What do you usually cook for dinner?
I was reading the newspaper today and came across an article about cooking dinner. According to research - the average British mother relies on just nine different meals to feed her family. Nine in 10 mothers polled admitted cooking the same meals over and over again while one in four made the same meals on the same day of the week. Over half (55 per cent) cook at least two meals to keep the whole family happy!
The research found that the average mother has eight cookery books in the house, but has attempted just five recipes. I must own at least 50 and must admit I don’t use most - I just like looking at the pictures!! In fact I gave away 4 cookbooks on the weekend as I have never used them and I thought someone else might! Top nine meals relied upon by UK mums
- Spaghetti Bolognese
- Roast dinner
- Shepherd’s Pie/Cottage Pie
- Pasta dish
- Meat and two veg
- Sausages and chips/mash
I would make numbers 1 to 7 quite often, but I do love salad in summer. What are your favourite meals? And do you cook different meals for members of your family?
