A lot of you know my kids are grown. 34 and 28yo. So I have no kids that I have to cook for/take care of. My DH knows how to cook, he cooks as good as I do. So I have come to the conclusion the past couple of years that I do not need to cook as often. He can help.
So I have been slowly getting him to cook dinners. Well he has noticed, finally. And is not happy about it. He has said he noticed I am not cooking every single day. I told him this.
The kids are grown their is no reason for me to always cook. We can wing it some nights. And on top of that he never helps in the kitchen, as in cleaning it. I have complained about this, with no success. I just told him do not complain about the kitchen being dirty. I will clean it when I want to clean it. Sense you never help.
So ladies, what do you think about this?

Heck, I only cook for my kids! They eat at 5 or 5:30 pm. My DH gets home at 6:30. He likes to play with the kids & watch TV. Then when they are in bed we make sandwiches, heat up pizza, have some frozen snacks that you make in the toaster. We hang out, eat on the couch & fall asleep. My Mom cooked every night & my Dad was home by 5. After all the kids moved out she stopped cooking everyday too. They got take out or had leftovers. There is NO reason YOU should have to do all the cooking. If he wants dinner cooked every night then make up a schedule & split it maybe. My DH BBQ's that's it. BTW, I make my DH a big hero sandwich every day to take for lunch so he isn't that hungry when he comes home. Maybe make big lunches instead.
