Why I don't like eating out anymore...

May 15th, 2006 at 04:44 am

I've been slacking off a little as far as domestic duties are concerned. I have completed my trips to the grocery store as scheduled but I haven't cooked any meals for at least a week. This is a no-no considering I have such a tight budget.

The last two restaurants we visited were the Cheesecake Factory and Chevy's. Bottom line: BOTH bills had errors on them. Since hubby was too proud to show me the bill (perhaps because he knows I would've had a coronary) and thus, the errors weren't spotted in time. In Cheesecake factory they charged us for twelve meals and twelve drinks when there were eleven people in our party. Last I checked, we had one mouth per person?? I wonder had a free meal on us? The charge came out to an extra $20.00 on an already high bill. Since it was a large party, they charged us an extra $40 for gratuity despite the waiters garbage service. Hubby complained about the service to the manager but failed to see the price issue. Last night at Chevy's, they charged us for four adult drinks when only two were ordered. The food was horrible as well. The extra charge came out to $4.18.

This sixty dollar food bill could have yielded us a king's feast chez moi. From now on, I'm cooking ahead of time!!!

    I don't like eating out because it is not as good and cheap as we can make it at home. DH made a fabulous shish-ka-bob meal for Mother's Day last night, barbecued shrimp and veges marinated in something. Strawberry shortcake for dessert.

    Of course it's easy for me to say, DH does most of the cooking AND shopping.

    King's Feast Chez Moi...that sounds like a wonderful addition to the home menu...whatever it is Wink

    Don't ever be embarassed about your math skills and powers of observation. If they added wrong, they added wrong. But I'm not afraid to politely point it out. The only problem I have with this is for the computer generated receipt.
