On clothes? Not lately. On a car? No. On a meal out? Rarely. On dinner "in" tonight. Big time. Worth it? Completely.
We had my parents over for a "breakfast" dinner, which has been dubbed "brenner".
We eat breakfast for dinner a lot, see our first blog entry!
What was on the menu?

The verdict? RIDICULOUS.
"This could get habbit forming really quick" my dad said "it's unbelievable." "I'm full" Matt said, "this is too good to be true every time we have it."
Splurge? OH YEAH. It's good to do that every once in a while.
