How much of your day do you spend in the kitchen?

Every morning I get the kids ready for school, take them to the bus, and then spend the rest of my day in the kitchen (or it feels that way!).

I make breakfast for my youngest when I get home, then for my SO, then breakfast #2 for my youngest... THEN he has a snack, then lunch around 1. My older 2 get home by 2:40 and they all need a snack. By 4 it is time to prep supper, but my SO usually gets in late so I have to get his ready, then put his lunch up for the next day.

I think I spend more time in the kitchen then any other room of the house!

  • Cook up a bunch of stuff and freeze it. Put it in individual meal sizes. Then when someone is hungry, microwave and call it done!

  • I take probably about 15 min to make breakfast and then I clean it up (5 min). Maybe 5 min to make lunch, then clean that up and 20-35 min to make dinner and then clean that up. Sometimes I make cookies or something, but not that often.

  • I spend all day in the kitchen it seems. I was just discussing it with DH last night too! I make a warm breakfast every day, cook lunch since DH comes home to eat and then I cook dinner. All day every day I am in that kitchen, unless I get wrapped up in a good book and tell them all to figure out something on their own for once. lol

  • Some days very little, some days quite a lot! I have a very small kitchen though, with not a lot of counter space, so some days I do a lot of my prep work, or I use my crock pot or roaster or other bigger things like that in another room (usually the dining area) but I still consider myself "in the kitchen" since I'm doing kitchen-y stuff!

  • I spend about 20 mins in the morning, 20 mins in afternoon (if I am having lunch at home) and maybe 35-45 mins in the evening doing dinner.
