22 Takeout at Home Ideas

22 Takeout at Home Ideas

My dog walker is out of town so I've been working from home the past two days. Everything they said would happen has come true. I live in sweatpants, sleep until the last possible second at which point I roll over to my laptop and work from the bed for an hour or two, and I have Usher's greatest hits on constant rotation. I'm not sure anyone's ever described a deep, existential rediscovery of your favorite R&B superstars as a byproduct of working from home, but it's very, very real, you guys. (These are my confessions...)

I have also not cooked at all, which doesn't make much sense since I could literally reach out and touch my stovetop right now. But much like how new parents describe having two kids as inexplicably and bogglingly easier than having just one, working from home makes feeding yourself inexplicably and bogglingly more difficult. Plus only talking to dogs for a couple days makes the prospect of a delivery person very exciting.

Alas, takeout was the #1 reason behind my 2016 spending freeze so I have to be strong. That doesn't mean I can't eat kung pao chicken for a year, though. It just means I have to convince other people to buy me kung pao chicken. Or I have to make it myself at home. 

So I collected some incredible takeout at home recipe ideas from my favorite blogging friends. Read up and send 'em some love! And then get kung pao-ing.
