A quest

I am on a quest, to reclaim parts of me that have taken a back seat recently and I am starting with food.

I am actively trying to bring my lunch to work and not spend money on going out to lunch (except as a treat).

I am trying to buy wholesome food, including quality protein and produce.

I am working on having more meals eaten at the dining room table and not at the counter or in front of the TV.

I am striving to make quality time with my spouse over a good meal.

I trying to drink more water and less caffeine.

I am cooking the food I buy and trying to reduce how much gets thrown away.

I have rediscovered my love of slow cooking and my crock pot.

So far I have managed to cook a meal every day since returning from Pennsic.  And it has been glorious.  Last night we even managed to sit at the dining room table. Projects were pushed aside so that [livejournal.com profile] telescope_merc and I could sit and enjoy each other's company.   I've decided that this is important enough that I am bringing back the concept of "Sunday Dinner".  Each Sunday (events permitting), I will post a menu, a picture and a recipe for our Sunday dinners. 

I challenge you guys to do the same.
