CHEAP DATE...

My DD is home from college before heading to work in a couple of weeks...and she is a bundle of energy with places to go, people to see, things to sew, doctor and dentist appts., etc...you can imagine! But she spent a little girl time with me the other day! Little did she know I had saved coupons and gift cards for the outing!

We had lunch HERE. It's by Souper Salad in Quail Springs Marketplace. It's a breakfast/lunch place with pancakes, omelets, salads and sandwiches. I had a Buffalo Chicken wrap that was a little spicy for my taste, but I really liked the side salad that comes with the entrees. It's some kind of marinated tomato/cucumber dish. She got the Turkey Club which was good. Maybe you got one of those free entree coupons in the mail too! I recommend it for lunch for 2 under $10.

Then we went on to one of her favorite places - Barnes & Noble! (Her dream date would probably be coming here for an evening after he pays for a delicious meal) I happened to have saved a gift card, so we enjoyed looking around and both bought something for a mere $5, after applying the gift card.

So the un-bargain for the day - Gigi's! Of course 2 cupcakes cost as much as our lunch did!!! But it was worth it. I'm glad my daughter doesn't have to spend lots of $$$ to feel like she can have a good time with her Mom. Wonder where she got that from?
This beautiful menu makes you want to come back for more!
Carrot cake cupcake!

a first date I had with a young man....took me to eat at Deep Fork, then to Barnes and Noble for coffee. I'll admit, it was a good date. (This was not my husband, he does not do a lot of reading!)

I love that you go hang out with your daughter when she is home from College. I pray pray pray that I have the same kid of relationship with my own kids.

I have mixed feelings about that cupcake place. I went, once, and wasn't impressed but everyone talks about how much they love the cupcakes. I feel I need to give it another try.

I have a Groupon at your lunch place. I figured one day, I would use it for lunch. I work next to all those places.
