    Same here. Plus I'm the grocery-getter and the one who cleans up afterward. Everyone here is happier for this.

    Hubby can and will cook. He requires direction to get stuff right. Our house rule is 1 cooks the other cleans. He prefers dishes and I'm good with that. No matter the mess I make he does not complain.

    He'll be cooking and cleaning for the next few weeks as I'll not be allowed to stand in the kitchen for any length of time. He's up for it! Guy's a keeper

    It turns out I like having dd2 living with us. She keeps confirming that all the things I think dh is doing, that he says he isn’t doing - he is actually doing. I am not crazy.

    I have tried and tried and tried. But I just want to be honest with myself. I don't like cooking.

    I just can't lie to myself about. And I am done trying to like it.

    So I have thought of a new approach to no cooking but also not going out to restaurants all the time.

    I dont like it either so keep it extremely simple. Excellent ingredients kept simple makes life easy. I joke with my husband that I am the queen of the 10 minute meal. There is a whole lot I can do with a Costco already cooked chicken. Almost everything is simply cooked at 400 degrees without a lot of extra sauces or things.
