I’m really proud of myself for something. I’m making dinner!
My egg casserole thing and pasta dishes I made last week ran out last night. I was thinking really strongly of ordering Chinese food.
Then, I didn’t!
I’m cooking up turkey steaks I’ve had in the freezer, boiling up pasta, steaming broccoli, and saute-ing bell peppers. I’ll divvy all of that up into two batches: one with spaghetti sauce and one with Alfredo sauce.
I’ve underestimated some of the expenses associated with living in St. Pete, so I’ve been a bit worried about money. One of my big weaknesses with finances has been eating out, which I do for three reasons.
- Food at restaurants is so darn tasty.
- I feel overwhelmed with other things and getting fast food or delivery just feels easier.
- I go out sometimes when I’m feeling lonely. If friends aren’t able to go out, I like to at least be amongst people.
So, I’m glad I made a step in the right direction today. Now I have meals for days, and I made them all with things I had in the house already.
Here’s to becoming a fiscally responsible adult.
Better late than never, I suppose.
