This place is a "greek diner", so the (half) Greek Chicken is predictably tasty, and it comes with a big Greek Salad to start, seasoned rice with the chicken, and a potato side, either baked, mashed, fries, or hashbrowns (I had the fries), plus rice pudding for dessert. With tax and tip it was just twice what my typical lunch runs (with tax and tip), so it wasn't too guilt-inducing ... plus I wasn't able to finish it all, so have brought home about half the salad, and the chicken breast.
It's been SO damn long since I've had any sort of regular income that I'm "gun shy" about eating out other than my very cheap Chinese outings a couple of times a week. I've had years of "mixed messages" from The Wife ... we're broke, everything's going to be lost, we're needing more income, etc. on one hand, and "oh, you should go out for the networking" on the other. I hate feeling like I'm the hole in the bucket, so tend to eat a lot of dollar store stuff when I'm not going out, which is certainly cheaper than the stuff that she gets for her and Daughter No.2 ... but it's hard to balance that with the possibility of spending a substantial amount were I to take up every "fellowship" opportunity.
Yep, dinner was good, but it still Sucks To Be Me. :-(
