Week 3 Challenge - Candlelit dinners
For two weeks, turn off the lights when you sit down for supper and enjoy your meal by candlelight.
Break out those candle sticks that are gathering dust in some remote cubby of your house. You know, the ones that you bought on sale forever years ago with images of romantic meals floating through your head. The ones that, three kids later, still sit unused in a box. Well tonight when you set the table, add those too. Turn off ALL the lights in the house, and enjoy a candlelit supper with those you love. Kids will love that it's something different, and you can love the fact that you aren't using electricity to enjoy the meal. Now don't think about the fact that you may have used a microwave or electric stove to prepare the food. Remember, these are just baby steps. One little change at a time, over time, will be a big change.
I would love to hear how you are doing with these challenges. Please feel free to leave a comment or a link to your blog sharing your experiences.
