Part of the motivation behind this website, and specifically "What's for dinner?" is to get an idea of how an "average family" eats and prepares meals. How many times is dinner cooked at home, how many times is dinner eaten out or brought (bought) in, etc. I did an analysis of all of the March "What's for dinner?" posts and it breaks down like this:
• Dinner prepared at home - 21 days
• Dinner out (at restaurant) - 3 days
• Dinner in (picked up) - 5 days
• Dinner at someone else's house - 1 day
• Leftover night ("pick up sticks") - 1 day
Now I'm not really suggesting that my family is the definition of "average", but I bet that many other families would have a similar breakdown. I'm actually fairly impressed with myself that dinner was cooked at home as often as it was - comes down to about 2 out of 3 meals prepared and served at our house.
How do you compare?
