Cooking is a big NO NO for me. hahaha. It's okay for me to prepare the ingredients needed and be an assistant of my mother while cooking but I really don't like to be the one who's doing 'real cooking' in front of the stove. I don't know why but i prefer washing dishes.

That's just is rhane, I don't mind doing the dishes, the part I hate is putting them up. It takes longer to wash them then putting them away, yet I can't stand that part. The good thing is, I now have that as one of my son's chores. I make him put them away lol

Using a dishwasher. I find it time consuming to load, wasteful of water, and takes WAY too long to get the dishes all cleaned up. I can hand wash the whole lot in a sink and be done long before the dishwasher. I have saved time, water, and expensive dishwasher chemicals. I have also had fun satisfying my logical processing of things: plates first, glasses next, cutlery (sorted into knives, forks, spoons to make them go faster and easier to dry and put away), pots/pans/misc. Such a satisfying feeling when I'm done. Clean cupboards, no having to come back to unload and put away in an hour or so.

lol, When we bought this house I told my husband I didn't think we needed to order a dishwasher. I had never had one before. He was insistant that I have one even if I chose not to use it. I wouldn't give it up for anything now. Sometimes I will completely stop using it, then I'll go back to it. One thing I like is being able to fill it all through out the day. Around here they feed all day long which is annoying and it leaves me with glasses, saucers and all kinds of dishes piling up. I just fill the dishwasher as I go through the day. At the end of the day I set it on rinse, then wash. My son is old enough now, and I have him unload it, which he thinks is just awful.
