Moving Day Dinners: What Do You Eat After Moving In?

We just posted about our first night in a new home over at Apartment Therapy Chicago. We wanted to come here to ask you all about your first meals in new homes. Ours last night was:

Ground turkey and steamed broccoli mixed with barbeque sauce, with a sweet potato cut into "fries" and baked in the oven. Pretty ad-hoc — a result of a hurried run to the grocery store in torrential rain. However, it was nourishing food that required little attention but still allowed us to try out the appliances a bit and re-energize.

Prior "first suppers" when moving into two other new homes have included: takeout pizza while sitting on the floor, and, well, um, takeout pizza while sitting on the floor. So, there you have it. This one may have been a slight improvement, as it was enjoyed from a bowl while walking two dear family members through a quick tour of the house.

What have your first meals in a new home consisted of? Anything as random as ours? Or do you eat out/ order in until you're settled? Let's hear all about it in the comments below — we're still trying to figure out what to do tonight!
