I spend about an hour every night cooking dinner. I think my guys are so spoiled as I cook full meals every night. I feel like feeding them P&J for a few days

On average, about 0 minutes per day . My husband does most of the cooking, even when I'm not pregnant. I'm spoiled.

Well, prior to this pregnancy...about an hour a day. I'm like you, full meals at dinner every night (with Friday as an exception...that's pizza night). But, I have barely been able to cook this go-round...too nauseous. I did cook tonight though. My Dh was thrilled when he got home and realized I'd made dinner! hahaha We've been doing cereal, pb&j or take-out for about 6 weeks now!

Anywhere from a half hour to an hour and a half, depending on what I'm making. I also make a full meal, but then again, I'm a SAHM, so it's kinda my job.

Although, while I had severe m/s in the beginning, I spent ZERO time on it. They ate cold cereal most nights. LOL

Usually about 30 mins to an hour, but now that summer has rolled around we use the BBQ alot, and that's DH's job so I just spend 10-15 mins preparing whatever goes on.

We don't have full meals everynight, but most.

When i get around to cooking, about an hour, but i only cook for the family about three times a week. This last week I've cooked once because every smell turns my stomach, but i do like cooking when i have time and am not wrking too late. My husband is often home more, but his cooking leaves a lot to be desired

I cook when I have time. Usually 30-60 mins. I work full time though and with kid activities there isn't always enough time in the day to cook. Taking an hour to cook dinner when we get home after 6 just stinks. Anyway I would love to do it every night .

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my great siggie

It varies depending on the day. If there is a lot going on, I will do a quick meal (I always have frozen pizza and casserole's in the freezer). If we don't have plans for the evening, then I cook a full meal. I often cook double batches of my big meals and freeze half to use on the nights I don't want to/don't have time to cook a full meal. Spaghetti sauce, shepherd's pie, stew, and lasagna work great for this. I plan to cook a lot of meals to freeze before the baby comes.

Wow...I am a total slacker. Lol.

I am a WAHM who HATES to cook (even if it is part of my "job description"). Not to be confused with unable to cook. I just really despise taking the time to do it and the clean-up and such. So our meals are generally pretty simple and easy. When I cook, I spend less than 30 minutes doing it. Most nights, DH cooks dinner while I bathe Liam and get him into bed. He spends about the same (30 minutes) and thankfully does not mind being the primary meal person in the house. I always pick out what to make and he just does the legwork of getting it cooked. I serve it. Works for us

It depends for me...some nights like most of you ladies I spend about one hour preparing dinner, but other nights I might just grab a frozen pizza or some tv dinners! My hubby is an awesome cook so he jumps in and helps most of the time, too.

When I was pregnant, about an hour, give or take. Lately, not at all. After my c-section I did nothing, including cooking. My boyfriend did absolutely everything around the house.

Now that its just the two kids and Mia, I cook alot less......When I was married to my ex, I cooked ALL THE TIME, big meals, every night......Jerry on the other hand loves to go out to eat, and after 20yrs of cooking every night......Im enjoying it! Id say I spend about 30-hr three nights a week now...my kids dont mind either! The two older ones who no longer live with me (Army and one moved in with his dad) are spoiled and hate to go out to eat....god help them when they get married, lol
