My New Cooking Style

So my goal this week was to cook at home at least six out of seven days. I had my meals all planned out and the shopping done. It saves money to cook at home and it is much healthier. I cooked dinner Friday night for everyone. Breakfast for dinner. Somewhat healthier than eating out and definitely cheaper and tastier. We really enjoyed our meal.

Then Saturday hit. Like most weekends, it was packed. A youth car wash in the morning, which ran into lunch. If you’ve ever been around teenage boys, then you know they simply must eat and often. We wound up ordering pizzas. I had a slice of cheese. Didn’t cook lunch. Then, I planned to fix dinner but we got a call that a church member had fallen and gotten hurt, so we went to pray with her husband and for her and just make sure everything was okay. By the time we were done, we went ahead and ate out with some friends.

Now, it is Sunday. We decided to grab lunch at Arby’s (yuck! I really don’t like their food much, but the company was great). I sit here at 4:30 p.m. typing this, realizing I’m not hungry enough yet for dinner and likely will be too tired after youth tonight to cook.

I think my new cooking style is eating out. We eat at home so seldom these days that it almost seems like a treat to eat at home. I’m actually just kidding. My goal for the rest of the week is to have meals ready or in the crockpot and no more eating out, other than a lunch date I have planned with a friend already. I’ll keep you posted on how it goes.
