A Sign of the Times

Twice a year, usually February and August or September New York City celebrates restaurant week. During this week you can get a three course prix-fixe dinner at the top restaurants for $35.00. My friend Jane and I usually try to get into the city for dinner.

Unfortunately, because she's away on vacation, we couldn't make it in February. Today I got an email stating that restaurant week is continuing through March 20. It looks like restaurant week is becoming restaurant month. Maybe she'll be back from vacation and we can make it for our annual dinner.

I guess people have been cutting back so much that even the $35.00 for a wonderful meal is too much money.

The recession seems to have hit the fine dining establishments of Manhattan.

I rarely eat at restaurants, although I do miss my wine dinners in Florida that I went to 4-6 times a year.

I have a freezer, paid for by selling my pecans! In other words, it was free! I stock up whenever the 2 major grocery stores here have a Buy-one Get-one Free Sale on meats, breads, veggies, etc. Whatever I can freeze as well as some canned goods, although I don't use many of those.

You have to save where you can!
