Today was a travel day for my wife and I. We had been out of town for 2 weeks for our wedding, and were coming home to a deliberately empty fridge. After a 4 hour drive, I knew I wouldn’t feel like grocery shopping on an empty stomach. So, we went out to eat, which we can’t afford to do often.
I quickly unpacked all my belongings, and prepped for grocery shopping (produce bags, reusable shopping totes, etc.). Before leaving the house, I packed two quart size mason jars. Voila! To-go soup containers. I used them for all our leftover pho.
I did use a paper napkin and a straw. Usually, I refuse straws, but the waiter had already placed it in my glass when he brought my water.
Next time, I won’t forget my napkin or glass dharma straws.
