My hubby and I had a Friday evening to ourselves thanks to the twins spending the night at Nana and Bapa’s. We were both tired after a long week so we opted to do take out from Twisted Root Burger for dinner. Hubby had the Green Chile, Guac & Pepper jack Burger and I tried the Chipotle, Guac & Cheddar Burger. The spicy chipotle sauce coupled with the cheddar and guacamole made for a smoky, flavorful burger with just the right amount of heat for this spice loving mama. The green chili and pepper jack add an underlying southwest feel that’s just perfect. These have definitely been added to have again list. The $7.99 per burger comes with lettuce, tomato onions and your choice of specialty pickle slices.  Fries, onion rings or sweet potato chips are sold separately.

The other things that might get in the way of ordering these to go is Twisted Root Burger’s policy not to take phone to go orders during lunch (between 11 and 2) or on the weekends. Who wants to stand in line for 30 minutes to place a to go order? Right?

The burgers are delicious so try them if you get a chance.

How cool is it that we’re going to have our very own Legoland Discovery Center?! My family visited Chicago a couple of years ago and we went to the one up there. It was amazing! My kids had a blast and I was beyond impressed with the fabulous Lego sculptures that were on display. There was even one of downtown Chicago.

My husband and I are looking forward to taking the twins to the new Legoland Discovery Center at Grapevine Mills Mall. Per their website, their admission hours will be the same as mall hours.

Get a special discount for buying your tickets online. You’ll pay $12.50 instead of the regular $19 and $15 ticket prices.
