When I pack up leftovers after dinner, I ask if he wants some for lunch the next day. If he says yes, I portion them into smaller containers, rather than packing them together in big containers to reheat at home. Half the time he forgets to take them to work anyway. Usually he prefers to buy his lunch at work or to throw together something light like a sandwich. I don’t make him things specifically for lunches. We are both adults, we both work, I leave the house earlier than he does and come home later, and he knows where the fridge is. 🙂

every single day – i try to mix it up with sushi or grilled chicken at least once per week because he must get bored but he never complains

I wish I could but he’s a very ‘spur of the moment’ eater and never knows what he wants for lunch until it’s lunchtime!

I don’t make his lunch as a routine, but if we have leftovers from dinner I’ll ask him if he wants it for lunch the next day and put some in a container for him (and remind him to take it the next morning). I work from home so always make lunch at home, and he probably buys lunch at work (he works at a hospital with a pretty cheap cafeteria) 75% of the time and takes leftovers 25% of the time.

I pack his lunch probably 90% of the time, but it’s usually leftovers. I do the same thing for my SIL and her BF, if he’s there, and occasionally make lunches for my nieces (if they aren’t buying). I also do almost all of the cooking, most of the cleaning, and most of the laundry for the house. I’m home, and it’s not a hardship for me. My SIL has been letting us live here rent-free while DH started a new job and we got settled in the area, so it’s the least I can do.

No. He usually comes home for lunch… or aleast he did before he started his new job last week. Now he goes out. But that is about to stop. We will be making lunches for both of us. When I work nights I usually eat at about 2-3 am. Since McDonalds is the only thing open you can imagine my diet. So, to keep us BOTH on track, I plan on making us both make lunches. Which will probably end up me making our lunches…

He makes breakfast, I make dinner. We fend for ourselves when it comes to lunch. I love him, but I’m not his mother. He’s a big boy and he can make a sandwich just as well as I can.

Wow, I’m surprised how many women make their husband’s lunch. I don’t, in case that wasn’t obvious :).

Neither do I! We both work, we take care of figuring out lunch for ourselves 🙂 I also don’t do his laundry. All virtue of marrying later in life (31) and having learned from my mother who did EVERYTHING and knowing that I did not want that

This. My mom did all the cooking in our home. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner, 4-5 days a week with leftovers on the other days and dinners out very very rarely (like a handful of times a year). She wasn’t a stay-at-home mom. My dad can’t boil pasta without detailed instructions. So if she’s sick, she’s still the one cooking. If she’s out shopping with me, she’ll say things like “we better head home and feed dad”. I didn’t want a husband who had to rely on me that much for something as basic as meals.
Hubby and I split the cooking about evenly. I cook on the weekends more, he cooks in the middle of the week more (since I get home much later), and some nights neither of us feels like cooking, so we go out, order in, or throw something quick and easy together out of whatever’s in the fridge. We fend for ourselves for breakfasts and lunches on weekdays. When we dated and took turns staying over at each-others apartments, the person “hosting” would cook. I never cooked in his kitchen until I moved in.

i also do all the grocer shoppping and cooking for all meals at our house. i feel like with how hard he is working, i might as well show appreciation by making his lunch and puting his clothes away. sometimes i get up at 3:45 with him to make him coffeee!!!

I usually cook and before I was pregnant, I’d automatically set aside a portion for his lunch the next day. But now we just eat and he handles packing his lunch from leftovers.

Most of the time I do. Fiance does most of the dinner cooking in our house and so, in turn, I usually clear the table. It’s easy enough to just dump the left overs into a container for him to take to work.
On nights that I cook dinner, we usually flip flop roles and he does the clearing and packing.

Wow, the number of women who DO really surprises me. I thought that was gone with my mom’s generation!

Maybe 2 days a week on average, when I make it for both of us.
