Question How often do you cook?

My younger daughter came home last week and said that her teacher asked her class how often they eat fast food. And she raised her hand for "a lot"?!?!?! I was so embarassed! I cook about five days a week. We have an EXTREMELY busy schedule during the school year but I still try to make Sunday dinner and usually whip something up during the week more often than not. From what I hear from other moms they do fast food a lot more than we do. So I wondered what my PTO'ers do , cook , order in, or fast food? I want to take my own survey.

Hmm, I don't cook, but someone at my house always does, so the poll answers dont apply to me!

I cook every day. I use to do a lot of "what if" which ended up with stuff that even the alley cats/stray dogs won't eat!

Learning to use a crock pot or a slow cooker makes life earier! Put it on (low) at bed time and things are done when you get up. I basicly keep things simple, with more favor then fast foods or the bland all you can eat places YUCK! Using those oven bags are grrrreat too! No mess to clean up.

Did you know it cost 2/3 more to eat out, then eating in.

I don't cook, my roomy does !! He IS the best !!! Our friends love coming home for dinner !!

He can cook just about anything !! Our kitchen is full of cooking books. He can cook french food of course, but also chinese, thai, moroccan mediteranean etc !! He just loves it and should have made a lot of money had he opened up a restaurant.

He goes shopping everyday, and NOT in super markets, but he goes to our neighborhood butchers, grocer's, baker's etc, and every sunday morning, he goes to the street market. Everyone knows him, and even in the Chinatown shops he's well known !!!

He can spend a whole saturday cooking a chinese or thai or whatever dinner for friends, he LOVES it.

Needless to say our food budget is HUGE !!!

Phil

I don't cook every day. I cook a lot, but there are some days when I don't want to cook, so I cook ahead on the days when I do cook. Also, my grand-daughters are learning to cook, so sometimes they do the honors.

I cook everyday too, although some nights through the week it may be different kinds of grilled sandwiches. Sometimes I don't have the energy left for a full dinner.

Cook? What is this "cooking" you speak of? Yeah, my daughter and I know the girls at the local McDonald's and a couple of waiters at Denny's enough to ask about their families!

I'm a BAAAAAD Mommy!!! He'll be home soon, though, so guess I'd better attempt to locate this kitchen that I'm told I have!

I usually cook about 4 nights a week....
Then "every" Sunday, either the grill or the smoker is fired up and going all day. Wether I'm at home, or at a buddies house... Sunday, football, and cooking out all just go together!

Toi, as a matter of fact, he comes from South west France, where they make "foie gras". Duck "foie gras", which is better than goose "foie gras".

His mom has a wonderful farm type house in a small village in the Dax area, between Bordeaux and Biarritz. She has her own ducks and chickens and grows her own corn to feed them.

She makes her own foie gras from her own ducks, and also our deep freezer is full of her chickens, her duck "magrets", her duck "aiguillettes" and also her duck "confits". Each time she comes to Paris, we almost need a truck to go pick her up at the railway station. Once she came with something like 60 eggs !!! That was funny, but we must admit the eggs she gives us, we can't find the same anywhere in Paris, even in the finest shops !! We also NEVER buy chickens in Paris. Even the most expensive ones are never as good as my roomy's mom's !!

Phil

I usually whoop a little something up for me and my baby. When Trav got home we had some really nice family dinners and bar-b-ques. Now it is back to whooping up a little something for me and my baby~
