hi all

i dont know if this is old news or not, i was SHOCKED:

my friend used to work at macaroni grill about 6 years ago and he was the "executive chef". ( i know, i know, macaroni grill is a chain and it sucks...whatever....)
well, there are many pasta dishes on their menu within the 8.99-13.99 range. he told me that THEIR COST for these dishes, which include: the bowl, the ingrediants, the labor, and waste is .28 cents -- .33 cents.

isnt that crazy???!!!
