A commentary on a guy and a gal cooking and eating.
A Couple of Cooks
Food. We all need it to survive. It’s up to us to choose the quality and quantity we consume. My husband and I hope to share with the interested few our fondness for home cooking and eating in the form of this BLOG.
Admittedly, I am a bad shopper. Or at least I have always claimed to be or felt like I was…. Until recently! In the past, I found little or no pleasure in shopping. I always felt exhausted and fat after a day at the mall, and never seemed to have any luck with my online clothing and shoe purchases. My residence in downtown Baltimore, a retail desert, has only compounded this condition.
Motherhood has changed that for me. Shopping is fun! I love buying new things (most of which are by necessity) for my little one and little one on the way and after two pregnancies, mommy’s style is pretty hurting these days. I’m in the market for a new look both at home and in the office.
Dollars are limited, as they are in most households with children, and so I’m always looking for a deal. And now I have discovered a secret…. After a year of or more of self deprivation to save a few dollars here and there, necessity has driven me to the stores and I just found out that you have to spend money, to save money! What a concept! Customer rewards, points, coupons, and sales abound! Again, I’m just getting started. Join me on my quest for retail therapy and to both shop and save!!!
I generally enjoy a hot lunch over a sandwich any day which is usually why I bring dinner leftovers to the office everyday. Of course, sometimes there are no leftovers or I am not prepared and that is when having a supply of Lean Cuisine's, or other frozen meals, in the freezer is essential. I admit that I am a little cheap and only buy the meals that cost less than three dollars. Lucky for me, this usually includes the Asian varieties such as the vegetable eggrolls, potstickers (shown above) and the chicken chow mein.
