I have to confess that this question is pretty daunting in my life! It is the great debate for this wife! Michael and I are eating out constantly. Not only is this not the best thing for our figures...it's not the greatest thing for our bank account either! ....or is it? I cannot figure out if spending tons of money on groceries or eating out is more cost efficient. I know you are thinking..."of course, groceries." Well, I have a husband who is veeerrrrryyyy picky! If it were up to him we'd eat cereal every night which seems so cheap...but I cannot eat cereal for dinner every night. I'm pretty much the opposite when it comes to food. I'll eat anything and I love variety! Anyway, I sat down last night with some cookbooks and recipe cards to make a shopping list of things I can cook in the next few weeks. My list was so long...I'm sure that trip to the store would probably be $200 or more! Geez...what is the answer to this dilemma? We are really busy and we don't do leftovers well. I'm really up for suggestions. I want to cook, not just for Michael and I, but I need to be able to cook when we have a family! Eating out for 2 may be ok, but when our family gets larger, this will be a very expensive habit. I am asking for HELP! If you have simple, fast recipes that you enjoy please share!!! If you have money saving tips for grocery store adventures...please share! Hopefully I will find an answer to my question: to cook or not to cook?!
