Almost never! Of course when we travel, but even then I try to stay in a hotel with basic kitchen or a vacation home so I can prepare better meals most of the time. When I run errands around town, I always take an insulated bag in the car with my own snacks. It's hard to get the foods that I really like and want to eat when eating out. Plus it usually feels like such a waste of money to me! That's not to say that I don't end up giving in and buying the occassional "snack" !!! emoticon

The only break I get in classes is between Christmas and New Years. LOL
The are 7 week courses. Intensive and lots of information to absorb. I'm in week 4 of the Financial Accounting class so, 3 more weeks of it, then the break and right back into classes.

I'm down to once or twice a week. It went up dramatically when I was in my algebra class. It took just about every free minute I had to get through that one and eating out gave me more time to sit and work on it (usually while eating something I grabbed going through a drive through).
So, working on cutting that down and eating in more. It's like breaking a bad habit!

We're trying to spend less money right now, so I cook at home 5-6 nights a week. We almost always eat out Wednesday nights (it's crazy trying to get off work, get the kids, and get to church), and sometimes once on the weekend. Other than that, I cook, or my husband might grill something once in a while.

Lunches are packed, usually leftovers from dinner!

He is pretty cool! I do all the house and yard work to leave him more time for repairs I can't do, like electrical, plumbing, drywall and those involving heights. With our old house, there's always something breaking or leaking.

I usually dine out once a week, maybe less. Over the years, I've cycled between dining out a lot, cooking all the time or not cooking at all. Since I gave up meat, hubby has been cooking a lot. He'll have steak or pork (while I have a veggie patty) and I'll help make the sides (salad or veggies and rice.) He also makes a mean goulash and will make a special meatless batch for me.

Unfortunately I eat out more often than I should. A lot depends on the homework load for the week. I'm also on the road at least a couple weekends a month and generally eat out all those meals.

I cook like it's my job practically every night. Partially because I like cooking, partially because I'm low-carb and gluten-intolerant, and partially because I know it's the best way to get healthy food and reasonable portions. We go out to eat maybe 3-4 times a month not including vacations. Usually, my husband says, "lets go out" and I say, "are you paying" and he says "no" and then I cook! I also have a week of meals planned in advance so I'm never sitting around thinking about what to make.

How often do you eat out every week? How often do you cook every week?
