I cook each evening. Weekends I have time to something more elaborate. During the week it is a race to get dinner on the table. I do use spice pastes for Indonesian dishes. They are easy to use and make tasty dishes. Then it is just cook rice, make a salad and ready.

Last night we had some leftovers so I added some turkey sausages and dinner was ready.

My main problem is catering to five different people with different likes and dislikes.

I'm the COOK


I do all the cooking in my house. Not by design but, by necessity. My wife is COPD and on 0-2/ 24/7. She does good just to fix her yogurt and muffin in the AM if I'm sleeping in. :D

Since I'm retired it is not oo much of a strain, except deternining what to fix. A person can only eat so many beans!

No, just kidding. I like to make Swiss Steak, Baby Back Ribs on the BBQ, country ribs with saurkrout in the presure cooker, Porkepine meat balls in the pressure cooker. Of course, hambuger every way in the book.

I really enjoy these cooking forums. Always getting new ideas and help.

Enjoy,
Charlie

My DH fixes his own breakfast and lunch, but I make dinner every night. I love to cook and usually it's completely from scratch. He helps with the cleanup, he's a very good cleaner upper. We don't eat out really often and when we do it's most often lunch with an occasional dinner.

I guess it isn't too much of a surprise that vitually everyone who answered cooks most of the time, whatever sex or age! Silly me. On the last web site I participated in, I got the distinct feeling that a lot of people were "weekend chefs extraordinaire", and when I posed the question, got no answers (SUR-PRISE, SUR-PRISE, as a certain sitcom charactor would say). Too many people there said they only used the purest of ingredients, the most expensive of kitchen equipment, never used shortcuts. To be fair, I think maybe more were "pros", but that means not having to put food on the table for their kids every day. This site seems more practically oriented, but with still a helpful touch from the .... well, new question coming up.
