Cooking.. do you do it because you like to, or because you have to?

I only cook because I have to, before our money went sour we would eat out A LOT. I don't enjoy being in the kitchen any longer than I have to. My husband says it is a shame, b/c I can cook,.

  • Most of the time, because i LIKE to. If you really don't like to cook....have you considered a crock pot? Very little effort goes into it, and the recipes now are a lot better than they used to be a thousand years ago.

  • I enjoy cooking. Today I made Shortbread cookie dough (will make cookies on Tuesday). Chicken Fajitas, Spaghetti sauce, Roasted Cauliflower soup and Homemade Molasses Bread. Tomorrow I'll assemble 2 lasagnas and taco meat. I am having 12 people in for the next week- Should be fun!

  • I love to cook! Last night I made stir fry, tonight was leftover night (blech), and tomorrow night I am making chicken pot pie. I used to do it because I had to and my cooking entailed opening a box, adding ground beef, and water. Now that I have learned to cook, I love trying out new recipes. I hate cleaning up too. Rule in my house is if I cook, my husband cleans. If he cooks, he cleans. Win Win.
