Don’t deny! You actually HATE cooking, and no it isn’t that you CAN’T…you just don’t want to. I raise my hand proudly for this one. But what does it matter? At this point I think it’s hysterical that my husband acts surprised when he asks “What’s for lunch?” ….dude you’re lucky to get dinner….lunch is truly PUSHING IT. For me, it’s such a daunting task for something so frivolous. Don’t get me wrong, I love good food…but I have a complex that my time is worth something, so picking up is the routine alternative. I’m not ashamed to admit this.
I have been with my husband for 13 years, married for almost 4….and FINALLY it’s not such a surprise that I don’t have something ready to eat when he walks through the door. And hopefully, he realizes that the way to a man’s heart is not through his stomach (fingers crossed), trust me there are many other ways! I do keep him guessing though by pulling together a great tasty meal every once in a while. So the argument can’t be made “it’s okay if you think you can’t cook now…just keep trying”. He knows I can, but sadly he must cope with my short patience to attend to a cooking chicken. Nah, I’d rather be reading, watching tv, working out, and doing whatever else I want to do….selfish, I know I know. But hey, by the evening I’ve worked all day and I’ve used all my words so please spare me the judgment. The thought of standing on my feet, debating over ingredients, and watching like a hawk for the signs of things to finally be done cooking is worse to me than just eating two Oreo’s and calling it dinner.
I’ve come to terms that it’s okay I don’t enjoy cooking, hopefully Adam has ;). I’m not saying I won’t ever change my mind, but right now…it isn’t high on my list of things to conquer. Luckily, Adam loves me and even helps cook….so all is not lost because I don’t have a meal on the table three times a day. We all adjust to life together and that is the great thing about marriage. Let it go if every time you go to boil water for pasta, you’d rather dump it on your head.
