I hate to admit it but Johnnycakes and I have been in a total food funk for the past seven days. You might even call it a takeout bender. We haven't been cooking at all! Does this happen to anyone else?
It all started last week when I wasn't feeling well. Plus, we had plans outside the house every evening last week which meant we were eating out. I have to say that, while it's a bit of a break to not cook or clean, I am feeling pretty fat and lazy after a week away from the kitchen. I must have gained 5 lbs.
Plus, we wasted a ton of fresh fruits and vegetables including our Farmers Market goodies from last weekend (corn, cantaloupe, string beans, etc). I hate to be so wasteful.
So what have we eaten this week? Chik-fil-a, tons of pizza, Salsarita, nachos at a local joint, Beach Bum sandwiches, pad thai from the farmers market, cheeseburgers, fries, stuffed shells.... The list goes on! We pretty much wasted a ton of money, tons of fresh groceries and tons of hard work on futile workouts.
I am just hoping we can get our butts back in gear and back in the kitchen. After all, the Couple of Cooks fundamentals revolve around health, convenience and economics. But not tonight, we're going to kill the leftover pizza in the fridge.
