Izzy and I were out in the city today. He has the week off from school so we have things to do, places to go..After a day of appointments and fun I realized I had nothing waiting at home for dinner. I knew we weren't far from Dean and Deluca and hoped to pick up something quick and not too expensive. That does seem implausible yet..
I wandered around the store gazing upon overpriced delicacies of all kinds, when I honed in upon the rotisserie chicken..It was only $10.50, which is not that much more then I would pay elsewhere for a similar organic chicken. I bought that along with a bunch of organic broccoli for $4..Would it have been that much less elsewhere? Not necessarily.
I got home; put the chicken in the oven to warm and whipped up some olive oil smashed potatoes and steamed broccoli. Voila, a decent dinner in under 30 minutes. The miracle was that it only cost about $16.00 and we had leftovers.
I had to ponder, why do people go to fast food restaurants for unhealthy food when they can eat things like this instead? How much would dinner for three be at McDonald's?
