1. When you go out with friends, what is your favorite drink (alcoholic or non).

2. How often do you go out socially?

3. Have you changed your eating habit in the last year or two?

<<Wow, 2-3 times a week out to dinner? I thought you cooked more at home after seeing your menu's. That sounds nice to not have to cook that much :)>>

No.  I do.  I don't know how a false statement can sound nice, but ymmv of course.  :)

Nice that you can go out for dinner 2-3 times a week with friends and not have to cook, just relaxing with your dh and friends. Sounds nice to me :)

1. Tomato juice or pineapple juice.  But I usually just get water, diet coke.

2. A weekly tennis group, that gets more active in the summer (mixers, round robins).  One bestie and I meet each week for coffee at our houses.  I go to a women's club, book club and kind of a quilting bee once a month, each; these meet less during the summer.

3. Not really.

Diet Coke or a dry white, depends on time of day and company.

2. How often do you go out socially?

We entertain quite often in our home in summer, 5 significant parties we host and another 5 we attend in our town. Probably only get out once a month other times of the year. Since I work from home, I usually meet up for coffee every day with the regulars for at the local coffee shop for 30 min break. DH and I play cards every week with friends (Hi Lo Jack and we're kicking it this year!)

3. Have you changed your eating habit in the last year or two?

Trying to eat less processed food.

No, no and no.  Strike three, your out.  Your fiction is funny though.   :)

Question for the group...

When one goes out socially, does that automatically equal going out to dinner for you?  For me going out socially can mean a wide variety of things; movies, play, theatre, drinks, professional sporting events, coffee at someone's house/starbucks, particpating with friends in a sporting event and so on...the list is really endless, I don't automatically think of food, do you?

Oh my bad, dinner, events and lunch. 2-3 times a week on average. Very nice. You are a busy bee with work (I wouldn't consider lunch with co-workers a social thing but maybe because I can easily eat with them every day in or out of work), kids sports, cooking nice dinners. Sounds like a full plate :)

You do realize, don't you, that a social meal can be breakfast or lunch too.  In fact, PKA specifically mentioned lunches as a potential social meal.  2-3 meals out of 21 still leaves a lot of room for cooking.

Nope. We go out to bars, restaurants, movies, professional sports events, playing pool, volunteering at church, dinner parties at someone's home, game night at someone's home, dessert parties at someone's home, playing cards, BBQ's, pig roasts, birthdays, holidays (with friends and not family), parties (jewelry, houseware, passion parties), shopping, vacations. Most of the things we go to HAS food though as that is how our circle of friends are. Always food and drinks involved in some kind of way lol

Yes, you misread my comments.  I also didn't consider lunch with my co-workers or kid sports as I clearly stated in an earlier post as well.   At this point, since you have misread so much, you might want to re-read a bit in order to avoid further mistakes on your part?

But yes, I am quite blessed with friends and family.
