I'm Addicted To Restaurant Food

I admit it, I'm addicted to restaurant food.  It works directly against both my sensible goals of saving money and losing weight.  Unfortunately, the closer it gets to dinner time all I want is anything but what I have at home.  I not only love the food at restaurants, but the whole experience.  No shopping, prepping, cooking or clean up.  Plus I get to sit and have a face to face uninterrupted conversation with my husband.  We have a small apartment, and there isn't room for a dinner table so the formality of an actual table and chairs feels decadent.  Sometimes I just really need that bit of fun and escape mid week.  The worst part is I'll settle for takeout just so I don't have to face the whole dinner preparation situation.  I realize that I could save a ton of money and have a larger condo that does fit a table if I could just embrace fixing dinner at home.  Even assembling things purchased from the grocery store would be a huge improvement. 
This is why my husband and I have agreed next week to make dinner at home Sunday through Thursday.  (Well, who are we kidding I go out to dinner on Fridays.)   I'm already nervous, but how bad can it be?  I've thought of a million reasons why it won't work out, but I do love a challenge so lets see how it goes.
