I voted variable myself, but think I spend a whole load of time in the kitchen.
Breakfast is easy- cereal or just toast or bagels; lunch is normally extras from the previous night's dinner, or if there are no extras, I make a quick noodle soup or smth. Dinner is our main meal, despite reading 1000 times that it's supposed to be the lightest meal....
It usu takes me abt 45-60 min to prepare the vegetables- chop, mince, grate, slice, julienne, marinate, etc. Actual cooking can be 20-40 mins, depending on what's on the menu.
Then I try to make my own bread. And I try to always have some healthy home-made snacks like muffins, apricot bars, or cookies around. And once a week I cook up a big pot of vegetable stock.
Then some days dh comes home and I tell him, "I'm on cooking strike today.", then either he'll make some quick ravioli, or we put a pizza in the oven, or we just have some bread with cheese or some home-made spread. We hardly eat out or take out.
I enjoy cooking n see it as an nurturing act, but some days I feel I'm just stuck there!
