Cooking Dinner Made Easy

Cooking Dinner Made Easy | Homemaking | Scoop.it

I have been saying this for years and I just heard it on Oprah so I’m sure that makes it true! Going out to eat is one of the biggest mistakes people make with their money. Most people would experience a radical change in their finances if they would cut back on eating out even a couple of times a week, let alone all together. I think that the main reason that people go out to eat is for the convenience. I hope to show you how eating at home can be convenient, too.

 

Jessica Gerald's insight:

"We have the idea that there are only two choices when it comes to providing dinner for our families. The first is to go out to eat and not lift a finger. The second is to become Betty Crocker, an Amish grandmother and Martha Stewart all rolled into one."

 

Those three sentences were very helpful to me.  Sometimes it's good to be reminded of things.  I realized that I was one of these homemakers who felt like a failure if I didn't make everything from scratch.  But convenience foods don't always have to be unhealthy, and at times they are also cheaper.
