    Default Breakfast gloat...

    Yesterday we were out early doing some errands and we stopped at a local Mexican restaurant for breakfast.

    I had scrambled eggs and chorizo, Becca had her eggs with bacon. Sides were refried beans and potatoes. Flour tortillas, a basket of chips and plenty of fresh, warm salsa.

    $2.75 per plate. With the tax, breakfast cost $5.95 I left a $2 tip.

    Very good food. This is a local place, located in what appears to be an old Pizza Hut building. At 9:30 AM, the place was packed.

    During the week they have lunch specials for $4.99. This is one of our favorite places.

    Samesame.

    When I was living in Perris, I used to do the 20min drive over to
    Elsinore to the old part of town. There was a Mexican'restaurant' there
    that when you walked in was completely bare except for a stove with two
    ginormous pots on, and a counter. Run by Mum and Dad, with a couple of
    the kids helping out.

    One dish on the menu...... burrito. Either beef, or chicken. No refried
    beans, no 'salsa' no gucamole etc, etc....... I used to have just
    chicken meat out of the pot, in a huge assed tortilla, with a small tub
    of chilli to garnish.

    Used to grab one to have there and then, sitting on the planter pots
    outside on the sidewalk, and take another one 'home' to have later.

    Damn!! I can still taste those things!!

    Similar story - had a Birthday lunch at a local Mexican Chain "El Tarasco"
    We had 7 adults 1 pre-teen 2 toddlers & an infant There for about 2 hours
    after a Basketball tournament. Total bill. $107.00 + a $20.00 tip.

    A favorite LA South Bay joint a student favorite of LMU.

    Thank goodness most of their business is take-out or they would have charged
    (justifiably) table rent.

    Where are you located?

    My wife likes to watch some of those "are they going to buy house #1,
    #2, or #3?" shows, and when I see house prices in other parts of the
    country, I am reminded of the fact that everything is more expensive
    here (which is northern NJ, just outside of NYC). Houses prices here
    are double or triple what we sometimes see on that television show.

    Maybe breakfast is, too.

    You can get some great deals in the midwest. I have a friend looking for
    more.

    We live in Cleveland, TX... about 40 miles NE of Houston. Small town, population around 15,000. Cost of living is very low here. Cost of eating out is pretty cheap as long as you stick with local places and avoid the chain restaurants. A really good buffet here is $6.99 pp. A 3 bedroom, 2 bath home on 1/4 acre typically sells for under $100K. The same house in my old neighborhood outside of Philadelphia would sell for at least twice that.

    And that same house here would sell for 2-3 times as much as it would in
    your old neighborhood outside of Philly. A guesstimate for a 3 bdr, 2
    bath house on less than a 1/4 - the lots are small in our town - would
    be $500k.

    How is that some places have to call in Ramsay (pecker) or Robert (Food
    Channel), while these Mexican families just get it right wihtout some
    loud Brit invading there lives? The little mom & pop by me is clean,
    inexpensive and the food is always great.

    Greek places in the city where I once lived were like that, too.

    Of course. When they say "location, location, location" that's part of
    the deal.

Cost of eating out is pretty cheap as long as you stick with local places and avoid the chain restaurants. A really good buffet here is $6.99 pp. A 3 bedroom, 2 bath home on 1/4 acre typically sells for under $100K. The same house in myold neighborhood outside of Philadelphia would sell for at least twice that.

    Used to work fine until I switched to Mozilla. Never mind. It's
    probably not much of an irritant to most.
    Funny thing is, when I'm composing, it does its 72 and "looks" like it
    will behave. When you open up the message, though, it's strung all
    across the page.?
    Oh well.
