  • I cook everyday, but my husband and I have a really bad habit of ordering food once the kids to go bed...it's something we are truly trying to stop!

  • Ever since I got my tax's now that everything is paid off...its almost like im taking a break from cooking. It is getting out of control though =/ But I always order pasta, or things I would cook. Not pizza, fries, etc.

  • Does the drive thru count as take out?

  • Never - we have no take out options in our town. The only "restaurant" is the bar - they do burgers & sometimes other specials. But the nearest place for "take out" is over 20 miles away - so I can honestly say we never do take out.

  • We actively avoid it. I cook almost every meal in double or triple batches, throwing a meal or two in the freezer every day. This way I can just pull something out of the freezer, which was previously cooked from scratch rather than processed, on the days when things are hairy.

  • I cook nearly every night. We only get food delivered about once every couple of months. It's pretty rare. We go out every so often, maybe once every couple of weeks.

  • I would say in our house it is about a 75 25 ratio of me cooking verses eating out. We could go weeks without eating out and then we get busy with sports, after school events, doctor appointments and we will eat out. My DH gets paid every two weeks so every once in a while we will get Chinese food from our favorite place.


     I love to cook and so does DH so eating out, while it can be fun at times is something we try not to do. Also, we are trying to save money and cur back.
