$10 a day challenge: 5 of 31
Still eating on the cheap!
I’ve received several emails from people telling me I’m going about this all wrong. I just wanted to remind everyone that there are many ways to eat economically depending on your situation, and how much free time you have. Hopefully one day my organizational and time-management skills will improve, but until then…
A piece of fruit, a 500 calorie high-fiber lunch, and a charity hamburger allowed me to eat like a King yesterday.
What is the tab up to now? Find out after the jump.
I won’t bore you with too many details today.

A friend invited me out for a burger at Hudson Tavern. I politely declined, citing my $10/day challenge. Guess what? They said they’d pay! Well, of course I’ll pay you February for a hamburger today!
Delicious burger, A+ chicken wings, and a lavish banana-bread pudding. Good job, Hudson Tavern (see review next week!)
