I am guessing we all have once or twice and it isn't fun, but it can come from food you get at the grocery store as well, especially meat and poultry. Plus a lot of what we think is food poisoning is really stomach flu, and visa versa. But if you never, never in out only you would know for sure which it was. I just can't imagine never eating out. I can imaging never ordering food delivered.

I've never had food poisoning, knock on wood.

But I do order out more often now. Used to love to cook but now it's just me and there doesn't seem to be any point in getting creative.

Not that I NEVER cook for myself, I do, but I'd say I get takeout just as often as I cook for myself, and when I cook for myself, it's just a chore that has to be done so I can eat. Then I've got pots and dishes to wash, which is another chore. With takeout, I can get a nice meal that would require two or three pots and pans and an hour or more of my time if I cooked it for myself, and that seems like such a waste for me to eat alone.

I just don't enjoy cooking if I'm not cooking for someone else.

My husband and I order out 2-3 times a months. Sometimes our schedules are really busy or one of the other of us is out of town on business and it becomes much more convenient.

Same here....I still like to cook but not to the extent when I was married. Usually I pick up something, a sandwich or salad at least, when I'm shopping. Cleanup is what I love to avoid!

Maybe a few times a year we'll order a Marcos pizza online and pick it up. Don't really do it for other stuff because we just don't do take-out very often. We have plenty of time and if we're ordering out, I prefer to eat out.

Almost every Friday night without fail. One pizza driver pulls up in to our drive way, with a HOT, thin crust medium size with four toppings on it . YUMM..

At least once a week. I'll order Panera for breakfast on my phone and take it back to the office.

Maybe about once a month. Its either Chinese or pizza, and very occasionally, like twice a year, we order for pickup from a restaurant.

We just ordered food from Cafe Rio just now!

Any other comments about it?

Never for me, the same exact reason I do not order groceries on line
