Going Out For Dinner: a 5 to 9 #Microadventure

Mid week, working week, the old 9 to 5 grind. No time for adventure. This is real life, after all.
But even sensible people with sensible jobs and respectable bed times squeeze some fun into the week.
Friends gather for dinner, at someone’s home or out at a restaurant. Or perhaps they go to a pub, to eat a meal and talk rubbish together over a few beers or a bottle of wine. Moaning about the world, planning projects or dreaming of the summer holiday.
If this is your idea of a fun evening out during the week then here is an idea for a sociable midweek microadventure…
If you like the look of this then ask yourself, “what is stopping me doing something like this tomorrow (or next week at the very latest?)”. Are they good reasons or are they slightly lazy, wimpy excuses…?

P.S. Here is the recipe for our stew

Thank You

  2. Love it!

    How do you wash the pans? ..or do you just sling them in a bag and do it when you get home?

      We take a small packet of wet wipes with us for cleaning the pans.
      We also use tortilla wraps instead of bread for our bacon and egg in the morning – it doesn’t get crushed in the bag.

    Great plan, but one for a Friday night surely? Not many workplaces would appreciate your turning up unwashed & smelling of smoke in the morning!

      If its not to far from home you can scoot home for a shower, or some workplaces (mine for example) has showers at work. Just needs a bit of planning:-)

      Loving the whole concept – I can feel an outdoor meal coming on!
