I feel like our evening dining is beginning to deteriorate. As more of the house is packed up, or in total disarray, it’s harder for me to focus on cooking. This is compounded by the fact that I really don’t want to do much more grocery shopping as I want to go through and finish whatever food we have in our refrigerator and pantry before we leave.
There is a lot of gluten free pasta in the pantry, hence all the spaghetti eating we have been doing in the last couple of weeks. We’ve also been tending to meetings that take us both or at least one of us out of the house in the evenings. When that happens, I’ve been happy to default to sandwiches which I love and is facilitated by the fact that I have found the best gluten free bread to date from Costco of all places.
The other thing that has been happening is that Jon and I have been escaping to the movie theater to get out of the half packed house. When that happens, I’m noticing we don’t eat dinner at all. In the past we have eaten dinner out and then gone to the movie, but we’re not really doing that now. We have both always loved the treat of a soda and snack at the theater, but it’s so filling, we just don’t eat.
I’m not feeling good about this habit. It’s bad food, nutritionally void and so ridiculously expensive. I’ve taken to bringing my own popcorn, which seriously… is the best popcorn in the WORLD. I kid you not. If you like popcorn, you HAVE to try this: LesserEvil Buddha Bowl Himalayan Pink Popcorn. This link is for a box of 3. Seems like a lot? It’s not. Trust me. It’s a great snack, taste delicious, and I take it with me now to every movie I go see, not to mention that I love to nosh on it while writing.
