My name is Melissa, and I love going out to eat.  I love trying new food and not having to cook the food, but even more I enjoy not having to do the dishes afterward.  However, as our family has grown over the years (we are now a family of 5), dining out has become more expensive for us. 

We started the Dining Out Challenge because we still want to dine out, but we don’t want to spend a great deal of money on it.  Join us each week as we document our dining out experiences.  Come back several times a week to find the latest restuarant deals that are helping us meet the goals of our challenge and spend less than $25 a week.
