One of the weird things I’ve found to be grateful for in this season is the level of cooking I’ve been able to reach with cooking more. Granted, it’s not as pretty as this AMAZING brunch dish from Hanks in Austin that I DEVOURED the week before social distancing kicked in, but it’s getting close.
WE’RE SAVING MONEY
Idk about you, but going out to eat is one of our favorite social outings. We were shocked to see just how much we were actually spending on going out to eat and are now pouring that into foods that are lasting more than just one meal.
I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER
I’ve found that when I eat out a ton my body starts to feel it HARRRD. I have zero energy, I feel sluggish, and am left with zero motivation to get my body moving in the way that I need to. Cooking more of the meals we eat leaves me feeling full of energy and excited to tackle my goals.
IT’S BUILT MY CONFIDENCE IN THE KITCHEN
I used to always assume that I was TERRIBLE at cooking. When we got married the extent of my skills ranged from crispy beef tacos + spaghetti. Being in a position where we’re cooking more means getting creative and trying new things and y’all I’m actually not that bad!
What’s something that would have NEVER made your gratitude list before that you’re finding yourself thankful for?
