  1. Good question but no better answer …. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    that question is a regular in our home and finally ma made a spreadsheet with dishes each day…hehe 🙂

    Parul, it’s so good to see your face! 🙂 I thought your blog had gone away for some reason. I guess it’s because you switched to self-hosted.

    Right now, ALL I am eating are leftovers and what I ca scavenge around the kitchen. It’s made for some very creative dinners of late. Hopefully not something we will have to do much longer!

    Oh yes….an eternal question in our house too. I have tried doing a plan, but I just don’t stick to it. And during summer months, I don’t want to be heating up the kitchen because it heats up the whole house. What we need is a grill/bbq. Good luck, I have no clue what we’re eating for tomorrow.

  5. The eternal question. We now have a whiteboard on which we write what we have in the house, what we need to buy and the next day’s meals. Thankfully, in Hyderabad it’s not so easy to get home delivery – at least not as easy as Bandra!

  6. Oh tell me about it! I’m better off when I plan my meals and cook in advance because by the time I get home, I’m too tired to bother sometimes and end up eating badly.

  8. Ohhhh, man! That is a tough question, isn’t it? I’ve been really uninspired when it comes to dinner lately. What did you end up cooking?

  9. Trablogger says:

    Take a break and skip dinner. Dont eat. Go for fasting. Easy! 😉

    A big salad 🙂

    I used to decide each day, but I switched to planning out the week. It means fewer trips to the store. Which saves me time, but I sort of miss planning everything at last minute.

  11. “What to cook” is definitely a big question, and when the answer is “anything light”, I end up making sauted veggies and serve it with bread. 🙂

    I love to plan my meals on weekends for the whole week 🙂 So… Umm.. Let me tell you what you can cook next Monday – a tomato & onion sabzi with groundnuts. Easy and delicious! You can even make a wrap of it!

  13. Rekha says:

    First and foremost, I dislike cooking. I take it on the go and I can’t eat leftovers. So you can imagine the struggle.

  14. My husband and I have a true partnership. He cooks and I watch Chopped & Top Chef so I can tell him where he went wrong!

  15. Hahahaa, mom asks me this question when she really has no idea what to cook. Otherwise the best idea is to make sandwiches. There’s so much to innovate in them! 😁

  16. I end up cooking for myself too and in this particularly bad summer, i get really lazy to be near the heat as food cooks… so its a matter of timing while cooking. Start the cooker, go out of kitchen then peek in at regular intervals and hope its done 😀

    Thankfully, my spouse handles that question. One thing he is not good at, though, is leftovers. Another world wide problem?

  18. Haha…. My advice is to tear down the options, keep the alternatives low in number and make life simple. Like eat only 2 types of dal – eg masoor and arhar. Dilemma solved. One day cook masoor, another day cook arhar and repeat the loop. This is the path to achieve culinary nirvana. Don’t laugh, don’t ignore, okay 😀 😛

  19. This is the most difficult question of all! Oh God, I hate to even think about it..And asking S is no good. He’ll say make anything..Now, if I knew what I wanted to make, I wouldn’t ask him , would I? 😀

  20. rajlakshmi says:

    that’s exactly what I am thinking right now… so hungry and lazy… probably will look for some one pot recipes and cook 😛

    aah! Was this just a blog post or a genuine problem? In our home food is decided on the spot…..

  22. Traci York says:

    Such a lyrical way to ask a question that drives me crazy on a regular basis! I hope you find a yummy solution, and congrats to completing the AtoZ Challenge in April!

  23. Carol Graham says:

    I’m a planner and if I don’t feel like I have made an awesome meal each day, I feel I somehow failed. NONSENSE …..I know. But today, I didn’t have a clue so am making soup! Minestrone!

  24. What should I cook? What should I eat? What should I wear? All these questions are always there right! Inevitable!

  25. I’m in the on-the-go category as well, though not too happy with how often it leads to “pasta with something”. For a (short) while I made plans for 3 days of the week, and the other 2 weekdays would be for leftovers or spontaneous ideas. Worked quite well but I fell off the track…
    Tonight we’ll have leftovers (Spaetzle) with lentils. If you have eggs and flour (and a device like a coarse sieve), you could make the same 😉
