Hubby and I went to Tractor Supply to get us some chicks this morning.(By the way, they were out.) Of course while we were out and about, we went and had something to eat. We ate at a nice restaurant. The food was good but the service, not so much. Sure it was busy, but not any more busy than a normal Sunday afternoon. Our waitress kept giving us excuses. Dumb excuses. I hate excuses. Needless to say, she didn't get a very good tip.
Then I got to thinking about how people, in general, make excuses. They think that once they give them, then everything is fine. My dad always told me,"Excuses only satisfy those who make them." And, he is right. Take me as example. I was making excuses about not having money to build a barn, yet Hubby and I were eating out. We eat out a lot. So what I've decided, was to see how much money we can save by not eating out. Every time we want to eat out, I'm going to put the money, that we would have spent, in a "barn fund."
I don't think we will miss eating out. We like my cooking and service better. One of the main reasons we do eat out is because I get bored with making the same things over and over. I need some new recipes. I thought about going through a cook book or two (I have a million of them. I think.)and just pointing at a recipe and making in. Maybe I won't be that bored in making dinner then. I'm going to get a barn one way or the other!!!!!!
So I'm also asking for your help. Do you have a recipe that you love? Please share!!!! And then if I find one I like, I'll share here too!
So until next time,
Small Farm Girl, soon to be barn owner.
