The "Cost" of Eating In Versus Dining Out

submitted on October 19, 2010 by lootango in "Member's Lounge"
This is a very interesting comparison of eating in versus dining out taking into consideration what things really "cost" in terms of time, money, and health.

    I try to make meals at home as much as possible, but the occasional huge freakin' steak from a restaurant is always nice. Razz

    Wow, an eye-opener and well done. One thing that bothers us is that the portion sizes in restaurants are getting so big these days that sometimes you can't finish them - so you have to split an entree or take some of it home ( which is pretty inconvenient if you're not going straight home). Restaurant business around here is down and many places are offering 2-for-1 meals on a slow week day every week. I guess if you'd like to go out once in a while that's good for your budget, if not your diet or health. Confused

      In my area, restaurant portion sizes get smaller and smaller... So when I get home I feel even more hungrier .. LOL HouTex, you are lucky in that regard...

    Sometimes, when it is just two people, it actually is more cost effective to eat out. To buy all the ingredients for some dishes and then have left overs (after some of which have been frozen for another dinner) that will just be thrown away, going out to eat does have advantages.
