Our air conditioner went out this week. Well, it didn't actually go out but both of the drip pans have rusted causing the water from the unit to soak the ceiling in the garage, thus causing a part of the ceiling to fall. YAY! NOT! Needless to say it has been an eventful week around here and will continue to be for the next 7-10 days while we wait for the new pans to come in and be installed. GO US!
We live in Alabama. The state motto should be: 'gets hot in April and stays hot till October'. Trying to cook in a house with no air when it is 98 degrees out is not a fun thing. I turned the stove on the other day to boil two eggs for my son's breakfast and about died even with the windows open and fans on. We have become 'eating out junkies' since last Monday when this all took place. We are trying our best to eat healthy but I know we are falling off of the bandwagon. There are plenty of healthy things on the menus but it is still a daunting task when you are used to eating at home. We have been working to choose healthy salads, salad bars, baked potatos, fruits and such as much as we can. Subway has become pretty regular, we had Ruby Tuesday last night,(their kids menu is pretty decent), Chick Fil A, and we have done Wendy's as well.
What are some of your favorite healthy things or healthy place to eat when you eat out?
I am hoping to break the eating out cycle tomorrow. I will be heading to the store (finally) with my list of things I can cook in the crockpot or on the grill.
