Do you actually cook meals? I have a friend who cannot cook. Everything she buys is premade. She can't even make lasagna. if I eat too much processed frozen stuff like that, I get sick.

Yes, premade food is awful for you, she might as well be eating mcdonalds for every meal.

Yep. Well, I'm no gourmet chef, but I can cook reasonably well.

I can but not intuitively. I have no natural aptitude for it and it's not fun for me at all, I avoid it whenever I can.

I've recently started teaching myself and realizing that things I thought sounded terrifying acutally aren't that hard at all... this coming from a woman who has succeeded in burning soup lol...I try to give us a lot of variety because I get tired of the same foods really fast... which is why we used to eat out so much before we had DD... now we really can't afford it and we like eating at home better

I cook 2 meals a day, usually from scratch, but every now and again I get lazy and make boxed sides or a frozen pizza lol. I have a friend who had never cooked a thing in her life that didn't go in the microwave, so when she was pregnant she begged me to teach her how to cook lol.

Oh yeah!

I mean, my mom certainly never taught me (she's the McDonald's queen), and when DH and I first got together, we ate a lot of fast food and processed box stuff because that's all I knew! The more I cooked though, the more my confidence grew and I began cooking more from scratch!

I still use some boxed foods, but it's very limited nowadays!

I am a good cook. Best cook ever according to my family but I think they butter me up so they don't have to cook☺
