May 15 – Dining In or Out?

How often do you eat a meal from a restaurant? How do you decide when to cook or when to eat out?

We don’t usually eat out that often – instead we prefer to cook at home… well, Hulk prefers to cook at home. *lol* Most of the time when we do eat out, it’s usually take-away – something like mexican or burgers or sushi. Every now and then we’ll have McDonalds, and when we go out on a ‘man date’ we’ll go to a proper restaurant.

Ideally we like to have a man date once or twice a month, although that hasn’t even been happening because we’ve been so busy with other plans. When we do go out, we almost always go to our favourite place in the city which is a sushi-train. It’s always hard to try and get a table there, but it’s always worth it, and if we go there when we’re hungry, we do a lot of damage in terms of how much food we eat!!

The last time we went out on a  man-date, we couldn’t get into our sushi train place, so we tried another place that we’d always wanted to go to… a chinese buffet place. I think that it’s now our new favourite place, simply for the seafood and dessert buffets. Simply amazing. It’s bait more expensive, but completely worth every penny!

Daily Prompt – Saturday Night

S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y NIGHT! What’s your favorite way to spend Saturday night?

Given that Hulk and I both work two jobs, Friday night is the only night that we don’t work, so that’s usually either our night at home so we can veg-out, or we’ll have a low-key date night and head off to the movies.

Seeing as how Hulk works on Sunday morning, it makes it a bit harder for us to do anything on a Saturday night, however in saying that, the last couple of weeks have seen us going out with a couple of friends to a certain nightclub on a Saturday night to see some international performers… that then turns into our friends coming back to our place for ice-cream and / or nacho’s and a very, very late night. Then on Sunday morning, we have a big breakfast for the four of us, and Sunday becomes a bit of a write-off.

Sometimes we’ll have a proper date night, where we’ll get a little bit dressed up, and head to our favourite sushi place in the city, and then go and see a show somewhere in the city, and that’s always something nice for us to do, but because we’re a couple of nanna’s, all we really want to do is just get home, put on our PJ’s and have a cuppa.

Sometimes all I want to do on saturday night is just curl up on the couch in my pyjamas and play video games. I think if I was to find myself being single, then that’s probably what I would be spending my time doing… isolated and completely engrossed in one of my PS3 games like Tomb Raider or The Last Of Us.
