Justification of Sushi

As I mentioned in the previous post, I decided to go out for sushi for lunch yesterday. It aint your typical $4 lunch meal from Burger King. My lunch cost me $15, eek. But I seeked for justification, as usual. My boss is taking my entire team out for lunch today. I'm having free meals for the entire weekend, except on Sunday but I will be eating at home, I think. So that justified my $15 lunch meal yesterday.

Somewhere off the point, I am trying to cut my lunch costs (except for justifications as one mentioned above), by bringing my lunches to work, such as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and apple sauces. Of course, there are mornings when I am not in mood to prepare my sandwich for lunch at work, so I bring in frozen lunches such as hot pockets. As for those frozen lunches, I try to look for best deal, like try to spend less than $2 per frozen meal. Hot Pockets package usually cost around $2.50 (with coupon or on special) so thats approximately $1.25 per pocket ( a package comes with 2 pockets). Of course, sandwiches are the best deal of all, because you buy a loaf of bread, and you use it everyday for lunch, using up 2 slices, and spread with peanut butter and jelly. You get a satisfying meal for cheap, along with fruits like bananas or apples. They don't cost much.

As for going out to lunches, we tend to go to places where they do specials- Talk of The Town, for instance. All of their burgers are half priced every Wednesday. It is a ritual for some of us. Their burgers are HUGE and the meal comes with french fries, and with a cup of water, I pay $5 (with tip) every time. Pretty good deal for a full meal that lasts me til practically 8 pm at night, then I eat small dinner. Other restaurant, which is my favorite Mexican food in Johnson County here, offers cheap lunches but very fulfilling meals. I pay $5 every time I go there, including tip and taxes. Mmmm mexican....

Now I'm going to fulfill my hunger by heading out to Olive Gardens with my team... have a nice lunch!

May I suggest making a large batch of something...stew, pasta, soup, lazagna etc. Cut it into single servings and freeze it in those gladware type containers. Leave 2 or 3 in the freezer at work. When you don't feel like making a PBandJ (which are fantastic, by the way), you can just grab a frozen meal.
