family. Few things in life make me happier. I know when I cook I use only the
freshest available ingredients and tons of love. Most weeks I cook at least
five (5) days a week if not more. Seeing the smiles on my families face as we
sit down and enjoy one of my home cooked meals is…Priceless.
I enjoy cooking I have to admit sometimes this “supermom” needs a
break from her kitchen. I need to be able to sit down with my family and enjoy
a meal that I didn’t cook. I admit it; I want someone else to do the cooking
for me. However, dining out for a family of five (5) can prove to be very
expensive. Not to mention I am feeding boys who eat like men. Their appetites
are ravenous and not long satiated.
Saturday we all went to breakfast at a locally owned restaurant. We allowed the
boys to read the menu and order for themselves. It was a nice hearty breakfast
and I was full halfway through my meal. We talked and laughed and I drank my
coffee as the others finished their meals. Later, when it was time to leave the
waitress came to bring us the bill and my youngest that was age four (4) at the
time, interrupted her and said “We haven’t had our dessert yet.” Dessert? Dessert?
Really? After breakfast? Everyone in the restaurant laughed and the owner came
over and gave us a freshly baked Apple Pie free of charge to take home with us
After the “breakfast dessert” incident we
started dining out at buffet styled restaurants. The variety of foods offered
fits almost every pallet and the unlimited amount of servings helps to satiate
my family. Buffet restaurant prices vary on a daily bases but tend to be higher
on family dining days, Fridays through Sundays. I make sure all of the restaurants
we dine in offer restaurant coupons for our family to ensure we are getting the
best deals when dining out.
