365 Inspirations—267: Cooking at Home

Brussel sprout, italian sausage, onion, and sweet pot soup
I'll be honest, it's not easy to eat every meal at home when you live in a place like Seattle. We have dozens of food options within a five mile radius—Ethiopian, Korea, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Taiwanese, Chinese, Mexican, Indonesian and the list goes on.

With so many amazing choices right outside my door, who'd want to cook?

The thing is, I went on a trip to Peru and my next paycheck doesn't come for just over two weeks, so cooking at home it is.

And the menu has been lovely.

Today my husband cooked Korean rice cake soup for lunch and I made two crock pot dinners that have lasted us a loooong time. The weather is just starting to get a little cooler, so we've been making soups and warming foods.

We had chili for a few days and then we had chili potatoes with cheese and yogurt for sour cream with a nice green salad. I also made a 10-bean soup with anything I could find in the fridge—broccoli, carrots, sausage, onions, garlic, ginger. It was divine and we are still eating it.

Eating all meals at home is not easy with a busy schedule and tempting choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner within minutes from our house, but we are trying this out and it's been good.

How often do you cook at home and how often do you go out to eat? Do you have a good recipe to share?
