    Do You Ever Eat Out and Wish You Hadn't Bothered?

    Do You Ever Eat Out and Wish You Hadn't Bothered? 2nd Feb 07 at 10:50 AM
    My DH is never very keen to eat out - but then he doesn't have to do the food shopping and cooking (although, to be fair, he does many other things around the house). Anyway we ate out last night and we were all disappointed. The food was uninspiring and, in some cases, overcooked. I know we should have complained - but we didn't.

    Tonight I'm looking forward to HM lentil soup, HM pizza (trying a new recipe for the base - thanks Toxic Lemon) and salad, then HM yoghurt and fruit and, of course, a bottle of wine! I know it will all be delicious (provided I don't drink the wine before I start cooking ), made from good ingredients and costing very little. The joys and benefits of being OS.

    We go out for lunch once a week, sometimes to a carvery or somewhere more expensive. My favourite is Casa Brasil, I've never had a disappointing meal there. I don't like big plates of food so the carved meats and hot and cold buffet is ideal for me. I probably don't get my money's worth though but my son makes up for me

    I have no choice but to eat out when I'm away with work

    If i am on my own i will often have a takeaway, I love the local Indian near an office I go to. I go in have an iced drink whilst my order is prepared, then I take it back to my room. I don't enjoy sitting in a restaurant by myself.
    If I am with other people I really go out more for the company than the food, but if the food happens to be nice then that's an added bonus.
