So Garth and I were eating too much take-out so we gave ourselves the challenge to not order take-out for the rest of July. And just a little side note, take-out for Garth and I is not fast food. We almost never get fast food unless we are on vacation. I'm sorry, I felt like I had to defend that. Our faves are sushi, thai, and Med take-out. We eat healthy take-out! But I digress.
The whole challenge lasted a week and we caved. I know you're thinking, "But what about all that food you bought at Costco!" But here is the problem with Costco, you spend a lot of money and you get a few products that last months. There is only so much veggie burger, turkey hot dog, and spinach pasta a girl can eat. And sure, we won't need to stock up on toilet paper, cheese or eggs anytime soon. We did last a whole week without ordering take-out and that was pretty huge for us!
And if I could justify? Sunday was our 3 year anni of being together, we HAD to celebrate! And last night? Well, I have been sick with this horrid cold and I just HAD to have Panera french onion soup!
We failed this challenge. BUT we are not quitters! We're going to Walmart this weekend and we'll stock up on staple ingredients so we can cook a wider range of foods. And if you have any suggestions as to what a staple kitchen item is I could really use your help, thanks!=)
