Just treated my sister to dinner

At a really nice Chinese restaurant.

I’ve been going over her house once a week for dinner for years. I should have done this a long time ago. But I’ll start doing it more now. Including the tip it came to $80.00!. I’ll treat her again soon but not to such an expensive restaurant. But it felt good treating her to a good meal. My family has treated me countless times to restaurants, movies, plays, etc. One meal is just a drop in the bucket but it felt good nonetheless.

Always good to pay back. Big ticket but sounds a nice meal and treat. Good for you.

My parents come to my place on a Wednesday night every week since I moved out, and I go to theirs for Sunday dinner.

Works well.

Maybe you could do something similar with your sister?

Well, that’s something to think about.

It has made my cooking not too bad. I enjoy trying to buy something different each time from Aldi

If I didn’t do this I’d probably not eat properly twice a week!

When it’s just me I will have a frozen pizza or a microwave meal!

This is a very good idea @77nick77 . I don’t see my family very much except on special occasions like holidays and birthdays. And my sister now has a tumor in her brain so I don’t know how much longer I’ll have her around.

You’re giving me the idea to call her tomorrow and invite her over for a home cooked dinner and a Netflix movie.

I hope my sister and I can be on friendly terms for the rest of our lives

I kind of think she hates me

We were uber close growing up

Nice thread Nick

It was a very nice restaurant.
I told my sister to get whatever she wanted. First, she ordered a big bowl of soup and gave me some. Anyways, we had the soup, brown rice, drinks, a plate of Chinese style baby back ribs. She ordered a big plate of something and so did I. It was all huge portions and we both ended up taking doggie bags home. Also, I left a $13.00 tip.

Also, it’s California. I grew up there and know that everything is more expensive
