Yes it does. I like to do special meals butI dont like to cook everyday. Huz isnt here right now but when he was I got tired of being the one responsible for deciding what we ate. Even if I didnt cook. Huz will eat anything. Heck he'll eat stuff I wont eat. But still it gets old.

Have you told him this. Maybe he thinks you like to cook. Or worse maybe he thinks you dont want to give up control of the kitchen. is there something he fixes that you really like. Ask him to make it for you. A lot of men arent self starters. They have to be primed.

I think that is going to be my New Years resolution! I love what you said about being primed! Just like a pump,lol! Either he gets busy, or he is gonna be eating a whole lot of rice, which he dislikes.
Thanks, Cecilia_Rose, have a great New Years!

Does anyone else have this problem?
It depends on what I've cooked. There are some things, like my lasagna, or my Mexican dishes, that I like a great deal, and have no problem eating them. On the other hand, if I fix something like Swedish Meatballs, well, that's strictly for my husband, as I don't even like them, (although, he assures me I make them just like his step-grandmother, whose recipe I use). Some things, like stew, I will eat occasionally, but sometimes I'll skip it.

Now, when it comes to baking, which I like to do better than cooking, there's not much I'll pass up, more's the pity!

Cooking for one doesn't really seem worth it. I'm trying to have people over for meals so that the effort isn't wasted. I like sampling other peoples cooking and very much enjoy pot luck dinner parties.

You're right, Jinxie, cooking for one is no fun.

I need to find some hungry friends, I guess.

I love my own cooking! I also enjoy the rituals that go along with cooking. The selection and shopping of the ingredients, the chopping, the tasting and the adjustment of the spices. But I still enjoy eating out.

I prefer to do my own cooking.
I don't like strangers touching my food.
I hate to eat in restaurants.

Basically I cook out of necessity. When my kids still lived at home I did enjoy cooking for them. Especially my son---he could eat a ton and loved my cooking. But I've never really eaten much of my own cooking except out of necessity. I think I am burned-out. Cooking has been mainly my job. Seems the food all taste the same even though it is all different. My husband does cook now and again NOW since he works from home. I enjoy eating what he cooks. Just to many years of having to figure out "what" to have for dinner, shopping for it, cooking it and then cleaning up after it. Like any other job some people just get tired of it. My husband did give me a year off so to speak. He cooked lots during last year then we moved and had to eat out for 6 months while we remodeled our kitchen. That is probably the ONLY reason I have been even getting somewhat interested in cooking again. Don't know how long it will last though...

I understand what you are getting at. I do most of the cooking in my family now. Yes I enjoy my food but I think it almost always tastes better when my husband cooks. I think it is a mental thing for me. Knowing he put the effort into the meal and I didn't have to do anything.
