Waffle House.

Just kidding, My House. I'm good...

If by fancy you mean tasty and nutritious served up just the way you like it.

And beverages! Lawzy! I don't charge any more than the liquor store and I fix it like you won't be driving.

No, because you are me and you are in My House.

Taste this...

My hashbrowns are not only spelled correctly but are fresh grated and served often with onions, peppers and maybe an egg or two.

How about some home brewed hot sauce with those 'browns?

I've got some really well fermented tabasco from last year and some Barbados style habanero from this season. Both are really good.

One of those French cook your own damn food by sticking them in a pot of boiling broth places... and not the chain, the Melting Pot. One more fancier and more expensive...

Some lowly 3 star joint in Paris; I can't believe they ain't got no 4 star places over there but the food was good. About $2k per head but that included some awefully good booze.

french laundry in yountville, ca (napa valley). was about $325 for two including a tip and a bottle of turley zin.
left hungry and absolutely crushed a double whopper + large fries and o-rings at the burger king down the road.
calorie intake was probably like 4,000 between both. i regret nothing.

I spent the better part of a week at a 5 star resort overlooking Lake Geneva. Stunning view.

Breakfasts were a bargain at about $75, and dinners were about $125+. This was 25 years ago. With 4 waiters for a two person table, plating the food was almost theater. The food was great, though the portions weren't huge. I didn't drink, so I didn't sample the wine.

It was fun, but when I got home the first place I went to was the Venice Pizza House in San Diego for some incredible pizza.

I used to work in and run some very nice restaurants... we had a wine cellar that was enviable, a generous owner, and chefs who worked magic.

Oddly enough, the most expensive meals could never compare to some of the home cooking I have enjoyed at home and abroad.

Most expensive dinner for two was El Gaucho's Brazilian Steakhouse- like $60 after some kind of promo discount my wife won. If you're into meat, this is the place- they walk around with various cooked critters on giant skewers and slice it off at your table. Venison, lamb, beef, pork...

Swankiest (and almost as pricey) was at a local steak and BBQ joint that gets rave reviews. Multi-course meal affair (which was the first time I had a multi-course meal other than an app before the entree or salad before entree). Been there once and won't be back- wife and I both agreed it sucked.

We hardly ever eat out. Eating out is a treat, maybe 3 times a year. My father-in-law raises grass fed beef and we all raise true free-range chickens (running around in the yard, not just packed like sardines in a fenced in field so they can say they are not in a cage.) Vegetables come from the garden.

Fancy food would suck. I see the stuff on TV shows and wonder, who would eat that crap? Give me a nice pot roast slow cooked all day from home grown grass fed beef, potatoes, and corn that was dug from the ground and picked from the stalk 5 minutes ago.

Was recently in Oahu for 30th anniversary, we had a very nice meal at Sarento's at the Top of the Ilikai for about $100 per person, including drinks. White table cloth service, great food, great view.

A few days later, we also ate at Roys on Lewers Street in Honolulu. Great window seat, wonderful service. Again about $100 per person, including drinks.

On the same trip, we also had plate lunches of Kaula Pig and I had an omelet at Kens Plate Lunch out on Kalanianaole Hwy... tasty, no table clothes, plastic plates, few flies buzzing about. Less than $20 total. We also had Dim Sum for breakfast one morning in China Town in Honolulu... total of $25 for two... tasty... and the sad thing, is some people warned us away from China Town.

Nothing like a little variety, eh?

While farm to table is all the rage, and indeed food tastes best when "right off the stalk," frankly that diet of beef, potatoes and corn would get rather boring and old after a few decades. Ya might want to add some fish or asparagus from time to time... maybe even a salad.

I've done some travelling, been to Europe where I ate in some nice places. One place in Paris had bills from Benjamin Franklin and Robespierre. But it wasn't outrageously expensive, and it was part of a tour package.

Probably the most expensive was a place in Toronto. My boss was trying to impress her boss. $20 martinis, Kobe beef etc. I think with the bar bill it was close to $200 a person. But I can't say it was worth it. One getting close to it was a Japanese restaurant.

One of the best meals I had was at a winery restaurant in the Niagara region. It was three courses, each course paired with a glass of wine. It took two hours, and cost about $250 for two. And every bite was amazing.

My front deck. Home grown beef, garden fresh salad & vegies, neighbor's blueberries pie... priceless. Then there was the lobster-fest (pricey at about $20/head) - no waiters/waitresses, but plenty of kids happy to take the shells down to the creek to watch the fish nibble at them..

It's "fancy" because we use actual silverware & cloth napkins & pepper mills... that's what makes a restaurant "fancy", right??
