Bringing The Restaurant Home

When we do dine out, often times we eat in places where the following sentence can be completed: "We must eat here, I just love their _______." In our home one of our biggest weaknesses when it comes to eating out is beverages. We're total nerds for establishments that provide a quality drink and not just your standard sodas. In fact, we went as far as to track down the Iced Tea we go out for... to make it at home!

Our tea ended up only being available in bulk sizes (you'd be surprised what you can find on Amazon), but at the rate in which we drink it... we're ok with that. Each order comes in packets that when made at home, only require a small amount of the contents. We empty all of ours into an airtight container and use only the amount needed.

Have you ever tracked down your favorite product? It could be a salad dressing, condiment or beverage (if you're nerds like us), or maybe you perfected a technique or dish you had? We all know eating in is one of the best ways to save money and if you have what your craving is calling for, it's even easier! Tell us your food weakness in the comments below!
