Default Another Housekeeping Question--Meals...

How often do you cook meals at home? Cook as in, make something that's not just a frozen dinner or something. Do you or others in the house do the cooking?

Every meal, except for Wednesdays since I'm at work all day. Or the odd time I go out (maybe twice a month?)

every day. I don't even make preprocessed meals. All our meals are home made. I do 95% of the cooking. I love to try out new recipes and create my own recipes too. We will get take out maybe once or twice a month but that is a treat and not the norm

Every night.

We don't eat frozen meals, we cook every meal from scratch. Doesn't take that long at all.

I also make soups from scratch and freeze them for lunches

Ok, now I feel a bit ashamed. DH is out of town and he usually cooks. I was thinking about Kraft mac n cheese for dinner but then was like, "But then I'll have to boil water and measure milk and butter and stuff--So.Much.Woooooork!!!"

I try to make a couple of different meals on Sunday so that we have plenty of food to get us through the week. It's a PITA, though... I usually wind up spending all day in the kitchen and making 3 meals; one for Sunday dinner, and two for meals during the week.

Tonight I'm making spaghetti with venison meatballs (that will be our meal for the week) and fried pork chops with rice + gravy and roasted Parmesan green beans. We can supplement with sandwiches as needed during the week.

I usually pretty much every night, but there's some cheating involved- frozen french fries some night with whatever meat we're having, and some nights I toss frozen pizza in the oven. Right now we've got wacky scheduling- I get home from work just before 4, and hubby starts work at 6PM (leaves about 5:30). Two nights a week I leave right around the same time he does for training classes. So there are also times we just skip eating before he goes to work- he'll grab something on his break and I eat what/whenever.

I cook from scratch at least 4 times a week and hope there are leftovers to take for my lunch or eat for dinner the next day.
