When we eat out it's because it's been a long day and I don't feel like cooking. I have a Senior in High School, I would love for him to plan and help make a meal or two. I ask him for meal ideas but am lucky if I get one out of him. Maybe it would help you and who ever cooks at your house if you offered ideas and to help cook. I know I would be very thankful if someone in my house would do that.
So like Cassie said above give it some thought and plan ahead. It might work out good for you and your family
