A tale of two lunches

So Hubby and I had to go to Weis today to mail a package… and while there, we decided to pick up lunch.

Motivated by my awesome workout and fitness talk with a trainer last night, I opted for this:


It’s a little hard to see, but it’s a salad with chicken breast, olives, green and red peppers, radishes, and just a little bit of grated cheese and bacon. Dressing is canola/olive oil mix, and a little bit of vinegar. Yummy and healthy, right? (A little pricey, though, at $3.94.)

Well, Hubby decided that “thrifty” was going to be his lunch’s buzzword. Here’s what he got.


It’s, supposedly, “heat and eat” meatloaf in sauce. You can’t see it too well, but its color is not what I’d call the ideal color for meat. And the sauce looked like it had dried to the top of it. All that, though isn’t as bad as my favorite part – the “special” label on top. He got clearance meat. Sale meat. Now, I know from my sister the grocery-store manager that there’s nothing wrong with this… it’s just getting close to its sell-by date, so the price is reduced. But I’m sorry, I just can’t support “clearance meat” for lunch.

The good news, though? It only cost $1.99.

Hubby, for what it’s worth, said he would buy meat at yard sales if it saved him money. In fact, he said if he started a band, he’d call it “Yard Sale Meat.”
