Tonight's Dinner Forecast: A 90% Chance of Awesome
An indulgent stop at the local Italian deli/importer (Prague 6 is getting so damn cosmopolitan). A half kilo of sushi quality tuna, 200g of prosciutto di Parma (this stuff literally melts in the mouth), and a very nice pomodoro cuore di bue a variety of beefsteak tomato, which was invented by an American, ha, take that you Italian food snobs.
At 700 Kč (~37 USD) this is definitely a big indulgence since it really is just a nice dinner for three people. Before we had a kid, my wife and I would probably just eat the tuna raw with some wasabi and soy sauce. Now I'll have to make some rice and probably cook some of this wonderful tuna and mix it with the rice (and tell the kid it's salmon since that's the only fish he officially likes other than fish fingers). Of course 37 bucks, or the equivalent in some other currency, isn't that much money when going to a sit down restaurant and one usually isn't going to get even close to the quality of food for that price. Your mileage may vary depending on where you live.
