REAL MOM RAP
This is actually a promo for Fazoli's, but it is clever and I've joked with my son that when he goes off to college if he is missing Mom's meals, all he has to do is go to Fazoli's. When he was young, one of our weekly splurges was to the .99 cents kid's night on Tuesdays between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. and back then for a little over $5 both of us had meal, he got a toy or some little gizmo, he did a craft activity and created a fun memory for both of us.
While their prices are a bit higher now, if you sign up to receive offers via email here you can get discount coupons emailed to you, and they also some times have coupons in the Sunday paper. The current email discount through 11/28/11 is $5 off any Family Meal to-go (but you have to take it to go) and prices start at $14.99 for a Pasta Duo (choice of Spaghetti with Meat or Marinara or Fettuccine Alfredo) with a choice of a Garden or Caesar Salad with choice of dressing and eight bread sticks and is intended to feed 4 people. With the coupon, it works out to be $2.50 a person, which is cheaper than many frozen dinners but is fresher and tastier.
