Do you cook dinner every night? or does your hubby or s/o helpou or do you take out?

I do the majority of the cooking, we someties do it together, he will take over when /i cant or dont want to and maybe once a month or twice if lucky we will get pizza or somthing like that.

  • Nope, I do not cook dinner every night.

    My husband and I both cook. Between the two of us, we cook dinner 3-4 times a week.The rest of the time we eat out, have take away or delivery. We are empty nesters now, so since it's just the two of us, we cook and eat at home a lot less than we used to when our son was growing up.

  • I cook around 5 x per week. The other 2 days are takeout. Hubby never cooks.

  • I do most of the cooking. DH is military and he works late or is away fairly often, so I'm used to doing the cooking. When he is home, he will cook if I ask him to (and he's pretty good at it), and occasionally we go out to eat. We don't do much fast food, we don't really like it. If we aren't cooking at home, we are eating at a nicer restaurant. But that's only maybe once every couple of months if that.

  • I cook every night and do it myself. My husband knows I am just that way and dont want anyone in my way when I am cooking. About once a week we do try and eat out. Sometimes it is more like once every two weeks though. When we do eat out its usually KFC, Chinese or Pizza.

  • I cook probably 70% of the time. Dh cooks probably 25% and we'll do take-out or a restaurant the other 5%. Our schedules just work out that I am home first and able to devote the time to cooking at that part of the day. DH nearly always packs lunches (for all of us) and we probably take 50-50 on breakfast, so I think we even-out nicely on the food production chores.

    The laundry is a different beast....

  • I typically cook. DH does help out when he's not on the evening shift. We live in a tiny town with only one take out option - and a very tight budget and a large family - so cooking at home is typically our course of action :) Which is fine because I love to cook :)

  • I cook about 6 nights a week and we go out around once a week. If there's a homecooked meal, I've made it.

  • I do most of the cooking (EVERY NIGHT) unless he wants to BBQ or pick up a pizza. He has his dishes he likes to cook for us as well. But I LOVE to cook and Im good at it. :)
