I cooked my own lunch today

So you’re thinking huh!!! So she’s patting herself on the back for that? I do sometimes cook just for me when DH is in hospital, but I’m mostly out anyway, and in Japan, if you choose well, you can eat out, and eat healthily and cheaply all the time. And I’m not very fond of cooking either, especially for one.
The thing is, last night, I went out for dinner with my daughter and we had a fabulous meal and it wasn’t outrageous, but it wasn’t cheap. I want to do it again next week, and I want to justify the expense, so I looked in the fridge and used up stuff left there: zucchini, onion, sweet potato and egg, and had them with rice. Some of it would have gone to waste. Was it good? Meh! It was OK, but I can put the savings in an imaginary piggy bank for the next fun meal with my daughter.
Cooking forced me to focus, too. The first few days of his stay, I was very focused, but with things relaxing now, I’ve become rather scattered, and it was a good exercise in slowing down and concentrating the mind.
And I’ve met my freggie count today for the freggie challenge.
