Fun Friday – Eating out!

I don’t know about you, but after a long week of work the last thing we want to do is cook on Friday night. Whether it’s ordering up a pizza or heading out to a local restaurant, it’s a night to relax and unwind.

But being inherently frugal, I always try to find a bargain if I can and I’m going to share some of those with you today!

To purchase certificates for reduced dining, you can check out these two sites. I’ve used them and they are pretty good. Just make sure you check all the fine print as to when you can use the certificates. For example, the one seafood restaurant we visit down the shore only accepts the certificates from October to May.

Also check your local big box store like Costco. They have also been carrying reduced gift cards to area dining spots.

Many restaurants and fast food joints offer discounts as well. Check these out to either get coupons on their sites or have specials e-mailed to you.

Fast Food Friday!

I don’t know about you, but Fridays are typically Fast Food Fridays in my house. After a long week of work, it’s time to kick up our feet, forget the diet (ack – lifestyle change!) and relax! What better way than to allow someone else to do the cooking?

Most Fridays in the summer are Five Guys Fridays. Awesome burgers made fresh on the spot with your choice of 15 – yes FIFTEEN – free toppings you can put on your burger!

You’ve got your choice of Mayo, Relish, Onions, Lettuce, Pickles, Tomatoes, Grilled Onions, Grilled Mushrooms, Ketchup, Mustard, Jalapeno, Peppers, Green Peppers, A-1 Sauce, Bar-B-Q Sauce, or Hot Sauce.

Wish I could think up a jingle to rattle all those off.

And let’s not forget Five Guys Fries. Totally awesome. Fried in peanut oil.

You can become a Five Guys Fanatic and download some wallpapers at the site. I decided to bling mine with a little topping of Caridad! Hope they don’t mind.
