Good Day Everyone! This should be a good week for my $15/day menu challenge (for details see my first blog entry "A Real Galley Kitchen")- we are off the boat and are apartment/dog sitting for some friends. So this is our view for the week! I admit I'm a sucker for a good rainbow/sunset photo...
They left a fridge full of random food that we are trying to use up. So far this week we have had leftover chili from Saturday night, turkey/bacon wraps, egg salad sandwiches, and some friends took us out for dinner last night. I have spent $8.97 for eggs and fresh pasta on sale so far this week.
Tonight we are having spinach salad...which always reminds me of a restaurant dinner we had some time ago..My parents and their friends were visiting- normally this restaurant isn't in our price range. The menu offered a table side spinach salad preparation for $20 per person. The chef wheeled out a cooktop and made the whole salad at the table complete with warm bacon dressing. When we got the bill it read: Spinach Salad $80. Well, of course four of us had ordered it, but whenever T or I are asked for a recommendation for this particular restaurant, we always begin with "Well, they have this great $80 spinach salad..."
Anyway, I spent $12.20 for my salad tonight, and $12.99 for a bottle of bubbly, so $25.19. I may even make a warm bacon dressing.
Have a great day everyone!
