  • I cook for my DH on the days he works and he cooks on his days off. I also take breaks on his days off.

  • Don't you know how to "meal stack"? You can cook several meals at one time if you plan ahead. That's what I do, and I have a home-cooked meal every night, but I don't have to cook every day!

  • Cooking is just ONE of many responsibilities in a house. We don't really care who cooks so long as the division of ALL the responsibilities feels fair.

  • I cook all the meals, I am the stay at home mom and he busts his butt to provide an income. He comes home so worn out that I feel kinda bad for him and don't mind making sure he and the kids have a good balanced dinner . We live in a rural area where ordering out or eating out is not an option

  • I enjoy cooking very much. I love knowing that I am feeding my family fresh veggies and I absolutely adore that they aren't getting pre processed boxed junk.

    My husband does cook as well. He was raised by his German grandparents who taught him how to make potato dumplings, pies, peirogie and all kinds of other amazing food. If I don't feel like cooking, I don't have to.
