OK, since I’m on my “realist rampage,” I’m just going to tell you how I strategically improved my food consumption and minimized my budget at the same time yesterday.
My husband and I snuck away for a rare date sans children. Instead of ordering the overly large portions of food served as entrées at most American restaurants, we decided to stick with the appetizer menu. We shared three tasty appetizers, two rounds of drinks, and a bill half the size of a normal dinner out. So much more satisfying. It might not have been organic. Or even wholesome. But, someone else prepared it. And cleaned up after it. To say they had me at “hello” would be an understatement. OK, maybe technically it was “table for two?” Either way, a girl doesn’t mind being waited on every once in a while.
But that was yesterday. This is today. Do you think it’s unhealthy to feed my family bagels and cream cheese for three meals a day? It’s kind of a versatile meal. What other meal can you feasibly eat for breakfast, lunch, or dinner?
