21 days...

So theory is that it takes 21 days to form or change a habit. IF you do something for 21 continuous days it will then become habit for you to do it.

With this said tonight is night 8 of cooking at home. Now I did not set out to prove the 21 day theory but we will see what happens. The 18th will be day 21.

Some of you may remember that it was our New Year's Goal to cook dinner at home one night a week this year. August we kind of slacked off on that. We are back on track and even ahead of the planned goal. We have even made a small dent in the freezer. The flip side of this is that we may have put a few restaurants out of business.

I have even baked dessert a few times. These are the Red Velvet Jumbo Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting I made yesterday, from scratch.

I challenge you to take on the 21 day theory. Cook, clean, exercise, eat veggies, whatever make a change.

The cupcakes look wonderful and I want to eat one! You must be painting today...have fun, with the smoke in the air it's a good day to be inside breathing paint fumes.

Isn't red velvet cake a southern thing? I think you need to share your recipe so I can impress my neighbors!
