Budget Beat: Linda's on Osborn
During stressful times, what's more comforting than home-style cooking? Not much, if you ask me. When I lived in the same town as my parents, I loved heading over to their house after work or the weekends to eat some of my mom's cooking. I'm sure many of you feel the same way. 'Cause, you know, food just tastes better when it's made and served by your mom. That's just one of life's absolute truths.
When the missus and I checked out Linda's on a recent Wednesday, we ordered off the specials board, which featured a bunch of plates for $6.95, including spaghetti and meatballs, BBQ ribs, Mexican lasagna, and liver and onions. See what I mean about comfort food?
She got the spaghetti and meatballs. I thought I'd take the Mexican lasagna out a for spin. Each came with a modest side salad (consisting of some iceberg lettuce, shaved carrots, and tomato chunks), a little basket of bread, and a basket of saltines (this old-school amenity made me smile).
