I plan when I have guests or when I'm missing ingredients. Sometimes I'll improvise though if I don't want to wait. Mostly decide the same day though.

Decide the same minute as I don't really cook ever (don't even have an oven) and just eat grab and go stuff like fruit etc.

Decide them either that day or a few days before.

I usually wait until my husband tells me.

Unless I've been to the butcher in the last few days, he does a lot of the cooking. Also, he often asks for certain things and then brings the ingredients for me to make it. If I really have a taste for something, I'll tell him and he'll get the ingredients so one or both will cook it.

I would prefer to plan meals in advance, but my husband is weird about being spontaneous depending on what he had for lunch and what he "feels like eating" that day.

I will plan out the basics for the week. like what kind of meat and veggies to purchase. But the meals dont get planed until I am getting ready to cook. They all depend on how much time I have to get a meal cooked and the kids in bed on time.

same here. A lot of the time we look in the fridge and freezer, and whatever looks good, we make lol. Sometimes we will have things planned but not very often.

This is where I am OCD. I have a set menu for each day of the week. Monday-turkey burgers, salad and baked chips...Tuesday-chicke n burritos, green beans and brown rice...I'm sure you get the picture. I try to leave Sundays open to be determined on a weekly basis. It helps give a little variety.

It sure make shopping super easy and thank heavens I have a patient hubby who doesn't mind how anal I am

I try to plan it out on Sunday. My partner and I try to coordinate cooking so that we can bring lunches to work. We also try switching of nights that we cook so that we feel like we are cooking less throughout the week.

Pretty much both. Either we have them set out already with all the ingredient in the fridge, or my Husband tells me he is the mood for a particurlar dish.
