Fritz: I'm a little worried about money...
Angela: Yes, I think we are spending too much, especially on food.
F: Yes, for a while now we've had a bottle of wine at dinner every night and recently we've started to have wine with lunch too. That adds up, you know?
A: True, we should eat cheaper for a while.
F: And no more wine for lunch, OK?
A: Yes, and tonight let's be really good and not spend too much money on dinner.
Food bill for that same night:
- Garlic bread to start up
- Chicken livers on ciabatta bread sprinkled with rocket (that's arugula for the rest of us)
- Prawns with rice and salad
- Fancy chicken sandwich
- Bottle of white wine
- Another round of prawns with rice and salad
- Another bottle of white wine
Conclusion: to hell with it!
I guess we may come home earlier than planned if we keep it this way...
