Once upon a time, long a ago, in a land, far, far, away! I used to have a take away on a Friday night and we used to go for a ‘couple’ in the pub over the road, whilst we waited for our order. I haven’t had a take away since 2007! I sometimes miss them, but then I get the wok out and get dinner ready in less time than it would take to walk there and back! We’re still drinking the Christmas box of wine we were given as a gift and as we only drink one glass each a week, it’ll be there a while yet. If you had just one bottle of wine a week and shared one Chinese take away between you a week (One bottle of Merlot £5 + Chicken in black bean sauce £4.80 and special fried rice £4.40) then you would actually spend £743.60 a year…………on take aways and wine! Some times, just adding up what it costs, is enough to do it yourself and have it with a glass of orange barley water. P.S….My supper blow out was 10 points!
