Cost of Dinning out verses Dinning In

Cost of Dinning out $50.00 verses Dinning In $6.00

Am I the only one who loves to eat out?  Someone else cooks it, cleans up, what more can you ask for?  But the down side is, it cost a lot to eat out, with a family of five  any sit down restaurant will cost my family around $50 (5 meals, drinks, tip) .  That being said, we do not get to eat out very often, maybe once a month.  
The photo above is a meal I made for my family with my Albertsons shopping trip last week.  I took advantage of what they had on sale rice, chicken, lettuce, apples and what I had in my food storage. I then made  a nice meal.  I was able to feed my family of 5 for about $6.00.  
Rice a Roni $1
lettuce .88 cents
Salad toppings $1.00
Apple for salad .33 cents
Honey mustard dipping sauce .25 cents 
3 chicken breasts $2.50
The whole meal took about 45 mins to cook start to finish.   By simply putting it on a nice plate, it makes the meal seem a little more special.  So when your family budget is a little tight make the night special and THRIFTY by dinning in.
