I could really go for dinner at my favorite restaurant tonight. A tasty meal without the mess is sounding pretty good to this Mom. But it's not going to happen--not tonight, anyway. Why? Because I have plans to eat out this weekend, and I refuse to exceed my once-a-week limit.
Hardcore? Perhaps, but I've found that eating out once a week (or less) works for my family. It allows us to enjoy an occasional restaurant meal without messing with our budget or our wasitlines. . . but that's just what works for us. How do you incorporate eating out into your budget and life? Weigh in with our poll!
