Kiss The Cook

I totally spaced on sharing my Thanksgiving photos and I'm certain you've all been on pins and needles waiting around for them. Sorry 'bout that. If you want to check 'em out they're over here on Babble utilizing a new and improved slideshow feature. I crowbarred them into a post about who does the majority of the cooking within our marriage. Can ya guess who it is?


He doesn't do ALL the cooking, mind you. I'd say it's about 70/30 in his favor but you'll have to click on over to find out why. Ooooh, so exciting. You can barely contain yourself, I know! So who does most of the cooking within your relationship? Why?

Well, as the wife, I do close to 100% of the cooking. Why? When I wonder why, I am always left with the only answer that is plausible - because I have a vagina, and it is still 1939 inside my husband's brain. Bless his heart :)

The spouse does, because I am too brain dead after pharmacy school to be trusted to cook alone. I do help about 20% of the time, but sometimes I burn water making my lunch... During vacations from school it's closer to 40/60 with me still on the lower end.

Don't feel so bad about the burned water. I consider myself a pretty good cook and I still burn boiled eggs almost every damn time I make them.

yeah... it's really a huge bonus to have a guy who loves to cook good healthy grub and does it so well. My s/o is like that. He doesn't really enjoy cooking for other people ( besides me) but that's more of social anxiety that keeps him from getting more than a couple of chairs or a dining room set. Guys who cook and can plate it up nicely is a HUGE bonus...and then, if they do dishes? Off the charts. s/o is a bit of a 'prepper' Monica, and I don't mean chopping veggies...the man has 'food insurance'. Enough to stay inside for weeks on end...i won't discuss ammo.

oh i forgot to say, lovely looking Turkeybird, Serge. Nice job. Do you guys make Turkey Frame soup? I did that last year and it's still in freezer bags...not big on frame soup. ew.

I had some even though I haven't had meat since August and the turkey was excellent! Not sure how he pulled that off it being his first time and all. We gave most of the leftovers to the dogs though as we really only made the turkey for Violet, who was acutely aware of its importance on Thanksgiving.

Ok, I'm going to take this opportunity to ask you to please help me navigate the new Babble! I used to read Toddler Times religiously, and ever since they updated their website, I can't figure it out. I go to the 'Blogs' link at the top and click 'Toddler', which appears to take me to their toddler page...but none of the articles are by any of the Toddler TImes authors I'm used to! Clearly I am challenged. Please help!
