Macaroni Grill: Sign Up and Save

A hearty ~~THANK YOU~~ goes to Jill of Frugal Plus for posting about this!  I love Macaroni Grill!  And while it isn’t exactly cheap eats, it is (in my humble opinion) good eats.  So, a couple times a year (when I’m already in Greensboro), I sneak over and indulge. 🙂   In order to spare my budget just a little bit, I only order a cup of soup and a cheesecake.  Now, they give you free bread anyway. So, I get soup, bread, and a delicious dessert for less than the price of one entree.  Yum!  By the way, I don’t want any fruity stuff on my cheesecake.  I always ask for their chocolate ganache.  I love a good chocolate and I love a good cheesecake.  A good chocolate on a good cheesecake is my foodie version of  Heaven on earth!

OK, so here’s the deal, if you go here and sign up for the Mac Pack, they’ll send  you updates and special offers.  I’ve already registered and confirmed.  In my first official email, I received a coupon for a FREE appetizer.  So, next time I sneak over there, I’ll skip the soup, get the FREE appetizer, and enjoy my cheesecake!   I get to have my cake, and eat it too!  *giggle*

Psst!  In case you were wondering, I do draw on the paper tablecloth.  Well, sometimes!  I usually prefer to play a word game.  Like where you think of a word or phrase (such a Macaroni Grill) and see how many words you can make out of it while waiting for your food to arrive.

Blog Recommendation: PennyRaine.com

One of the bloggers I follow, Penny Raine, has her own line of eBooks called Creatively Simple with a variety of  home-maker-friendly titles .  She also sells other eBooks specifically related to cooking.  Late last year, I purchased a package of her Creatively Simple eBooks for a ridiculously low price.  The eBooks are easy-to-follow basic instructional books with helpful pictures.  One of the titles that I particularly liked and plan to use soon is Creatively Simple:  How to Make Homemade Laundry Soap.  I have already purchased several of the items needed to make the soap and am just waiting for my current supply of eco-friendly laundry soap (purchased in bulk from Costco) to run low.  Other tiles from the series that really caught my attention were How to Make Homemade Bread and How to Make Chocolate Cobbler.  I have been making homemade bread for several months now and have a couple of favorite recipes, but I’m looking forward to trying the recipes in Penny’s eBook.  As for the Chocolate Cobbler recipe, I’m pretty much game for trying anything chocolate at least once.  (OK, maybe not chocolate-covered bugs!)

Penny has special subscriber-only sales.  Check out her store and, if you’re interested in ordering from her, be sure to sign up for her newsletter subscription for all of her great specials!
