Can your dh/so cook?

Can your Dh/So cook at all? What types of things can he make? Is he as good of a cook as you?

My dh can't cook much, he can grill, and make grilled cheese and anything frozen but that is about his limit.  I'm starting school full time with mostly night classes, and I'm trying to figure out how to make sure my family is fed a healthy meal each night. I've already thought of crock pot meals and some make ahead things, but I know that isn't always going to work.  Ideas? Suggestions?

Yes. He's a fantastic cook. He can make pretty much anything. I think he's a better cook than me.

 My wife is learning she is getting really good at baking cooking not so much! I am in the same boat as you are! I see a lot of leftovers and sandwiches coming up! Or breakfast for dinner since that is what she can cook best!

Mine has a few dishes he likes to cook and is good at but he doesn't stray from those few things. 

You could do a lot of casseroles where all he has to do is put them in the oven for a certain amount of time.  There are some really good ones on Betty Crocker's website.

 Give him a recipe and he can cook just about anything! He says I'm a better cook :-)

What about simple stuff like pasta, tacos, casseroles?
