    Re: old school

    My hubby cook???? Don't think so. My kids were just talking last night about something that happened about 9 years ago. She was 9 and he was 10 and I was working 12 hour home health nursing shifts. He attempted to make mac and cheese. When I got home the kids pulled me in their bedroom (they had been "instructed" not to tell me) to tell me that daddy not only burned the mac and cheese but caught his shirt on fire. He never tried to cook after that.
    The average woman would rather have beauty than brains, because the average man can see better than he can think.

      Speaking of dh cooking and mac and cheese-mine decided to make some a few years ago, of course didn't bother to read the directions completely, just added milk, butter and cheese sauce package to the water as the macaroni was boiling-what a pasty mess!

        Ya know, my DH was a fair to middlin' cook, except that is one thing that I enjoy doing in the house. Many years ago, when I would work a Saturday, he would actually make the evening meal. These days, if I suggest he cook, he asks me what restaurant I want to visit. Not that I mind eating out, but it just isn't the same.

        When kids were younger, on weekends, the rule was that if you cooked, you did not have to clean up. The kids would line up for prep work if it meant not having to do the dishes.
        Communicate. It can't make things any worse!

          too funny, Mine has tried to cook and the results are usually disasterous. His attempt at boxed mac and cheese was inedible.

              Babe is a good cook. My gripe is that no matter who cooks... he piddles around the kitchen until I've eaten and the food is cold. He doesn't care if it's hot. I do! Consequently, we never eat together anymore. Grrrrr.

                  My mom died in 1970 when I was just shy of 13, so I HAD to teach myself to cook FAST or my brother and I would've starved. Dad "tried" but he was used to my mom doing all the cooking and he's like that with my step-mother as well. My brother and I still to this day tease Dad about his "wall paper paste noodle soup" and "Burger King Sunday Dinners", lol.

                  DH is for the most part very self-sufficient with cooking and grills better than I do. I think it's because my FIL was all about food, enjoyed it tremendously and cooked all the time. You could never leave my in-laws' house when FIL was alive without a "care package" of whatever to take home.

                  I totally LOVE cooking and have tried to influence our two sons to "fend" for themselves. DD is getting better at it all the time now that she is own her own.

                    my DH can barely reheat in microwave. I doubt he could turn the stove on. When i was in hospital for 6 weeks my kids lived on fast food or whatever my mom fed them when she watched em. They were Jonesing for my cooking!!

                      DH does BBQ but that's it. He uses the micro for popcorn.

                        My DH is a great cook. He was a chef in a restaurant awhile back. He knows more gourmet items than simple family stuff. He can take things from my pantry and create a wonderful meal that is amazing. He is an excellent griller too. I taught all 3 of my kids to cook. My DS1 is a cook at Red Lobster and DS2 has worked in restaurants too. They both love to cook and want to open a family restaurant some day. My DD like to cook a little bit but more with my DH than I. I am a bit more structured as a cook and have to do certain things where he is the open the pantry and freezer doors and lets create. My dad never cooked except on the BBQ. If it was up to him to cook we went out to dinner. Lets just say the pizza, chinese, and burger joints near us knew him well. When mom wasn't up to cooking we ordered take out. They would say "Must be Max's day to cook".
