These days, (which aren’t so far removed from school!) we don’t go out to eat very often at all. What happened? Well, we went on a cruise for our honeymoon in May. If you’ve ever been on one, you already know the food is amazing. You’re eating the best food you’ve ever had in your life–for seven days straight. Wow.
Once we disembarked, we had to wait a day for our flight. So, we went to what we thought was a decent-looking restaurant. It probably was. But, compared to our cruise cuisine, it was a huge disappointment. The flavor was just OK, presentation dismal, and ultimately unsatisfying.
I guess you could say the cruise spoiled us and turned us into food snobs. That’s not necessarily a bad thing–now we hardly ever eat out.
When you go out to eat, is it ever the best food you’ve ever had? Do you walk away completely satisfied, glad you spent $10-20 on a meal? If that’s you, then I’m happy for you. But for me, I’ll stick to eating at home for a fraction of the price I’d pay for it at a restaurant.
After all, it leaves us money to save for our next cruise!

***Photo 2: The best halibut I’ll ever have. The tenderly seasoned fish melted in my mouth. It was topped off with a crunchy layer of goodness and drizzled with some sort of sauce. Served with steamed asparagus (which, before this, I thought I didn’t like) and peppers. And that was just the entree! That dinner also came with an appetizer, salad/soup and of course, a dessert.
