Not as much as I'd like to, only once or twice and usually just for convenience, not to a good restaurant! On the other hand, at least I enjoy cooking and I'm not too bad at it!

Yes, I think that it's a good thing. Good to break up the monotony. No matter how much you enjoy cooking, or eating at home, it's always a good thing to discover new dishes, as well if you're adventurous, to discover new cultural cuisines. Aloha!

Cook's night off! - Cook's night off!
In an average week we would eat out once - usually on a Saturday., Occasionally on a Sunday. But if we don't have any functions on, Saturday night is take away (take out in the USA:) ) night. It's become a tradition so that the cook (which is me) gets one night off a week.

Heehee! A day off is a good thing. I like to cook, but sometimes I get tired of trying to figure out what to cook that I didn't eat just a week ago.

Up until a month ago I used to eat out just about everyday. Now I have a bunch of bills and quit eating meat so that makes me eat in a lot more. I prob eat out for dinner once a week now. The better I become at cooking the more I want to eat in. I think I only eat out if it's with friends

Good for you! Cooking is fun! Just gotta remember what you did, though, so when it's real good, you can do it again!! You're probably healthier now without all that junk food anyways. But I can't give up meat. Aloha!

We eat out to much. I wish I was better at eatting at home. I think we eat out about 4 times a week. It is so bad. Cost to much money too.

It does cost alot if you're not eating off of the dollar menu! And that menu gets old, so you can only do that so much. I've learned to do a few quickie at home things to make it a little easier to eat at home. But I still like doing a nice restaurant when I can afford it.

Is that your little boy on your avatar? How precious! I bet you're busy with his activities which makes it a need to just pick something up on your way home from practices and events, eh? Aloha!

Skint. Is that like broke? Alot of the fast food joints around here have $1 menus now, so even when I'm really low on cash I can still get a burger & fries! Aloha!

Usually no more than one night a week - usually Saturday,. If we don't go out, then we buy take away (take out) on Saturedays. My night off from cooking:) I do love cooking too, though only one or two in my family are adventurous which makes cooking boring at times.

Hee! I love to cook and to experiment, too. But sometimes my experiment turns into...going for take-out! Aloha!!

eat out - eat out
I think we eat out only when pay day. ehehhe..Well that is true. My hubby is a stingy as well as myself. I do not really want to eat out because I don't like how they cook the food here anyway. I like to cook my food the way I want. I am a filipino and I wanted the taste of a filipino food. I do not eat the spaghetti here...I want a sweet style spaghetti...with banana ketchup on my spaghetti heheheh...filipino spaghetti I want:)+ Muah!

Hee! That's what I've noticed, my Filipino friend ALWAYS gotta eat filipino when they go out! Hee! I keep trying to get them to go somewhere where I can read the menu!! I've never heard of banana ketchup, much less adding ketchup to spaghetti. I'll have to look into that one!! Aloha!

three or four, depending on how busy I am on my freelance writing work or making jewelry or working to move animals out of flood zones, like all this past week, when we've eaten dinner out every night on our way home late in the evening

I eat out everyday. Because of the long working hours I spend in the office, I'd rather spend time catching up on sleep & resting myself instead of worrying about cooking meals.

Is that once a week a treat at a nice restaurant or fast food for convenience sake? Thanks for replying! Aloha!

We probably go for a meal once every two months. Well, since my son has started going skating we'll go to McDs or something so that's been once a week recently.
@meeoww (1174)

That's not bad. And after skating, it's usually to late to start cookin, not to mention it's a nice treat for your son after working hard. Thanks for replying! Aloha
