My cooking it's not improved (it's more than 40 years I cook) but restaurants are worst, at least in Europe.
There is crisis, people doesn't have money and restaurant cannot risk buying a lot of fresh ingredients.
I only go out for Italian pizza.

A breakfast place that opens at 8:00? Wow that's late. They must be missing half their business. People have to go to work.

Yeah, there's a couple popular restaurants in town and they both start out serving breakfast at 8:00. I could never understand that.

Maybe no one gets up early in your town.

I thought that was late also. You can even get breakfast in these here parts at McD, BK and other fast foods as early as six a.m. They catch the workers that start at seven a.m. I remember when my youngest worked at BK, he had to be in work at 5:30 a.m. to set up for the breakfast crowd.

Wow, I think most of them around us open by 6:00AM. If one opened at 5:00 we'd practically be able to go there before we went to bed.

Yeah, we're big-time night owls...

When I first started cooking I was 19 years old. And then I had a fear of trying things so instead of trying we ate out mostly. But now that I'm 25 and I can cook just about anything, I'm more willing to cook every day of the week. Although DH likes eating out so we eat out on the weekends for what he calls "Days Off" for me. But we don't spend to terribly much on weekends on dining out. We have a budge where we spend $90 on Groceries a week and $50 for eating out/entertainment. And once that's gone we don't have anymore.
