We have been doing a very European eating/cooking style lately… I would have said French specifically, but to be honest, it seems like the French really only ever eat red wine and baguettes.
We talk on the way home from work about what sounds good, then we agree, meet at home, see what we need to make it (if anything..usually we need something).
Then we walk to the store with our canvas bags and get the few items we need.
We go home make it and eat it.
The night is still young (and super sunny), we waste less food, we eat something fresh (and exactly what we want right then), we have had a walk and we get double points for using our own bags. Win-Win-Win.
I know this will not always be the case for us but for our lifestyle right now, it works.
