You've Got To Love A Man Who Likes To Cook

Canada
December 3, 2015 8:14am CST
This morning when I woke up my husband had already left for the gym. I made coffee and headed to the family room to return comments and other notification here on myLot. I still have a lot to go through but I'll be going to the gym shortly. When he got home he asked me if I wanted some breakfast and of course I said YES. Anything would be better than my usual English Muffin with peanut butter on top. In a few minutes he called me to the kitchen. I set the table and enjoyed breakfast with him. He made spinach and cottage cheese omelets, hash browns from scratch, raisin toast, and small breakfast sausages. Do I have to mention it was delicious? In another life, when we first married he was in the restaurant business. I am a lucky woman. Are there any more lucky women out there? Have a great day and I'll see you all later.

Afraid I am the main cook here, but that's okay. I like my cooking and I know that the cook washed her hands!

I am a lucky woman because I have a wonderful husband, but he prefers to let me cook. I am the cook in the house.

There is noting wrong with that. I think most of us married well.

@PainsOnSlate When he gets through, the kitchen is covered in grease and corn meal! But it's worth it.

This makes me laugh. Why Well my daughter never wanted to learn how to cook. I use to ask her how she planned on eating. She said if she can't find a man to cook for her then she'll keep looking. She did tell me that the man she did marry would have to do the cooking. Hahaha she was true to her word. Her husband is a great cook and yes he does most of the cooking. Now that her daughter is older she has turned out to be quite a good cook herself. So my daughter is lucky she has 2 people who can cook for her now.

@PainsOnSlate Yes with all the stuff that is basically prepare in the stores it shouldn't be too hard to cook. But here on the islands I don't buy food like this and basically cook from scratch it is so much better for you.

Oh yes, I love a guy that can cook, especially if he does it well. If he does not cook or does not do it well but has other positive attributes, then he can always learn to cook better.

@paigea I always ask if he need help but 9 times out 10 he says no. Occasionally he will accept my help but often its just my job to set the table and and do the dishes, he's tidy as he works so most of the cooking pots and pans and tools he cleans as he goes..

Wow! I bet you didn't need any lunch! Vince cooks a lot and really enjoys it. I'm happy to eat whatever he makes and I do the cleaning up. Win/win I say.

That is exactly the way it works here too. I love doing dishes, I'm really good a filling the dishwasher too but I wash pots and pans and big thing by hand.

@PainsOnSlate That's what I do. The pots and pans don't fit in the dishwasher so well so I do them by hand too. Vince often rinses the pots if he gets the chance which makes washing up easier.

Well my husband was never in the restaurant business but he is a pretty good cook. He retired first and took over pretty much all of the cooking for a few years. He usually is up first and brings me coffee in bed. Not quite as sweet as it sounds. He wants to watch sports in the living room and bringing me coffee ensures I'll stay in the bedroom to watch the news.

There is a method to his maddness. We are sisters, he is gone to the gym by the time I wake up and his TV is upstairs (full of news and sports) and mine is in the family room with HGTV and my favorite shows. We're both semi retired so there is a lot of together time. It works for me!

I am lucky because my husband loves to cook and can cook better than I can. He has often said if he could do it again, he would have gone to cooking school.

My husband's first job taught him everything about food and prep and making it look good.. He's good at it too. I think practice makes perfect and you don't need to go to school but it couldn't hurt.

@PainsOnSlate my husband is the kind of cook who doesn't really follow recipes, he improvises a lot. He always does it right and spices the food right.

He hasn't worked in the restaurant business since he much younger but he loved his job after food and after getting his masters degree. He always loved to cook but didn't have the time during those busy middle years, now retired he has the time and I love it. i married a great guy who loves me and that is all that matters. Thanks for your kind words.

I tend to ignore house cleaning and I get reminded every time I see my husband with the dust wand...Then I get out the vacuum and do it all in one swing. I feel guilty when he cleans - I wish I didn't.

I do think you are so lucky to be with someone who love you so much and the most important thing is that he can cook some dishes so delicious. And I also want to get married with one who know how to cook, just because I am so lazy.
