Feeding the Poor

Times are really bad (via Glenn Reynolds):

Amanda Freitag is all about feeding the family.

She's executive chef at The Harrison, in Manhattan's trendy Tribeca neighborhood. Freitag treats guests to an inspired New-American menu that tourists and New Yorkers alike can't seem to get enough of.

As The Early Show Saturday Edition's "Chef on a Shoestring," Freitag sought to take a traditional, three-course spaghetti dinner and give it a little twist any family would love - on our new, lower, recession-busting budget of $35.

Ha! I just had the simple combination of pasta, sauce and meatballs. Cost: $4 max. As commenters there point out, this budget of $35 leads to an yearly dinner tab north of $12,000. The article is more hilarious than informative.

Are you kidding? What kind of crap-assed pino noir are they going to serve for that budget? Times are tough but get real. Are we supposed to live like animals?
