Default How many times each week do you eat away from home?

I thought it would be interesting to see how much we eat away from home. You don't have to comment to vote unless you want to.

I do most of the cooking here because someone has to go to work So to give my wife a break we go out at least once a week and sometimes twice!!
Tonight we eat at home ....pork baby back ribs and diced potatoes with diced onions out of the garden and chopped sweet peppers,yellow,red and orange, cooked with the potatoes and onion.

I eat out way to much. Most likely do to a lifestyle change.

I only eat out about twice each month. I'm having a bit of an experiment to go several weeks straight, without going out to eat at all.

I got here too late to participate in the poll. My wife loves to cook and would be happy if we ate out once a month. However, now that my sister-in-law is widowed, we probably average eating out 5 times a week. She doesn't like to eat out alone and hates to cook, so we usually pick her up after work and eat out somewhere. It gets a little old after a while - we'd much rather have home-cookin!

Rman, I'm like you. I prefer to eat at home. When I worked on a public job I had to eat lunch out, and it got old real fast. Now we eat out Saturday for Breakfast, and Sunday Lunch after Church and at home the rest of the time.

I almost always eat out at lunch time. I don't like it much, but if I try to bring my lunch & eat it at the shop I never get left alone long enough to enjoy it.

I think we've only eaten away from home 3 times in the last 2 years plus. One way to keep expenses down.

We used to eat out all the time but we have turned into real homebodies. We used to hit happy hour almost every day and now I'm just not very social. Can't carry a concealed weapon in a bar in Florida. Exceptions are places like TGI Friday's and only at a table. If caught you lose your privilege to carry. ("Privilege to carry"??? I thought it was "right to carry"!) Duval Street here is legendary party time but the young "gangsta's" have taken that over. Anyway I don't particularly like being somewhere known to be full of drunks ready to fight without my side arm on. It's very peaceful at home!
