My husband loves italian, but we hardly ever go out for it because it’s kind of expensive. But I just stumbled across an email club for Macaroni Grill that mike be useful for our next date night! Joining “The Dish” will get you $5 dollars towards your meal just for signing up. Sounds good to me!

It should come as no surprise to you that there is another post about sandwiches.  My husband requested a trip to our local Pita Pit today, and it did not disappoint. First off, we found coupons in both the Orlando Weekly and Bogo Magazine. You can also access Bogo Magazine online and print coupons directly from there. Once there, sign up for their email club to get special offers.

We had a “buy one pita combo get one  pita free” coupon and each got falafel pitas. You can also choose from your favorite cheese and toppings as well as sauces. Most of the meat selections are turkey or chicken, but they do have other options. The only downside is that the store is a little small and kind of loud, especially when it gets crowded. But the eating is great! And we just found out that they do deliver! Look for more coupons in the bags they put your Pitas in TO GO.  Facebook and Twitter…you guessed it!

Cheap cooking- MOSO (recipe)

In my past post about Create A Meals, I talked about how our family takes random items and throws them together into a delicious meal, giving them a strange name. This one happened because of a recipe we had planned to make called Mushroom and Onion Quinoa. Unfortunately, I had forgotten to pick Quinoa up at Target, so on the way home, I stopped by Winn-Dixie right by our house. Could not find it.

Upon coming home, my brother (who was in charge of dinner that night), decided to make some changes to the recipe by changing the Quinoa to Orzo, and adding sausage (and his own flair). The result was this yummy concoction!


MOSO (Mushroom, Onion, Sausage, and Orzo) 

feeds 7ish


2 packages of sausages or brats, sliced in pieces

1 16oz box orzo

1 32 oz box chicken broth

2 small onions, chopped

2 carrots, shredded

2 small bell peppers, chopped

1 package mushrooms, sliced

1/2 tsp dried Thyme

1/2 cup water

olive oil

salt and pepper, to taste


– Coat a medium saucepan with oil. Add onion and cook until soft. Add sausages and cook until lightly seared.

– Add other vegetables and dry spices and simmer for 2 minutes. Add water and simmer another 2 minutes.

– In the meantime, cook Orzo in the chicken broth in a large saucepan over medium heat until tender and the liquid has reduced a little.

– Once the orzo is done, add vegetables to it and simmer another 5 minutes.
