Expensive dinner out!

January 17th, 2010 at 09:10 am

We have a resort about 15 miles away from the house. It is a golfing resort and has a fancy restaurant.
I know that I have mentioned that my husband and I eat out a lot, but our dinner bill is usually under $20 for both of us. (Italian food) We are allowed to brown bag it, so no cost to us for drinks.

Last night we met the man we are building a house for at this resort. He suggested we get steaks for dinner. The cheapest steak dinner was $32.95. I have never paid that much for a meal in my life!
Instead I got a chicken/pasta dinner that was quite good and cost $22.95. The customer ordered a surf and turf meal that was $42.95; dh got a chicken dinner that was the same cost as mine.
I tried to pay the bill, but the customer insisted that he pay. He had eaten there the night before, so he knew the prices.
I think next time I will suggest we eat at our local place in town.
However, i am having some great leftovers for lunch today! Yum!!

    Oh, how i love eating out. These days, "eating out" means Subway or Arby's though.

    You got me thinking about what the most expensive meal out has been for me. I think I would have to go with a $AU36.00 handmade pumpkin & almond ravioli pasta dish. I think DF has paid $40 for a steak a few times at various bucks parties(and that's JUST the steak - the veges and salad were extra!)

    So nice to get a "treat" every once in a while! Smile Sounds yummy! (Not many restaurants or fast food places are worth the money they charge!!)
