Now that I am retired I only eat lunch out about once a month in a normal month (meaning not traveling or hosting visitors at home). When I was working I ate lunch out with co-workers maybe 2-3 times a week. Restaurant dinners for me nowadays average about twice a month, usually after a play or movie or a hen-session with friends. Like some others here I prefer to prepare my own simple meals at home mainly for health and portion-control reasons. I am not big on restaurant leftovers for whatever reason but happily eat leftovers that I have prepared myself.
