How Often Do You Cook Dinner at Home?

Assuming you're not making Paula Deen recipes every night, cooking at home is a great way to eat healthy, better understand your calorie intake, and control your portion sizes. So in honor of this week's Get Fit For 2010 challenge to upload a healthy recipe, tell me: how often do you enjoy a home-cooked dinner?

Every night I cook pretty much, unless there is an odd occasion where I must go out to dinner, I am sure this will change in the future but for now, I like it this way - plus I love my own cooking & food & portion sizes!

i LOVE to cook. Especially new recipes that I find on here...shape, self, etc.

I used to eat out a couple times a week but I've realized how enjoyable cooking can be (and how much cheaper) and now I only eat out a couple times a month.

I like eating at home more than eating out.

I cook every single night, but sometimes it's more elaborate than other nights. Sometimes I make a huge batch of soup or a casserole and we eat that a couple of nights in a row. So yeah, we eat at home all the time but I don't necessarily "cook" every night.

I cook every night of the week. We only eat out once on the weekends.

Every day of the week. In any case, I also don't like having dinner out at restaurants etc (but I love eating lunch out), so there are only a handful of exceptions to my homecooked dinner habit. And I have yet to ever order food in.

3-4 nights a week. We only go out once a week. It's easy because I cook seafood or vegetarian dishes, which are faster. It also makes portion control easier.

I usually "cook" 3-4 nights a week and then leftovers or soup/salads the other nights and most lunches. With a teenager at home, it gets too expensive to eat out.

I try to eat homemade meals all days of the week unless there is a special occasion or I have to grab a fast meal for a longer shift at work. It's much easier to stay healthy now that I'm not dining out all the time.

I was really surprised that the choices were so low! I guess that's why restaurants are so busy all the time. I would say most weeks we have 7 breakfasts, 7 lunches & 7 dinners at home. Occasionally I have a lunch n' learn at work, lunch with an old friend, or an evening out... but I would say that it's less than once a week.We don't have the money for date night as much now - we used to go out once a week for dinner.. but that slowed with the recession!

5-6 times a week. We normally cook Sun - Thurs, and then "to-go" or "dine-out" on Fri and Sat.

I eat at home every night. We only go out maybe once a week. I actually really dislike going to most franchise restaurants now. The food never tastes as good as the food from locally owned places

I stopped eating out a year ago and am loving it. Save so much money and I'm eating a lot healthier. I even pack a snack bag to prevent me from buying food when out, my friends find it hilarious but my wallet and jeans are loving it.

I eat at home almost every night, but I don't necessarily cook every day. Sometime a nice sandwich is enough.

I can't afford to eat out. Dinner at home is cheaper and healthier.

My husband and I try to cook as much as we can, at least 4 nights a week. And its for many reasons- we eat healthier that way, its more economical, and we enjoy cooking together :)

I'm like syako. I cook 3-4 times a week, but I usually have left overs the day after I cook.

Well you asked two different questions. The first question was how many times do I enjoy a home cooked meal, and that would be about 6-7 nights a week. The 2nd question was how many times do I cook dinner? That would be 3, sometimes four. It's just hubby and I, so I make dinner for four, save two for leftovers for the next night.

Leftovers count right? :) I almost never eat out anymore.
