After all that work, we seek the easy diversion. Why mess up that clean kitchen when lunch is extremely easy on the wallet around here?
Mexican's one of our favorites!
When we move, we're going to miss our local neighborhood Mexican joint -- Casa Blanca. That's my favorite above -- the ground beef tostada with charro beans.
Tuesday is $1.50 fish taco day at Rubio's. Now that's a cheap lunch!
Mandarin Chef's another close favorite. We often split a carryout order in the evening, but they also have a great lunch special with egg drop soup, egg roll, and your choice of entree.
The one thing I find disturbing there is the placemat! I'm a Snake! I'll let you guess my birth year.
Craig ordered egg foo yung with chicken and let me have a large bite. Very tasty!
And here's my Kung Pao chicken. Spicy!
Yesterday after a trip to IKEA to pick up an extra pillow and some placemats, we stopped off at our go to Italian joint in Tempe -- Rigatoni's! That place is packed at lunch, but we managed to beat the crowd. The lunch special starts with their signature salad and bread.
And comes with the pasta dish of your choice. We both ordered the Baked Rigatoni with Italian Sausage. OMG!
Hmmmmm. It's Thursday. It's 8:41 a.m. What's for lunch?
