We decided to take a detour with our lunch mission!
We wanted to keep it real! We did what we would normally do for a treat and ordered takeout for our mission instead of going somewhere to eat. It's just too expensive. For a family of four, just to get burgers somewhere, your looking at OVER $40.00 without drinks!! Crazy! The frugalness in me "SCREAMS ", that's at least 4 packs of diapers and box of wipes, or 1/2 tank of gas, or a weeks worth of groceries (YES, I CAN MAKE $40 LAST FOR A WEEK OF BREAKFAST, LUNCH, AND DINNER!!!) !!!, on and on! I just couldn't do it! Going out to eat STOPPED when I had to stay home to care for Lucas. It's just embedded in my mind now that going out to eat is a serious waste of money. We went on a trip earlier this month and had lunch and I'm still not over the shock of it! LOL I wanted to share our favorite place that we are able to splurge on when we do get to have a treat.
Our Local Genuardi's Markets have Pizza's for $5.00 every weekend. That' s more in our budget! LOL The whole family can eat for $5.00! I think its wonderful that this store is trying to help the average Joe or Debbie who need to save money! LOL
There is a man named Rocco there who cooks the pizza's and he has to be the nicest guy I've met!!!! He knows about Lucas and his eating issues. For a time, Lucas would only eat Pizza from him!!!!!!! I don't know what it is about the pizza's he makes but we were so desperate for Lucas to eat at a point that we literally would have to go into the store to get his schedule so that we could plan out Lucas's meals!!!
When I talk and share information with my blogger friends, I mean what I say, and only say what I mean so when I find people and stores like this that go out of their way to help someone I think that its worthy of spreading the news!!!! I told him about our mission and right away he was all for helping us and couldn't be happier to share our lunch mission with you!
I loved that I was able to call to order the food in a safe, hands free, way while I was out with the bluetooth capability that was in this car! All of these features make life so much easier when you're a busy mom, constantly on the go!
