- Meals with family/friends
- Job interview/appointment/etc. that necessitates being away from home at meal time
- Travel (if I didn't bring food)
- Any other reason that has me away from home at meal time and I am without snacks (like traffic or an errand that takes longer than expected) - but only if I can't wait to eat till I get home!
If I had not gotten to this point though, I know something that would put the kibosh on dining out. It might work for you. Just go to the Consumerist and read the recent story titled: "Whole Chicken Breast" Actually Chicken Part Composite and then throw up in your mouth a little bit and vow to never dine out again.
