The night after the crock pot foiled my dinner (read: it wasn't my crock pot's fault...it was MY fault! I digress) on my drive home from work the wheels in my head started spinning. What was I gonna do for dinner?!?!
I had the makings for chicken tikka masala...but I did NOT feel like 1) Cleaning my kitchen. 2) Cooking. 3) Cleaning my kitchen post cooking.
I asked little man what he wanted for dinner and he exclaimed he wanted to go to a restaurant.
Fast food sounded gross to me...and a restaurant sounded completely outside of my budget.
Then, a lightbulb went off inside of my head. I had received an email earlier in the day advertising for a $4.95 dinner buffet at one of my favorite local Indian spots....$4.95 is within my budget...and usually this place doesn't charge kids for their buffet...and even if they DID charge me for little man, it was only five bucks so whatev's.
Dinner was unreal.
The bill was 6 dollars.
It was the PERFECT follow up dinner to my foiled spaghetti sauce.
Boom. Boom. POW!
