Eating Out

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

We eat out entirely too much and we have made a vow to not eat out anymore and well since then we have eaten out several times.

I think my main problem is I get lazy sometimes and dont want to cook. Maybe a good perscription for the eating out problem is to have some easy back up meals tucked away so I dont have to complete a huge meal process and still dont have to go out and spend 20 - 50 dollars on take out food that is most likely going to get me in trouble as far as calories go anyway.

There are these voila meals that come in the frozen section at the store... we usually get the garlic and chicken pasta. You just throw it in a pan and add 1/4 cup of water and heat it up for 10 minutes. Its really easy and if I add 2 extra cups of frozen broccoli I can make a 2 serving meal stretch to 4 servings, which brings down the calories a bit more and makes our meal budget go farther.

I think I need to think about this stuff before it arrises so I am prepared with a smart solution.

    I know what you mean about the eating out. It's so easy to get into the habit to run and pick something up, but boy does it create havoc on our wallets and waistlines! emoticon

    What type of things to you like to eat? You like sandwiches, casseroles, grilling, pasta? Let me know and I can give you some ideas! I work full time so I don't want to spend forever in the kitchen cooking, but I enjoy cooking, so most of my meals take be about 30 - 40 minutes to cook. emoticon
