My husband does not cook. When we first met he had a freezer full of frozen dinners.
He CAN make spaghetti but not much else. When he retired I thought I would be able to leave a recipe for him and he would be able to follow it and make dinner so we could eat when I got home from work.
That did not work so well. Just the other day, I asked him to put the fish and tator tots in the oven to bake. 20 mins later, the tater tots and 2 of the 3 pieces of fish were done. But the 3rd piece of fish was still bleeding! I could not figure this out - all 3 pieces of fish were the same size, cooked in the same oven for the same amount of time. SO this just proves DH CAN'T cook! LOL
However, this week I am home from work due to pneumonia. So I've been sitting in the kitchen and "supervising" while he does the cooking. He seems to be enjoying cooking more knowing I am there to "help" as needed. He even made his favorite muffins yesterday using the food processor - a kitchen appliance he was afraid of in the past.
I think DH is gaining confidence working in the kitchen so perhaps the old dog can learn new tricks after all.
