9 Days 11 Dollars: Dinner #2
We're only on Day 3 of the Great Dinner Experiment and are already the recipients of a pity dinner.
My sweet mother generously brought us a fabulous dinner last night. Initially I was reluctant to accept the offer...it did feel a bit like cheating. But after insisting she would only bring leftovers and would also watch my child while I lay around eating bon bons, I relented.*
This is typical of B Daddy's dinner plate. Heaven forbid his foods should touch one another.
Since dinner was free and I have no fancy Dollar Per Diner statistics to throw at you - I should share what I did for lunch with you.
Uh huh. I can see you drooling right now.
And the cost? $0.00
Our local Chick-fil-A was offering FREE Chick-fil-A chicken sandwiches yesterday during lunchtime! So being the frugal gal I am I thought I would drive on over and partake of their generosity. I figured the line would be ginormously long and I'd end up foregoing the whole idea because I didn't have 30 minutes to wait in line for a $4.00 sandwich.
But leave it to the wonderful folks at Chick-fil-A to have me through the line with my warm bag of deliciousness in only 4 minutes. Bravo guys...you have really helped a gal out this week.
*I jest! There are no bon bons in the pantry.
