I cook Monday through Friday. My husband brings leftovers to work for lunch, therefore I cook five times during the week. I need a break over the weekend, so we order out Friday and Saturday. On Sunday I cook again so that my husband has leftovers for lunch. I don't know if it's just ms but we are a family of 4 with two toddlers, I find that on average I'm spending ably $20- $30 on dinner meals when I cook them on my own. Ofcourse the ingredients are always left over which would save me on the cost for the same meal if I decide to make it again. Ln the otherhand takeout from a grill restaurant for example is healthy, we get a full rotisiree chicken, veges, rice and naan for $15. Thai specials are $15 for two dishes. I'm wondering what's cheaper?
