Am I a lazy SAHM

I don't really like to waste time cooking, so I make frozen pizzas and steamed veggies for supper, BLT's and a salad, Mac n Cheese and fruit, just a few examples. I always have a fruit or vegtable and I do cook a couple "real" meals a week. How about you? Or am I alone?

  • i like cooking healthy meanls i have a big family so its easier and cheaper for me to cook plus i know what i put in my food....
    I do have a suggestion for you
    sometimes when i dont feel like cooking or just want an easier evening for myself ill put something on like a roast the night before hand and make some cornbread or rice or something then u have ur meat and veggies and a lil extra and its way easy and fast clean up.

    baking is also something i do a lot its healthy and i put the temp on a low setting let it cook all day and its always really good like chicken rice and cheese with some brocolli in it cooked in the oven all day with cream of chicken and chicken broth mixed in is awsome and just go by some rolls or somethng to go with it

    one thing u can do is go to racheal rays
    she has tons of meals to cook for 30 mins most are really healthy and come out very tasty.

  • If we're not going out to eat, we cook. We don't eat meals out of boxes either. I like to feed my kid's good healthy food, that's just me though.

  • We share in the cooking area. Mostly hubby does it though. He likes to try new things, so I let him.

  • We heat up frozen pizza on friday. The rest of the week I cook. I'm a SAHM but also do home daycare so when I cook supper, I make enough t reheat for the daycare childrens lunch the next day. That way we get 2 homecooked meals for one :)

  • What do you mean, what do I do Anon? I clean, I bring my children back and forth from activities, I go on playdates so my children can interact with other children, I am active in their school and the activities in the school, we have family time. I just don't like to waste time on cooking, food is really not that important in our life-we eat because we have to stay alive, not because it's a fun event. Why do you ask? What do you do?
