Manisha is a financial expert and was there to talk to us about finances and budgeting. This was perfect for me because Ben and I are just starting to budget in a responsible way! I am rushing out to get her book “Get Financially Naked” asap!
Dinner started as all dinners should – with warm bread and wine.
I got a Reisling because I really only enjoy light cold whites.
I started with the house chopped salad. The ranch wasn’t very rich so I ended up dumping it on top.
And the salmon left something to be desired. We were at a seafood restaurant and the salmon was overcooked – that was weird.
Since there was a disaster with someone else’s meal the restaurant manager sent dessert to the table. This is a deconstructed Bananas Foster. They shell is like an amazing brittle. It was pretty magical.
And an Oreo Ice Cream cake with carmel. It was amazing.
Kath and I had an arm wrestle match for the last bite. Okay not really – I stole it when she wasn’t looking…
One of the tips Manisha shared was that you should be saving 20% of your income – 15% for retirement and 5% for short term savings.
