We rarely go out to eat. But for my birthday or anniversary Danny likes to treat me. Yesterday we went to Applebee’s restaurant to celebrate. We had coupons for all three kids but found out that on Tuesday nights, kids eat for 99¢ anyways. I was pretty sure this meant something like a corndog and a few French fries though. But no, it was any meal on the kids menu. So Pookie ordered the chicken fingers with French fries, G requested chicken fingers with broccoli trees, and we ordered grilled cheese and French fries for Bun. All three kids got chocolate milk and also an ice cream sundae included as well. The best part, the little coloring book/menu and crayons to occupy them before the food came. But 99¢ a kid was a lot cheaper than finding a babysitter and a much better deal than McDonalds. There was plenty leftover that we brought home. (I also got a free birthday sundae and an embarrassing song to go with it.) So I guess my Works-For-Me-Wednesday works only on Tuesdays—at least here in the frozen north.
