My husband's favorite meals seem to be anything that takes several hours to cook. Homemade pizzas, carne guisada tacos with homemade tortillas, pulled pork, brisket, stuff like that. I cook that way at least once a week. His favorite quicker meals are chicken alfredo, pigs in a blanket (with homemade dough and the little sausages with cheese), chicken nuggets (I bread the chicken breast tenders and bake them instead of buying fried nuggets), spaghetti and meatballs, mac and cheese, homemade chinese food with jasmine rice...he has a very physically active job so he doesn't really have to count calories.

He likes anything Italian--spaghetti, baked ziti, eggplant parm, chicken parm. He does most of the cooking, except for the eggplant parm, which is my specialty.

Mine loves lasagna! I have made it maybe twice in the last year for him.

I really don't know what his favorite thing I cook is. Maybe, carne guisada. I know he's been asking for it a lot lately, but I've not been in the mood to cook it.

my husband's is a spinach-stuffed pork roast, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn muffins and apple tarts. I don't make this meal all that often though, maybe four or five times a year.

Mine is barbecue baby back ribs, a baked potato with sour cream, chives AND butter and homemade pineapple coleslaw.

I had a craving for oxtail stew last week and made some in my crockpot for my father-in-law. Oxtails are so expensive I don't buy them that much anymore.

It is ridiculously expensive isn't it. For the same reason I don't buy that often either.

I think my husband's favorite is lemon pepper chicken. That makes me happy, because it's an easy thing to make when I don't feel like putting much effort into dinner, but don't want to "graze" either.

A close runner-up would be panang curry chicken. I add squash, carrots and green beans to it, which makes the prep take a while. I hadn't made it for a pretty long time until last week, and he kept raving about it. I guess I need to make it more often.

Oh, I just remembered some fajitas I made recently, that we both went gaga for. I marinated some skirt steak with lime juice, garlic, jalapeno, cilantro, cumin, salt and pepper (all pureed together in a blender) for about 7 hours before grilling. It was so delicious we ate some without all the fajita fixings.

DH's favorite meal is spaghetti with Sunday gravy. We just got back from our large shopping trip to Costco and he is already talking about it.
