Do you when you cook?


Cook maybe 4 times a week.
Take out maybe 3 times a week.

My wife is a good cook (thank god because I can't cook and it's tough making good vegetarian/vegan food) so I would say for dinner the ratio is usually 6:1 for home cooked meals vs going/ordering out.
Friday or Saturday nights we are usually lazy and go out somewhere or order something.

It's about even, cook a little bit more than takeout, I'd say. And when I do get takeout it's mostly on weekends.

What about you?

I rarely cook, because I'm not a good cook, and have a small kitchen.
Normally I get me something I just have to put in the oven or bags that get boiled in a pot.

Sometimes even frozen pizza, and once every two weeks, sometimes once per week I just buy myself a kebap.

But I don't like to do something that takes some 20 minutes in preparation alone, especially because I have no room for it.

well i try to cook as much as possible. but too often i find it tremendously boring - and time consuming. luckily we have a good staff restaurant at work so i get a good meal each day, regardless of whether i cook or not.

i'd say it's probably 3-4 days a week or so that i cook.

Usually twice a week - friday night and saturday night. But I love cooking and tend to go crazy on sunday, cooking meals that I can have for dinner or lunch during the week.

I try to cook more often than I used to. I bought a ton of Rachael Ray cook books on Ebay for inspiration. I found myself spending too much money on take out and eating too much bad (yummy) food. that being said, take out is about 1-2 times a week. sometimes cook something with a lot of ingredients, sometimes just something out of the freezer.

I rarely cook, but would like to start doing it more often. Too much prep time and cleanup afterwards is my excuse.

I try to cook dinner every night becuase durning the day I am at work and I have to eat take out. I think it is important to eat a healthy breakfast and dinner.

I cook most of my meals at home, partly because I'm poor and partly because I enjoy cooking. I like things the way I like them and when I have an idea in my head for a particular meal, I know I won't be able to find exactly what I want out in some restaurant.

I also like to cook at home because then I have more control over the ingredients that go into my food. No bad or hydrogenated oils, no high-fructose corn syrup, no refined salts.

I eat out maybe once a week and sometimes I go over to my friends house for a home-cooked meal but I don't suppose that counts.

I don't cook at all

Hubby cooks, but it seems like we do get a lot of take out. Dinner would be 50/50 in/take-out. Lunch is usually take-out. Yesterday was Popeye's for lunch and hubby's beef stew for dinner.

I cook almost all my meals. I'd say I do pizza (either frozen or delivery) or some type of fully prepared meal (take out or just heat meals from the supermarket) maybe once or twice a week at most, and that includes all meals, not just dinner.

I think the last time I actually ate in a restaurant -- even a fast food one -- was in August.
