I'm watching the budget, but cuban food is calling

October 17th, 2008 at 06:26 pm

With the economy as it is, we are watching every penny. We're very frugal, but sometimes I just want what I want when I want it. You know what I mean?

Okay, so we just discovered this wonderful cuban restaurant five-minutes away. Hadn't tried cuban food before that, but basically it's just caribbean or island food. I LOVE it! I actually dream about it, and they have a great dinner special for $6.99 before 4:30pm.

So one thing we have decided to do to save money is to get food to go (no tip), and we are ordering a regular entree and two kids meals. Come on, I'm a kid at heart, right? Anyway, kid's meal portions can be bigger than adult meals at times.

I'm too excited!

What is it that you want when you want it, and sometimes you just got to have it?

    It's always about eating out with us...we both love to eat out and would rather not cook...expensive habit.

    Zaxby's! I'll go and by their Chicken Finger kids meal for around $4.00! 2 chicken strips, fries and a drink! You can't beat that! I just tell the person I'm ordering from "yeah my daughter wants a sprite with that." Yeah right!
