In instances where others are paying, I usually order the second cheapest thing of what I like (don't want them saying "oh, you don't have to pick the cheapest thing!" and be all embarrassed).
W/ a steak, I ahve to have a starch and a veggie, so I would either get salad or some cooked veggie and a potato. No creamed spinach, though! Taht's supposed to be big at these fancy steakhouses. I personally wouldn't knwo becasue I've never been to one - LOL!
As far as clothes, if I can wear it to church on Sunday morning, that's good enough for me!
