  • Maybe 5 nights. I try to make things that we can have leftovers a few days later or that I can morph into something else, just to give myself a break. I like to cook, but sometimes I am just over it. This week I was over it a few

  • At least five times a week. My Husband also likes to cook (and He is amazing at it), so He does so once a week, sometimes twice. At least once a week, We have a "fend for yourself" night to give both of Us a night off.

  • Most weeks it's seven. However, once in a while we bring in take out like pizza or hero sandwiches which gives me a break from cooking.

  • 4-6, and the nights I don't we eat leftovers - so still homemade food.

  • During my busy season at work I cook maybe 2 or 3 nights each week. The rest of the year I probably cook 4 nights each week. My husband and teen both help out with cooking, and we go out or have take out at least once or twice each week.

  • 3-4 depends on my husband work and children's activity and therapy schedules. HOWEVER, I typically make foods that can be reheated during the week--casseroles, vegetable, pasta, and meat dishes, etc. every weekend (and freeze extra meals), so that we're all still eating healthy--even on the fly! :o)

  • Most weeks every night but we will go out maybe once a week every other week or so. I cook 'from scratch' 4-5 of those 7 nights.
