More Expensive Meals from Fridge (Grocery Incentives)

I've had the game since christmas.

What did I only just learn today? Food has ingredients! And owning those ingredients makes the food cheaper. But there's pretty much no incentive to buy ingredients.

BY DEFAULT: The markup is 50%. Meaning:
Waffles require an egg.
Eggs cost 10 simoleons.
Waffles without any eggs cost 15 simoleons.

NOW: The markup is either 250%, 500%, or 1000%. Meaning:
Waffles require an egg.
Eggs cost 10 simoleons.
Waffles without any eggs cost 25 or 50 or 100 simoleons.

Here's an example: At 250%, here's food with an egg in your inventory and without:



This means you'll spend a LOT more on food unless you bother to go to the store and buy groceries regularly. :D New families especially will need to be sure to buy groceries.

Only use ONE! Edits the Recipe_blahblahblahb XML file.
