Almost all of them. We grab lunch out on Saturdays sometimes if we're out running errands but that's about it except for specail occasions.

We very rarely eat out, only on special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries. No fast food ever. It's nutritionally horrendous, expensive and frequently tastes like cardboard.

When I was a student, I never cooked. A $3.00 all you can eat buffet would satisfy me for 2 or 3 days. The rest came out of a can or box. I had a $15/week budget for food.

Does opening a box of frozen stuff & putting it into the microwave count as cooking?

3x a day. With 3 adults and 5 kids in the house, eating out is waayy tooo expensive. Some of the kids have food issues and cooking at home is just easier. And it's soooo much better for everyone.On Sundays everyone comes to Grandma's house and I'm cooking for a tribe of 15 - 20. I'm lovin' it!!

We usually eat out or get takeout about once a week as a family. Kids sometimes grab a sandwich or something on the way to practices, performances, games. Hubby and I might go out for lunch or something over the weekend.

Almost every single night we cook at home. My hubby is a culinary student, too, so we share the duty 50/50 and man, if you have the chance to go to culinary school, or to send a spouse, I highly recommend it. I'm gonna get so fat, I can already tell.
