I spent almost our whole grocery budget on one dinner!

For dh and I :) we went on vacation, just the two of us. Normally I'm frugal but on vacation not. We spent like $80 on this dinner. Thanks to all those extra fees but it was so good!

*My weekly food budget is $100 to $120

That doesn't look worth $80.

There's not much to it

It was $60 plus 19 percent service charge plus a 2.50 fee plus tax.

On top of the $80 we also tipped 10 bucks because only part of the 19 percent was for the person who brought it.

I did. It was juicy. We don't have steak or any red meat too often so it was a total treat!

Service charge for what? Room service?

A 19% service charge? Woah, I'd not have tipped.
