I hate spending money on food, as much as I love to eat there are so many things I would rather buy than an onion. As I stand at the counter watching the dollars on the till move up and up I almost want to cry. We worked so hard for that money and it will literally end up going down the toilet eventually. As gross as it sounds standing at the checkout I could see flushing flash before my eyes.
Really when you think about it eating cause half of our work. You have to actually work to buy the food, then shop for the food, then cook the food, then clean after and then eventually clean your bathroom. Think about all the work you could skip if you didn't have to eat.
Meal planning absolutely takes a lot of the pressure off, but I find with Mr.N's erratic work schedule even that is hard to do. I'm not one to cook a meal for myself, I'm happy eating toast and cheese or a bowl of pasta with butter and salt. I've been known to eat popcorn for dinner out of lazy uninspiration. One desperate day I even e-mail Rachael Ray to do a segment on cooking for one, I received no reply and no segment :(
Wish I had bought shoes today instead of red peppers..
