I don't cook the same thing, but I do tend to stick to themes for the days of the week for a large part of the year. Soup/Stew on Wednesday is a Lenten tradition that has expanded to all three of the cooler seasons of the year.

The last few years I've been doing soup Sundays which also becomes soup Monday and lunch for a few days.

I tend to make fish on Fridays because I like a lighter meal before the weekend. If we're eating out or eating junk type foods it tends to be on Saturday. I also grew up eating meatless meals during lent: macaroni and cheese, tuna salad or grilled cheese and tomato soup.

I try to do a big dinner salad once a week--usually Wednesday or Thursday.

I can't until it cools off a bit more for soup Sundays to start. It makes cooking during the week easier.

Does anyone cook the same meal on the same day every week? And why?

I will be bored to death........I cook a different meal every single day......

I've cooked spaghetti every Monday and Thursday for the last thirty-five years.

Why? I like spaghetti. That and predictability.

It's actually become the family joke, but I'm OK with it.

I remember some school lunches

Wednesday was enchilada day
Thursday was hamburger day
Friday was fish sticks day

I guess they mixed it up on Monday and Tuesday.

We've had Spaghetti Wednesday at our house for 30 years or so. My husband grew up with that and so we just do it too. My husband loves spaghetti and it's fine with me because we know what's for dinner that night and it is one of his nights in the kitchen.

The other night that we have the same is Saturday and that is homemade pizza night. The pizzas are always different and my husband makes a really good crust. It is fun deciding what will go on the pizza each week, even different cheeses.

So two out of seven nights are planned. I don't think that's too boring. Works for us.

When I was growing up, Friday was the beans day.

But we don't do that anymore. we have tacos on any day, not always Tuesdays. I think I'll be too boring to have the same dish on the same day over and over.
