I made meatloaf, mashed potatoes with gravy, corn, and biscuits last night. The best part of making this meal is that there are enough leftovers for Ernie and I to both take lunch to work the next day.

^ I had meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy last night too! We had broccoli with it.

I make dinner about 4-5 nights a week. We eat out or order in on the weekends.

I make my own dinner every night.

Tonight was leftover birthday cake, so that was a beautiful exception to the crap I usually put together.

How do people have the energy to cook every night! 1st the cooking thent the dishes, uurgh. I work in retail so I run around for 9 hrs a day with a litttle break in the middle. The last thing I want to do is stand over the stove/sink. I actually bought a stool to sit on for cooking but it didn't really help. I need a Mum to come and cook for me

I only wash the dishes when I run out of clean ones.

Nearly every night. Always something fresh, have a healthy amount of of salads and fish during the week. Got into that habit living in Spain.

Rarely eat out, we were out twice over the last month - once for a wedding and the other time for a birthday (at a sushi place )

fear. ok, not everyone is as paranoid as me, but i fear processed foods, and i fear what other people do to food when eating out. i'd rather eat cereal at home than eat a good dinner out. i can't handle the thought of a stranger's fingers having been on my food.

i think the hurdle for cooking is a psychological one for many people. you can teach yourself to love it.


ps: dishwashers

Actually, what I've tried doing is to make up a rough menu for the next week, thinking of ways that I can use things I already have in my kitchen along with stuff I can buy to make several meals. Then on Saturday or Sunday, go grocery shopping and spend a few hours cutting things up, prepping and cooking. If you make a casserole or two, you can freeze it or put it in the fridge and have dinner ready to go when you get home from work without all the work.

I don't really like eating out.
I don't eat much meat so I always pick the same kind of meal. Not only that but eating out here is either really expensive.

My Mum bought us a steamer a few weeks ago and it's great. All you have to do is throw the food in there and set the timer, it will alert you when the food is done. It does all the work. Steamed salmon.
Last year when I worked at night I used to eat a lot of salads. I usually chop up peppers and red onion in the morning or the night before, wash a few leaves and when I get home I can throw in some chicken or just eat it with fish like salmon or tuna.
I also put a lot of things in the freezer and fridge, like Sula says, so minimal cooking was required during the week.

Yesterday I made jasmine rice and lemon pepper fillets of pollock. Fish.

I do like eating out, but mostly because then I can go to fun ethnic restaurants and have food I don't normally make at home.

That's why some nights I say to heck with it and get a pizza.
