Cyranny’s quickie!




Would you rather cook or order out for your guests?





I am not the first blogger to start a ”Question of the day” series. I used to participate to Danny’s Let me ask you a question posts regularly, but since he has almost stopped pubishing them, I thought I’d give it a go. We’ll see if I stick to it, depending on the answers I get!

  1. Ahhh a conundrum… I guess it depends who the guest is. If its someone who’s a friend then take out every time. If it’s a really good friend or family then I’d cook. It’s the effort that makes it special.


  2. I agree with Steph (I wonder … are we related?) but I try to make everyone feel special and I do enjoy cooking. Sometimes it is a triumph, but sometimes a disaster. I can, at the very least, make sure the wine is decent.


  3. Once upon a time I’d choose ‘cook’ every time. Alas, my mad skills in the kitchen have turned into mediocre at best skills due to atrophy. I’m single and live alone. There’s no more humongous meals being prepared. Hubby liked himself some food. But ordering out (a decent meal) can be spendy. So I’ll toss a coin and decide when and if someone shows up wanting to be fed!

  4. I am in the same situation as Mel. But I like to cook, it’s just not feasible now. Everything is too high to do it comfortably. If I can snatch a grandkid,it’s easier. Today delivery is so expensive it’s ridiculous. Today I’m making banana bread, easy.😂


  5. If the guests are coming to my house we ( my husband and I both cook) will cook. We would not order in. If we do not have time then we will invite friends to have dinner out with us at a restaurant.


  6. 95% of the time I would cook…but I am not against take-away food and if we have have had a full day of hiking or sightseeing and I am shattered…then there are a wonderful array of restaurants that do take-away on out local high street. I bought a Thai take-away for Goldfinch and me …and another time I went to the Indian when a group turned up unexpectedly and my cupboards were bare.
