    Default What time do you cook dinner?

    Cooking tonights dinner now got me thinking when everyone cooks dinner?
    Ideally I would love to get it done in the morning each day that I don't work but it is not always easy to do. Otherwise it is a mad rush at 5pm when DD is getting ratty but this is what usually happens.

    So when do you cook dinner?

    I'm on holidays now so have been doing some slow cooked meals starting at lunch time. Last night I started cooking at 4. I love it.

    When I am working it's the mad rush at 6 pm.

    Depends on my day and what I'm cooking between 3 and 5 normally. if I'm doing a casserole or if I'm being super organised I start at 3.

    Around 6 however sometimes dh and I like spicy food that the kids won't eat so then we feed them at 6 and then cook ours after so we eat around 7.

    I use the slow cooker often, so get it on by 8am at the latest. Trying a different approach now and cooking all our meals on a Sunday. I write the day on top then freeze.

    I generally start cooking at 4.30ish so the kids eat around 5.30-6.

    Depends what it is though. If its a one-pot meal that can be reheated then I'll cook it sometime earlier in the day

    Usually 5 unless it's something that requires cooking earlier.

    Lately it has been around 5;30 to 6 for a 6;30pm dinner. I would like to get back into the once a fortnight cooking, I have been a bit slack lately. I am about to go and put on a piece of corned beef in the slow cooker for tonight's dinner.
