My friend goes out every week multiple times, I may go out once a month if I'm lucky. I absolutely hate eating out, because they dont make it my way. I know bad, but I can't enjoy the meal unless its a certain way. My friend was telling me I'm picky for example my rice, I liked it fried and a crispy taste to it.

The thing I don't like about eating out is that it's more expensive than cooking your own meal. Besides, it's also more healthy to prepare your own meals. And, in third world countries like mine, you bet your own home-cooked meal is cleaner than those eaten outside.

I also think it is good at home rather than eating meals. Now a days the cost is very high for food in restaurant.

The only thing why I don't want to eat out is because it is very expensive. I'd rather cook my own food at home to minimize spending.

Yes, it can be very costly for such little portions.

well the only kind of rice that I will eat is basmati rice, I don't like the other store brands. Most people I know here in Montreal only buy the basmati as well.

I like going out to good restaurants, because I enjoy food. I like having someone wait on me sometimes, and it is nice to enjoy foods that I wouldn't necessarily have the time/energy/space to prepare at home. After all, I live in a small space, and I cannot currently easily prepare certain dishes. I do enjoy cooking, but being in such a small space does crimp my cooking style. I prepare the majority of our meals at home, but it really is nice to go out and enjoy a meal with my boyfriend.

Eating outside sometimes provides us delicious flavor while i doubt whether it is healthy enough.So i prefer to cook myself also.I'm always a picky eater so this brings me lot limit eating outside.I just only enjoy the moment with my friends so it is necessary sometime.

Oh that is sad to hear. I love eating out, especially if the food is good. I think that in order for you to enjoy a good meal at a restaurant, you must choose a very good one. There are lot of ways to cook rice and I think you should advice the waitress how you want your rice to be cooked when you place your order Dear. You can even tell the waitress upon order how you would like your main dish to be prepared.

I like going out to eat every now and then..I love my cooking or course, but always nice to have someone do the cooking for me and serve it to me...It nice to see different people and faces in resturants...It even nice to eat food prepared differently from yours... I am one who does not mind some deversity in my life... But I can't knock you, its to each his own...

It's actually good that you're not eating out a lot, the costs are a lot higher when eating out rather than just cooking your own meals, not to mention the calories. I don't eat out a lot too. I guess I eat out about once a week or every two weeks. there even comes times when I don't eat out at all. I enjoy home-cooked meals and I could save a lot if I eat in. Have a great mylot experience ahead!

Aside from being expensive, yes indeed some restaurant foods really could not satisfy the way we want it to be. Sometimes it is over cooked or under cooked. But there are some restaurant that trully ignites my appetite. As in yummy yummy food.

For me eating out is about is more about the social aspect rather than the food. Maybe that is because I live alone. When you go out for a meal you sit & chat and often meet new friends. Eating at home is more about getting fed - then moving on to what you want to do next.

I couldn't go out to eat every week that's way to much. Certain foods make me sick so I have to watch what I eat. But my boyfriend and I eat out every sunday at the bowling alley when we have our bowling league and that's good enough for me. We mostly cook at my place or his place when we get together. I don't have a gallbladder anymore so I have to watch what I eat and has to be cooked certain ways. So I agree with you there.

My kids and i love to go out to eat. It can be very expensive so we just go when they have family nights etc. I am a huge food lover and very picky on food as well but being a vegetarian I am limited on what I can eat at resturants. I think if you found a place that was low cost but served delicious food just how you liked it you would enjoy dining out at resturants more.

I often think of ways that I can cook things better than the restaurants can. You are not alone. All this means is that you are going to save money by eating at home more often. Nothing wrong with that.

I think it is good to eat at home than at eating out. I think it is always good to eat homely food. I love eating at home and love homely friend. I think homely food are good and also good for health compared to food from fast food. I think there are lots of recipes one can try at home.
