Eating Out - vs Cooking at Home

Yesterday we were debating about eating out
and cooking at home after viewing Fox 12 News
and how a deputy is suing Burger King over a
22 yo male employee who spit in his burger.
This deputy had a bad feeling about his burger
and decided to check his burger after these two
employees were acting funny toward him. He
did a DNA testing on the human spit and it linked
back to this 22 yo employee..
Check out the video:

We rarely go to restaurants and eat out. Once
 in a while we'll go to treat the kids and avoid
cooking for a day. But after watching this
horrible incident. I am glad that we cook our
meals at home. Dh mostly eats out with his
workers after a hard day pouring concrete.

Which usually is a break for me. Meaning
I don't have to make two different dinners
for us and separately for him, he loves his
polynesian meals while we choose hamburger
helper, or sandwiches on some nights.

Where do you stand on eating out versus
cooking at home?

lol..yes, I've been grossed out for days and can't even bring myself to look at the Burger King sign when I pass it on the street when driving. Can you say, traumatized?

Ewww! I hope it doesn't happen all the time, though.

My husband and I eat out once a week... on our date nights. :)

That is so gross! It's convenient, but like you said, you just never know what kind of people are cooking your food. Nothing beats a home cooked meal!

Our household use to be like yours -- hubby had to have his poly meal, while we could eat a sandwich for dinner and be fine. But you know, that's changed now since he's changed his diet.

As my kids would say, EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW, YUCK! After reading your post and then viewing the video and seeing the photo of the burger, OMG, am so GROSSED OUT! I need to go get something sweet to eat to get that out of my head, now that makes me think twice about eating out especially since my mother loves to treat my kids all the time to eat out, thats so gross!

Maopa, my hubby is the same way with POLY MEAL as a MUST. He just recently got use to eating rice instead of manioke, talo, and all that stuff. He doesn't like it when I prepare the hamburger helper for dinner, he says thats for the kids, and it doesn't fill him up...HOI! LOL. So I would always prepare dinner according to what he wants or likes, and sometimes the kids will eat it or not, hehehe. But I so agree with homecooked meals are way better! Thanks for sharing this!

I worked for Burger King for 5 years in the late 80o's/early 90's and you would be surprised how often that happens!

Happy Friday Follow right back at you:-)
