Make A Restaurant Meal At Home

by Pam on December 17, 2010

When you want to treat yourself and your family but do not want to spend the money to eat out all the time, a great way to enjoy a meal without spending a lot of money is to make a special restaurant-like meal at home.

One that works great at our home is replicating an all -you -can eat buffet where you get to make your own stir-fry.  We use our trusty Toastmaster griddle and I slice up all sorts of veggies such as onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, etc.  I then slice beef very thinly and sometimes I also slice up chicken breasts.

Then, we mix and match the ingredients to make multiple stir-fries at the table as we eat.  This way we get to eat a wide variety of different dishes with different flavors, and it’s easy to clean up.

Whenever we do this, I feel just as satisfied as if we’ve eaten out, and I often enjoy the taste just as much, if not more.  It’s fun to get creative when it comes to our menu.  All too often I find myself making the same things over and over again because they are familiar.  I never have been one for following recipes, so it’s great when we mix things up a little.

Also, if you find yourself craving an Egg McMuffin at McDonald’s, I would recommend buying English muffins at a grocery store and making your own.  Just pop the muffin in the toaster and then fry and egg and some bacon or ham.  Melt some cheese over top and I can guarantee it will taste one hundred times better than any breakfast sandwich you can buy at McDonald’s!

Eating out a lot can get really expensive, so why not try your own special experiment and see how your family likes it?
