Logical's longing for fried chicken thread and the dog poop burrito thread got me to wondering how much real cooking is going on out there? For each response I'm mean made from scratch by someone who normally lives in your house.

Poll to follow. Mark the foods that in that last year have been prepared from scratch in your home. Could be by you or someone you live with.

I clicked 'none of the above' but I probably should have clicked 'pork/beef roast'. All of the other foods are made in a factory, though.

Fried chicken
Meat loaf
pot roast
mashed potatoes
beef stew


Pancakes... the mix that comes in a box. Does that count?

How do you stand cookies not made from scratch? I feel like I'm cheating if I used store bought dough. ANd part of what makes fresh baked cookies so good is the love that gets thrown in during preparation. :)

I make a pretty mean lasagna, too.

I thought this thread was going to be a long-winded diatribe on the statistics involved in penalties awarded to and against teams playing at home.

Nah, I'm pretty sure it's the sugar, chocolate, and all that stuff.

I assumed that using store bought noodles excluded lasagna.

Oh, c'mon. It's not like you bought a cow, slaughtered it, and made the hamburger meat yourself, too.

Yeah, there are some grey areas as to what constitutes made from scratch. Pancake mix is not made from scratch, IMO. Dried store-bought pasta is okay. For pies, the crust has to be made from scratch. Cookies definitely can't use store-bought dough.

All of them EXCEPT fried chicken.
I just don't make fried chicken.

I substituted ricotta and spinach stuffed shells for lasagne...I do either or.
But my mom would kill me for buying sauce in a jar,Classico, being Italian.

Lasagna is my specialty. None better. Thick, cheesy, rich. Heart attack waiting to happen.

Homemade lasagna on occasion. Roast beef in the crock pot, skin-on mashed potatoes and meat loaf more often. The Mrs watches Food Network a lot and comes up with all kinds of good stuff. She makes killer chicken divan too.

I've done that a couple times. I'll never do it again though, way too much work.

All except for fried chicken.

I defer to the Colnel's expertise in that area.

Between me and my wife, a lot. But we cant cook as often as we would like because we are both so busy. I cook the grill stuff, roast and can cook fried chicken. She does the cassaroles, pastas and the complicated stuff.

I was trying to pick things that were made from scratch in the vast majority of homes, say 35-40 years ago, before all the take-out and convenience foods became wide spread. Bread probably didn't fall in that catagory, cause everyone was eating Wonder Bread.

It appears that home cooking has not completely vanished from the American landscape. The results are better than I would have guessed. However, I fear for the state of homade pie in this country, with only about 1/3 of you getting any.
