  • It used to be about 5 times a week, but about a year ago I made drastic changes... now it;s only about 2-3 per month.

  • About once or twice a week for drive thru or delivery and twice a month if that for a sit down restaurant.

  • Maybe twice a month, but almost always fast food. We rarely eat at sit down restaurants unless with with the whole family - brothers, their wives, their kids, etc.

  • Usually once a week. Me, hubby and the two younger kids (5 and 9mo) usually go to the diner for breakfast or lunch once a week on hubby's day off (while the older kids are in school). Sometimes we go more often if we have the money. Last week we took all 5 kids to the buffet (cheapest way to go when all of us are eating) after we went hiking. We rarely get fastfood.

  • We treat the kids to McDonalds about once a month. They like playing in the playland.

  • I live in an area where we have to drive at least 30 miles to get fast food or name brand pizza. What gets me is when I go to a metro area is the fact that every corner there has to be a half dozen places to eat... no wonder why so many people are getting fat. Hell if I lived near a Taco bell and a pizza place I would too weigh 300 lbs.!

    but no I live in a small town and have to make dinner because I can't call the gas station and ask them to deliver hot dogs and I'm to lazy to go get them, lol,

  • Drive thru - for the whole family, maybe once a month, for just a couple of us, probably once a week
    Sit-down restaurant - once every couple of months
    Order-in - once every couple of months
