    I'm in my final year at uni and since the start of term I cant find the time, or energy to cook from scratch and probably get takeaway once a week or buy 2 or 3 ready meals to see me through!

    I haven't eaten a ready meal in 9 years.

    At uni I lived off things I could make huge batches of then I just needed to heat it up. Finding a spare hour once or twice a week wasn't hard.

    Ready meals maybe once every few months, takeaways a couple of times a year (not counting McDonalds, have it once every two months or so)
    I'm not at uni though, I would probably get more ready meals if I had to cook every day :rolleyes:

    Takeaways - around maybe 2 per week. Maybe more if we're in the money lol
    Ready meals - 4 times a week, mainly for the convenience since I am lazy

    I get takeaway once a week at best, when my student loan can afford it! Also too much curry makes you fat, as the health shows on ITV tell you, and I believe them, yup :lolwut: !

    Ready meals - almost never at uni. More at home tho (maybe 3 times a week, but they are normally the more healthy ones)

    Takeaway - maybe once every 2 weeks at uni (including eating out). Every 1-2 weeks at home

    Ready meals never, they are too small and tasteless- I always do my meat or fish seperately from the rice/chips/potatoes. I do usually go for something easy to put in the oven though as I don't like actual cooking. Takeaway once a fortnight maybe at uni. No

    A similar amount to you - since starting teacher training (now in my first year of teaching) I like you just feel I don't have any energy left. When I cook I usually go for something very basic as well. Apart from in the holidays when I go crazy being able to cook all these amazing things! Well, they would be amazing if I could cook well lol. It also doesn't help that neither me or my partner drive and I begrudge paying for delivery, so we don't get to a big supermarket often.

    However the ready meals I have are usually M&S and they are I think a bit better than the standard ones. At least, when you look at the ingredients they are all the things you would put in if you cooked the dish from scratch, rather than a load of things which you have no idea what they are for.

    You don't like cooking?! :shock:
    I like to cook myself, it is the cleaning afterwards I hate!!!

    I would gladly cook for anyone so long as they do the cleaning afterwards!

    It's so much effort, I can't chop things properly and I struggle when you have to cook different things in different ways for different times. Spagetti Bolognese is my idea of a nightmare dish to make.
