  • This is interesting. When I first started to answer, I was only thinking dinner. Well, I cook oatmeal and fruit for breakfast. I make soup and sandwiches or a salad for lunch. Are we counting these at meals. Food preperation is major. When it is just adults it can be when you feel like it. But when it involves preschoolers, it is an ongoing thinking, shopping, preparing and cleanup.

    Always breakfast 7
    Lunch 5 (we eat lunch out 2 days a week)
    Dinner 5-6 (Eat at a friends one day a week and left-overs another day)

    Total about 17 times a week. I need a full time cook.

  • When the kids were still at home, I cooked 7 days a week. Or DH would cook--he was a good cook. We would occasionally go out for pizza on a Friday night but not very often. I felt it was my job to cook to make sure our family ate healthy meals and to save money.

  • I try to make it a point to cook on all school nights... The older I get the pickier I get, eating out is just yuck anymore, it's so hard to find good restaurant food around here...

  • Most nights. We've averaged a night out like maybe once a week lately...
