And this Lent, Matt and I have agreed to take on a practice we hope will help shape us in good ways: we're giving up eating in restaurants and taking up cooking for ourselves (and, hopefully, others!) We even make our first several-day meal plan.
I don't think I've ever gone more than about 4 days in San Diego without having at least one bean and cheese burrito from a drive-thru. I also can't remember the last time we cooked more than 2 meals at home in a week. This could be big.
If we also live into our hope of eating more locally, it'll also mean we can make use of all that deer meat in our fridge...and the chard in our yard.
