Most we would do is get Uber Eats from a nice place for Friday evening when the older kids visit grandma and the toddler is in bed.

Haven't gone out to a restaurant in ages, but mostly due to the toddler being a baby up to now :)

When I used go to the office, at least 3-4 times a week. I used to mostly use the office cafeteria or take a walk to the mall. I eventually got sick of the office cafeteria menu which indicates how often I went.

I've hardly been over the past 8 months since I started working from home. I am living with my family again so my Mum cooks. It has probably saved me a lot of money.

It can be very very tempting. It is very convenient (easier to dispose of materials and gives you easy, tasty food). But unless you are going to Kara Nicha's, it is going to add up if you do it all the time and you will realize that this is money which you could have easily saved.

How many times a week?

Should be how many times a year.

I get asked around 14H00 what I want to eat and then the wife has it ready by the time I get home 16H30. Hardly ever eat take aways. Had Nando's the other day and what a waste of effort that was.

Really only eat out for seafood.

I make breakfasts over the weekend.

Hope you are paying your mum to stay there? AND helping with the dishes.

Hardly ever lately. Main reason is price, becoming costly, and the local take away's have been getting steadily worse quality wise, talking franchised take away places.

Make my own versions at home, cheaper, tastier and the kids prefer it.

Literally the only thing I like at MCD's now is the fries, if they are fresh and crispy, but they still are fark expensive.

Conservative Indian people are different (though it may be very conservative parents in general), they literally force you to stay at home. It's hard to explain but I don't have much of a choice unless I get married (not going to happen) or get a job in another city.

I don't help out with the dishes but I do contribute to the household bills where I can.

Used to be a once a week kind of thing in general, but have cut that down significantly...

Largely due to cost and the quality of what you get for that money these days.

I had takeaways exactly three times this year, but otherwise about once or twice monthly with sushi or Asian being the exception. Everything else like burgers, pizza, etc. is hardly on my takeaway menu.

We get the kids McDs once or twice a week after school, and the occasional Chinese takeaway when I want a break from cooking.

What chinese do you get?

I haven't had really (awesome) good chinese since hong kong restaurant left brooklyn mall. Most seems to be a mishmash of stir frying and being rather oily. I think the best option close me is house of asia. idk.
