Easy And Frugal Copycat Restaurant Recipes - Being Ecomomical

We all love treating ourselves to a really delicious meal outside of the house. Whether it's date night, a tradition to signify the end of the week, or just wanting to enjoy dining out and being served - enjoying a nice meal with exceptional service is definitely a great luxury!

However, frequenting restaurants can quickly add up. From the high costs of drinks, appetizers and entrees, you can easily come out of pocket upwards hundreds of dollars (or close to) for ONE meal. Let's not forget the tip. Most servers expect an average of fifteen to twenty percent for a tip, adding on extra money spent before you leave the restaurant.

IT ALL ADDS UP

Just think about it for a second. To truly enjoy what a restaurant has to offer, you'll want to try an appetizer, an entree, maybe an alcoholic beverage (which is extremely overpriced, compared to making your own) and if you have room, dessert.

Let's not mention adding in the expenses of the children's food and any other guests, if applicable. It's a nice gesture, but let's face it - dining out may not be the BEST thing to do for our overall budget.
