Default Why Lacy Was HAPPY to HELP Me Reduce My Bill By 75%

Thanks Dien,

"Why Lacy Was HAPPY to HELP Me Reduce My Restaurant Bill By 75%"

I Get Hungry.

REALLY hungry after splitting wood and stacking it on the porch.

The last few times I went out to eat at a Restaurant I finished
a Crab Cake dinner - 16.99 AND ALMOST ordered a 2nd dinner.

Didn't do it. But came close.

34 Bucks for Lunch is RIDICULOUS!

I LIKE dining out but restaurants don't serve enough food to keep me

What to do?

I read an Article in "Bloomberg Magazine" about how the Freeze Dried
Food business was MUSH-ROOMING outside the Emergency Preparedness/
End-of-the-World Market. Selling to regular families and home owners.

We Googled the two Top Companies.

Filled out the F-r-e-e Sample form I Found. (

Then TOOK The Meal Pouch With me to a Restaurant.

I handed -Lacy my Waitress- a LOTTO ticket. And asked, "Could you help
me TRY OUT this new Freeze Dried Food? The Directions say I need a Cup

Lacy brought me a cup of hot water.

I Smiled at Lacy. Handed her a 2nd LOTTO ticket. And said, "The Directions
Don't tell you how to get the Pouch open. Can you use this knife to Cut
it open while I Hold it?"

Lacy sliced my Meal Pouch open.

Another LOTTO ticket. "Could you Please Tell me when 15 Minutes is up?
The Hot Water has to Work on the Frozen food. I don't have a watch."

Lacy is looking GOBSMACKED. She has 3 Lotto tickets and So far
I've not Bought Anything!

The Top of my table is a mess. Empty Coffee Cup, my water glass,
The Freeze Dried Food Catalog. The cut off top of the Pouch. The padded

I tell Lacy, "This is pretty good. Can we Skip to Dessert? I'll Try this
Lemon Ice-cream stuff. 4.99

I waved at the Bus Boy clearing Tables. Say, "EXCUSE ME - I'd like to Give
You a Tip. Which do you Want? A LOTTO ticket or a 1.00 Bill?"

I waved both at him.

Bill Grinned and snatched the LOTTO ticket. Then Asked, "Can I clear off
your Table Sir?"

UNBELIEVABLE. Only 5 Bites of Lemon IceCream Gelato stuff.

1.00 a bite.

My Diabolical Plan?

Taste Test A few dozen Freeze Dried Meals.

Then order a 5 Gallon Bucket full of what I like - which is supposed to last
25 years. Except I am going to EAT IT NOW.

IN FUTURE - I PLAN to Take Extra Food WITH me when I dine out.

FOR EXAMPLE - When I spend 165.99 to get 160 servings of Freeze Dried
Veggies I pay only a bit over a 1.00 per serving. So I can Take 2 or 3 Servings
WITH me.

LOTS cheaper than buying a 2nd meal for 15 bucks!
