If you haven’t noticed everything is getting more expensive and raw food products are no exception. Going to a restaurant is a must when on your first and even second dates, but the reality is it’s much cheaper to cook for her at home. Overall, food prices throughout the country jumped 4 percent last year, up from 2.4 percent in 2006, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. After nearly two decades of relatively low food inflation, prices for bread, milk, eggs. rice, beef and flour are rising at double-digit rates.
Wholesale food prices increased 7.6 percent in 2007, the greatest single-year food price increase in 27 years, according to a National Restaurant Association (NRA) analysis of Bureau of Labor Statistics data. Therefore restaurants have no choice but to raise prices.
Cook for her at home because it will not only save you money (so you can buy something useful such as Grand Theft Auto) but it makes you appear like you are a romantic guy.
