A few weeks ago I noticed this young unencumbered couple was spending far too many nights and far too much hard earned moolah away from our own dinner table and out on the town. Now, this girl loves a good restaurant as much as any food loving fat kid, but I am also the stingiest little Ebeneezer you will meet this side of Dickens. I decided it was time to go back to my frugal ways. Time to pinch those purse strings and stop being so frivolous.
I told myself no going out for two weeks (one night we knew we had an event we had to go to, but other then that – no going out!)… I made it like 4 days. After Handsome had to remind me brunch counted as eating out the morning after I declared I strike from indulgence… But, in 4 days, I was reminded that home cooked meals are the way to go. So, I’m going to try again, and try to get back to my roots and cooking more home made goodness.
As I start considering those pesky 2014 resolutions, I know cooking more (go figure, from the food blogger) is a big one. What about you, guilty of one too many pizza nights? If you are good at staying on track and cooking in a lot, how do you plan and organize meals on busy weeknights?
