Hi @Funtimes -
I was an avid home cook for years and loved it. But kids are older and doing their own thing...Yay. One has a girl who likes to cook, one is a chef himself and the other became a vegetarian last year. I do cook some good vegetarian meals. But mostly Dad & I are enjoying the restaurant scene, food talking and not doing dishes! Have 'em young and get 'em out while you can still enjoy life. Who said that?
One unexpected bonus - I have lost weight not having all that food in the house . But it's definitely more expensive.
To make a long story short , We (meaning I) cook a couple times a week, eat some good take-out a couple times and dine out a couple times a week... and of course, there's sandwich night.
That was a great question btw. You made me think about our change in lifestyle.
