How long do you spend cooking a main meal on a typical day?
I'm a fairly speedy cook, many meals are ready in thirty minutes or less.. How about you?
About the same, half an hour, unless you count the meals I make in my crock pot - I actually take about ten minutes to assemble those, but they take hours to cook!
I'm the same. Usually I spend 30 minutes or so on dinner. My husband and I have about 10 or so 'stand-by' meals we usually make during the week. We save our adventurous cooking for the weekends.
I spend about one to two hours. I usually start around 2 and finish when my children get home from school. But I make big meals like baked chicken, mashed potatoes, sometimes fish recipes that use a lot of ingredients and take a while to bake. I don't make a lot of pasta.
Same for me, innerspin, especially on a weekday. I get home late some evenings so it has to be quick. I don't mind fixing a meal on a Sunday that might take more time. For example, I like taking hours to cook oxtail stew or any meats that cook in the oven. If I have the time, I really do like to cook.
Half an hour when I cook real food... 3-5 minutes with 30 seconds cooling time if I'm not really in the mood (or have leftovers).
As little time as possible. I don't enjoy cooking--it's just something that has to be done.
Once in a blue moon, I get a wild hair, and get in the kitchen and make some kind of all-day dish or bread, or something...but I can count those days in a year on the fingers of one hand with fingers left over.
I really don't like the holidays, because they demand being in the kitchen all day, and the holidays never seem to coincide with the odd days when I do feel like cooking up a storm.... LOL

I need to cook fresh meals every time, I usually have very less leftovers.. Even if i have i do not give them to my children.. Do you agree that leftovers can get fatal with children and the aged?

How long is your typical power nap? I usually need a minimum of an hour, what about you? The reason why I'm asking is because I almost caught myself falling asleep in my chair a minute ago.

Do you prefer to cook your own meals or go out to eat?I enjoy cooking evening meals, but too often I hear people complain that they don't have the time to cook. They would rather spend an hour or more in a restaurant. Does that not take time? Which do you prefer - cooking or dining out - and why?

How do you spend your evening free time?Maybe you live alone or are in a distance relationship. Or the rest of your family/roommates aren't around that much. But after work/school you get home and usually have no required way to spend your time. How do you fill your evenings?
