    No, he makes his own.

    No, he buys lunch.

    No, he makes my lunch!

    Yes, every day!

    I do on occasion.

    @daybyday:  It’s a small way for me to show love and do an act of service for him, just like when he gets up early to let the dog out or takes out the trash for me. Maybe it is old-fashioned, but it works for us. 🙂

     FI started his own business and works from home and I work a couple blocks away. I come home for lunch every day and make lunch for the two of us. Sometimes he’s so busy on the phone he doesn’t even get a break until right before I’m about to head back to work. I worry that if I don’t come home and force him to eat, he’d work thru the whole day and never take a break!

    Idk how I ended up on a two year old post? This site is difficult to go to the next page of posts on a phone without going all the way to the end! sigh

    I work full-time but I make his lunch the night before (unless he has a lunch meeting).  I also make dinner every single night.  I think he has made dinner twice and both times he messed it up – once a boxed lasagna and once just baked tilapia.  I always give him shit because he leaves before I do and doesn’t eat breakfast – so I always joke that he just doesn’t eat if I don’t make it for him.

    I am kind of a Stay-At-Home Wife but I also work for my dad once or twice a week so I have a lot more free time than my DH so I make his lunch everyday and he really appreciates it.

    I prefer to make all of our meals since I’m a big believer that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but, he did make his own half of the time. When not working….best believe I was stuntin in that kitchen. 😉

    He gets up at 5 am, I work second shift.  So no, I’m not going to wake up after 3 or 4 hours of sleep to pack him a lunch.

    I do make DH’s lunch every day, but my situation is a little unique.  DH is disabled and I work fron home, so I make meals for both of us every day.  He’s always very grateful, which makes it worth it 🙂

    If we are eating separately/different things – either at home or work – then we prepare our own. If we eat the same thing then I usually cook/we do it together.

    I will make him food (that Im not eating) on a Sunday if he has worked a long day and needs to eat as soon as he gets home or if he has been to running club and I am at home. 

     

    One time he was on the phone to his mum and she asked him what he was doing:

    “Making a sandwich”

    “Why isn’t ….. making it for you”

     

    My thoughts: Because he’s a grown man and can make his own sandwich!

    I used to mamke his lunch and breakfast everyday.  Now, when I make dinner I try to make sure to set aside enough for his lunch and have it packed and ready for him to grab the next morning.  He gets up early and most days I don’t get up with him, I am still in bed when he leaves.  So if I don’t have a lunch packed for him, I don’t make him lunch.  I am a sahm too.  

    But like I said, i try to make sure he has some leftovers ready the next am to take for lunch.

    Yes! I make breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Usually for breakfast I pack him muffins (quick to make and he likes them), and for lunch sandwiches and sometimes a little side. He works full-time and is in school full-time, his days are so long and I like knowing that I am sending him off with good food. The other bonuses are that I LOVE cooking, and it saves us a ton of money.

    I only make his lunch if we have leftovers from dinner that he’s taking to work. Otherwise, he eats sandwiches almost everyday and he keeps everything in one cooler that he just grabs each morning so I don’t need to make it.

    I would make it everyday if he asked me to, though.
