Looking for a Hot Dog?

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?”

Lunch with the Subway Melt

Click to Enlarge

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)
  • Crunchy Cheetos
  • 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!

Another Quick, Cheap Lunch Idea

Running late today I had to run to the grocery store and had my heart set on Taco Bell (I work near a Taco Bell) so I grabbed an Arizona Green Tea w/ Ginseng & Honey (0.99 plus tax) and I treated myself to three items off of their “Why Pay More” menu

IDEA: Taco Bell + Arizona Tea

Five Layer Burrito
Crunchy Taco
Mini Quesadilla

My total was about $4.25 including tax… and that’s a special treat sure to fill me up for less than a fast food value meal and probably better nutritional value as well.

More Quick Lunch Ideas: Packed from Home plus a burrito!

Recently while trying to make more time in my life I decided to find time to get things done during lunch. I also decided to try and mix savings in.

Another quick lunch idea for my busy day, not only quick but inexpensive.

IDEA: About $2.60 + Home Packed

Today’s lunch a Taco Bell 5-Layer Beefy Burrito $1.08 with tax), a 20-oz soft drink from a local gas station  ($1.51 with tax) and some broccoli and cheesy rice with corn (cost ??).

Also, we saved money on the back-end, sort of. We’ve kept the plastic containers from Chinese food take out, they are microwaveable and have lids. So we have collected these instead of going out and buying plastic containers to store stuff in the fridge.  So that’s a burrito, a bottled soft-drink and a plactic container full of corn and rice – plenty to eat for about $2.60!

More Quick Lunch: Taco Bell (again)

Recently while trying to make more time in my life I decided to find time to get things done during lunch. I also decided to try and mix savings in.

Another quick lunch idea for my busy day, really on the upper end of inexpensive lunches.

IDEA: About $5.50 – Taco Bell $5

I grabbed one of these today, the Cheesy Gordita $5 Box (aka Cheesy Gordita Crunch Box): and it was great, and just a little less expensive than their regular meals. Comes with  a Cheesy Gordita Crunch, a Burrito Supreme®, soft or crunchy Taco, Cinnamon Twists and a medium drink.
