Eating at home means eating with your pet. Our dog spends virtually every meal with his head on my husband’s leg. He doesn’t beg by whining, but instead just sits there with his entire head on my husband’s thigh. If he’s too hot, then he passes out on the tile floor under the table.
How did you do eating at home for ten days? I have to say that the first ten days (before I even blogged about it) were easier than the second (when I started blogging about it). My creativity dissipated over the course of the second ten days. We’re moving so I’ve been shopping less and eating down our reserves, which is part of the problem. We just don’t have the food to go around. Twenty days of eating at home prior to a large move? Definitely not the best idea ever, but I really have figured out my “triggers” for eating out. The biggest one being “no food in the house.” Ahem.
There’s still time to enter the giveaway for a coupon holder (the saying on the front is priceless). Please leave a comment on this post or any of the previous posts.
What did you learn about yourself eating at home? My key learnings:
- I need to menu plan more often. I just don’t feel on top of all my meals. So I just joined a meal planning service: The Fresh 20. Maybe that’s what I need.
- I underestimated how frequently we eat out as family. By focusing on eating at home for practically the whole month of July, I’ve become more mindful.
- I underestimated how much the cost of eating out. Again, now that I’m aware, I’m more focused on money. Mindfulness is so important.
