How many days a week do you cook?

How many days a week do you cook dinner?

So I would say that I cook about 4, 5 or 6 nights a week (usually my husband & I just pick something up for day 7) .  We don’t eat out much (its pretty hectic to eat out with four kids ages 6 & under!) so we do a lot of eating at home.  We eat out maybe 1-2 times a month with all of them.

When I was growing up, we had a home-cooked meal just about every night.  We had just what I cook now for my own family: a meat, a vegetable & a starch.   About once or twice a week, I’ll also add dessert.  Tonight we had chicken a-la king, rolls, peas & apple crisp for desert.   (The boys helped me cut up the apples).
I think that kids enjoy a meal a little more when they have helped prepare it.   Afterwards they cleared the table & then asked for more apple crisp.  I guess clearing the table & cleaning up worked up an appetite… again. 🙂  (Growing boys!)

The results are in…


7 DAYS A WEEK.  ————– 25% (11 people) 

 5-6 days a week——————- 53 %   (23 people)

3-4 days a week ——————– 13%  (6 people)

3 of you cook 2 or fewer days per week.  7 %  (3 people)
