[The following post was commissioned by Olive Garden, via Resourceful Mommy Media.]
Being a complete carboholic, it’s no surprise that Olive Garden is one of my favorite restaurants. I have actually had dreams about their breadsticks. And since my son Jake is basically a mini-me, it’s his favorite as well. In fact, we’ve spent almost all of his eleven birthday dinners at “The OG” as we call it.
From the breadsticks to the delicious salad dressing to the big selection of entrées and the scrumptious desserts, I just love everything about it. It’s also a great place for my family to go, since only half of us eat meat – we all have lots of choices!
Since I can never get enough Olive Garden pasta, I’m really excited to tell you about their new promotion, called “Dinner Today & Dinner Tomorrow.” It’s really simple: you choose from one of five great entrées, and get unlimited soup or salad and breadsticks, like usual. But then, you get to choose another entrée from the list, to take home, and eat the next day!
The included entrees are a great mix of meatless and meat options:
- Mezzaluna Ravioli with Five Cheese Marinara (new!)
- Spaghetti with Four Cheese Meat Sauce (new!)
- Lasagna Rollatini with Meat Sauce (new!)
- Five Cheese Ziti al Forno
- Fettuccini Alfredo
So you could get the same thing to go that you had for dinner, or choose something different to enjoy the next day. And you get all of this for only $12.95! (It may be more in NYC, but we’re used to that. Also, Alaska and Canada.) This is an incredible value, especially since I try to bring home half of my entrée anyway (trying to lose weight here!). So this could actually be several meals for me.
You’ve got a chance to win one of five $50 Olive Garden gift certificates! Tomorrow (Wednesday, October 10th) from 8-9 pm, join me for a twitter party, where we’ll be talking about Olive Garden, this amazing deal, and our love of pasta. :-) You can get more information for the #Dinner2Day twitter party here. Make sure you’re following me (@SelfishMom), hostess with the mostest @ResourcefulMom, sponsor @OliveGarden, and my fellow panelists @somedayilllearn,@formulamom, @1momof5 and @OWkids.
Hope to see you there, and good luck!
The “Dinner Today & Dinner Tomorrow” promotion runs through November 18th.
