Re: How often do you go out to eat/eat takeout?

Oh god... the itch comes on Thursday so i'll usually make a spontaneous decision to bring in weekend mode over drinks and a few appetizers at a nice bar. Friday/Saturday night is typically going out for dinner with something that is planned. Sunday either i'm cooking for a lot of people or going out for brunch/early dinner.

Mon-Thursday I meal prep for most lunches and most dinners, sushi take out may very well happen on a random night as well.

    3-7x a week is a pretty wide range, but that's a lot of eating out. Good lord.

    You're doing it better than us. My newest thing, which is helping, is cooking something Sunday night that can last for 2-3 days. That's helping.

    My wife, who is a fantastic cook, I am lucky to get one meal every 2 weeks out of now. Her new job is demanding and non flexible.

    It is a pretty wide range. I picked that option, but we're probably on the low side. Just depends on how well I did that week with meal planning and how busy we are. The weekends get us; for some reason we lack total ambition to cook once the weekend rolls around. We can hit 3 times just between a Friday evening to Sunday evening easily once you factor in a breakfast or lunch - especially if it was a busy weekend and we weren't home much.

    If you're eating out 3-7x/week, you're still only eating out between 14-33% of total possible meals. Still not too bad.

    Re: How often do you go out to eat/eat takeout?

    2x a week for work lunch usually.
    average 1.5x a week for everything else.

    I enjoy cooking and have no qualms eating leftovers.

    I mean, 33% of your meals coming from a restaurant is a LOT.

    Re: How often do you go out to eat/eat takeout?

    Leftovers are weird for me.

    Anything we make ill eat leftovers of once. If we make a something that lasts more than 2 meals (pulled pork comes to mind), then I normally cant bring myself to eat it a third/fourth time unless it was really really good.

    Re: How often do you go out to eat/eat takeout?

    I'm on the low end of 3 - 7 times per week. My fiancee and I will usually do takeout once during the week, and then usually a breakfast and a dinner on the weekends. Otherwise, I try to cook meals that provide leftovers as much as possible.

    On a side note, has anyone ever tried one of those meal delivery services, such as Blue Apron or Hello Fresh? I've tried Blue Apron, and the meals aren't bad. At $50-$60 per week, you don't really save much money on groceries, but do get the convenience of having everything shipped to your door.

    Re: How often do you go out to eat/eat takeout?

    Twice a week on average, usually brunch on Saturday then take-out/delivery on Sunday.


    I cook M-F nights. Lunch is usually leftovers.

    I guess it's a matter of price rather than the fact you're getting your food from somewhere other than your own kitchen.

    It's not like I'm going to Ruth Chris's for lunch during the week. I'm grabbing a $7-8 sandwich once or twice a week. If I spend $50-100 on a dinner out on a Friday or Saturday once every week or two, that's within the acceptable bounds of what we allow ourselves to do. I'd say we average about $100/week on eating out per week when it's all said and done, between happy hours on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday, a breakfast out at a diner once a month, dinner out once a week...it adds up quick.

    2 or 3 times a month, generally on Saturdays. Occasional Friday or Sunday sprinkled in.

    The fiance cooks most weeknights. I occasionally cook, made spaghetti last night with some mean gravy. Homecooked meals are tasty and relatively cheap.

    I eat Fast food usually 3 times a week. I'll dine in with friends 1 or 2 times a week. And I eat out with my family some weekends

    My wife gets starbucks like 4 days a week. Pisses me off. I've tried everything I can to get her to stop without actually getting into an argument about it but it's her one vice. She's cut down on a lot of other spending but she just can't give up on those starbucks drinks.

    Any self-respecting Italian-American refers to marinara sauce and/or meat sauce as "gravy". Typically requires that something be cooking in the sauce for an extended period of time so as to infuse the flavors of the meat into the sauce itself; for example: sausage, meatballs, braciole, etc.

    I took the question to be anything other than cooking at home.

    Anyone ever have poke? That shit is good. Better than sushi, in my opinion. Also ate at this killer German restaurant this past weekend.

    I don't know, I guess if you don't count those then I'm surprised people cook at home that often
