Restaurants? Who needs restaurants?

I'm a devoted foodie. I love going out to eat. I love fresh ingredients. I love trying new recipes. I just love food.

But our one-income status will soon put a serious damper on my foodie fun. No more super fancy artisan cheeses. No more restaurant meals. It will be a big change for me and my stomach.

So I'm super committed to giving myself the foodie experience at home and on a budget. In preparation, I made an incredible meal for Ben and I yesterday evening... lemon and caper grilled salmon, ricotta gnocchi with brown butter sauce, and roasted broccoli with lemon and basil. Delish!

The salmon ($9/pound at our local supermarket) made it a little pricey. But all in all, I made the entire thing for $10.80/person. Not too shabby.
