I started blogging about food because, to be honest, I get tired of deciding what and where to eat sometimes. I should probably do some good research into healthy eating, like reading this article on the CDC website about dieting VS your diet. But for today’s lunch I hopped in the SUV and gave a couple of moments of quick thought as to what I’d like to eat. Almost out of decent ideas, I remembered Mount Pleasant’s Ye Ole Fashioned Ice Cream & Sandwich Cafe.
If you are in Mount Pleasant, SC where I do most of my work and you have a hankering for a hot dog and taste is your guiding light, then you should give Seppy’s Hotdogs a visit. As far as hot dogs in Mt Pleasant, Seppy’s was right up there at the top.
Seppy’s menu has 17 hot dogs to tantalize your mouth, 13 of which you just aren’t going to get at your local gas station and one more that you can get at a gas station, but is better at Seppy’s. If you are looking for photos Continue reading “Looking for a Hot Dog?”
With gas prices over $3 per gallon in many places across the US, and considering many Americans rely on gasoline in their monthly budget the Sunoco APlus Reward Card program can help save some money. The card is of course free, and when you make qualifying purchases in the store you save at the pump.
The Smart Way to Save
The trick to saving though, is to only buy the things you would normally buy at Sunoco for the convenience or if they happen to have better prices considering what you save. For example, I grab a drink or two during the day at a local gas station during the work day, and there’s a Sunoco about the same distance away. If their qualifying APlus purchases include things I’ll buy anyway, then I can save some money. But if I simply go to the store and buy products to get a lower price at the pump then you may be losing money instead of saving. Continue reading “Sunoco’s APlus Rewards Card & Your Budget”
Okay, so a Subway Melt isn’t any great money-saver, nor is it the healthiest sandwich that Subway offers and considering calories & carbs its about on-par with a McDonald’s Quarter Pounder with Cheese. However, you won’t get the nutritional value from the McD’s burger, and the Subway Melt is much tastier, larger and hence more filling.
So here was my meal today at Subway with all the fixins etc and its one I’d recommend if you like deli sandwiches in general and it fits your dietary needs:
6″ Parmesan Oregano Bread
Turkey, Ham, Crispy Bacon (double meat)
Provolone Cheese (double cheese)
All of the above, TOASTED
Tomatoes, Green Peppers, Lettuce, light Red Onions, light Banana Peppers
Mayo, light Deli Brown Mustard
Coke Zero (20 oz bottle)
2 Chocolate Chips (best Choc. Chips around!)
It was a very filling lunch and I’m sure (not scientifically) that it was healthier than a lunch at a typical fast-food place like McD’s or Wendys and I was thoroughly full!
I usually write about less expensive meals, quick meals, or other ways to save money or calories. Today I’m going to write about breaking the tedium of your regular lunch routine – if you have a routine you want to break.
I went looking for a new place to eat to break the monotony of my routine. My lunch normal routine is Wendys, Bi-Lo, Piggly Wiggly, McDonalds and Taco Bell. Occasionally I’ll go to Arbys, Moes Southwest Grill or bring lunch from home. The occasional places usually break my normal routine, but the other day I just wanted something new, and ended up at Mozzo Deli in Mount Pleasant, SC.
Mozzos isn’t the place to go if you are looking for budget meal or a fast eats – look to Mozzos for a good lunch meal! I ate at Mozzos two days in a row and had a Chicken Caprese sandwich with deli-style pasta salad and a drink on Monday. Tuesday I went back and got a Roma sandwich with red potatoes, some chips I took back to the office and a drink. Each day was about $14, and the sandwiches (both on ciabatta bread) and sides were great!
