Before I got married, I ate at restaurants every single day of my life. Heck, I was a waitress when I met BigBear, so I spend a HUGE amount of my time working in a restaurant and eating when I could.
I didn’t cook and I wasn’t sure I had an interest in cooking other than making the occasional vegetable soup or casserole. I could make cupcakes and cookies from pre-made mix but that was pretty much as far as I went with baking. Restaurants equaled food for me haha.
So what happens when you eat at restaurants every day?
You become broke as hell and your pants fit a little more snugly … I mean, You fall in love with their menu items! haha
Once I started to teach myself to cook, I used restaurant menu items to practice my cooking! I would pick our favorites from menus and try to recreate them at home! I know it’s super easy to just order take out but man, oh man is it awesome when you can create those favorites at home!
