How often do you and your family go out to dinner at a restaurant?? How many times a week? month? etc...

How often do you order out but take it home to eat??



How often do you and your family go out to dinner at a restaurant?? How many times a week? month? etc... We usually eat out about once a week sometimes twice. (this doesn't include if we grab lunch somewhere, just dinner)

How often do you order out but take it home to eat?? The only time we really get take-out is when we get pizza. If we eat out anywhere else we usually eat there! We get pizza about once every couple of weeks.

We don't go out much as a whole family, usually just for birthdays. There aren't many awesome options for gluten free and vegan needs. Dan and I have a few places we frequent that aren't really kid-friendly. He and I go out probably once a month.

We get some kind of takeout once a week. We love Chipotle, Thai food, or food from a local vegan diner. Usually by Saturday night, after cooking two meals for everyone in one day, I want someone else to make the food

Racine, is that vegan diner the one with the really awful cheeseburger that seems really out of place on the menu? If it is, my sister LOVES that cheeseburger

We eat out once or twice a week, maybe more. Usually out of laziness...so we've sworn it off for 2 months! Unless we plan it into our menu/budget we aren't eating out anymore.

We rarely get take out. Mostly pizza if we do but sometimes we'll do Chinese.

Mylene, haha! That's probably Stellas...they have meat options that they call the 'Pet Cemetery'; I'm not really a fan. We love this place called Bartertown, they opened this past summer and their food is amazing and all vegan. Next time you're in G-rap, you'll have to check it out!

Eat out for dinner: Around 1-2x a week. Usually on the weekend we will eat out somewhere.

Take out for dinner: Maybe 1-3x a month. We'll sometimes do pizza, thai or chinese for take out.

DH eats out for lunch a lot though and he'll bring me food sometimes if I ask for it.

We rarely eat out as a family because DH isn't ever home for dinner during the week. I do go out with my mom and the girls on Wednesdays because that is DH's really late night (usually til 9pm).

Takeout- maybe once every 3 months

Eat out - usually once a week. We're trying to cut back though.

Take out - only Little Caesars pizza, or Chipotle, or Qdoba or a couple of other places. Typically once a week.

We generally eat out 1-3 times per week (lunch and dinner). We generally go out on Sunday nights after church and Riley and I will grab a lunch out during the week with my parents or friends.

We don't do takeout too often, but when we do, it's Chinese or pizza.

If I'm able to cook we eat at home. If it's left to Chris to make dinner he gets take out or we go out.

We usually eat out on Sundays with my family after church. Other than that - it is probably only once a month or so.

Take out - probably once a week. We will order a pizza or get Lion's Choice (a local roast beef sandwich place). We have definitely been eating more take out because of the pregnancy, but that will cut back as I am feeling better)

We used to be horrible about both...as in a few times per week. The past several months though we've made great improvements. Now we eat out at a restaurant maybe once every three weeks or so and take out maybe once every other week. It's made a huge difference in our bank account!

When I'm pregnant though, we eat out very often. When I'm pregnant, I don't like seeing food in it's uncooked state. Espicially meat. I need to encounter it fully prepared and completely cooked through. Raw meat makes me gag when I'm preggo. Still TTC (even though our hectic schedules aren't cooperating) so maybe we'll be back to eating out often soon!

Very rarely for both at the moment. I have been reducing additives and preservatives in my son's diet which has really improved his behaviour out of sight, so restaurants and takeaway are just a bit of a minefield at the moment!

We barely ever eat out....MAYBE once or twice a month. I think I've found a sitter for Rachel now though so maybe that will increase.

We do take out a couple times a month too probably...usually pizza or Thai...sometimes we will grab subway and take it home

Lea - Do you not eat out because Rachel acts up at restaurants? Do you take toys and snacks for her to keep her occupied?? It would drive me crazy not being able to take Peyton out with us because we love to eat out! haha!

That's not really why...we've never been ones to go out a lot...even before having kids. Rachel actually does okay in restaurants the few times we've taken her. Mostly it's dhs work schedule that prevents us...that and I'm cheap! Haha! Hopefully this sitter will allow for more date nights though!
