How often do you and your family eat take out?

When I'm not pregnant we rarely eat take out but I find that we eat it more when I am pregnant since one I'm lazy and don't want to cook and two I can have a craving at a moments notice and need to get some take out..lol. Lately Jackson has been playing t-ball twice each week so I will run by Wendy's and pick us up something to eat so we can eat before the ball game. His games start at 6:00 and I don't get off work until 5:00 so we have to eat something fast.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

Very rarely. We homestead as much as possible and have much of our food stored in our root cellar and freezers. I work from home and get out of work at 5:30, so getting dinner going for DS's 6PM soccer games is a challenge. I crockpot and single pot cook alot, usually putting something together during my lunch break at 3PM.

We live out in the country and restaurants are a solid 35 min away, so dining out is a rare treat saved for special occasions. Even our recent wedding anniversary DH brought home special food we can't grow (sea food) and we prepared it at home.

We do this mainly because of our location and because I'm just plain too cheap to buy food. In addition, DH has health issues and most restaurant food makes him so sick, it's not worth it.

Maybe 4 times a month. Sometimes more and sometimes less.

I have spent the last couple days laying on my side in bed or on the couch because I'm getting so painfully big. So cooking and doing dishes are becoming less and less desirable to do. Fast food and take out are sounding better and better each day. DH isn't very good at cooking... bless his heart because he will try, but it usually doesn't end well. So if I don't feel like cooking DH will pick us up something. It's quick and easy but not preferred.

About twice a week. We live in a city where restaurants are plentiful and there are lots of healthier options (Lebanese, Thai, etc). I'm in my first trimester and dealing with a lot of nausea. I can manage to eat if it's put right in front of me, usually, but preparing food is a HUGE turnoff.

Normally we'll eat out once a week. Lately though I'm with Mel - I can eat if there are options and I'm not preparing it. If I have to cook something lately I can't eat it by the time it's ready. Tonight we're going to the drive in for a movie so we usually stop and pick up something to take with us (but I won't know what I'm in the mood for until it's time to go). So lately we've been eating out about 3 times a week, hopefully we'll cut back once I'm in the second trimester.

We might go out a couple times a month. My DH eats out more often since he works 2 jobs, and will just grab something on the way sometimes. I might go get something on my own a couple times a month. usually when I don't feel like cooking.

It varies. At home, maybe once a week, at work, it depends. When I am at work I eat out about once a week for lunch, sometimes more, especially when I am traveling.
