Hamburger or hot dog? I’m a hamburger kind of person, always.
Hot dogs just don’t cut it. I mean how can you compete with the perfect home grilled burger?
For the longest time I thought I had to go to a bbq or out to eat just to get my burger fix.
Recently I was scrambling around Safeway trying to get ingredients to make a quick satisfying dinner when I got home.
As soon as I walked past the burger patties, I knew exactly what I wanted. I was also really excited to find 100% Grass Fed Beef ready-made patties in the freezer section.
It took me awhile to figure out how to cook the patties properly without smoking out our apartment. You’ve gotta learn somehow…
But, for a solid week, Eli and I had amazing burgers right at our fingertips.
Sometimes making dinner every night can be hard. People need food, but don’t always have a lot of time to make it.
I work part-time at a coffee shop. I leave my house at 12:40pm in order to get to work on time for my 7 ½ hour shift. I then get home around 9:40pm, and I’m not always in the mood to do anything but sleep.
Dinner kind of gets pushed to the curb on days I work, unless I start cooking at 11am. I know it sounds crazy to make dinner before some people even eat breakfast, but it’s always worth it when I have food to eat at work.
With that being said, I understand how busy life can be. You have to make sacrifices in order to achieve your goals (even if those goals just consist of sleeping, eating, and work, etc).
I love food, I try to make it my #1 priority. Even if it means my kitchen is only clean 10% of the time.
When I do find something easy to make, that also tastes amazing, I get REALLY excited.
Especially when the top things I have been craving this pregnancy have been tacos and burgers. I’m just glad I crave actual food, and not just cake and ice cream…
Most of our eating out budget has been spent on tacos from the taco bus. I can’t get enough of their $1.50 beef tongue tacos…
Eating out isn’t a practical option either. It costs too much to do all the time.
One of the good things about making burgers at home, is I can spend about half the price on ingredients that it would normally cost for a $10 burger at a restaurant.
Keeping stocked up on food that inspires you to cook, can really help make the whole process a lot easier.
That way when you’re hungry, you don’t have to worry about having enough time to run to the store to get food, or break the bank by always eating out.
