Remember that pact you made with your partner about cooking at home more? Scaling back all those pricy, restaurant meals and take-out orders in favor of getting back to basics. Peeling the potatoes. Destemming the kale.
“We’ll save money!”
“It’ll be better for us!”
“We’ll make it just the way we like it!”
Then, after some time went by, routine set in. Old habits resurfaced. And Monday’s stir-fry began to taste an awful lot like Sunday’s Cauli-power Casserole. Until one day your guilt-plagued gut started longing for the rhubarb ginger Ghee at that Fusion Food Lab by the train station.
Now what do you do? Stick with the plan and keep the cooking in house? Or, break down and start outsourcing again?
Let the battle begin!
