i think i do 80% of it...my husband is a really good cook and i love when he cooks. he'll cook a couple nights a week.


do you have a weekly night designated to a certain food? some people have spaghetti night or pizza night, etc.

We cook pretty much equally. We're both terrible cooks, so it's no big deal.
Any big meals or baking are usually me though.

Its about 50 / 50. We both really enjoy cooking so we try and take turns. We used to have spaghetti every Sunday night, but now we have no set days for anything.

I do most of it, at least on weekdays. DH has some things that he cooks very well, and he is the baker too. Lately he has made french toast on weekends I wish he had more time bc he would be happy to split the cooking more and he is a very good cook and an even better dessert baker. He is sort of wasted on me with my sugar issues... then again if he were married to a woman with a big sweet tooth, they would both be obese by now I reign him in!

Mostly DH. I hate to cook. Hate it.

I would say I cook once a week and he does the other six days. Right now Tuesdays are usually a day I get something out or delivered because DH has class and I am home all day with the boys. Liam has music class at 5:30 and we grab something on the way home or have it scheduled to be delivered shortly after we get home. But that is only til school is over in April.

i do. dh is dare i say useless in the kitchen. He never had to learn. he lived at home, and then was in the army, so he always had someone cooking for him.

he can make a mean box of Kraft Dinner though!

It changes. I'd say about 50/50, but sometimes I might do more and sometimes there might be weeks where my husband does it all!

It probably works out to 50/50. We have times where we are super lazy and do a ton of easy stuff, and he will often do a lot of those meals. Then we get into stretches with more big meals and freezer cooking and that is usually me. I do all the baking, though.

I cook 99% of the time. DF works nights, so he sleeps until 6:30pm, sometimes later if he ignores me when I try to wake him. He cooks great when he does cook though! No set days for anything... I just stare blankly at the fridge and cabinet, then google recipes and make surprises. lol. Some days I make food DF says is good enough to make again.. other days he doesn't like it and tells me never again.

And why does he not cook more Sarah? Hmmm. Is he bad at it? Or does he not like too? There have been PLENTY of nights that DH will like BEG to cook, he loves it so much.

There's someone else in my house capable of cooking?

Yea right. It's all me, all the time, unless I'm in a truly pathetic state and can't get out of bed or something. Then he might microwave me something

Somehow we've fallen into this pattern of the first night of the month after we've gone grocery shopping, we have tacos. BF loves tacos.

I do 100% of the cooking. If I won't be home for supper and he is responsible for feeding Avery he goes to his moms

Actually that's not true. The other night he did make us sausages and perogies. That was the first time he had cooked in about 3 years.

I do 95% of the cooking. Once in a while DH will make pancakes or french toast for breakfast. He is also in charge of the grill.

It isn't that DH can't cook, but he isn't here for lunch and when he gets home from work we need to sit down and eat, so it works better for me to do it. He also has a tendency to make things so spicy that I can't eat them I don't mind...I enjoy cooking and think I'm pretty good at it...and Claire LOVES to help.

The only thing DH cooks is pancakes on sundays. I do all the rest.

Me and my daughter always spent time in the kitchen. I train her so much and now she cooked well.

Dave seems to cook more and more and more. Drake is really attached to me and sometimes I am not able to stand there and cook. Well I *can* but he tugs at me and wants me. I have cooked holding him, but he likes to touch things now so that is a big no no.
