Weekly Poll: Which meal is your least favorite to fix?
What is your favorite meal to fix? Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner or Snack?Some people LOVE to cook no matter what time of day, what meal. But others, like myself....hate, I mean DREAD, hate, despise making lunch! I can come up with yummy creations for dinner, we are not huge breakfast people but I can make a mean breakfast...but lunch is my arch nemesis! UGH! And the funny thing is, it was and still is for Grandmother as well. She raised 3 girls and dreaded making lunch because it seemed a PITA to her!
I love planning dinner, being as creative as I can for dinner within my family's taste buds!LOL
Being a homeschool Mom and a childcare provider....lunch is a daily OMG what will I fix thing. UGH!
I do it, I come up with it...but sometimes I feel like really....that is what you get! EAT IT!LOL
So....what is the meal you dislike making the most? Why?

I said Breakfast, although I love breakfast foods and love making it. The problem is since The Children have entered the picture, they apparently always wake up STARVING and have to be fed immediately. So if we get around to make a lazy weekend breakfast, we still have to feed them first, then they don't want to eat...throws off the whole day. Like the OP, I love making dinner, working on something creative and delicious. But I am totally cool with lunch as well.

Breakfast. I could have eggs and toast every morning. Why?? Oh WHY!? Why can they not be happy with eggs and toast every morning like me. I don't like making pancakes or waffles. They never taste good unless I eat as I make them because they're all cold by the time I get to eat.Tamarin - 7, Lemur - 6, Howler - 4, and Capuchin - 1.

I will quite happily make breakfast. I make a lot of breakfast foods over the weekend (which is also when I happily fix brunch if everyone is willing to wait till I roll out of bed at 9-ish) and then let the kids nosh on those all week long. I don't fix breakfasts during the week unless it's a weird week or it can go in the crock pot overnight. I adore making dinner. Lunch? Fugettaboutit. The most I'll do is boil some water for pasta/noodles that I can toss with pesto, and even that's a rare occurrence. Mostly it's every boy/girl/man/woman for him/herself. I love that my kids are old enough to make their own meals. Not making lunch is awesome.---

I hate making lunch because it's too much food too close to breakfast. We've reached a point of lunch-eradication here...we sleep until 10 - 10:30am (yes, we're morning slackers), do 'buggles' until 11-11:30am and then finally roll out for breakfast by noon. Yep, we're THAT bad. Once breakfast is done, no one gets munchies until 4pm...if it's bad enough, I make DD a snack. Then we do the dinner thing at 6p or so. It's actually better if we eat a little after 7p cause then no one is looking to graze later in the evening.
Sometimes I really miss the days when I lived alone and could do a bagel for breakfast, a bagel for lunch, and a salad or soup for dinner. It was so much easier and cheaper then. *sigh* I guess it's worth the trade off. BTW, the cold waffle/pancake issue can be eased by setting the oven to 'warm' and parking the finished waffles/pancakes in there until the whole stack is done. They're not quite super fresh and primo, but it works. And I always get the last one off the griddle...if I cooked it, I get first choice.

Supper because its the only meal I make, usually. The kids make their own breakfast and lunch, which is usually an assortment of raw veg, fruit, sandwiches, left overs if there are any, and hummous.

I generally dislike cooking midday so lunch used to be a problem. Now I just make sure I cook a double batch for dinner so that there is leftovers for us al to eat for lunch the next day. So many meals actually taste better the next day once the flavours have a chance to mature.

I can't stand to cook at all. So I chose other, as in all of the above! I don't mind very occasionally baking goodies. I am vegan so usually it's not an issue :-)

I love to cook, but I hate making lunch.
By 11 a.m. - 12 p.m., I am exhausted! Morning is the most hectic time of day in the house, and lunch is the last "step" in my morning routine of homeschooling and cleaning. When lunch time comes around, I just want to collapse and watch a movie, or read a book. Making lunch, whether it's something simple or a little more involved, is the last thing I want to do once the house is clean, the work is entered into Homeschool Tracker, and the books are put away.
I think my son should be the one making lunch for us. He's got the easy life.Wendy

I voted dinner (what we in the south call supper) because it's really the only meal I cook. Breakfast is easy stuff -- toast, bagels, yogurt, cereal, etc. Lunch is either a sandwich or something reheated from last night's dinner. So no real cooking for either of those.Myra
