Sunday evening as I was making our menu plan, thoughts were running through my head as to reasons folks eat out more than they eat at home and I wanted to “discuss” this with you all. There are no right or wrong answers. It’s all a personal choice as to how much or how little you eat out. I hope that no one ever feels bad because they eat out more or less than someone else.
This is a little poll I prepared but please keep reading after responding to the poll.
There will be a couple other cooking related polls this week . . simply because I’m interested in your responses.
You already know that I cook a lot and we eat most of our meals at home. There aren’t any restaurants around town that we like . . we find the prices to be high at the places we like and always leave feeling like we get better food at home for less money and since I love to cook, I don’t feel like eating out is a treat for me unless it’s something outstanding and we just don’t get outstanding around here. Most any time we eat out, it’s because we’re in town and got delayed doing things and just aren’t going to be home in time for me to cook. If I know ahead of time that we’re going to town, I’ll do the cooking ahead – stick a chicken in the smoker or make something ahead of time that we can simply heat and eat. As far as cooking being time consuming, I figure that by the time I get dressed, we drive to town, get waited on and get or food, eat and drive back home, I could’ve cooked and cleaned up and never left home!
Anyway, I’m interested in your responses to my cooking questions this week. Thanks!
