Cooking with Sam

My typical meal used to consist of going to Chipotle or I would eat super simple like an apple. We used to spend a crazy grocery bill and then have more spent on restaurants. In order to pay off our mortgage faster, however, we are trying to stick to a food budget of $200 a week. In contrast, in January my wife said we spent $1400 on groceries and $300 on dining out.

I am proud to say that for the month of February we spent $804 on groceries and didn’t go out to eat at all! Also, $4 of that was spent at Albertsons on Lottery tickets so technically we made our goal!

But a few weeks ago I had the urge to eat something amazing. The idea of filet mignon popped into my mind and I couldn’t shake it.

One for my Pommes…

Have I written about cider yet?

I just did a search on my blog and it only showed up only once. So begins the tale of my relationship with cider.

My heart is as warm as freshly baked bread!

Today I checked the mail and, to my surprise, received a letter from my fellow accountabiliblogger, Hugh Murphy. The topic of the message was that he missed a blog post and enclosed was a gift certificate for Central Market!

It was an extremely nice surprise but what I wanted to blog about was the benefits of being a person of honor and integrity.

My love of Chipotle: Chapter 2, The End of the Affair

While there is a perverse joy in parking in the employee of the month space and this being my last week on the job, there is a downside to leaving. For the last 3+ years, I have been going to the Lewisville Chipotle and have an unspoken bond with the crew.

I might have to back it up a little.

My love of Chipotle: Chapter 1, The Beginning of the Affair

I think this blog would not be complete without telling you about my obsession with Chipotle.

Our relationship first began while I was seeing someone else. My girlfriend at the time and I were on a road trip to her hometown in Colorado. She told me about this cool place with huge burritos so we went to check it out.

I Might Have Made a Mis-steak.

So I broke my meat fast.

Last week I took my brother out to a Brazilian Steakhouse. To train for this event (which I referred to as “The Meat Olympics”) I ate meat at least once a day for the four days prior.

I had just been on a 21 day-raw fruit and vegetable challenge and having spent the last year as a Pescetarian I knew I was in for a wild ride.
