If only I knew then what I know now (dining tip)
Short version: I'm taking a real estate class at a local college so that when I sell my house later this year, I won't have to give a % of it to some realtor (who's about useless in my area since my county has an online for sale directory that everybody uses to search for houses). Turns out the schools culinary academy is on the next floor from my classroom.
Anyhow, class lets out last night and I decide to go up there and see what they're doing out of curiosity...turns out they serve the public like an actual restaurant. Last night's dinner was a cherry glazed rack of lamb, a seafood risotto, grilled hearts of palm and creme brulee...total cost?
So I'm out that way this afternoon for something else, decide to see what they do for lunch...Penne with meat sauce, antipasto, salad, and cherry trifle. For two dollars and seventy five cents.
Ugh, if only I knew then what I know now :P
