eating at home

After finding Mint yesterday, I was freshly reminded of how expensive it is to eat out.

For example, the least expensive meal I know of when I go out for lunch that isn’t fast food (though Chik-Fil-A is darned tasty) is about $8 including a soda; $6 with water.

However, a bowl of soup and crackers with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich costs about 3 minutes and $2.50 at home.

Going out for steak will run me $15-35. Buying a cut of filet and cooking it in my broiler takes about 15 minutes and costs $7-12.

So, for now, I’m looking to eat at least two meals a day at home and save some buckage 🙂
