As I was eating my lunch today I realized I should share with you one of the many benefits of cooking dinner at home. If you plan your menus and cook large enough dinners, you have your lunch sorted out for the next day. You save money not once, but twice (or more, depending on the meal and how much is left!).
I often am tempted (and give in to that temptation) to eat out for lunch when I’m at the office. It’s just that it’s so easy to run down the road and grab something. But, oh boy, does that put a damper on the budget! I’d like to go on vacation this summer. Eating lunch out 2-3 times a week sure won’t help me save up any cash for that!
So last night’s dinner leftovers were stored away in a nice lunch container and I brought it with me to the office today. A lovely roast with potatoes, carrots and asparagus awaited me when I realized I was quite hungry and needed a break from the piles of paperwork I was sorting through. I not only saved the cash I would have spent on lunch, but I can now use my lunch break time to write to all of you. 🙂
Comfort food. It’s not just for dinner anymore!
