I was so busy sewing over the weekend and sure didn't feel like cooking so thought I'd try something. My Roomie HATES canned spaghetti, so I set a can out on the cabinet where I usually do my set-up and prep for dinner. He came in, saw the can, and immediately asked if I would be up to going out for dinner. I'm going to try that again tomorrow . . . I'll let you know if it works again.

I've done that! My hubby doesn't like regular spaghetti so that's what I sit out and not use.

Let me know if it works for more than 1 day in a row. I usually just try it about once a month or so.

Hugs,

LOL! I need to try that too Sandy!

In all honesty sometimes I am SO busy with the house and the wee one he comes in sees there is no dinner and suggests take-out. Bless him! :D

I am spoiled. My hubby does the majority of the cooking... I am the assistant chef and clean up specialist. I prefer to bake!
Mind you he HATES creamed corn. I love it so have to have it when he is on afternoon shift.

I'm like Sally. My DH cooks allot. Also, he's very easy to please so he eats whatever I cook.

Does anyone really eat canned spaghetti?

That sort of seems like those frozen peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Who can't make one from scratch?

We have a pretty good arrangement-DH makes breakfast, I make supper. Lunch is a toss-up.

I am so enjoying all the comments - but that was a joke that someone told last night at our guild - I just had to share. I am lucky as I have the easiest hubby to please when it comes to cooking and I love to cook. He will, if asked, take me out if I just don't feel up to turning on the stove, but will eat anything I put in front of him and he never fails to tell me "thank you" and rave about how good it is

. . . except for the time I attempted Peking Duck . . . or the Avocado Soup when we lived in California . . .

My DH will eat anything I put on the table. Sandy, your trick won't work from me because there is NOWHERE to eat out here other than Sonic and that doesn't fly with either of us:)

Haha, Sonic is my evil pleasure! First off, they are the ONLY ones I know that serve tater tots, and every once in a while I give in and have a coney aka chili cheese dog. They aren't even all that good, but sometimes it just hits the spot.

Sandy, that is too funny. You had me going.

For those who would like a good and easy spaghetti sauce...


Spaghetti Sauce

Large recipe: (I usually freeze part of it for using later)

3/4 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
3 Tbsp. salad oil
2-1 lb. Cans (4 cups) tomatoes
2-6 ounce cans tomato paste
1 cup water
1 tsp. sugar
1-1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1-1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1 bay leaf

1. Cook onion and garlic in oil until tender, but not brown. Stir in rest
of ingredients.

2. Simmer on low heat uncovered 30 minutes or until desired
consistency.

3. Remove bay leaf.

Yield: 4 or 8 servings.


Note: I usually use diced tomatoes and blend the sauteed onions/garlic with them to make the sauce smooth in consistency. I use this recipe for pizza, too.

LOL Sandy, Sandy...You had me going. When I met my DH, he ate chili straight out of the can at 11 pm. He worked full-time and went to college full-time on the VA bill. ; ) Even worse was chicken noodle soup, without diluting it. UGH!

We use to eat out alot, now we're on a budget, but more important, we're on the 15th floor, get in the car, drive 15 minutes to...McD, Kentucky Fried Chicken, LocoMoco (Hamburger Patty, Rice with Gravy Poured over it), Starbucks, drive 15 minutes back, 15 floors up, cold what ever. Nah, I'll just have to make dinner. Sigh!

What a jokester you are! You had us all going!!! Too blasted funny. I do most of the cooking, but really enjoy it now that I am retired and have more time. When it gets cooler, I'll try and make stuff on the weekends and then have leftovers for the week! Will try your sauce recipe, Bec! Thank you for sharing. I might even make a pan of lasagna. If I am out, he resorts to mac and cheese or cheese and crackers.....he loves either!

Sounds like a neat trick if it would work. My hubby is pretty easy to please, and doesn't mind going out or we have two places that will deliver, a good hamburger place and pizza. He's always been very good about telling me how good it was. Tonight was pork chops and rice in the crock pot and a spinach salad with vinegarette. He made it home from work before I got back from town, and the first thing he said to me was "What's for supper, it smells licious. Can't complain about that. I never ask him what he wants or is in the mood for, his standard answer is FOOD.

Same here. My DH is so easy going he'll eat anything I make. He's also so very helpful and cooks if I can't. Of course, he's never opposed to going out. We've always claimed, "the best thing to make for dinner is reservations"!

Just wanted to say that while in Hawaii a few years ago we fell in love with LocoMoco. I have even tried to make it several times at home. Its good but not as good as we had in Hawaii. Yum!! My DH will eat anything I fix. We are big veggie eaters and don't eat alot of meat. We do however love a good hamburger and a yummy ribeye now and then.

Good trick to try for all those married folks. Can't say that I blame him for not liking canned spagetti....yuck!
