Category "Dining: Dining"

Whenever I try to categorize an entry as "Food & Dining: Dining" Quicken defaults to suggesting "Dining; Dining" as the proper category. Since I don't have that category set up (nor do I want it), I have to manually select the category I want. Does anyone know why this non-existent category keep getting suggested? This has been bothering me for years, but I'm finally getting around to asking.

    Personally, I maintain 2 top-level categories: "Groceries" and "Dining". That's because I consider Groceries mandatory spending and Dining discretionary spending, and I like to keep those separate.

    I use top level cats "Groceries" and "Restaurant" (which included fast food and food trucks).

    That's why I call mine "Dining". I don't eat fast food or truck food. Blech. :s

    We have some EXCELLENT food trucks in town.  And, BTW, I'm also an officer of a 750 year-old food and wine society.  I don't disparage based upon source.
    Fast Food is, primarily, Big Mac & Fried for the 3yo grandson.

    I would give Grandson his own Category.
    Anyway, you've known my squirelly persona long enough to know that I was joking in my previous post. ;)
