    With the " What's your monthly grocery bill?" thread, got me thinking about how often I eat at restronts. Fast food atleast 3 to 4 times a week, and sit down restronts atleast 1 to 2 times a week. Hardly ever have lunch at home anymore unless I'm grilling steaks. Think I'll fire op the grill tomorrow. :laugh:

    Not often at all. 3 kids makes it a PITA. I live 5 mins from work, so I just come home for lunch. Wasn't there a thread about this a few months ago? :D

    Since I'm too lazy to take my own food to work with me, I always order from the $3 employee menu at the restaurant in the hotel where I am employed. That or I have something delivered from Domino's or Little Philly... So...... about 20 times a month, give or take a few... Sometimes I work an extra day, or I actually DO bring my own food...

    Yeah I wasnt trying to make a big deal out of it, just wanted to point it out. However I must say Paul has come a very long way since Ive been here atleast as far as his spelling goes which is great. :D

    We go at least once a week for family Ice Cream night. It's like a garaunteed thing we do, I want the kids to be able to count on us having at least that time for each other, no matter what.

    I also tend to hit a deli once or twice a week now from work. Wife and I go out to eat together probably once every two months...

    Yah, restront was troubling me a little too...

    very rarely...

    I never eat out unless I have no choice!..only once in a blue moon do we get a pizza,or go to KFC or any similar fast food joints..there are tons of places to go eat here,but they all pretty much suck for the most part.I avoid going to Wendy's,Mcdonalds,Burger King,etc...They are usually staffed by people that hygeine does not appear to be their first priority,(and cant understand plain english!)--and I've gotten sick after eating at such places more than once,so I stay away from them,and use the money I'd waste there to buy FRESH food,and prepare it myself...better than a stale burger left from last night sitting under a heat lamp for hours,with flies walking on it! :doah: :eek1: :crazy:

    Funny you should start this post. After I saw the responses from the grocery thread I was gonna start a similar thread :p:

    The wife and I may go out to eat 2 times a month...that's it. It's usually to Applebees or maybe Red Lobster. Fast food is almost always out of the question unless we are on the road and need a quick bite to hold us over. We try to eat healthy so there is NEVER any sodas or chips in the house either :eek1:
