  • Depends on what I'm cooking. Sometimes I start prepping the day before, sometimes I start at 9 in the morning, sometimes I start at 4. We try to eat at 5 every night, so waiting til the last minute isn't something for me.

  • I try to start @ 5 so we can eat @ 6,, but sometimes I don't get started till 6 and then we eat @...you guessed it : 7 :-)

    Every now and again I cook in a slowcooker, and then I start 'round 9 or 10 - let it sit all day, and then cook the sides 'round 5, so we can eat @ 6.

  • We're a 4+ meals a day family. We have fruits, salads, crackers with cheese, etc around 4ish-- kind of like tea time. Dinner is later between 8 and 10 depending on when DH gets home from his evening commitments.

  • Depends on what I am making and how much preparation it entails. We eat at 5:00 pm everyday, so I plan my meals to be ready at that time.

  • It depends. Mondays and Wednesdays we eat much later, around 730 or 8, because the boys have soccer practice we have to be at with them until 6:30 PM and we don't do convenience or processed foods. Other nights we try to eat by 6PM.
