CiCi's Pizza new "Buffet on the Go" AND $25 gift card giveaway!

Posted August 30, 2013


CiCi's Pizza has a new promotion that allows you to get their buffet to go including a drink for only $5! AND we are giving away a $25 gift card so you can pick up dinner for the whole family!

To help your family adjust to the new school schedule and after-school activities, Cici’s Pizza wants to make dinner a tad easier with “Buffet on the Go” for just $5, including drink!

CiCi’s Pizza has a specially designed “Buffet on the Go” box that holds 5 pieces of pizza and 2 breadsticks or cinnamon rolls comfortably. Upon ordering, you are given the box and then you’ll proceed down the buffet line filling the box with all your favorite choices.  Sounds pretty easy and convenient.


To enter the giveaway for a $25 CiCi's Gift Card, just leave a comment below about something you do to reduce meal stress during the hectic work/school week. Do you prepare meals for the week on the weekend,  batch cook and freeze, get take-out, etc?

We'll randomly pick the winner on Wednesday, September 4 at 1:00 pm and post the winning username soon after 1:00.

My thanks to CiCi's for donating the gift card! Good luck!

    I prepare 1 or 2 meals on Sunday and we eat leftovers during the week.

    Planning meals is something I definitely want to get better at doing. I usually just pull out something from the freezer to thaw or in a pinch go out to eat! Love seeing the ideas here though on how to improve the planning!

    Something I do when we find whole chickens on sale. We buy 5-6 chickens. I cook some on top of the stove and the rest in the oven. After they have cooked and cooled, I take all the meat off the bones. I freeze the chicken and the stock. I take it out later for Chicken and dumplings, soups, tacos, chicken salad, casseroles. I use the broth for my soups or dumplings. It takes some time at first, but the meals you can you use it for comes in real handy.

    Usually it's a matter of going out for dinner if we haven't planned far enough in advance. With what seems like constantly changing schedules, sometimes plans go out the window.

    I like to wash and chop up fresh fruits and veggies asap when I purchase them from the supermarket or farmer's market. I then place them in storage containers. This takes away SO much stress for the week because it is then easier to make a sandwhich the night before and just grab a small plastic baggie for the fruit or veggies. Hope this helps!
