Shamelessly eating out. Budget style!

We LOVE to eat out.  I mean L.O.V.E. it!  So last night we went to Olive Garden.  We love their salads. We love their breadsticks. We love their soups. We love their pastas.

Right now they are having my favorite sale.  It is the buy a pasta get a pasta to take home deal.  So we went.

Each of the 5 of us got pasta.  One of us doesn't like salad so she gets the soup.  The rest of us get the salad.

At the end of the meal the waitress brings out the big bag with our pastas that we get to take home.  We box up our leftovers.  This includes a few leftovers from our meals and leftover salad and leftover soup. Did you know that the salads are unlimited?  If you want to bring some home for leftovers just ask for another salad and ask that they put the dressing on the side for this one.  Each what you want and then bring home the rest.  Also the soup is unlimited too. Again just ask for another bowl and bring home the leftovers.

Tonight we had our pasta meals we brought home and salad.
Tomorrow we will have leftovers for lunch.  These are leftovers from last night in the restaurant and leftovers from tonight.

That makes three meals for us from one.  We virtually "ate out" three times!
