I love to cook. I usually only go all out for dinner. I will spend quite a bit a time in the kitchen at night making a nice dinner. But when it's breakfast or lunch I keep it pretty simple. My DD's get alot of toaster/microwave food. I buy the waffles and pancakes that you make in the toaster. And lunches consists of hotdogs or microwavable corndogs. Cans of Ravioli or Spaghetti O's. How about you? Do you go all out on every meal?

No, I don't go all out for every meal but I don't do canned or microwavables, either.

I cook a homemade breakfast and dinner. Lunch is usually a sandwich or leftovers. We may eat something from a can once a month.

I'm expecting my first and I have never really cooked. I guess I'm just going to jump in and try. It can't be that bad.

 I cook from a can or box or freezer every day. I hate to cook. I am not a good cook.

Cereal, frozen waffles or eggs and toast are generally breakfast foods.

Sandwich, mac n cheese, canned pasta are lunch foods

Meat, canned or frozen veggies or a fresh salad with some sort of side be it pasta, rice or potatoes for dinners.

Snacks are fresh fruit or veggies, packaged cookies, packaged crackers, chips.

Yup, I suck.

Other. I don't use the microwave or canned food. DH does. I make large meals and have fresh things for snacks.

We do have a stock of canned foods for emergency situations.
