That's pretty much how I cook-"semi homemade".

Probably only 3-4 nights a week. Monday and Tuesday I am usually still at school at dinner time so I eat on campus. Sunday I just don't feel like it, I do a bunch of homework and cleaning and then my two TV shows are on, so I usually have a frozen chicken pot pie. So Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday are open for me to make meals. I just have to stop forgetting to take things out to defrost.

Thank you ~Dixie's Mom~ for my awesome siggy!

Those 2-3 meals a week generally provide enough leftovers to fill the other days. We'll go out Friday or Saturday, and that's the week.

Pretty much every meal. We do go out usually for lunch after church though

Hubby and I both cook. We each have our specialties and our areas of "expertise" lol. Hubby is a fantastic cook

I used to cook every night, but now hardly anyone is home anymore so I have simple dinners for husband, dad and I, mostly soup and sandwiches, fish sticks or salads and have a bigger meal twice a week and eat the left overs other nights. My husband is a good cook and enjoys it. I never enjoyed cooking, always just did it because we had to eat.

Always. I do sometimes eat frozen stuff, but it's something I made (or assembled) and then froze - not something packaged at a plant or anything like that. Right now I'm really low on stuff in the freezer since I have no money and am low on food in general, so I don't have any spare cash to batch buy/cook. And it sucks because I'm really depressed and cooking is not something I want to do. So I guess it's good that about all I can afford is eggs because that's really frickin' easy to make for every meal...

I make supper 4-5 nights a week, some nights parts will be pre made, sorry but I am not making my own pasta or sauces, lol, nor do I bake bread! Usually I make chicken, we have beef one night a week, hubby wont eat fish and I wont eat pork so those are rarely ever cooked here. Hubby makes a pot of home made soup every 4-6 months but other then that he does little cooking.

I cook every night, except on the odd nights we go out. 95% are from scratch
When I'm really unmotivated I get premade pizza dough and sauce. The I throw stuff on there and call it a meal.

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.
