|Tonight's Homemade Dinner: Fish and Scallops Stew with Homemade Bread|
Anyway, back to the cost. When I added up the costs of the ingredients, the stew and bread together came to $4.58 per person, or $13.75 total. While the stew was completely gone, I still have bread left over for toast or sandwiches. The total cost is nearly a quarter of what we spend when we four go out. We rarely get away from eating out for less than $50. So, even though the scallops cost $20 for the bag, I only used about 1/4 of them and still have more for other meals. It just makes more sense to put our money into groceries than into going out.
