Writing out a menu has helped us curb our going out to eat spending! WE still enjoy going out to eat, and frankly for two ppl, it's not that expensive. HOWEVER, when I plan meals ahead of time I have them to look forward to all week, all day and am more ready to prepare it when I get home from work.
Jacob usually beats me home by about 30 minutes, and I can ask him to start the rice and or turn off the crock -pot , etc...
When we do eat out we have our favorites!!!
OUr TOp three--
LongHorn Steakhouse!!! (for the STEAK)
Bahama Breeze (for the atmosphere)
CHeddars (for the queso)
What are your family favorites?!?! How often do you go out?!
OH we also enjoy wraps from tropical smoothie cafe :) mmmmmm.......
