me, oh i do not care .Whatever you would like or want to fix will be find.I get so pis*** when he tells me that.So I put a note center by the refrig asking them for a little input to let me know what they would like something for dinner.Not everyday just a few days a week, any day of the week.No one has used it..Does any one have a hard time planning meals 290 days a year or am I the only one ?Planning dinner night after night gets old. let me know if I am a bad wife and mother for feeling this way.

There is nothing wrong with you .. as a wife, a mother and a woman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hate getting that answer too!!! And hate it even more when after saying that, I make something and he goes" huh.. it wasn't really this that I felt like having.. " Grrrrrrrrrrrr The same thing with the kids... I love to cook and don't mind making something even a bit more elaborate if they ask me, but after over 20 years I am tired of being the only person responsible for planning all the meals. Of course for them is hard too, they usually have no idea of what they want.Food.. whatever it is :) I tried the note too, asking them to help me planning some meals and got very few responses. So I changed the idea a little bit and tried again. Instead of asking them to write what they want for dinner,I have a small bag in the kitchen table with a variety of meals written in small papers. The first person to enter the kitchen has to take one paper and put it in the refrigerator door. That will be the meal for the night. This worked both ways too, because sometimes they don't like the meal they took out of the bag and unless they give me another idea that is what they will get:) Of course there are days where I have my own plans for a meal but this works nicely when i don't.
