monsterly:  We both do! 

He’s a much better cook than I am but I think he’s trying to be encouraging which is super cute. We used to eat out alot but since we found out I am an auto immune disease we are mostly sticking to eating at home and eating clean. Big changes!!

I cook- but I like to. Darling Husband is responsible for procuring one meal a week- so that’s the night we get Chinese!

monsterly:  my fiance cooks, I do the dishes…. but he too uses max dishes. Maybe it’s a male thing.

I do all the cooking (besides maybe boiling an egg or making a grilled cheese if I am not feeling well) and Darling Husband is suppose to handle the dishes but a lot of times last nights dishes are still sitting around so I have to do them before I can start dinner which really annoys me…. I don’t usually mind the cooking but the cleaning before cooking really gets to me

I travel for my work and I even leave him ready to microwave/bake in the oven meals for when I am gone

My fiance and I can both cook, but he’s actually better at cooking than I am. I’m the “extreme baker”…I will make 50 cake pops, and there’s only two of us. So we end up giving 40 of them to family and friends lol.

But at the moment, my mother in law to be does most of the cooking, dinner-wise. It’s just easier. She cooks dinner for her and her husband, and makes extra for us. I’m a full-time student and often have class or have a giant load of homework and I often don’t have time to get a dinner together (my fiance and father in law to be work togoether at the same place and so they carpool, which is another reason why it’s easier for my mother in law to be to make dinners).

However once we move into our new place that actually has a kitchen (our current place is an efficiency, and is very small, around 250sqft), I will start making dinners and other meals during the week and weekend. I’m so excited! Our current place has absolutely no counterspace whatsoever, which also makes it almost impossible to get things together for a meal. I hate it.

It’s mostly me who cooks, which is fine and I don’t mind. The only thing that SUCKS is trying to figure out WHAT to cook. It seems im always recycling the same recipes, especially ones that are easier to make during the week and aren’t going to take hours.

In the summer FL loves to cook on the grill so I’m off the hook a lot during that time which is really nice. He enjoys cooking but gets home so late from work it’s really impossible for him to do it.

We usually go out to eat or order take out on Friday and Saturday which is a nice break for me, and Sunday’s I can spend more time cooking and make more complicated recipes which I like to do, especially when I have tons of time! 


PS OP UR meatloaf looked sooooo yummmmmmm

monsterly:  Him, definintely. It’s not that I can’t cook, he just enjoys it more.Plus, I usually don’t go to the gym until later in the evening (5:30ish), so by the time I get home it can be 8ish (depending on the class)… so he’ll have something ready so we eat together.

We eat a lot of the same things most weeks, so they’re not super fancy/complicated meals. It works for us and his food is good!

We do go out to eat most weekends, especially Friday and Saturday nights.

I do most of the cooking because I love it.. He helps out, and always cleans up after me.. So I can’t complain.
