$100 per person you consider a "normal" meal? Three times a week?
Sure, we do that once in a while, but not a couple of times a week just
beause we don't feel like cooking.
We have four good restaurants in town and can get away with $40 to $70
for the two of us for a damned good meal of high quality, not Applebees
And you can do if you know where to look. We go to Claudaugh's Pub
on Monday for their two for one fish and chips and get out for around
$30 with drinks. Tonight we are contemplating going to one of the local
pizza places for their buy one pizza get another for $2.22 AND $2.00
drafts with the next one being 2 cents. We can get way too full and way
to drunk for less than $20.00 (grin).
America is at that awkward stage. It's too late
to work within the system, but too early to shoot
That's not our fault, in this city everything costs more. Explosive
growth and booming economy is the reason. We used to have live-in house
keeper who cooked as well for us. When kids grow up and went their own
no more of that. Just cleaning lady coming every two weeks.
Right now wife is away back home, Seoul Korea to stay with her aging god
mother for couple of weeks(maaybe last time together). I am pigging out
almost every day now which is not much fun alone.
Utter nonsense. You can easily spend that, if you're nuts, but it's
not necessary to get good food. Actually, without alcohol,that's
pretty tough to do. I think the most I've paid was at Ruths Chris and
that was $150 for the two of us. My wife had a glass of wine, too.
Surprising number of places, locally, where you can get a good,
healthy, sit-down meal for no more than $2 more than a typical fast
food meal. A "fast food" meal is NOT a money saver.(unless you are
buying off the "bargain menu" "valu meal" etc - in which case what you
are getting is usually significantly less than what you would get at
the sit-down restaurant too.
Sub $20, including drink (no alcohol) but excluding tax is quite easy
here (total w/tax about $21-$24). I can choose Italian, Greek,
Mexican, Lebanese, or American for between $15 and $20 for any of the
three meals. Of course, they have more expensive dishes and there are
more expensive restaurants. $50 for two is easy, as well. No need
for it, though. Good food can be had for cheap money.
Around here, I can't get full on fast food for less than $10-12 just for
myself. But there's several all you can eat lunch buffets - off the top
of my head, Italian, Chinese, and Indian nearby - where you can get out
the door for about the same price. I honestly hardly ever make myself
lunch because I doubt I could do it for significantly less money. Used
to be a Japanese place too but they raised their prices so I don't go
there anymore (which is sad because I love Japanese food.)
I would say that the food is better for you as well, but I do have to
admit a weakness for cheese and fat (especially when it's stuffed shells
day at the Italian place.)
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.

I'm remembering some thing "from another list".
The old woman is at the store, during extended power ct. She is buying
microwave popcorn. Other shopper, much younger. "Lucky you, have
electricity..." No, the old woman says. Power still out. We're going to
take scissors, cut the bags open. Scrape out the oil and pop corn. Cook
it up in covered pot on the range top. Which we'll light with a match.
The younger woman got excited, and ran to tell her shopping companion,
now they can have popcorn.
Some people don't have the recipe to boil water.

I'm sure not. She is a great cook and baker and candy-maker. ;-) She
got my mother's recipe book and is in the process of putting it
together for publication (for the rest of the extended family).
OTOH, I have trouble getting the frozen pizza into the microwave. I
was hurtin' a year ago when we were living apart during the week. I
hate going to a restaurant alone, too.
