Eating Out

Posted on: January 12, 2010


One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to work hard at eating out less. In fact if I had my way we would rarely eat out. I don’t have anything against restaurants. It’s just that while they are convenient they host a whole other set of problems that I have to deal with.

One of the main problems with eating out is that it is difficult to get the same quality of family style dinner that I enjoy at home. The noise level is usually loud and we don’t engage in the same family atmosphere as home. The kids behavior seems to be worse in restaurants and they lose all sense of responsibility such as setting the table, clearing the table, doing the dishes. At a restaurant the hired help does all that for them and they don’t have to life a finger.

The second thing I find irritating about restaurants is that it seems that so much food goes uneaten and the quality of food isn’t the same as I can make at home. The restaurants try to offer a variety but I find it’s usually the same ole same ole when it comes to kids.

The third thing is the expense. Regardless of the reports I constantly hear about soaring food prices, I remain steadfast in my opinion that it is cheaper to eat at home. If you don’t believe me go to this blog and you will see proof for yourself.

So that is my goal for this year…to eat out less and stay in more.
