I'm more two than one. Although I have cookbooks, I most times will combine things I read in them, removing things my family don't care for and adding things they do. I get the most enjoyment trying to duplicate something I've eaten or seen at a restaurant. Much of what I cook, comes from family such as my mother-in-laws ravioli and sauce, stuffed onions, tortas. Once in a while I'll make a special trip to the store, but most times I have it on hand.
When I shop I start with the veggies and go from there. I've always enjoyed making meals, but doing the fancier things drew my interest after my kids were older. As little guys it was feed me NOW, not feed me fancy

I am more of a 1 than a 2. I keep trying different flavors so I can become more of a 2.

They call it a loose meat hamburger, "MAIDRITE". They are very good also "CANTEENS".

Another combo of both. I like to look in my fridgefreezer and decide and sometimes I like to browse through my vast collection of cookbooks and recipes for divine inspiration, if you know what I mean!

What is it when you plan menus a week in advance...see what you have on hand and then go buy basics and anything else needed for the menus. A 3..or 4 maybe. With 2 freezers and a full pantry the menus are not written in stone however...and Monday can become Thursday etc...

Like most here it seems, combination of both. I keep my regulars around, chicken breasts and ground turkey in the freezer and all my spices, and shop fairly regularly for veggies and other random things.

I typically take a recipe to get the basics and toss in whatever feels fun, especially with mushrooms and chili powder :)

The best fun has to be some randomness with a chicken breast with some rice concontion and random spices, all with my girlfriend in the kitchen with me.
