Used to be 5-6x per week going to a restaurant, especially in the summer when we can walk to the backyard patio with the dog and have a nice meal. We live two blocks from Main Street where we have 7+ restaurants. We know the owners, the regulars & the bartenders. If they don't see is fur awhile they start to worry :P

At the moment we're actively trying to save money (and eat better) so we treat ourselves 1-2x a week. We still don't keep food in our fridge* and don't make meals at home.

Actually I'm absolutely terrible. Because of the amount of time I spend per week between commuting and 2 jobs plus school full time, if I don't eat out, I don't eat anything at all.

So I eat out once a day or sometimes once every other day but rarely rarely do I not eat out in 3 days in a row.

As in to a sit down place/take out place? Maybe 3-5 times a year unless I'm traveling. To grab lunch at McDonalds or something? Once or twice a week when I run errands.

At least once a week. Really just depends what's going on. This last week has been moving hay and working on our yard and a neighbors- ate out a lot!

Going out to dinner is also generally where we get to catch up with friends. We meet in the middle somewhere.

For me, it really depends. Generally, however, we eat out on Wednesday and/or Sunday after church gets out. Some weeks we only do one day, some we do neither (like this past week).

Other than that, I really try not to eat out much (mainly because I don't want to spend my money). Lately I've been bringing my lunch to work (either sandwich or leftovers) and if I don't remember my lunch, I usually just don't eat anything.

On the nights I have class, I get home around 10:45 pm and it really depends what I do for supper those nights. If my mom cooked I usually just wait and eat when I get home. If not, I might stop for food but not usually.

I will say that usually on Tuesday (and sometimes Thurday), I go out to eat for lunch with my mom.... but she always buys it

On average I go out to lunch 1-2 times a week, grab fast food or carry out dinner maybe once a week. Go out to a nice sit down restaurant maybe every 3-4 months not counting vacations.

Lately we've eaten out couple times a week just because it's cheaper. Now we're getting back into the groove of making big meals and saving them.

A 300 pound man weighs how many pounds?

I actually ate out twice today. It's cold, I'm in a bad mood because it's cold, and I want a hot meal dammit. I got lunch at McDonald's and it was glorious. Then before I went horseback riding my mom said they're eating out tonight, so I stopped at Spangles and got a Classic American meal. It's awesome because it's a burger and fries and a drink AND A MUDSLIDE for $5. But derp, it's ice cream, and I'm already cold. It was good, but it was kind of pointless.
