Monday as Hubby and I set at Cracker Barrel carefully examining our check, it hit us. What could we spend with $68?! No we did NOT spend the whole $66 there. But we spent it on three meals eating out Sunday after church (with the boys), Monday for breakfast (at Huddle House) and then lunch/supper Monday at Cracker Barrel. Let me break it down........
We ate at a local restaurant Sunday after church. I knew the boys would never last until we got home, since church was over late (12:45pm) and they had already eaten all of their snacks. We opted for this place since it was not crowded. You know what I'm talking about if you have/ever had small children (hungry children no less). Hubby had a hamburger steak and fries, tea. I had tea and a black/bleu salad. The boys shared a chicken finger plate and had water (they were out of milk). We ordered cheaper items on the menu. The total was about $28!
Monday morning at Huddle House we just hubby and I) each had coffee and an omlett. The total was about $16.
For lunch/supper Monday we had Cracker Barrel. I had the daily special (baked chicken, dressing and green beans) and tea. Hubby had the country fried steak cpmes with three sides and tea. The total was about $21.
With all that being said, according to the grocery and drugstore sales papers this is what I could have bought for that $66.

Total $65.99................ Those are itmes I would stock up on, not necessarily make meals from for the week. A much better deal than what we spent the $66 on eating out.
