    vreihen: when I read your post, I had an urge to support the Aussie culture - but then I realized that I've never heard of "outback Steakhouse". Had to check with Mr Google - it's not an Aussie restaurant, it's an Aussie themed restaurant. Outback Steakhouse menu down here looks more like a "yanky" restaurant - not sure why a "bloomin onion" is called a "true Outback original". Ain't any onion's in the outback and the native bush-onions are nothing like the picture on the restaurant menu!!

    Which brings me to the real point of my reply - how often would you say that the average American has a meal that isn't cooked in their home kitchens?

    YouTube has several videos of Australian natives visiting these restaurants to laugh at them. Heck, they don't even have the ingredients to make a pie floater in their kitchens! My favorite corny menu item name is the "chocolate thunder from down under," which they market as a dessert item but is also something that comes for free with their dinners about an hour after walking out of their door when your colon purges.

    Obligatory VCDS hat at Outback Restaurant picture:

    What's a kitchen? The dinner bell at most American houses is connected to the pushbutton outside their front door. Ding, dong. Kids, pizza's here!!!!!

    As Outback Steakhouse's motto goes, "No rules, just coronary artery disease" (or something like that).....

    I thought the Scots had unhealthy food sorted with deep-fried battered Mars bars and battered pizza.

    I'm not sure even they had thought of deep-frying green veg (although if they did, they'd batter it first )

    around here, generally it seems like a very high average for eating out and low average cooked at home.

    I know personally, we eat out the majority of the time. Something cooked at home (besides maybe cereal) probably 2-10 meals a month.

    Yeah, the grocery over restaurant price ratio here is crazy high compared to, say, France.

    Outback used to sell "bushmen 'shrooms" that were batter-fried, and it is not odd to see battered cauliflower on American menus from time to time. (I used to have a summer job making fried cauliflower and mushrooms at a fair concession stand when I was in high school.) Deep fried pickle chips are the current appetizer rage in the chain restaurants. A county fair staple is deep-fried Oreo cookies, with a footnote that I have never had one.

    The most unique thing that I've seen recently was at a local restaurant specializing in Louisiana/cajun food. They breaded BBQ ribs and put them into the fryer. Salt and artery issues aside, they were the most moist ribs that I have ever eaten. The gumbo was also good. Yet we go back to Outback to cleanse our colons every week.....
