How many times a week do you cook?

I try to cook at LEAST 4x a week..on a good week 5.

Other days it's leftovers...which rarely happens because I usually only cook what we eat unless it's something like shepherds pie. Or we eat out or order in....a pizza or something.

How about you?! :)

I'd say about the same.. probably 3 or 4, the other days are generally left overs or we go out/order in.

I cook a LOT. I'd say 5 - 6 times a week. We're trying to not go out to eat as much...hopefully this will help us save money and pay down some debt!

I cook aaalllll the time.  I love cooking but cooking during the work week isn't fun cooking, it's a "we gotta eat" kind of cooking.  I always cook Sunday through Thursday.  And either Friday or Saturday I'll cook a nice, more involved meal.  One of those two days, I insist on eating out!!  Although, last night I was at a retirement happy hour for a coworker and it ran longer than anticipated so I texted DH to tell him he'd need to grab take out or make something for himself.  Sorry babes! :)

Either me or DH would could almost every night normally ...but this year the kids extra curricular activities are making things very hectic and a lot of evenings we aren't even home the same times ...so we have been having a lot of "whatever you want nights"  :/

I used to only cook like 3x a week, but now that I'm pregnant (and very picky about what I want to eat) I'm cooking like 6x a week.

i used to cook around 3-5x a week. but now i'm in school full time and student teaching while DH works nights from saturday through wednesday nights, we barely have time to sit down for dinner together, much less spend a lot of time cooking. so we're now trying to cook big batches over the weekend so that we'll have quick meals to heat up during the week.

I love home cooked meals. DH and I used to eat out ALOT, and occassionally we still do but I usually cook between 4-5 times a week. Cooking on Sunday is a must..we usually eat off of that meal for 2 days then by Tues/Wedesday I am preparing something else. We are also expecting our first LO in a few weeks so most of my pregnancy I have been really particular about what we eat (hense avoiding unhealthy stuff) so I have been cooking ALOT. I mean breakfast, lunch and dinner. At least that way I can control the quality of the ingredients! ;-)

I cook about 4 to 5 times a week. We often have salad for dinner, that's quick and healthy. Cooking on Sunday for dinner is a must, aswell as friday and saturday night (if we're not eating out or invited).

I'd say 3-4 times a week.  We eat out a lot!  But we've also been really busy with the wedding... but now that it's over, I'd love to start grocery shopping regularly since most of the time we eat out it's because there isn't much in the kitchen!  So the goal is 5-6 times a week ;)

I love to cook and with hubby's late hours, I usually cook every night except Sunday (date night). Occasionally we will eat out a second night during the week. I try to make a baked good on the weekend, or at least every other weekend. I have about 100 dessert recipes saved LOL!

Usually 2-3 times per week. DH usually isn't hungry for dinner (he's weird), so it's "every man for himself" most days. I usually don't cook when it's just me eating; I'll just eat something that doesn't require it. I try to do at least one "big" meal on the weekends, when my stepson is with us.
