Question ~ How often do you cook? ~

How many nights a week do you cook dinner at home? It's multiple choice.

I try too cook at least 5 nights a week. If I'm having one of those days we will usually have a sandwich or pop in a frozen pizza. I love to eat out, but it's really so expensive and I feel like at home I can watch my portion control more and eat a bit healthier.

It kind of depends on what we are defining as "cooking."
I cook almost every night, but a lot of it is easy convenient stuff- not traditional home cooked meals.

I chose 4 nights/wk, which is prob about right (sometimes a little more or less), but the other 3 nights we are usually eating leftovers from the other meals I cooked.

I try to cook 5 nights a week. When it's soccer/play/gymnastics/dance/etc. season, it's harder. But I still try. And weekends we like to go out to eat. (Friday and Saturday)

I got lucky b/c my DH does the VAST majority of cooking in our house. (For a couple reasons - 1. He enjoys it, 2. He gets home before DS & I do, 3. I don't have enough patience to cook "fancy" meals like he does. .... but I will cook on occassion. (Though it's typicallly easy-to-make stuff.)

I'm the type to burn boiling water so it's probably safer for him to be the cook in our house.

Out of a given month I will cook every night but one or two. During summer- I fix breakfast, lunch and dinner 99% of the days too. I am always in the kitchen.

We try to cook in at least 6 times a week and eat out once although depending on sheer chaos that might be a little different each week. There are weeks we don't go out at all, and there are weeks we bring stuff in 4 times. But average I'd say we cook in this house 6 times a week.

Oh, I am so a convenience-meal type. I don't mean everything has to be from scratch. But I don't mean that every meal is from a box or a bag, either.
