A typical week for us might be....

Salmon, green veg, rice
Chilli from scratch (we don't buy bottled sauces) and green veg
Homemade burgers, flat mushrooms, roasted root veg
Chicken curry (from scratch!!) with rice, if it's thai curry we do use paste.
Stir fry veg, chicken, fried pak choi, rice noodles
Steak and home made sweet potato wedges, salad.
Roast chicken, green veg, roasted veg (courgette, parsnip etc, that's what we had tonight!).

Lots of low carb at moment as I'm continuing my detox (failed today though and ate chocolate!!). Well, eating starchy carbs this week, need to cut back!

Lunches are salad or soup I make (roast pumpkin/squash, thai chicken & lentil, green soup etc).

Breakfast is usally berries, Greek yoghurt and cinnamon at moment!!!

Trying, trying, trying to be healthy!!!!!!!

It's not hard to do.... But I do enjoy cooking.

Ideally I'd be homecooking every day, but this house is very cluttered, has a wonky oven, an electric stovetop which I'm not used to, etc... I'll get back to it once we are more settled.

I don't think I've ever measured the amounts of anything I put in mac n cheese..

We split who cooks. It varies by week who cooks what, how many days we cook or if we grab food out.

Hmm, I'll go with twice a week. Right now SO is often working past dinner time, and the rest of my family eats fast food almost every night. The past few nights have been pretty typical:

Pizza tonight
My mom made chicken pot pie last night, but it was like a pre-made Costco one
The night before I made BBQ chicken, mashed potatoes and stuffing
Wendy's the night before
I can't remember weds, probably soup and a sandwich
Tuesday McDonald's
Monday I forgot dinner
Sunday lamb burgers (homemade)

I like to cook but no one eats what I make here so I get sad and don't, plus there's not much fridge or freezer space for leftovers

Every day, here. I do pretty much all of the cooking, except when we have room mates and then it is split more often.

My cheats are frozen pizza every once in a while, if I'm just too tired to make something from scratch.

However, my OH is out of town for a couple of weeks and I absolutely love just eating cereal or snacking through meals, just because I can I get super lazy when I'm on my own.

i cook from scratch at least 5 times a week, usually every day. i like to eat, and i like to make things to eat even more

I don't when I make it from scratch, but I do when I make the boxed ones, except for the butter.

Much to my surprise, the other inhabitants of the house eat exclusively frozen or prepackaged meals. Pretty freaking gross.

We cook 2 or 3 meals a week, but they're definitely full of "cheats". Tonight we made a fancy spinach/chicken pasta, but we used a premade alfredo sauce. Tomorrow we'll have tacos, but that only involves browning ground turkey and adding the seasoning packet. Later in the week, we'll have chicken made with one of those tasty kraft breadcrumb things from the dairy section of the grocery store, along with a salad kit and some rice.

A few times a month we'll make something totally from scratch. In all honesty though, neither of us enjoys eating very much, so spending so much time making food is a waste.

We eat home-cooked meals typically every night... We might make an exception on the weekends, though.

In winter, I like to cook in bigger batches so we can simply reheat and eat leftovers.

In summer, it's a lot of grilling and salads/grilled veggies.
