for the love of food
This blog is about our family's life and ministry, but I couldn't pass up the chance to share about some free culinary opportunities that are approaching. This Saturday, February 2 Auntie Anne's is celebrating Free Pretzel Day in honor of their 20th birthday. (Does anyone else remember when Auntie Anne's opened and find it impossible to believe that it could have been 20 years ago because you couldn't be old enough to remember anything from that long ago?) You can get a free original or cinnamon sugar pretzel. Cinnamon sugar pretzels aren't raspberry tarts fresh from the patisserie, but they are really yummy. Please go and eat a pretzel in my honor since we're completely unavailable all day. Then on Tuesday, February 12 IHOP is celebrating National Pancake Day with a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes for every customer. I've never eaten at IHOP, but I'm guessing a pancake house must have decent pancakes. They're asking that you consider making a donation to the Children's Miracle Network if you go. Oh, and make sure you tip well. Having been a server at various points in my life, it's important that I mention this detail. The deal runs from 7am to 10pm, so you could go in the evening if you can't drag yourself out of bed early enough to go out for breakfast. (I'm telling myself that, not you. We have great disdain for mornings around here.) Now go forth and eat free food!
