Im currently living out of a hotel during the week, so I eat out almost every meal, and I have gained the 50lbs to show for it. I try to keep my meals under $15 with tax and tip. So Ill eat for $10, tip $5, and get great service and treatment while Im there.

Then again, Im a VIP and friends with most of the staff who work at my local restaurant. :p

Get you a small crock pot and an electric skillet. That's what I did when I was working out of town on a 6 week stretch a few years back.

This is what a lot of people tell me. I just need to find time to look at some recipe books. The sad part is we actually own 2-3 crock pot cook books, including one that is for 5-6 ingredients...

Sometimes frozen dinners from a store like Trader Joe's help.
It's not the frozen TV dinners from 20 years ago and also not a $20 meal every time.
