Do you cook a full meal every night?

Or do you and your child eat something easy to fix like sandwiches or cereal?

How often do you cook and for how many?

I try to cook at least when I'm off work or working night shift (I do a swing swift at a hotel) We live with my parents so if I'm not here or too tired, my mom will usually take over. Either one of us will sometimes cook a big meal, and sometimes it's something quick to cook (pizza, burgers, etc.) If my dad is left to handle a meal it's usually a sandwich or fast food

We usually do 4 days of full meals and 3 days quick food.

We usually have 4-5 nights with full meals and 2-3 with quick meals.  Depends on how many activities the kids are involved in at the time. =0)

I usually cook 5-7 nights a week. I feed 4-6 people every night

We cook just about every night. DS did have cereal for dinner last night but I just wanted him to eat something since his father hadn't fed him since 10 am (I picked him up at 5 pm)

I usually do full meals. With 2 almost 3 teenagers sandwiches and/or cereal just don't fill them up.

But by a full meal I will do a jar of spaghetti, garlic bread and a bag of salad which takes a whole 10 minutes maybe to throw together? I'll do that when I'm in a bind and have to do something quick.

During the summer I can cook a full meal on the evenings, but during the school year I owe my second job during the evening, on the evenings I don't work we have a game or practice to go to.
