My Mom had purchased T-Bones on sale for $6.99 a pound (to celebrate hubby's b'day last month and was postponed). She had them cut one pound each. With tax that came to $37.55 for 5 steaks. Add in the potato and salad, condiments and such. That brings it to roughly $43.00 or so, maybe a little more. Then add in the grilling, clean-up and all. That is $8.60 each and all of the mess.
We have a little cafe two miles up the road. They have a ONE pound rib-eye and 12 medium size fried shrimp w/ two sides for $10.79 INCLUDING tax. They have an all you can eat salad bar and their baked potatoes are HUGE. We usually order it to go, since they have a smoking section and the boys are allergic to smoke and it's not good for any of us anyhow. They marinate their steaks and grill them to perfection, make their own tartar sauce (it is so good) and they will make your salad plate if you want. I weighed mine a few weeks back (oh yes I did). I got 2.14 POUNDS of salad with my meal!
Maybe next time I will tell my Mom we will order from DB's and save the extra work and get the shrimp to boot!
Have a great day! We will be standing over the grill this afternoon for steaks. Company will be coming and we hope to have some good fellowship! I told hubby that we should leave his Dad and my folks with the boys and the cooked food and skip town. Sounded like a good idea to me! He asked if he could take the steak with him! LOl!!! Men! He he! Too funny!
What do you think? Blessings!!
