    Great ideas, especially about fast food being not just unhealthy but more expensive than meals you can prepare at home. Even if you love cheese burgers, a packet of 12 cheese singles is about $1.50, or approx. 12c/slice. One pound of ground meat is about $3-4 or $1 per 1/4-lb patty. Bag of six hamburger buns is $1.50 or 30c / bun. So you’re paying about $1.50 for a quarter-pounder cheese burger, and that’s with good quality ground beef or turkey; not the processed fatty stuff the fast food places serve you.

    Jar of spaghetti sauce = $1. One lb of ground turkey =$3-$4. One lb of spaghetti noodles = $1. So the price of a home-cooked spaghetti meal for four = $6, or $1.50 per person. And it’s just as good as plate of spaghetti you will get in any restaurant. Yes, I said ANY restaurant. 5-star? Doesn’t matter. Oh? You want a 5-star plate of spaghetti? Then add some freshly chopped tomato, sliced mushrooms, and a crushed clove of garlic to your sauce. Bam! 5-star spaghetti for less than $2.50 a plate.

    Why are you eating at a restaurant when you can have better meals at home for a fraction of the price? You’re single and trying to impress a girl? So why are you taking her to a restaurant??? You’ll impress her a lot more with a home-cooked meal and a $20 Cabernet.

    I know when I was starting out over a decade ago I had to get books, magazines to learn new techniques and often they did not give me the results I was looking for. Now with the internet more info is available. Thanks!
