In your house, who does the cooking? You or your SO/DH? How often do you make a meal? Does your family sit down and eat together at the table or do you just eat whenever or eat in front of the TV? What kind of things do you like to make? Would your family consider the "cook" to be a good one?


I normally do all of the cooking, unless I'm not feeling well and then we just pick something up or order pizza! My husband can cook... but I'm picky and like things done my way! I cook dinner 4 or 5 nights a week, whenever my husband is off work or gets off early (other nights he works until 9:30 and I just make something small for myself). We sit down at the table in our dining room and eat together. I want this to continue when our children are growing up as well. Most of the things I make for dinner have chicken in them. Matt says I'm a great cook!!

Lately I have been doing more cooking but Dh is a much better cook. Since our table is full of everything that should not be on it we haven't been eating at it. We have been eating in front of the TV with the trays.

Once the table is back to normal hopefully maybe even today we will start eating at it again...

Dh and I both cook but I would have to say he does it more so than me. If he is going to be working late (past 5pm) then I will cook otherwise he likes to come home and cook. We try and all sit at the table but it can be hard w/three young kids.
We make alot of things, dh is mexican so we eat alot of mexican dishes (tacos, enchiladas, chile, posole). We also like to grill alot and I love making casseroles. We cook about 5-6 days a week.

DH is the cook in our house and he's a great one! I would say we make pretty traditional meals, chicken, meatloaf, pizza, etc. We usually eat as a family and at the table, but sometimes that varies. There are nights when we get the boys fed and then we have a different meal for us later on. On nights that the boys are with their father we usually eat in front of the computer! We run a photography business so we use Sunday nights to catch up on the business since we just have the baby at home then

Most of the time I do. Sometimes DH will make Burritos/Tacos or grilled cheese sandwiches.

How often do you make a meal? 3-4 times a week. BOth Dh and I work outside the home, most of the time we're too tired to cook. So its pizza or taco bell at least once a week. Or sometimes we have a "fend" night, where dh and I fend for ourselves, but make sure the kids are fed too...lol.

Does your family sit down and eat together at the table or do you just eat whenever or eat in front of the TV?
1/2 and 1/2. Sometimes we eat at the table and sometimes we eat in front of the TV.

What kind of things do you like to make? Whatever is easiest. I hate to cook.

Would your family consider the "cook" to be a good one? I dont know, probably, otherwise they dont eat...lol.

In your house, who does the cooking? Me most of the time, but DH does cook every oncein a while

How often do you make a meal? : Well, we used to cook every night, but lately we have eaten out a lot out of convenience because DH's schedule changed. We are going to get back in the habit of cooking every night though.

Does your family sit down and eat together at the table or do you just eat whenever or eat in front of the TV? Well, since we don't have a table, we all eat together in the living room

What kind of things do you like to make? A little bit of everything I guess: soups, chili, meat with potatoes and a vegetable, sometimes Italian, sometimes Mexican, just depends on our mood

Would your family consider the "cook" to be a good one?: Yes, DH says I am a good cook, and Isabel eats the food, so I guess she thinks it's good. When DH cooks, it is usually only a few special things he does like on the grill in the summer and chili in the winter and it is always very good.

I do most of the time... but Dh is always willing to help out

How often do you make a meal? I cook 4 nights a week, dh works evenings mondays thru wednesdays, so we make it a point to eat together on the nights he has off
Does your family sit down and eat together at the table or do you just eat whenever or eat in front of the TV?
we sit down at the table all of time... its really important to me to sit down as a family

What kind of things do you like to make? dh would love steak and potatoes everynight... i'm more of a pasta woman myself... so we like to mix it up
Would your family consider the "cook" to be a good one? hmmm, dh is a great cook and i can't say that i've ever had any complaints either.
