Friday Fives

1. Do you mostly prepare your meals at home or do you eat out more?
I have gotten into the habit of cooking at home – saving money and far, far healthier. I eat out on weekends quite a bit.

2. Is there a time of day when you are more likely to buy food already prepared?
Weekends at brunch.

3. What is your average weekly grocery bill (for how many people)? What is your total restaurant/fast food bill for an average week?
About $150.00 or so a month for me, but I haven’t really budgeted it out.

4. What is your favorite meal to prepare at home?
I have taken up crafting some yummy artisan pizzas based on Jim Lahey’s “My Pizza” cookbook. It is a slow ferment no-knead dough and the trick is cooking it under the broiler in a preheated 500 degree oven. Quite delicious.

5. What is your favorite meal to order in a restaurant?
Lox and bagels with a smear of cream cheese.

  1. 1. It’s a good mix of both. I generally prepare breakfast and lunch, and then dinner is 50/50 mix of home and out.

    2. When it’s too hot to cook.

    3. I could easily calculate this figure, but because I don’t want to be appalled I won’t (I tend to spend a fortune on both).

    4. Pasta dishes are my new passion. There’s so much technique to master and I feel I’m slowly getting better at all of it.

    5. I tend to order things I can’t make well for myself. Thus scallops and burgers both come to mind.
