Last week I told you about our Longo’s Meets CheapEats adventure, a day when we ate every single meal in Longo’s Maple Leaf Square store. Well you didn’t think we’d leave out their $6.99 Daily Dinner Deals did you?
Of course not!
So we spent a week eating Longo’s Dinner Nights Done Right for dinner every day. Some were fantastic, some were [...]
As Longo’s Ambassador and Chief CheapEater, I figured it was my duty to try out their prepared foods, especially since their current marketing is promoting Take it – Make it – Learn it (ready-to-eat, ready-to-cook, and how to cook). So I recruited my partner-in-CheapEats Gerry and we spent a day at Longo’s eating every meal ̵ [...]
Now, what to make? What to make?

What’s For Dinner?
I know, I know, you’re all chomping at the bit to know how our Thanksgiving went.
My excuse is that we had a busy weekend with Mom, Andy, CIUT‘s The First Word, and 14 guests for dinner. Add to that the fact I jumped on a bus and headed to Ottawa before all the dishes were even done, thanks honey!, and well, I was just too lazy t [...]

Note: I’ve left the links to BBC in so you can figure out what it is if you don’t know.

Today was a surprising day. I expected it to be fairly slow and easy since I was packing up… but it was event filled.
First, The News EMC published an article on CheapEats Ottawa and our call for recommendations. Tom Collins, yes that’s his name, wrote a great article and we’re already seeing recommendations flowing in.
So, I guess I don’t have to be in Toronto to get stuck never leaving home. I worked. Then around 8pm when Vith was driving to the sportsplex, she dropped me off at the Leob strip mall where I got lip gunk – SoftLips, the only stuff that works; cream cheese for my bagels; cash for the next 4 days and take out dinner at Wan’s.

It was spring day today! Sunny, warm and birds on every branch. I caught up on email and then headed over to Barrhaven Centre to grab lunch and pick up some essentials.
Got off the bus too late to check Vith’s new restaurant recommendation… a Pho place in Barrhaven, a must try while I’m out there… so instead… and [...]
