who decides dinner?

I'm a SAHM to three and expecting our 4th in approx 5 weeks. My dh works long hours outdoors so I get that he's exhausted and wants dinner on the table when he gets home. I TRY to do this for him however, he doesn't work a set schedule so he doesn't come home at the same time every evening...though I usually aim for about 5pm. I usually plan and have dinner made or get it delivered by this time every weeknight but on the weekends I EXPECT his input. He doesn't work weekends and he usually has his own opinions about what he wants or doesn't want.
Am I supposed to plan, cook, serve and clean up EVERY NIGHT?

We usually decide the day before together. If i want help I usually say well if i do this can you do that? Like if I fill the dishwasher will you wash the pots and pan?

Yep I plan, cook and serve every night. Sometimes Dh will have an opinion on what he wants to eat, but thats rare.

In our house. Whoever cooks doesn't have to clean. Although I pitch in anyway lol my df isn't picky about food. Usually I have it ready when he gets home but sometimes I wait and ask him to help cook since I help clean

I plan out a weekly menu every Monday. It makes it easy if I just write down what we're having each night and then go shopping that day for the ingredients. I have dinner ready every evening at 6.

I choose the dinners, cook and serve them. DH does the dishes.
