For the Food on Fridays carnival, any post remotely related to food is welcome—though we love to try new dishes, your post doesn’t have to be a recipe. We’re pretty relaxed over here, and stories and photos are as welcome as menus and recipes.When your Food on Fridays contribution is ready, just grab the broccoli button (sorry for the delay on the promised button battle…more later on that) to paste at the top of your post. It ties us together visually.Then fill in the boxes of this linky tool to join the fun!
Food on Fridays with Ann
Two of my three teenage daughters are starting to drink coffee. The Belgian Wonder and I drink what we make at home, so the girls are on their own if they want to try a fancy coffee shop drink. I’m not shelling out $2 or $3 for that stuff.Always on the lookout for a deal, our eldest spotted a flyer that came in the mail with coupons for Dunkin’ Donuts. She clipped them, stuffed them in her wallet, and took note of the expiration date: August 31, 2011.August 31 was Wednesday, and that evening, after a soccer match, she gasped. “The coupons! Can I try to get the free coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts? It’s just around the corner and this is the last day!””Well, I guess,” I said, “but it might be closed this late in the day. It’s a doughnut place, after all. That’s kind of a morning thing.””I’m gonna try!”They were open.With the coupons, my daughter got a free iced tea and a free coffee, as well as a free doughnut with the purchase of a $1 latte.
