I hardly ever cook at all. I don't eat here much at all... Breakfast once in a great while, I keep yogurt and fruit here so that counts for snacks, too. Sometimes cereal. When I'm at work, I have to eat with the children so that's at the very minimum lunch everyday. And I usually eat with someone for dinner, either out or at there house, or SOUP I love soup. lol

Mostly from scratch nowadays. It wasn't always like that, but little by little we've been doing more and more from scratch. We are to the point where I bake all our own bread, no store-bought bakery stuff here!

We keep a few prepackaged things around (like mac & cheese and some canned soups), but those are mostly just in stock for sick days.

Mostly from scratch. I'll use tinned beans, tomatoes, tomato sauce etc and bottled condiments though. I try to stay away from processed meats like ham and from recipes that rely on e.g. 25% ketchup.

We do everything from scratch here, besides the obvious stuff like yogurt, tomato sauce, etc

I have gotten in a bad habit lately of relying on eating out and too much packaged stuff but usually I do most cooking from scratch

Yogurt and Kefir are SUPER easy to make at home

The only thing you need that a lot of people don't have lying around is a food thermometer
