    We’ve done a ton of takeout. I just don’t have the patience to cook every single meal every single day. Last night we got Chili’s. We’ve also gotten Outback, Bojangles, picked up lunch from McDonald’s a couple of times, gotten dinner from several local places. DH has gone to get the food and he says there are always a fair number of cars waiting. Like someone mentioned above, he says he’s more comfortable picking up then getting delivery.

    We're getting take out about twice a week. Good to break up the drudge of home cooking and another way to support local businesses. We're eating at home for 3 meals a day, so it's a nice luxury.

    We do about once a week. Social distancing could go on for months and this has to stay a tolerable situation for us all. Take-out is something my my whole family enjoys. We are very careful about it.

    So bummed. This weekís takeout was sub-par. Not worth the expense or hassle. Itís usually much better.

    We have not yet. Iím totally sick of cooking every damn meal. We are trying to decide if itís worth the risk. It doesnít sound like transmission through food is a risk at all, but more so packing or contact with restaurant workers. Iím guessing we will break down and do so at some point. We typically eat our or take in twice a week. So 3+ weeks of me cooking is a long time. Last restaurant experience was on my birthday on March 11. (I have lost a few pounds...intermittent fasting for a month did nothing, but being quarantined at home...results.)

    Absolutely not. Three of the four people in my home have preexisting conditions. The only thing we might order would be pizza that is prepared in the store and you cook yourself, but my pizza dough is better. Until I run our of flour, nope.

    We've only done one pizza so far. It helps that DH cooks a lot, but we're getting very tired of making every meal, especially when I'm used to the kids eating hot lunch at school most days. I'd love to order take-out once a week to mix things up, but don't want to risk it.

    Right before the lockdown happened, I went to pick up fresh pizza pies from our local small pizzeria, and picked up their homemade frozen pies. That saved us twice thus far in 3 weeks of lockdown.

    Last week was first time we ordered takeout; we only order where meals are already paid online or over the phone, so no exchange of cc is happening. Curbside pickups too.

    More restaurants have joined in the curbside or texting each customer so only one go in store to get their orders. Will do this weekend. We usually do take outs 1-2x a week and eat out 1x a week, so what weíre doing is a cutback already for us, and Iím so busy to cook more meals as it is. I figure Iím also helping to support local restaurants survive too.
