Home cooked meals are always the best options when:
a) you’re sick
b) you’re broke
c) you don’t know what else to eat
d) you hate being seen eating alone in public
But I usually cook at home is more of because I want to cook rather than I need to cook.. Apart from saving a bit from not eating out (plus it’s healthier to cook at home), I get to also try different ways of cooking things and pairing them up with different stuffs..
