Frugal Friday ~ Eating Out for Less

My husband, Tim came home one day last week after being gone all morning with classes. I asked him if he wanted lunch and he said he had already eaten. I later found out he had eaten in our local university's cafeteria.

Most larger universities allow non-students or students without meal plans to eat at very reasonable prices. They also have a wide variety of foods and are all-you-can-eat. Tim went into the cafeteria, after paying $6.14, filled his tray and sat down at an empty table to eat and study. I never did find out how many times he refilled his tray, but I'm sure he got his money's worth :). He said the next time we go out for lunch, we should definitely go there.

Here's a sample menu from our local university. This is just the list of special items for this particular day. There is also a lengthy list of items available everyday. Yes, this is all in one place at one time. I'm getting hungry just reading it.
