How Often Do You Cook Dinner?

I cook maybe two times a week and used the rest for leftovers. 

How often do you cook?
Do you use leftovers or throw it all out? 




This week's feature was sloppy joes and then using the leftover beef sauce to make pasta.  

What is your foodie thing for this week?


I am also joining in with other blog hops. So if you happen to visit and follow me, I will definitely be returning the love. Just let me know that you do in a comment.

  1. I cook 2-3 times a week and use the rest for leftovers. I make myself breakfast and lunch for the whole week at the beginning of the week if I can. We usually end up eating out on the weekends.

    I made some hot & sour soup and some chili in the crock pot this week...stop by and check it out if you have a chance!

  2. I usually cook dinner 4 times a week. I try to use left-overs the other days and we normally eat out once per week when things are crazy.

  3. I like to make foods that can become the ingredients in other dishes as my hubby hates leftovers so I have to be clever about it. Then he is a meat eater where I prefer veggies and pastas. I can brown some hamburger with peppers and onions and serve it over rice then use the left over hamburger for chili, spaghetti, or goulash, but we try to limit red meat. We did this with ground turkey the other day and he was fine with that. It became chili, then chili casserole with cornbread on top.

  4. I cook most night of the week. I don't really like leftovers for dinner, so I work on them for lunches. We don't have many good restaurants around here and we have a two year old, so eating out is rare.

  5. We cook a few times a week in bulk so we have leftovers throughout the week!

  6. I cook dinner almost every day and we use the leftovers for lunch the following day. Since my DH is a farmer we eat 3 meals at home each day.

  7. Most of the time, I cook dinner at least 4-5 times per week. During the spring, our two youngest boys play baseball. That keeps us really busy and at the baseball park many nights so I don't cook as much in the spring. Leftovers usually get thrown out.

  9. I cook probably three times a week, and my oldest son helps with the cook for the rest.

    I'm the only one that eat left over, that's why I don't cook often.

  10. Lately not much. Due to complications of spinal surgery it is difficult for me. I am very fortunate that I have an understanding husband.

  11. If my mom stays with me, then I HAVE to cook 7 days a week, 3 times a day. Just thinking of this I'm pruning already :-(

    But normally I cook 3-4 times a week, and eat left over by myself!

  12. I cook every day of the week aside from us ordering pizza or getting take out when it's really hot or hubby wants to give me a break. ;) He's not a fan of leftovers, so I usually make it so there's just enough left over for me to have for lunch the next day. :)

  13. I cook 5 days a week..as we eat out on weekends.. I try to cook enough for the meal to minimize leftovers. IF there are any we will eat it for the next meal

  14. I cook 2-3 days a week, other nights we have to grab something fast because we're too busy.

  15. My kids are grown and work. Not everybody's schedule allows us to eat at the same time. However, there will always be Tacos on Thursdays, Pizza on Friday and Pasta on Saturday.

    Have a great weekend!

  16. I cook almost every night and the leftovers go with my hubby and daughter the next day for their lunch. We rarely have leftovers here.

    Happy Weekend girl!

  17. You know I used to cook almost daily. Now, I have been doing more eating out. My life has just been so crazy and it's been hard to cook. I am planning on getting back into it though!

  18. I cook most nights but we do eat out at least once a week, sometimes twice. My husband and son dont mind leftovers, but I'm not big on them, but will eat leftover pizza or something like Chili or beans.

  19. TechyDad does the cooking typically each night. We rarely eat out.

  20. When I'm well and have the energy, I do like to attempt to cook for my family {and I use the word 'attempt' quite literally LOL}.

    So far, most of my meals have been quite edible! :)

    Happy Friday!

  21. We cook a few nights a week, and we always keep the leftovers, but end up throwing a lot out :(

    I would love to be one of those people who plans meals for the entire week, but I haven't been that organized so far :)

  22. I cook almost everyday.
    I am now much better at using left overs, and being more creative. I used to always throw them away.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I cook about 4 times a week, or more. I definitely use leftovers; I hate waste!

    ReplyDelete
  24. We are trying to cook more lately, and are also trying to use up leftovers. Leftovers normally become lunches in this house.

  26. A good 5-6 times a week. But I also cook 2-3 per day. Geez...

    ReplyDelete
  27. I go through some spurts of not wanting to cook at all, it takes too much time.
    I never really eat the left overs, I would save it and then throw it away in a couple of days, but we always have good intentions. :-)

  28. I always cook for myself because I live alone, and I always eat leftovers. They're my favorite. Have a great holiday!
