF’s for a ladies lunch. We headed to to try out their new salads and get in some girl time.
“I don’t know what to do about the boys. Jake is almost fifteen, dating, good head on his shoulders, gets good grades in school. Trace on the other hand—”
“Trace what?” Mom asks me.
“Well okay like yesterday, we were talking about what he wants to be when he grows up. You know what he said? He asked me if I would visit him in jail? What the heck!”
Mom laughs —
“What?” I looked at her while enjoying my lunch.
“Nothing,” she smiled. “It’s just funny how what goes around comes around.”
I had such a good time with my mom at lunch. It was nice, just hanging out and talking about stuff — like why can’t boys ever hit the toilet when the pee? I mean it’s not like they don’t have something to aim with. Or why do kids always go into the kitchen right after you clean up and make something to eat, making a mess again? We also talked about my brother who is getting married this weekend, and how mom felt about her youngest (her baby) tying the knot and how happy she is. It was so great. I never get out to talk to her (just the two of us) and had a nice time enjoying our lunch at.
I couldn’t wait to try out one of Wendy’s new salads. Mom picked the BBQ Ranch Chicken Salad. It had roasted corn in it, which I thought was unique as mom let me try a bite. I’ve never had corn in a salad. It was yummy! Mom loved the BBQ sauce. She said it was super tangy and great!
I chose the Taco Supremo Salad, and let me tell you. The photos don’t do it justice. I have never had taco chips and chili with sour cream in a salad. It was one of the most delicious things I’ve ever eaten, and so filling.
Did You Know?
Wendy’s is one of the world’s most successful restaurant companies with more than 6,500 restaurants worldwide. Dave Thomas the founder of Wendy’s always said — “It all comes back to the basics. Serve customers the best-tasting food at a good value in a clean, comfortable restaurant, and they’ll keep coming back.” and he was right. Wendy’s is the first restaurant that brought the salad bar to quick service customers more 30 years ago. And today they keep reinventing salads with new mouth-watering options.

Wendy’s new salads are really great. I love that they are 50% lower in fat grams, 29% lower in sodium, and 61% lower in saturated fat. They are prepared fresh in restaurants every day. I know because mom got her salad made without bacon. I also love you can get both half size and full sized portions, and that Wendy’s uses 100% premium all white breast meat, nothing mechanically separated.
Wendy’s recognizes that girl time is important. Check out moreof BFF’s chatting it up and sharing some good times over lunch. I’m so glad mom and I had a chance to enjoy some girlfriend time together. You should grab one of your best girlfriends and head down to Wendy’s, catch up on lunch while you enjoy 1 of their new chef inspired salads and a ladies lunch. You won’t be disappointed!
