Do you cook every night?

do you make things from scratch or usually prepared meals (like in a box or frozen)? Do you cook breakfast lunch AND dinner? I just usually do lunch and dinner..

  • My husband and I both work full time but we do cook every meal. Once in a while, I go to lunch with some girls from work but dinner is almost always cooked at home. Most nights, I cook from scratch but sometimes, I feel lazy and make something like a frozen lasagna. Our son is a high energy toddler so going out to eat is a challenge. Once a month, we do order pizza. On weekends, I cook all three meals also.

  • sometimes I make them all, sometimes not.
    I am more likely to cook breakfast than lunch. well, I make my own lunch- but the kids are a bit older and make their own lunch, too, often.

    Dinners- I cook 4-5 nights a week I guess. sometimes all homemade from scratch, sometimes organizing left overs, LOL

    I cooked a lot more when the kids were younger- now they cook/make meals, too.

  • Sometimes. With the exception of my 7 year old, my younger too are so picky. I try to come up with recipes and dishes they will enjoy, but am limited to penne with ragu and meat sauce, shake n bake chicken nuggets with added panko bread crumbs to the coating, breakfast for dinner, tacos, barbecued pork chops/chicken and roast. It's hard to want to cook when I know that they won't eat and I am left cleaning it. But I do..I will order a pizza 2 or 3 times a month and sometimes..gasp..I give them a kid's cuisine and I will just have a sandwich.

  • I don't fix breakfast. My husband prefers cereal, so he fixes his own. I eat a dish of yogurt. For lunch I have leftovers and he takes a piece of fruit and a container of yogurt to work. I do prepare supper. I cook one night and have leftovers the next night or two.

  • I make breakfast for myself. I prep lunch for 2 or 3 days (salads, tuna sandwiches), and I make dinner for one or two nights. If hubby is taking lunch he usually makes his own sandwiches or takes leftovers. And I'm a SAHM with a baby that doesn't eat food yet.

  • WE cook 3-4 nights a week. Not all from scratch. It just depends on how much energy I have. I close at a retail establishment so I am closing 3-4 nights a week and those are the fend for your self nights b/c I am not cooking at 10 p.m. when I get home.

  • I always cook from scratch. I make breakfast for the kids and my parents every morning, I make lunch for the kids (although it's usually sandwiches, not much cooking there) and I make dinner five nights a week. My husband cooks on Monday nights and on Saturday afternoons I take the kids to the little tiny burger place here in town.
