How often do you have it? It is part of your "meal planning"?
We usually only do fast food on weekends when sports are out of control, for example tomorrow we will be at soccer and then face painting at a pumpkins even, so we will probably do taco bell for lunch. With a family fo 6 we have found taco bell is the cheapest for us.
Maybe a couple times a month. No it is not part of my meal planning...It generally is a spur of the moment thing when our day has been really hectic or I am not feeling good.
We have it several times a week. I go straight from work to the gym two nights a week, so one of those nights is usually Chick-fil-a. I go several times during the week for lunch, and we often have it for lunch on Saturdays because we're so busy. We try to stick mostly to healthier places like Subway.
MAYBE twice a year, if at all. I plan quick meals or crock pot meals for those days when we'll be extra busy.
We usually go out to eat for lunch after Church on Sunday a couple times a month. That's about all the fast food we eat.
We never have what most people think of as fast food. We will, on occasion, pick up Indian fast food (like samosa)
Robin in Chicago
Maybe once a month and it's usually sub way.
Our fast food will be to stop at our local sushi place and get take home sushi!
We have a meal out, either fast food or something less casual, twice a month as a family. My husband also hits up BK twice a month. His paycheck comes in very, very early Thursday mornings, every second week. Since he's at work at that time and there's a 24-hr BK where he works, he gets dinner there on payday weeks. That figures into my menu planning since I only send 1 quart of drink and snacks for the early part of the night.
Thursday afternoons when he gets paid, we do all our grocery shopping for two weeks, plus pick up our CSA share. By the time we get home, the last thing I want to do is cook so we usually pick something up on our way home. Yesterday, we had Fazoli's. Unless I plan a make ahead meal for Thursdays (a couple weeks ago, we had tostadas), I generally plan a take out meal for those weeks.
