Homemade Supper

July 27th, 2011 at 01:33 am

We just finished eating a bit of ago and cleaned up. I was trying to tally the cost of the meal. I have always kind of played at doing this, to see if it was an expensive one or a reasonable one, but ever since the restaurant owner claimed no one could eat at home for less than $10 each, I do it more frequently.

Our supper was pork chops, noodles, bread, sliced tomatoes, corn on the cob, cottage cheese, and saute'd mushrooms. The meat, of course, was the most expensive item, but I believe when I bought it, they were having a sale -- I had taken it out of the freezer.

The noodles were homemade -- I made them with basil. I told my husband that it is unbelieveable how much noodles cost that are considered homemade and I made a big batch for less than a $1. The basil was from our garden. The bread was homemade -- it was less than a $1 for the loaf and we didn't eat a lot of it. The tomatoes are from my husband's garden and the corn was a gift from a friend we had over for supper last week. He brought a dozen ears and we didn't use them all. The mushrooms were leftover from something I had bought it for so I just went ahead and used them. I think I spent about $4.00 each for a very hearty meal.

A decent meal and cost effective as well...can't beat that!

    I don't think that restaurant owner knew what the heck he was talking about. I rarely go over $20 a day for a family of four. Our family dinner is usually under $10 for the whole thing unless I get a roast or ham or something but then we have leftovers for other days which makes those days free.

    That restaurant owner can't do simple math... or he was lying through his teeth. It is far cheaper to eat at home, unless you have tastes that lead to ridiculous expenses. In fact, you can eat really well with some insurance of staying within a decent budget if you have some creativity. I'm so glad that you are proving him wrong!

    I think the restaurant owner is trying to validate his prices and justify people eating out. Thanks for your validation on eating more cheaply at home!
