June Eat at Home Challenge – Day 1

Goal #64 is to eat at home all month 12 times.  June 2010 is our second attempt.  (The first attempt, April 2010 didn’t go so well.)

Day 1 – I’ve attempted this many times in the past, but have never completely gone an entire month without eating out. Eating out is my weakness. I love to have someone else make a meal for me, and then clean up afterwards too. I know some people don’t like the taste of restaurant food compared to their own. I’ve been told by DH that I am a good cook, and I think my own food tastes good, but I really do like restaurant food. So this month, as a family, we decided that we are going to do it. DH is definitely on board, and the boys have to follow whether they want to or not, lol. They both agreed to it last night though, so they are on board too. (Although Eddie asked for Burger King today. I had to give him a gentle reminder.) I didn’t start out to well with the menu planning though. I was going to go to the store today, but the long weekend got me all mixed up. I forgot I had to go to a client’s office while the boys were in school so instead of taking them both with me I decided to wait until tomorrow morning when I will only have one. So the boys are having cereal and waffles. DH and I are having leftover burgers from the weekend. Not exactly full of nutrition but at least we are eating at home! One day down – 29 to go!
