Movies and Free Food

How is everyone’s weekend going so far?

We made it a Redbox night yesterday, and rented Big Hero 6 for the evening. I didn’t know anything about the plot except there was a kid and a big, squishy robot, but I thought it was so fun! I couldn’t stop laughing at this:

Anyway, would watch again. Recommended if you’re looking for easy viewing.

As for today, I had a lunch date with myself at Corner Bakery. A few days ago, I received an invite to try out one of their new grilled flat sandwiches for free (Pro life tip: sign up for fast casual restaurants’ mailing lists for all the free food! – This particular offer may still be available if you click the link). I chose the Southwest Chicken option.

Yummy! Check out all those jalapenos – Nice and spicy, just how I like it. I was worried that these sandwiches would be dinky, but this was actually a pretty decent size and stuffed with grilled chicken, cabbage, corn, pico de gallo, and spicy peppers. The flatbread was warm and doughy, too. I still would have preferred it to be bigger, but it was flavorful and satisfying nonetheless.

I also would have preferred being able to select bread or chips as my side like you usually can at Corner Bakery, but this offer only allowed the baby carrots option. Oh well, I made do.

On par for the rest of the day: taxes, cleaning, making more lettuce wraps for dinner, and possibly watching Birdman!

Any other tips for getting complimentary meals? I’m a grown adult, but I still hunt down free food like a college student. No shame!

  1. I was visiting a cruise ship today, and someone in the elevator was holding a Big Hero 6 plush. At the time, I couldn’t recall the movie… Anyhow, on a separate note, I’m pretty sure I got the same Corner Bakery coupon, then realized the sandwich wasn’t offered where I live. 😦 Glad at least one of us took advantage of it. Btw, if you sign up for the Starbucks list, you get a free item every year on your birthday! Au Bon Pain might have freebies too?

    • Ooh, I’ll definitely have to check out Au Bon Pain! Thanks for the tip 🙂 Hope you enjoyed your cruise ship tour and that it was better than “okay-fine,” haha!
