I’m terrible at eating on the weekends. During the week, I tend not to have a lot going on, but my weekends are always super busy. Even if it’s not running errands, there are recipes to make and blog, photographs to take and edit and now a house that never seems like it’s going to stay clean for more than a few hours.
Of course, when I get to this level of hungry, there is absolutely no interest in eating something that is going to take more than 5 minutes to prepare. I then have to rely on ingredients that can quickly come together, such as a sandwich, or resort to bags of microwave popcorn. Let’s not talk about the number of bags of microwave popcorn I go through in a month though, okay?
