Awfully Pricey

I'm with Professor Reynolds on this one. I see nothing wrong with trying to save money on food in an economic downturn—but that should likely include not trying to give meals "a little twist."

Beet Salad with Crushed Pistachios & Soft Goat Cheese? Does this sound like a cost-effective vegetable option? Lamb Ragu with Rigatoni and Fresh Ricotta? Why fresh ricotta? Visit the refrigerator aisle in any grocery store and get the other option for a lot cheaper.

And my favorite is the last item. Greek Yogurt with Blood Oranges, Honey & Mint.

When did this country forget how to scrimp and save when necessary?

Now, they don't say how many people they're feeding on this $35 budget. But you need a twist on a spaghetti dinner to save money? Try this—you could serve at least 25 people for $35.
