You lovely people all know by now that we LOVE us some restaurant food.
And our budget shows it. Literally every month we fight this mental battle (and lose often) against eating out. We’ve tried to go cold turkey, we’ve tried budget for a meal out every now and then, and nothing has worked.
Now that I’m working from home, our eating out spending has decreased to almost nothing. Sure, we swing through McDonald’s occasionally, and we definitely pick up a super-cheap hot dog while we’re at Sam’s, but I’ve noticed that I’ve been enjoying cooking (and I actually have the time) at home now!
But we still enjoy our restaurant food, so I’m working on putting together a collection of our favorite CopyCat recipes, to be prepared at home to give you the eating-out feel without the expense.
