Fiance cooks, he is a great cook. I rarely cook, but he enjoys it more and he loves to BBQ. But I am the Baker!! I love to bake. I really lucked out. He lived on his own for a long time before we moved in together. So he cleans and cooks etc and I never ever have to ask, I feel very fortunate.

I cook, and I love to cook. And he cleans. In my mind…I win.

We almost always cook dinner together, unless one of us has a meeting or is working or something.

We take turns on cooking… And whoever cooks does not do the dishes, unless one of us is really exhausted or it’s a special treat. And breakfast in bed for one of us at least once a weekend!

we probably cook at home about 5 days a week – he usually cooks 🙂
i used to – but for some reason when we moved into our new house he took over the cooking.

You totally win. No question.

We eat home-cooked food about 5 nights a week. I like to cook something early in the week that will last a few days. Other nights we’ll have something even quicker and easier, like a sandwich! Usually corn dogs or something every couple of weeks, which is what Fiance considers “cooking” dinner. We eat out sporadically and order pizza too often. I’m trying to stop that, but it requires so much more effort. . .

I make dinner almost every night. We have very, very limited options for eating out so usually only do that once every two weeks when we go grocery shopping in a bigger city.
Fiance has never cooked for me, though he’ll usually start dinner for me if I’m running late.

We usually cook 3-4 times a week. Once a week we are at his parent’s for dinner and the other 2-3 nights are take-out or dinner out with friends. He cooks more than I do, although I do cook sometimes. He actually enjoys cooking and he’s a very, very picky eater so it’s better for him to cook things that we will both enjoy (I will eat anything, seriously) than for me to cook something he won’t eat.
We are actively trying to eat out less as it’s better for our wallets and our bodies, but after long days in the office it’s just sooooo easy to get take-out from the pizza place next door!!

Typically every night, unless we have the extra cash to go out or order out.
As for who? Usually my Fiance, though I’ll also do it on weekends and sometimes during the week. He’s the chef of the family, and loves cooking. Which is why he typically does it. 😉

We cook Monday-Thursday, and Sunday. Fridays and Saturdays are kind of fend for yourself night. Fridays are leftovers or something easy. And Saturdays we cook together or go out.

hubs cooks most nights, we usually eat out only like once per week, or if we run out of groceries. i usually only cook if i have more time than usual or if i’m on my own for the night. i’m actually a good cook too (if i do say so myself :P) but hubs loves cooking–it’s his hobby, he has a cooking blog and loves it. and i’m in grad school so my work never ends, whereas he is done with work at 5pm. and he’s an alpha chef–if we cook together he gets super bossy and annoying 😉
we also usually make lunch and breakfast at home too since we’re both here during the day as well. either we fix things separately, like i eat yogurt and a banana for most breakfasts, or he’ll make something.

I cook every single night. And I am so over it.
It’s not his fault, it just happens that I work days and he works nights so it is just the way it has to work. We both work up to 7 days a week. I work all day, come home, cook dinner, take dinner in to him at work, and by the time I’m finally home and can relax it’s 8:30pm.
It’s the only way I actually get to see him, but I am still sick of it.

7 days a week we have home cooked food, unless we are travelling.
we have a 3/4-4/3 split and each cook equally give or take.

I cook 4-5 times a week, with leftovers on occasion. We probably eat out an average of once a week. I do all of the cooking – he has cooked once in the past five months. In his defense, though, when we eat out he usually pays 🙂 (even though it won’t matter in the end after we combine our bank accounts)
ETA: oh yes, forgot to add that I too am sick of cooking. Seriously, sometimes I LONG for my long distance days when I could get by with eating a handful of Cheez-its and a diet Coke and call it dinner. “Yes honey, I already had dinner, did you?”
