Who do you cook for?

Who do you cook for and how often? Over the years I've moved many times and it has changed. Right now, on a day to day basis, I cook for my husband and me. We eat out maybe once a week. I fix us supper the other 6 days, and we lunch from leftovers and such. Once or twice a month I have folk over for dinner or brunch. When I lived in Florida (and when I visit there), I cook for my parents, sisters, nieces, nephews, various other relatives and anyone who happens to be hanging around. Who do you cook for on a regular basis, and who else?

I cook for my husband and sons.Day in day out.
Occasionally I'll invite my neighbor across the street over,he's a widower.Or I'll just make up a nice dinner and take it to him.

If your with me that's great. If not. Get out of my way.

I cook dinner for my wife, daughter, and son. It is not an every night thing. Something I get home to late so DW feeds the kids and herself and I fend for myself when I get home.

Occasionally I cook for friends and family when they come over or we go to their places.

i cook for dh and me all/most meals, we may eat out at a restaurant once or twice a year, or not. We routinely have friends over for dinner, usually two at a time, and we go to friends houses' for dinner too.

DW does 99% of the cooking, her's is a helluva lot better than mine :) Though I am almost always her right hand in the kitchen and sometimes she will just say "You cook tonight." I don't mind, I enjoy cooking, more so as her "sous" chef than as the "exec" because she can do things in her sleep that I haven't even grasped yet

i cook mainly for me & jake; we often cook together, too. like spaghetti & meatballs- he loves his recipe, so we have those, i cook the sauce & pasta.
we'll usually dine at a restaurant 1 or 2 times a month.

I cook for myself, except on the occasion that I have company. I love to cook, but HATE to wash dishes or eat leftovers many times, so I don't always cook. I order out with co-workers. Most of the dishes I crave are hard to scale down and microwaving(I work nights) or freezing is not a option as it makes it soggy.

I cook for dh and myself most of the time. He can only cook eggs in a few different ways. We eat with friends sometimes and some eat with us and we eat out usually at least once a week maybe twice. We'd both rather eat at home.

Cook for just little ole me now, but occasionally I'll prepare a meal for a friend who is feeling blue or is not well.
