Last night I met a new friend for dinner at Wolfgang Puck Express. We used a 2-for-1 Citipass Book coupon, of course!
The signature Chinois chicken salad tasted bitter in the way that bagged salad can, but I loved its spicy mustard dressing. In fact, I'm munching on the leftovers as I type.
"I bet I can make this even better at home," I wondered on the way to the post office. And so we stopped by the international grocery for fresh bok choy and almonds, to replace the high carb wonton strips.
I popped in the Goodwill next door, only to spot a new Chico's top marked $2. Had I not just wandered through Chico's before last night's dinner, admiring the rich colors and richer prices?
So now, for less than the cost of one meal, I have the makings of a family-size salad AND another piece to mix with my secondhand Chico's outfit. I just love it when the frugal alternative presents itself so easily!
