Let us take a challenge to eat “In” this week

Let us take a challenge to eat “In” this week. The writer Cathy Erway, wrote a book "The art of eating In". She went on a 2 year journey to stop eating out so much in New York City. Now there are a lot of amazing restaurants out there, and totally support eating out at times. This challenge is to share recipes and a love of food and making it all in your own Kitchen. We can pack our lunch and enjoy some really great nutritious foods that you make your self. I want to post her site for almost 2 years worth of recipes that she has made and to inspire you to "EAT IN!"
