at last, a meal out

March 16, 2008 |  Category:   dining out family


We don’t eat out that often, which is sort of ironic since we are foodies (or at least in a past life we were) and Mark is a chef, but we just can’t afford it since we’ve become parents. We’re lucky that we have the food budget down to a science and we cook ALL meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner every single day. No, we don’t even do takeout or indulge in buying snacks and drinks when we’re out and about. Doesn’t sound so fun, does it? But you get used to it after awhile.

My favorite food to eat out is sushi, particularly because it’s not as easy to make at home, and it’s becoming Mia’s favorite as well. I can’t recall the last time we had it, but my dad came for lunch yesterday and took us out for sushi – a real treat! It was so nice to bite into the buttery soft fish again and suck on salty edamame shells.

    that’s impressive that you can stick to a food budget and cook all your meals. how do you do it? any time and money saving tips? in nyc, it is especially hard. i’m a new parent (in brooklyn and korean too!)and i just can’t find the time to cook anymore. can you post a meal plan for the week (if you do that kind of thing).
