[caption id="attachment_216" align="alignleft" width="150" caption="I am drooling as I write this."] [/caption] Since we started Boot Camping, I've been cooking at home a lot more and I really enjoy preparing healthy meals. But I do miss eating at restaurants. And it's not just the food I miss. (Although I do miss the food . . . and the beer.) I mostly miss the act of going out to eat. Even if you're in the habit of going out a few times a week, eating at a restaurant still feels like a special occasion. And since it's a special occasion, why not order a side of gravy for your fries? So I miss it. I miss catching up with friends over a drink while we wait for our big fat meals to magically appear. It makes me happy, and in the short, cold days of February, this is no small feat. How do you replicate this 'special occasion' feel — but without saddling up to the trough? How do you find comfort and happiness — hold the fries?
