My life is all about saving money these days, so I haven’t been eating out as much. There’s a little game I play in my head called “how much would this be?” where I put a market value on a homemade meal to make myself feel proud of the $ I’m hopefully saving.
Today’s lunch: cheese sandwich with grapes, and potato chips. Let’s see… “How much would this be” at some charming little cafe? The menu would read “Vegetarian Snack Size Combo: Half sandwich of provolone cheese, clover sprouts, vine-ripened tomatoes on whole wheat bread, served with fruit and chips.” Maybe around $4.00? Pretty boring sandwich – next time I should spruce it up with some avocado or hummus.
