Week Dos

This past week was not as bad for the No Eating Out Challenge. I ate out with friends at the newly opened Indian Restaurant. Finally! Vegetable Samosas! Lamb Saag! Naan! I was in heaven. I didn't do so well later when Dr. Man came to visit. We went out to eat alone to a local restaurant. He had to drive down and I had to work all day and we were just beat. Plus, there was little food in the house. We did manage to eat in the rest of the weekend, though. So, I'm pretty proud of that.

This week I think will be a little harder because... drum roll, please... Dr. Man moves back to UniversityTown on Tuesday! Marie is coming up this weekend to help move him. Then, we're continuing on to Dodge, packing the truck, and leaving! I'm so excited that I can hardly believe it's really happening.

This also means a lot of traveling on the road and being tired at the end of the day. I'm planning on bringing sandwiches and stuff for the drive up, but I'm not so sure about what we'll do while we're in Dodge. Kitchen stuff should (and that is the operative word) be packed and it's awfully hard to make food without pots, pans, and utensils. So, it'll be an adventure.

And a life without adventure is just boring, right?

Deb said...

Good luck with the move!
But indeed not the best time to make wonders in the kitchen...

Alice said...

Sounds like an exciting time for you. I am always trying to reduce how many times I eat out without much success.

ScienceGirl said...

Yay for the road trip to move Dr.Man to be with you!!

I am back from my trip, and I love having my kitchen back - so even if it is hard during the trip for you, you can make up for it when Dr.Man and you are back in your house!

I've been trying as best I can to not eat out. It never goes well. Ever.

*sighs*

I'm a terrible lazy cook.

Good luck with the move. I love a good road trip!

Jennie: Hopefully, I'll make it through :-)

Deb: It's the lunches that are hardest for me. It takes a lot of planning in the morning.

Stepwise Girl: Ditto that. It's hard enough for me to make non-wonders in the kitchen under the best of circumstances.

Alice: This has helped me be at least more aware and to prepare things in advance.

Science Girl: I'm counting on Dr. Man helping with the food thing as he's the better cook :-)

Aunt Becky: Me too. If it was up to me, we'd have cereal for dinner about five nights a week.

Lost in Space: Thanks!

Cheers to adventures and delicious food!

I like the picture of your dog. Mine has to wear a gentle leader as well...

Cheers to dogs that pull to much!

Apologies: I meant "too" not "to".

DC said...

Good luck with the move and the diet! :)

Amanda said...

Alice: Most definitely. That thing is the best contraption ever!

DC: Thanks!

You have me drooling at the thought of Indian food. I may just have to have my husband pick some up from our favorite restaurant tonight. It has been forever since I've had it. You're making my stomach growl with all the food talk :-)

I agree everyone need a little adventure in their lives! nclm

Good luck!!! Can't wait to hear how you get around having your kitchen packed.
