    I think it's like 4 times a week so I voted in the "every other day" category.
    I had to change the way I eat due to some GI problems so it's better that I cook at home. Been eating a lot of salads, soups and fruits and I also think I can save some money staying in than eating out. Plus, I try my best to get fresh organic veggies n fruits. When you go eat out, you don't really know what you are getting ingredient-wise unless it's a specialized or fancy restaurant.

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    I hate cooking, but I do it anyway with a grumpy attitude. I can make enough to last for several days because I hate looking at dishes. Every other day was my pic.

    Everyday, I love cooking and it's more affordable / healthier than eating out or buying pre-cooked stuff

    I'd say almost every other day, I really enjoy cooking now and find it relaxing but I know it sounds like an excuse but sometimes I am just so tired after work that all I want to do is plonk down on the sofa, in these days I just make something like toast or heat up some ready made soup.

    Last week I made two meals from scratch a shepherds pie because my boyf likes regular british meals and a pasta dish with tomatoes and garlic and loads of stuff I threw in, suprisingly it was very good.

    I said every day, because some sort of meal is usually being made at some point in the day. We can't afford to eat out very often, but if we could, we'd probably do it at least once a week. I do enjoy cooking, though.

    I was the once a week vote. I enjoy cooking but I'm usually too tired after work and would rather go out or order takeout.

    We cook at home (my boyfriend or myself, or we cook something together) virtually every day. It saves money, and we know what to expect in terms of quality, ingredients, nutrition, and how much time it will take. If we had a comfortable amount of money I think we'd likely eat out about once a week for dinner and maybe once for lunch - still having most of our meals at home. As it is, we eat out maybe once a month and get takeout two or three times a month.

    Never. I decided to make some chicken soup the other day because I had a cold and I had to ask my husband where we keep the pots.

    I cook everyday - if I know my schedule will be out of control I cook ahead to have something to grab and feed.

    I bad week is when I run out of time and food and I'll pick up some Chinese on the way home.

    I cook most of the time, like 3-5 days outta the week. Usually when I don;t fell like it, I pop a frozen meal or a Lean Cusine in the microwave and eat that or go out.

    i love those lean cuisines, especially the pasta ones...i always end up with 10 rice ones in the freezer and never eating them.

    unless i'm really hungry, then i just eat them all in one go
