  • I cook all day. if there are leftovers I may heat them up in the microwave. But usually I end up cooking anyway because the leftovers arent enough to feed 6 people all over again :)

  • Well, my son is only four months old, so he just has his milk, lol. My husband works in the day, and neither of us eats breakfast. Usually for lunch I make myself a salad or a soup or something. Sometimes I eat a Lean Cuisine, so I guess I use the microwave then. For dinner, we don't eat microwavable stuff for the entire meal, but maybe some of it. Tonight we had mushroom Morning Star burgers that were microwaved, but we grilled asparagus and boiled brown rice. It just depends.

  • We either eat cereal or Mickey Ds for breakfast, leftovers or PB&Js for lunch, and dinner varies. Tonight we had fried pork chops, corn on the cob and green beans with potatoes. My kids are 3 1/2, 2, and 19 days old. We do have the steamfresh Birdseye veggies a lot, they're easy, fast, not too expensive and my kids love them. I keep frozen fries and chicken fillets/nuggets on hand but they're either fried or baked. I try not to microwave, lol. I dunno why, don't ask. My hubby doesn't eat until dinner, though. He's a doofus.

  • I cook 3 meals a day. Breakfasts: omelets, oatmeal, pancakes, French toast. Lunches: sandwiches, soups, tuna patties, skillet meals. Dinners: I cook 7 nights a week.

    I have a microwave and I use it to proof bread, cook individual bowls of oatmeal, thaw some frozen items, reheat leftovers.

  • I would say its about 50/50 for me...half the time I do cook all 3 meals all day ( I babysit other kids at my house so I usually cook when they are here) and sometimes I get away with only cooking 2-3 times a day and get to toss a left over in the microwave for lunch.

  • I don't even have a microwave. Haha. I cook two meals a day. If we have dinner leftovers, those get reheated for lunch. Breakfast is cereal, except on the weekends when we do crepes or pancakes and the whole shabang.

  • Nope. I love to cook, but right now this house is always busy and I have been ill, so THANK GOD for the microwave and take-out.
