  • Dinners are always a mix of homemade and box

  • A typical weekend - breakfast will be like weekdays, cinnamon rolls or cereal or whatever the kids want - cereal is boxed of course, bread for toast is bought, cinnamon rolls or muffins are scratch, oatmeal is the real stuff (not instant).

    Dinners - usually homemade, but usually leftovers from other meals - which were homemade. Unless the kids aren't terribly hungry, then they like crackers & cheese and some fruit, or something like that - but 80% of the time it's leftovers. That's Saturday. Sundays we almost always eat dinner with the ILs, and it's all homemade.

    Suppers - Saturday - leftovers or fresh homemade. Sundays - either pancakes from scratch or frozen pizza, or leftovers of homemade meals from earlier in the week.

    So yeah, at least 75% of our weekend meals are still homemade/scratch. Same as during the week. I use very little convenience food, frozen pizza is about the extent of it!

  • Typical weekend- Breakfast- instant oatmeal or cereal (from a box) w/toast and fruit or if my husband gets up he makes eggs and toast
    Saturday lunch-Leftovers or soup (so either reheated or soup from a can)
    Saturday Dinner- Depends what we did for Friday dinner, if we ordered in, then I cook (semi-homemade)

    Sunday always cereal or oatmeal before church
    Sunday Lunch- grilled cheese or something equally as easy
    Sunday Dinner- home made,

    I usually do semi homemade stuff. I don't really like being in the kitchen, so I try the easiest route w/o using a complete box.
    I don't make my own spaghetti sauce or anything easy like that that comes in a jar.

  • this weekend, all from scratch; mostly from the freezer

    Answer by rkoloms at 7:19 PM on Jan. 2, 2011

  • I dont remember what we ate all weekend lol But I know We ate out once, chinese! Breakfasts around here are always prepackaged I guess you could say, they are ceral or instant oatmeal. Lunches are technically prepackaged as well, ravioli, mac & Cheese or sandwhiches, and dinners are always made by my husband the chef :) Unless we eat out for dinner which we do about once per week :)
