    Default Can I just say this - I really don't like cooking.

    I'm not good at it. My mother was not a good example either. I rather detest it actually. Sigh......

    Once, when I was in the teacher's lounge when my daughter was in grade school (I was subbing) I made the statement that I would cook every day if someone would just do the dishes for me. The principle looked at me and said "Will you marry me?" She hated cooking and loved to clean. I told her mu hubby might complain about that one.

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?

    Not a big fan here either - actually, I don't mind the actual cooking part - it is the deciding and shopping that are my biggest pet peeves. I used to hate fixing something for supper and either the husband or son would say "I had that for lunch" and didn't want to eat it. Or that we had 3 or 4 favorites that they wanted all of the time.

    We have tried some of the cook a bunch in a day for the freezer meals and that has worked well for us. Here is the site that we have used - it actually has recipes that we will eat. A month of freezer meals in one afternoon Now, we decide the night before what we are going to eat the next night and take it out of the freezer. One day of major cooking and mess and we have meals for quite awhile. We don't eat them every day, but we really like it.

    I'm not just buying fabric, I am supporting the economy...

    A bad day in the sewing room is better than a good day at the office.

    Good luck Pat! Megan, I don't like to cook either. If I lived alone, I'd only cook for company...maybe.

    I like to food shop too, if I have a list. I'm actually making Sandy's Yum chicken tonight for the second time. It was yum! Then I bought the ingredients to make turkey/sausage meatballs for the freezer. I was a baker and like to make foccatia bread with kalamata olives to stick in the freezer too, I portion those out into squares.

    I loath cooking. I'll bake any day of the week though. For me, baking is not cooking!! My husband took over the cooking years ago. Told me he'd rather not die of food poisoning.

    I don't mind cleaning up, easy enough to do. If he's making a big meal I clean as he goes.

    I don't hate cooking, I'm just tired of it after more than 40 years. Plus my husband has his favorites and doesn't like to try new things. He mostly wants to eat beef and potatoes. I really don't cook much anymore, partially because he's usually not ready to eat until 8 or 9 at night and I'm too tired to want to cook and cleanup that late.
