Local Fort Worth Restaurant Deals: Happy Hours, Weekday Specials, Weekend Brunch & Dessert! 

I have spent some time gathering local Fort Worth Restaurants into one happy place. Do yourself a favor and copy this list and somehow get it into the “notes” app on your phone, so you have it accessible whenever you need a fresh idea of where to dine. I used this yesterday and saw that it was $10 backdoor chicken night at Velvet Taco, so I gave it a try and got a thumbs up from the whole family.

An * indicates a special extra info about a restaurant… a particularly good deal or Gluten Free options. Check down at the bottom for the extra info.

A steal @ Velvet Taco

I keep on going absent with my writing,  but I hope to be more intentional about blogging even if it’s short, sweet, and not deep at all. This post is about practicality. I have been gathering / creating a list of Fort Worth restaurants this week and finding out about their happy hours, weekday specials and brunches. Today I took advantage of a Monday special I hadn’t heard about before….

Backdoor chicken @ Velvet Taco. Sounds shady doesn’t it? It is a little bizarre I might add… The restaurant Velvet Taco on West 7th street has a main entrance and a side window. On Monday’s they have a killer steal…. Half price on their rotisserie chicken meal.



Normally it’s $20 for the bag, but in Monday’s you sneak over to the side window… Knock or ring the bell, and they will hand you a bag for $10.


What’s in the bag? Rotisserie chicken, corn (like a spicy cream corn), pico de gallo (very tasty), and a salsa (spicy too)! Oh, and 6 tortillas. Overall I loved it. My kids liked it minus all the spicy stuff.

Sorry the picture isn’t the best quality but this is what we got for $10 and I bought 2 bags so we’d have some leftovers.

Have you ever been there? This was my first experience. What else do you like to eat there?

Xoxoxoxo,

Sarah

Welcome to Wine & Myrrh

Welcome. It feels a little strange to think someone might actually read my blog. This is my first post EVER into the massive blog-o-sphere. I NEVER thought I would blog. I don’t see myself as a good writer (probably not fair to compare myself with other amazing blogs) , and I avoid venturing  into new things. Well, here I am. Blogging.

Wine & Myrrh is already impacting my heart. I’ve had to come to a place where I felt like my opinions and stories were worth sharing. I shared a part of my story a few months ago on Facebook about a miscarriage I had and I couldn’t believe the amount of feedback. I realized that it’s not ME on this journey… we are ALL on this journey together, but our individual paths look a little bit different. After that Facebook post, I really prayed and felt I was supposed to begin sharing my story. All of it. No doubt some parts will likely be boring, but I hope  other parts will encourage, strengthen, and increase the faith of those reading.

Why Wine&Myrrh?  Here’s why…

Biblical Meaning
Mark 15:23 “Then they offered him (Jesus) wine mixed with myrrh, but he did not take it.” Both the wine and the myrrh would have helped relax and numb Jesus’s pain while He hung on the cross, however HE REFUSED IT.  Not only did it fulfill a prophecy that He would drink vinegar, but Jesus bore 100% of the pain for us, when He could have easily had just a little bit of relief. Wow. Insert “Jesus loves me” song here. I know He loves me.

Wine
– I like wine. 🙂
– Symbolizes Miracles: Jesus turned water into wine.
– Symbolizes Jesus: wine symbolizes His blood poured out for me and you.
– Represents joy, celebration, and festivity, & the abundant blessings of God.
– Also symbolizes our need for self control (in all areas of life).

Myrrh
-Symbolizes Beauty & Marriage – it was a popular custom to lay a bundle of myrrh on one’s chest while sleeping as a beauty treatment in preparation for a wedding.  Esther was provided oil of myrrh before her wedding.— Song of Solomon 1:13
– Symbolizes bitterness, suffering, and affliction. The Hebrew word for myrrh is Mowr which means “distilled,” and comes from the root word Marar which means “bitterness.” The baby Jesus would grow to suffer greatly as a man and would pay the ultimate price when He gave His life on the cross for all who would believe in Him.
-Symbolizes Christ’s Return: Revelation 8:3-4 tells us that the original altar of incense continues to be used before the throne of God in Heaven. Psalm 45:8 describes Yeshua’s (Jesus) garments: “All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia…” (This oil blend smells AMAZING!)
-Myrrh is an essential oil – it has incredible healing properties AND essential oils have become my passion and purpose in this season of life.

So, what does this all mean to me? God is good. He has provided so many good things for me including wine and myrrh, but because they are good doesn’t mean there is no limit. Like the saying goes there can be “too much of a good thing”. Too much wine leads too drunkenness and possibly even death. Too much myrrh… honestly I don’t know what happens with the ingestion of too much myrrh resin or essential oil, but I’m guessing  it wouldn’t be a good idea. Today’s society is a “feels good = good” society. I believe I have a responsibility to take care of myself, my family, and my friends and family.  I do my best to use the Bible as my guide for right and wrong… mixed in with what the Holy Spirit tells me and sometimes a ‘lil ol common sense.

Thank you for reading and joining me on this journey. I pray abundant blessings over you and yours during the 2015 year.

Love, Sarah

Ezekial 47-12
