How much does your two-person household budget for food every month?

So, I've been mucking around on Mint.com lately, and I realized that we are spending way, way too much on food. We're a household of two -- husband and wife -- and we enjoy eating good, high quality meat and produce. We'd also like the flexibility to eat out every once in awhile.
I think I have a starting place in mind for our food budget, but I'm really curious to see what other people think is reasonable to spend on food every month. I expect to get some kind of wake up call here, though I'm not sure which monetary direction it will be in. Or, we may discover that we're mostly normal, and that would be useful information as well.
So, if you live in a household of two people who share food and eat meals together -- what's your budget? It may also be helpful to know whereabouts you live, or failing that, if you're living in a metropolitan area with much higher cost of living or in a rural area that's very inexpensive. Also, it might be useful to know if your diet is unusual in any way. Do you eat pizza and ramen every day? Filet mignon two times a week? Thanks for your responses!
