Last week we had a family outing and we had gone for dinner and that time when we were having a casual talk my husband said that off late we have been freequently eating outside and he said that it was too much and we should really restrict.Then we made a decision that we would have outside food twice in a month which I thought was a fair deal.So how often u have food outside? Regards

Yup, there are SO MANY discussions at myLot. We can't possibly be interested in them all and we won't have time to reply to them all too.

So SORRY, please ignore the above reply. I had typed it for another discussion and somehow I typed it into the wrong tab. As for How many times u go to Resturant in a month?, well, not too often nowadays since dough is tight. Normally, I will go there only when there is a special occasion such as celebrating a birthday or if friends meet occasionally. If you are asking about homecooked food versus outside one, well, we normally have takeaways over the weekends.

Lateluy I have been going a few times a week which i must stop, its getting a little expensive and I am not sure it is all that good to be eating restaurant food too often for the health issues...

In the good old days eating out once in a year was considered fashionable. But with times it has become more of a norm that people should eat out more often. I think it has more to do with the fact that now both husbands and wives work and so whenever they feel like they cannot cook at home or are tired, they eat outside. Maybe that is the reason for the failing health all around these days. Neither the hotels nor the hospitals complain though... Cheers! Ram

I can't say how frequently because it depends. Mostly we go out for dinner on my and my husband's birthday. We have parties at home on kids birthday's so, not for them. . Otherwise when we have a lot to buy and have to go shopping on a long day out, then we eat outside because I get all tired to come home and cook. Otherwise, when we take visiting friends out for dinner...So, I guess it should come to a maximum of 12 times a year I suppose.

We hardly go out to have dinner. One thing is it's too costly and also kids like to stay at home and have dinner. We order dinner from a restuarant on saturday night and we have a small party only 4 of us. (Me, hubby and two kids) We put music and all of us are dancing and having fun on that day. You may feel it's stupid but this brings our family very close and believe me because of this my 2kids have become good dancers as they try all sorts of dancing on that day.

I go out to restaurants quite a lot, probably due to my young age =/. Its great eating out with your friends, family and peers but it only leaves you fattened and your wallet is heartbroken.

Exactly... money matters! I'm a food lover, and a big chatter on the table. When my pocket is strong, I just eat around.

I have no choice but eat outside frequently. I am working far apart from my hometown,I live on my own. Sometimes,it's more costly to cook at home because less people in my rented apartment. Therefore,sometimes I prefer to eat outside rather than home cook. It's so troublesome sometimes as I need to prepare ingredients and wash all the utensils after cooking. But of course I would try to cook sometimes to cut down the frequency of eating outside. Lol.

I don't like to eat often in restaurants since I prefer more of home made food.It is clean and healthy.However,I like to go out with friends once in a while and dine in restaurants.Also with family,once or twice in a month.

We eat out about 10 times a month, which is way too much. We need to cut back as well. Its easier said than done. Friends and family are always planning to meet for dinner at some restaurant, or we find ourselves on the road with no time to cook. I wish we could limit our eating out to twice a month, but I don't think we have the will power. Good luck.

Seldom, maybe once or twice a year, especially when I'm invited because of their getting married or children are admitted to university. I never invite myself to restaurant for improving life. However, I'm not against eating out with family.

Hello,Seeth! I don't remember exactly when I had last visited a restaurant for lunch or dinner,but it might be about eighteen years back.And since then I have never eaten out.I like to eat freshly home cooked balanced foods than the restaurant foods.The foods are never cooked in proper hygienic conditions so lible to cause many diseases like diabetes,blood pressure and obesity and many other diseases.By eating at home you will save your health as well as save some dollars every month.thanx.

It depends on the month. Sometimes we go more than others because of birthdays, etc. Usually we go once (if that), while sometimes we will go twice. Also depends on how well we did that month with money.

Hi seeths, We rarely eat in a restaurant! The last time we been is a month ago, if I'm right. Sometimes it depends on our budget, but it is good to eat outside sometimes. But we go to a coffee shop every weekend, before getting our groceries. Have a nice day.
