I have eaten dinner in restaurants for the last 5 nights in a row, which is incredibly unlike me. I'm not exactly sure how that happened. I am starting to feel a little bit gross from all the restaurant food though. This weekend I am going to try to not eat out at all! I enjoy eating out, but after a few days in a row I just want to eat at home. When I was growing up we ate out a lot. I'm not particularly sure why. My mother is a great cook, but for whatever reason my parents prefer to eat in restaurants. At some point I just stopped going along with them most of the time when they went out for dinner. So I fended for myself. I was also not allowed to cook though when my mother wasn't home (that is a long story having to do with my brother putting a frozen pizza in the oven while it was still wrapped in plastic). So I ate a lot of cereal for dinner. Or yogurt. Now still, after I eat out a lot, or eat heavy meals several days in a row, I crave yogurt and granola.
Despite having reached near-capacity for restaurant food, I had fun at dinner tonight. Nora and Alex are in town this week, so I had pizza with them at Emma's, which is always delicious!
