Free Breakfast At Denny’s and Leftover Pancakes

Did you catch the Superbowl last night? As my husband always says, you really only have to watch the last few minutes of the game to get all of the excitement. If you did only watch the last few minutes, you might have missed a commercial for Denny’s. They are offering a great deal.

Tomorrow if you get to Denny’s restaurant anytime from 6 am until 2 pm, they will give you a free Grand Slam breakfast. That is a great deal for the whole family if you can make it in. Imagine a huge breakfast out for free! Danny’s also offers free dinner meals for kids on Tuesday nights. Make sure to check with your local Denny’s before you head out to make sure they are participating in the promotion.

Don’t worry if you can’t eat all of it at one sitting. You can take it home with you for leftovers. That reminds me of how great pancakes are for saving money. You can easily make up a batch of pancakes from scratch for less than the cost of box mixes, let alone cereal or other ready-made breakfast food. Pancakes can be frozen and then reheated individually in a microwave or toaster oven.

I confess that I have even used pancakes in an emergency to substitute for bread. My son loved taking a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on pancakes for lunch, and I didn’t have to run out to the store at the last minute or have him spend money on a school lunch.

Alton Brown, one of my favorite personalities from the Food Network has a very easy instant pancake mix recipe. You can find it here.

If you don’t want to bother with the buttermilk or even mixing up flour, try this simple recipe from Betty Crocker that uses Bisquick. It will cost a little more than pancakes made completely from scratch, but it will still save you money. Go here for the recipe.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
