Written Thursday night after work and never posted so I figured I would post it today 🙂
My plan this morning to make rice and veggies with soy sauce sounded less than appealing this evening on the way home. I was tempted….
The thought of coming home and having to cook even something as simple as rice and veggies sounded like too much plus I didn’t want rice and veggies I wanted….something else, something easy, something probably not good for me.
As I drove past Arbys, Applebees, Panera, and an assortment of other restaurants I reminded myself of a simple fact:
You can’t afford to eat out!!!
I had to yell at myself. If I turned down $4 lunch today in favor of bringing my own lunch I couldn’t turn around and spend $10 on dinner. That would make no sense. Plus I knew I wanted to save my money for my weekend plans.
I overcame my moment of weakness and drove straight home. Once home I remembered I took a container of lentil soup out of the freezer so I could have that for dinner. Easy, healthy, and free!
