I said 5 because it's always at least that many, but about 50% of the time it's 6. Usually Friday night I just can't bring myself to do it so that ends up being our eat out/take-out night. Sometimes Saturday too, depending on what's going on. We usually don't have enough left over after a meal to feed all of us again. Leftovers usually get eaten by someone for lunch. I really dislike cooking too. When my boys were born & I started staying home, my mother sat me down & said "look, if you're going to be home all day, even if you do nothing else all day long, you must have dinner on the table when dh gets home from work. Mark my words." So I never tested her theory because I figured she had good reason for making such an issue of it. When the kids got old enough to eat solids, my motivation changed.
