    We cook everyday. Fiance usually cooks because I’m not that great at it! We have a deal – whoever cooks the other does the dishes. Man, I can’t wait until we have a dishwasher!!

    Before we moved in with our mothers (I really need this to end immediately), I would cook monday-thur/friday and we would cook together or go out on weekends

    I cook, and FH will not eat leftovers, so usually, I cook Sunday-Thursday and we eat out Friday and Saturday. Typically. Though if I’m feeling lazy, one of those weeknights we might order Chinese.

    DH works some weekends and I only work 4 weekdays.  Whomever is home 1st cooks dinner – every night.  We eat out maybe once a month – if that.  Even on weekends when we’re both home – yes we cook a regular home cooked meal together.

    Fiance cooks most nights during the week… He gets home way before me, so if he waited for me to cook we wouldn’t eat dinner till after 10pm.  I generally do the cooking on the weekends, unless we are out at my parents or go out to eat.  He usually does stuff like tacos, pasta, starry, while I go elaborate like a roasted chicken with tons of sides, or a stew or soup…

    Fiance has transitioned into the main cook in the household – he’s just better at it and it works.  We cook dinner usually 5 nights a week, 1 leftovers, 1 pizza or so.

    As long as I feel well and we’re home, I’ll make dinner. That’s usually 3 times a weekish.

    I cook 5-6 nights a week. I enjoy cooking and my SO doesn’t, so he’ll just do the dishes after.  We eat out 1-2 nights a week.

    We cook every day. I normally do a few meals on the weekend and freeze them for the week. Other than that, it’s whoever has time, but mostly it ends up being me.

    We cook 5-6 times a week, go to FI’s parents once a week usually and cook every other day. Who ever is home from work first usually starts/does most cooking which is often me, but he’ll join in and help or clean after I’m done.

    We cook pretty much every night and might do take out once a week if that.

    We both love cooking and cooking together. So it usually depends on what we’re making? But usually if one’s cooking the other’s helping with prep work and clean up, etc.

    I tend to throw most meals together in the evening- but he always helps (peeling onions etc) but then he’ll cook once or twice a week on his own- he pretty much taught me to cook when we first got together. I was always spoilt at home and before him I had spend one year at Univeristy eating beans on toast (very British!) haha

    I do all of the cooking (breakfast, lunch, dinner if we’re home). He cleans up though 🙂 

    I cook 5-6 nights/week. Generally we go out once on the weekend. Sometimes we might also pick something up to bring home one other night if i don’t feel like cooking.
