Home cooked, fancy restaurant or fast food?
Which do you eat most frequently? Which do you prefer?
I prefer home cooked food but once in a while we treat ourselves to takeaway or eat in a restaurant. We eat home cooked food most of the time.
I'm not a fan of fast food at all. While I prefer to eat at home (my wife is a great cook), if we do happen to eat out I want to sit down and enjoy it.
I definitely prefer to cook my own food, for the most part. I try to avoid fast food. Ordering take-out at decent restaurants is not bad, just expensive. Either way, I've never liked eating in crowded places where everybody is breathing on each other and are elbow to elbow. Don't worry, though, there are plenty of folks that still go to fast-food joints. I see them in there packed liked sardines all the time, when I drive through town.
My husband and I eat at home mostly. I love to cook and it saves a lot of money. However, we certainly enjoy eating out for a nice treat or date. Fast food is usually reserved for when we're traveling and don't want to make a long stop.
Home cooked almost always. Restaurants once or twice a week. I like to cook, but cooking and cleaning up is a lot of work. Fast food, rarely.
The best of all worlds is eating home-cooked that someone else cooked.
For convenience (and to save my purse!) I often eat home-cooked food. Whether packet rice and fresh pasta parcels bought from the local supermarket qualifies as home-cooked food is another question; all I do is heat the darned things up! I can cook very well, however, and sometimes do meals such as chilli con carne or shepherd's pie. I use the recipes that my Mum used (and still uses) when I was a child so my food now tastes just as good as hers does.
I only eat at restaurants for special occasions such as birthdays, Christmas or to celebrate a new job etc. When I do go out to get a cooked meal, I prefer going to a slightly more expensive restaurant than a pub or a bistro. It is largely true that you get what you pay for in this world!
All have their place, but you can't beat good home cooked food! I cook every night for the family. Very occasionally might have fish and chips which is very popular in England, and as we live quite close to the sea we have fish and chips when we visit the beach. My middle son is a chef, working in Michelin starred restaurants, and now and then he will treat us to a meal in whatever restaurant he is working in.
I prefer home cooked foods and fine restaurant cuisine, particularly Japanese cuisine. My favorite home cooked foods are sauteed string beans in buttered scampi sauce with a dash of garlic and steamed flounder with butter sauce. Seldom do I eat fast food, not good nor nutritious.
I love a good burger. If I do go out to a 'fast food' place, it has to be either Burger King or Dairy Queen. These two fast food places have the best tasting burgers. However saying that, I tend to want home cooked meals so that I can control the salt, sugar and chemical intake.
I eat home cooked food for the most part as I have a 4 person home and eating out all the time would get pricey. I'm not going to say I don't love the occasional greasy cheeseburger from McDonalds or a Chicken Marsala dinner from Olive Garden as a treat or when I'm out for a long outing. But there are benefits to home cooking as well the cost is less, and you can have more control over how it's spiced, sodium, fat and cholesterol content and food portion control as well as knowing what kind of clean kitchen and clean hands are touching your food. So the answer to your question is since I love to cook I mostly eat at home. Please feel free to check out my recipes and share on your FB or Twitter account.
I love cooking so home cooked. I do not have a lot of money to eat out and fast food is almost always disappointing.

I dont know what country you are in but KFC in england is just like fast food and to me, fast food is rubbish. Too much unhealthy overpowering sauces and the chicken is always coated in huge amounts of fat.Give me a plain barbecued chicken leg any day.

Do you prefer to cook your own meals or go out to eat?I enjoy cooking evening meals, but too often I hear people complain that they don't have the time to cook. They would rather spend an hour or more in a restaurant. Does that not take time? Which do you prefer - cooking or dining out - and why?

Do you eat out more than cook at home?Nothing is better than a home cooked meal, many people choose to eat out for convenience and miss that family time spent at the dinner table.

In my opinion, fast food is better than fresh food for 3 reasons. First, it's your best friend when you're hungry. You can take it anywhere and you don't have to cook it. You can warm it in 2 minutes by putting it into a microwave. Second, it's easy to buy fast food. You can buy it from...
